2002 Feb 22 Prospective Students Visiting
The party has just started, as the Penn linguistics grad students eagerly await the arrival of prospective students... (And Paul is getting impatient...)
Turning off the flash of my camera reveals eerie green lighting in my own kitchen... (And everyone is still waiting...)
Pleased with that lighting effect, I try another shot, while everyone smiles goofily...
Trying to catch winter olympics
TK and Tom, having a deep conversation on appropriate party music...
My broken futon. It just couldn't take the collective weight of Alan, Sophia, Zhiyi and Dan.
In a surge of mixed feelings of responsibility and embarrassment, the gang tries to repair the piece of furniture...
Hooray!! It's fixed!!
A rather early attempt to start up a dancing inferno...
Sophia tries hard...
Party going on. TK is camera-conscious.
Uri and Zhiyi
Uri, Zhiyi and TK
Justin shying away
"Hmm... I wonder what wonderful songs are on Na-Rae's super cool mp3 playlist..."
And surely, inferno breaks out! No linguist can resist ABBA...
John joins Sophia...
Sergio takes the hand of a prospective student...
Soon they are dancing blues...
Taking a break
The less-known Creswell girl smiles at camera
"Stop, Justin Mott!! You're not allowed near the stereo"
"But I love 'Bootylicious' so much!!"
Feeling abandoned, prospective students converse with each other
Yeah!! Big cheese for me!!
Suzanne, Ron, and Tom
Dan and Uri, giggling like girls
Dan showing off his dark side
Sophia invites Dan to the floor...
And soon enough...
Daniel Johnson, up close
Zhiyi and Alan marvel at digital wonders, while my coffee table is suffering a damage
The coffee table breaks down
Voila!! Good as new
Tom McFadden snarls
Tom McFadden squints
"But you see, historical syntax is so misunderstood..."
Ron joins in
"Um, ok, you can have the whole floor."
Tom Mcfadden makes a kissy face
Sophia on a break
Making my best photo face
