HAPPY BIRTHDAY FIDEL

The glorious comrade leader Fidel Castro celebrates his 80th year on this day. May this news be known and heralded throughout the land, on this greatest of all days.

May he live to torment many more Presidents (9 so far), and may some other nation form an alliance and build a nuclear missile emplacement in Cuba.

Unfortunately my desk and room are covered with books of political theory, so the activity seems to exclude me (hum Machiavelli, Cicero, or Plutarch, which to take?

Now it the time to buckle down, 15 page paper and a 3 hour final on Tuesday, all while desperately trying to spend all my time will all the amazing people here, though I still miss the first session kids, -sniff- and a few late night political/philosophical debates have turned really nasty. One girl was distressed to tears and spent 2-2:30 am crying to my roommate (this from the attacks of a guy from Hollis south not me, I was on her side). We've had our first signs of elitist attacks on public school kids by the huge private school contingent. For the first time I'm glad I didn't graduate early and go to New England Private school. It's fine, it's happy, it's great.

It appears, when they call Boston a "city" what they mean, is "massive open air oven"! The heat is ungodly, but no one has said "hey I can really feel the global warming!" so things are OK. I can't start my essay that counts for half one of my classes, because my professor refuses to meet with me to approve my topic.
I'd really like to go see the University of Toronto, so I guess I'll need to talk some one into going with me in the final week before school starts, (ha ha, it's some one with whom to go and not some one to take me!
Last Thursday my Team won the Trivia Bowl, so tonight the dorm gets it's absurd amounts of Ice cream party, about which everyone is excited -Hooray- It is a particularly appropriate day to have this event me thinks, as "Satan has breathed, and the earth melted" so. Yeah, not to much to say. I haven't been able ot get in touch with my friend in California, where, apparently it's been around 320 Kelvin (115 F), and since were only dealing with 308 Kelvin at most, I loose confidence in my ability to survive on this planet, as It does or may soon exist.
Greetings from Hell/Harvard, wish you were here!

Last Night I went to the rocky Horror Picture Show for the second time. I wore my spandex ski top, knee socks, and a skirt. It was really comfortable and terrific experience, and all of you can rely on there being a whole school cross-dress day during spirit week this year, you can also rely on there actually being a spirit week this year. Of course one of the people with whom I went was dressed like a hooker in 4 inch heels, fishnet stockings, a mini-skirt etc. however he looked like a nun compared to a few of the people there. The guy who played Rocky jumped out at the end wearing nothing but duct tape, and nearly caused me to gouge out my eyes for the horrour.
Well all the short session I kids moved out on Friday, and we were all very lonely yesterday, now I'm just waiting for the Short Session II kids to show up, and all the other people who left for the weekend to return. It's very sad and lonely. Virtually all of my friends left virtually all at once, and saying good-bye to Liz took 20 minutes and caused me to start crying. However, I am going to California to visit sometime in the near future (hold me to that promise, please), and hey, we get 12 new people to fill the dorm with activity and laughter once more, ah wahhhhhhh, so sad, I miss them so much. We were so close as a dorm loosing anyone would be extremely difficult, but all at once, worst of all we get to do it all again on August 18, then I come home and: ROAD TRIP !! preferably to some part of Canada.

I wonder how I did on my APUS Exam?

yeah that's right, I received a perfect score on both the AP and SAT2 in the history of a nation I fundamentally hate and wish to dissolve, excellent. However, so long as I put those two numbers on the top of my transcript in large bold letters the idle/wandering eye will be enticed in and trapped.

The people here are greater than imagination could fathom.
I love you Liz, should you ever read this, take a moment to feel self-righteous and truly good. May you be blessed with happiness forever and ever amen.

I finally understand proof theory, and I'll make deductive logic my bitch from here on out. Ha-HA.

Or Phone (617)493-3543, except you'll probably get my room mate Gary who would be interesting to talk to.

I am in Deductive Logic and Republic and Republicanism (NOT about the Republican party in any way), they are both a mix of High School, college and Grad-students, some of whom are 40+ years old.
They're both great, The whole dorm plans to attend the 4th of July festivities,along with an estimated number of other people significantly greater than the population of Vermont.

So, I saw the new Superman in the downtown Lowes super madness theatre, and found that all character development for the title role was done by having him stare in exactly the same way at a variety of different things, he only had one real "line " as such. Well, it was very impressive.

Here I am, a student in the summer term at Harvard, living in a massive double on the ground floor of Hollis Hall, right in the middle of Harvard Yard. I am taking classes from two really very perfect nutty professors, who are insane in massively different ways. My classes are full of arrogant, intense Grad students who never really understand anything, but are loud nonetheless. One of my classes has a couple of 40+ year old, and a rising Junior who apparently hasn't hit puberty yet, and has the highest voice I've heard from a boy since third grade if not longer. My dorm is full of great people, except for when you get up on the FOURTH FLOOR! Heaven Forbid! However today it's raining, and we finally have a respite from the massive tour groups of asian people walking through and playing with the NON FUNCTIONAL! wooden water pump on the green in front of the building. I have people ask me for directions at least five times a day, and it took me half an hour to figure out how to open my mail-box, which was, and continues to be empty.

Well, the food is really good, and all the people are at least reasonably smart, so I'll take it. Besides, they gave us various items of clothing etc. emblazoned with HARVARD SUMMER SCHOOL, which, if you actually wear, you are shunned as a Nerd.

But we have the COOP! Hooray!

As it is after midnight, I go to Harvard tomorrow! The event I have anticipated for the last six months, the great adventure, the time of reckoning, and fodder for tremendous debates in the Merriam-Youngblood household, it has come, and it is just sinking in. Ha, Ha, TRIUMPH!! I'm going to Harvard for the summer, Ha, Ha!! Excellent!

How I love the world, how I love you all!

I LOVE YOU ALL !! (normally I hate all caps!)

(Once again Hamas, not me celebrating)

Anyone who would care to reach me over the next 10 weeks will find my e-mail account at: jpmerr@fas.harvard.edu

Also, gold is off it's highs, and now is the time to get in on it! You heard it here first, since you weren't listening anywhere else.

So, I went to the girls Lacross game, and enjoyed getting profoundly drenched and frozen, but only on the upwind side. Would have been better if the team hadn't lost 11-2, even if they could have lost by the snow bowl score (9-3) that would have been better. And wonderful and amazing Erica was responsible for neith goal. Oh well. I was going to go up with TP (whether or not that was a good idea), but he couldn't get off work so I borrowed my mom's car and almost died three times on the way up to Burlington. I Ran over this big plastic/wire slinky and I dragged it for 20 miles, with it caught somewher on the underside of the car. All the nice Vermont people gestured wildly to try to let me know, but it took 20 minutes for them to get their point across. I was really worried that something really bad had happened, but everything was totally fine. I did feel dumb driving by myself all that way. Oh well, the only other state championships I ever go to are in skiing, and we have no chance at all at those.

I don't care if there are any mis-spellings in this document

So, graduation, it was last night, ushering was just terrific now them wasn't it everyone. However balanced with all the people we're losing and the fact that I could and probably should have been up there it was pretty generally depressing for me. So now beings my second year as a senior, and the year when I have the key to the ski room and thus put my name with the great responsible members in the history of Ski team (Danny K. and Eric).

People are telling me that I'm writing my ticket to Williams, which winning the William's college book award can't hurt, but an entire year of Erica and Dan devoid High School hardly seems worth it.

God life sucks, doesn't it :-)
