|Update on site-based stupidity: still no word
on when, if ever, the old version of the site will be replaced by
redirects; its files are still missing on FTP.|
The domains http://www.westofbathurst.com and http://www.westofbathurst.ca now both point to this page, which has been renamed (the URL http://www.masseycollege.ca/alumni/westofbathurst.html willredirect you here after a brief wait).
Thank you, Faithful Reader SunshineRain, for pointing out the bizarre thematic coincidence now occurring over at Piled Higher and Deeper. Curiouser and curiouser indeed.*
*Jorge Cham has his character Cecilia change "Curiouser and curiouser" to "More and more curious," which is, of couse, the grammatically correct version of "Curiouser and curiouser." I cannot help but be vastly amused that Cecilia has done this. She's a grad student, so I suspect she can't help herself.

|Panel 1: At the Davies College Winter Ball, Casey approaches Marie, who is dressed as Alice from the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland.|
Casey: Wasn't that your Hallowe'en costume?
Marie: I went as Alice before I knew about the Winter Ball's theme. I decided to recycle the outfit tonight.
Casey: But you're the Disney Alice. The ball is specifically celebrating the Tenniel illustrations.
Marie: It's not a big deal, Casey.
Panel 3: Marie is suddenly flanked by Wendy, who is dressed as the Queen of Hearts, and a young woman dressed as the Tenniel Alice.
Wendy: Ooh, major faux pas!
Alice: Do you know what horrors Disney visited upon my beloved Alice? You deserve death!
Casey [smirks]: Welcome to Davies, where the fine print really, really matters.
Marie: With each passing day, my hatred for you grows stronger and more pure.
Alt-Text: I actually don't know whether the Massey Winter Ball will be based SPECIFICALLY on Tenniel, but if it were, I can almost guarantee that a conversation very similar to this one would occur at some point in the evening.
