Rainbow Snow

I only have time for a quick post I have to head back up to campus tonight. It's FRENCH TOAST FRENZY night! It's the night when staff and faculty take over the cafeteria and cook eggs, bacon, French toast, and cinnamon rolls and serve the students who are supposedly taking a break from studying for final exams. The semester officially ended Friday - this week is finals week - then it is Home for the Holidays for the 'kids'.

The veteran students LOVE French Toast Frenzy. It's always fun to see the freshman experience their first FTF! Somehow seeing the dean of students serve up bacon and the university president serving up cinnamon rolls delights them! There is also karaoke going on and massages from a local spa. And my duty for the evening? I cook scrambled eggs. Actually - I bail half an hour into egg cooking to go take photos of the students wolfing down 'brain food' and belting out a song or two on stage. It is a fun night for all!
