Pics from the annual URGO BBQ
So apparently, every year, Augsburg's Office of Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity (URGO) holds a BBQ at Dick and Sandra Olmsted's beautiful house/property (estate?) in Vadnais Heights, MN. Being the introvert I am (I know, I know, it's hard to believe, but nothing relaxes me more than a good book read alone, in silence), I was being a little bitch about going (not to mention their house is forever away, and I've already used up all the money I budgeted for gas this month--something I was not alone in worrying about), but I'm SO glad I did! Sandra remembered my sister, Cherish (actually, she remembered a lot about her--what classes she took, when she got married, etc.), and I got to spend some quality time with Erica (who's studying symbolism in fashion), Alex (who's writing etudes for learning musicians), Becki (who's studying the historical/literary context and implications of the Victorian quarterly, The Yellow Book), Andrew (who's studying something I can't remember) and the rest of the gang. It's pretty cliche to say "good times were had by all" (not to mention, doesn't it sound a little grammatically incorrect?), but it's SO TRUE.
