To gig or not to gig

That is the question our latest political commentator must answer every week. What am I talking about? Not what, who. Our very own Sarah Hope has been recruited to write political commentary for a new Aggie journal/blog called AggieWire.

It hasn't launched yet but they have assembled their staff and are putting together their inaugural issue. The really cool thing is that they sought Sarah out. They had read some of her posts on various web properties like FaceBook and liked them so much they went to her and asked her to join the team. Pretty impressive huh?

By the way, for those of you not from these parts, one of the Aggie calls is "gig'em Aggies" it's like "go Irish" or "roll tide". Gig or to gig is from the Latin gigorous which means to poke with a sharp stick. Used in a sentence one might say "Gee Paw, we was just gig'en frogs"

Will your candidate be poked with a sharp stick? Gig'em Sarah

They have a different word for everything!

In the immortal words of Steve Martin, "the French, they have a different word for everything!" Well Katie and some of her friends in the French Club went to find out in person. A group of about 16 people embarked on a tour through Paris, Normandy and several small towns in between.

There were square trees, long dinners, famous landmarks and people who tucked their chin into ther neck and said "haww haww hawwww" to keep them busy for 9 days. During that time Katie took over 800 pictures and videos (I was so proud) which you will be forced to watch now. OK maybe it's just some of the good ones.
