Fall Quarter, Senior Year (1998)
The girls at 35 W. Washington actually threw a party!! Here they are minus
one: Alina, Kara, Cat, Jenny, and Kellie. I guess Autumn was out
looking for a straw, perhaps.
Oney, Leake, and Huss. Jeff has his eyes shut, so everything must have
been going according to normal.
Still in the kitchen: Huss with Kara, Nikki, Kellie, and Jenny.
Here's Alina, Sears, and Jenny at the beginning of the night during a party we
threw in 402A.
Playing cards: Tom, Alina, Missy, and Autumn. Seating room was never
prevalent at our place, nor was it a priority when it became crowded. The
name of the game was sheer number of people that could fit.
Rick and Neal, best of friends.
Now this is a little unusual: Morton and Leake on the apartment table
simultaneously. I've no idea what's going on off camera that would prompt
that look of astonishment.
Uh-oh. Tom's getting giggly.
There were many a night a few of us would delay the trip uptown with the rest of
the crowd in order to.......well........in order to do whatever the hell we
wanted to, really. Here Huss is demonstrating his physical prowess as Kurt
looks on bewiderment.
Kurt soon caught on, though, and Tom was never one to disappoint when it came to
Jeff and Ryan. She took it upon herself to try to show me how
to swingdance that night. I think she overestimated my abilities........
........And then just gave up.
Morton's cousin, Josh, was visiting from Kansas for the weekend. For some
reason he decided to spend the night on the counter, pack of smokes firmly in
A fine speciman of a man.
Crashing that night, anywhere there was a spot. Jeff's on the recliner,
Jake (Tom's buddy from home), Darlene, and Morton's cousin on the floor.
Halloween in our apartment, Saturday night. From right to left:
Derek, Kara, Nate, and one of Derek's buddies. I thought the devil costume
was so appropriate for her.
Jill and Tom, fully dressed in their Halloween costumes.
A thorn with three roses, all Mentor High School graduates, class of '95:
Jeff, Marjie, Becky, and Holly. Also, once I'm done, all OU grads.
Some of these guys I don't know, visitors from out of town. Missy, Jenny,
Cat, and Alina (Raggedy-Ann). And I know that's my boy Spears standing up
in the background. He was a friend of Alina's from Toledo, cool guy.
And the Miami University Synchronized Swim Team stopped by the apartment.
Probably the best costume I've yet to see here at OU, had a routine and
everything. I have more pictures from this Halloween you can access from
the pictures page, or just click here: Fall
Quarter, Senior Year (1998)
And the end of the night, however, tragedy struck. Our beloved coffee
table, a staple for any party involving dancing, took a severe hit.
....we brought it back, better than before. You could park a Volkswagen on
that thing today and she'd hold, trust me. Of course, it came with the
apartment so that's where it had to stay once we moved out. I'll miss that
Typcial morning after picture: Jeff with a dumb look on his face and
Our friend, Dominique, had a party at her place on Foster St. Jeff and
Ryan went there straight from a "cocktail party".
