I mean seriously, what the heck happened? It seems like an eternity ago I was studying(surfing the internet.) listening to Bach(Rebecca Black) and contemplating the infinite(If Charlie Sheen and Muammar Gadaffi fought, who would win?). But now I am back, as are you I presume, and staring at the blank screen that is my PC and wondering how I can spring into the second half of the semester?
Oh…that’s right, wonderful events by the Stars’ Lounge! I should have thought about that sooner.
Alright, looking down the list here we have…
Better than your grandmother's cookies
Oh yeah! That thing I’ve been talking(griping) about for weeks now. Look, I don’t expect you to be a super duper gamer who can tell the difference between the Water Temple and Squirtle( Two totally separate genre of video-games), but if you do come out with some of your friends, I’ll guarantee a good time.
Now, for those who were dissuaded by my logical, sarcastic and convincing rhetoric, there is always Late Night. Ah, Late Night. The Glory of lights, music and this month’s theme is….oh crap, video-games.
Look, don’t walk away. Keep that mouse.Right.Here.
Obviously the universe is telling you something fellow UISer. You need to play video-games. Just this week. Maybe you play all the time. Maybe you were touched by a Nintendo in the third grade and you’ve never forgiven it. Or maybe you break down taboos you associated with this joyous machine and give it a whirl.
Late Night=Great Night
Some sweet events coming up for you after Spring break, but first lets go over some important spring break tips.
1: Do “Feed the Animals”
“Feed the Animals” is an album by GirlTalk and it will change your worldview. Well, that is a bit of a stretch, but if you party with friends or by yourself, this album will keep you pumped throughout break.
2: Spring Clothing
For the rest of Spring Break, it will be a nice 60 degrees, but partly cloudy. So grab a nice hoodie and enjoy the limited sun!
Lots and lots of condoms. I think the reason is obvious, even if you are on birth control, use condoms!
4: Drink Lots of Water
More than half of our bodies are made of water. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that we should keep a nice cool glass. It did take a genius to find the percentages.
Look out for an update menu after break, new leagues and the Halo Tournament, March 24th from 6pm-1am. Teams of 4, with a choice of 4v4, CTF or Assault.
Keep it here for more updates Stars, and have a great break!
Got some great updates for you! We are continuing our wonderful new “How To” series with “How to Make Treats” Learn how to make puppy chow, ice cream and trail mix! Fun starts at 4:30pm and ends around 5:30pm on the 9th. Hopefully you’ll ignore your dentist and enjoy some delicious treats.
Thanks to those that came out for the Oscar party. It’s safe to say that no one dropped F-bombs through tears…or sang with a school choir, but someone did wear a dress.
After Spring Break, we are having our semester Halo Tournament, it will be 4v4, groups chose between CTF(Capture the Flag), Team Battle or Assault. Register by emailing your team name, and members to firstname.lastname@example.org, or write it on the Facebook event!
Now for a video of a honey badger:
Bored because the Super Bowl is over? Well, this Sunday won’t be filled with 300lb men battering each other over the head for a ball made of pigskin, but we have something just the same: The Oscars. For the party, you can expect Mocktails, red carpet treatment and probably crying actors, either in the Stars’ Lounge or on T.V. (Whom am I kidding? Probably both). So bring your friends, enjoy virgin drinks and be merry!
Not as good as the Super Bowl, but it'll do.
March 7thg is “How to Make your own Treats” with our own Cord Patrick, the wonderful man who built our Snack Stadium at the SUper Bowl. He’ll be handing out lessons about making treats, and being oh so sweet(corny, i know, but awesome)
With that we leave you with this video:
Just a quick update
We have Glee every Tuesday, starting at 7pm on our big screen. Come out and sing along(but not aloud )
The subtle undertones of sexuality is awesome
And here is our How To Series Overview.
Probably the most important information you need to know for college
We really hope you guys come out for it, because it is going to be ridiculous.
What do we have going on, you ask? Simply the greatest events in the history of college events.
Introducing… the “How To Series”
February 16th at 4:30pm, we started the epic journey of scrapbooking:
How to Scrapbook.
Next week we have another event: How to Chillax, our expert chillaxers will teach you the ways to de-stress and be Zen during your tenure here at UIS. Got any suggestions for How To events? Want to rant about how bad I write? Do you like Dinosaurs?
Hit us up at email@example.com, or write on our facebook page www.facebook.com/starslounge.
The Super Bowl party was awesome! Thanks for those that came out and enjoy the big screen( though it was in reverse )
Here’s a pic of the Snack Stadium.
Thanks to Cord Patrick for the greatest culinary creation the Stars’ Lounge has ever seen(though the pie was close).
Now, here are some pictures to make you feel bad for not showing up( I’m looking at you Jay Cutler).
If for some reason you couldn’t make it( We’ll assume something terrible or time consuming took over your life) we got an Oscar party in a couple of weeks. We’ll have ballots to fill out for who you think will win the biggest awards, and the person with the best record gets… a prize!( I know, you’re thinking to yourself “ How many prizes can they give away?” Answer: As many as we want!)
Now I am under the impression that some of you like football? Is that right? Well, good. Because Sunday is the going to be the greatest day of all time(barring the fact that your team is not in the game)! The Snack Stadium, Big Screen have been approved for the big game. As for door prizes? Oh-they’ll be there too.
Here are some League Promos:
Wii Bowling League
Ping Pong League
The Halo League and Card Game league promos will come up later. However with the Snow Storm, expect the leagues to start next week.
This is slightly out of there, but I thought that this talk from TED describes social media succinctly.
How the Internet enables intimacy
We’ll be open tomorrow! Come out, grab some hot cocoa and play on your day off.
Got an annoying brother or sister? Someone who wants to know how college is going? Do they ask if they can come up and go to a crazy wild party? Well now you can invite them to one! Siblings Weekend is coming up, with pizza parties, live acts and bowling, they’ll have a good time without a headache! Register by Friday, or your sibling will hate you.

Now it is only two weeks away consider the face that it’s the greatest sporting event in America every year, it’s important to be prepared. We just got the Big Screen and Snack Stadium ready to roll. Door prizes and an immense amount of pregame trivia for all to answer and get some great prizes.
We’re also hosting an Oscar viewing party. Show up black-tie or black sweats, doesn’t matter because we can have you feeling fancy with our mocktails and very fancy finger food.
If you have never experienced the magic that is a walking taco, you need to come and buy one at the Lounge. Combine savory taco meat, spicy nacho cheese, hot salsa and smooth sour cream over your favorite bag of chips all for 1.50
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can just drop all of those toppings on some nachos and walk away supreme
Then there are the mini-corn dogs. Perhaps you don’t have a huge appetite, this little snack is perfect.
