Some big shot business man spoke at my convocation, but the next day William Shatner spoke at the arts convocation.

My mother had Gary Larson (Far Side) for her graduation from grad school. He was pretty awesome.

Heh- excellent.

Larson's a WSU grad, which is where Mom got her masters as well.

Chevy Chase, he was obviously ****ed up. It was funny for a while, then just awkward.

Oprah spoke at mine. Anderson Cooper spoke at my sister's. Oprah was terrible. Anderson Cooper was legit.

I had Jeffrey Immault, CEO of GE. Don't remember a single thing from it. My sister had Ken Burns, might be the WOAT commencement speaker, it was a half hour of Lincoln that wasn't tied in to graduation at all.

The minister who ended up being the preacher for the day of mourning thing the Friday after 9/11 was the main guy at mine. The next year it was Bill Clinton, who was by all accounts awesome.

Yes and no. Since he was still potus at the time, it was an enormous pita for all involved - I didn't go despite living 30 minutes away and a guy who was a good enough friend that he performed my wedding ceremony graduating.

I had some random dude who I'd never heard of and don't remember a damn thing he said. At least my wife got Dick Enberg for her speaker.

I had Obama speak at my graduation.

The speech and the buzz around the event: cool.

Having to get to the stadium at 8AM morning after our senior bar crawl for a noon start time, not so much.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, MegaElite Crapsblog, and Forum Discussion

So how weird should I feel about this situation? Hanging out at the bar last night, everybody in our group of friends in Halloween costumes. Pretty much our whole group is like 21-25, mostly my roommate and his work friends, but a few people not from his work.

Another guy from their work comes out with about a month ago, starts hooking up/dating one of the girls from our group of friends. He's like 31. Last night at the bar, we're all just hanging out and talking, they're both up at the bar facing away from the bar. I'm at the bar getting a drink and start talking to the two of them. During our conversation, dude reaches down under the front of her skirt, not really hidden by anything, and just starts going to town on her basically.

I grab my drink and excuse myself from the situation, but it just got me to thinking, who the **** does this, especially somebody who's in their damn 30s?
