An e-mail I received yesterday from my alma mater:
The University of San Francisco
North Bay Regional Council invites
You and your guest(s) to a
with heavy hors d’oeuvres
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
6pm to 8pm
Nicholson Ranch Winery
4200 Napa Road, Sonoma, CA
** What I can't depict is the format of this e-mail. The words "Wine Tasting" are easily ten times larger than any other words. They are big and bold, front and center. Beneath that, "with heavy d'oeuvres" demands notice, as it too remains substantially larger than the remainder of the text.
My response: oh good. Someone from USF called me during finals week asking for a donation. I haven't heard anything since, except for this gem of an e-mail. My Jesuit University. Inviting me to drink wine and eat "heavy" appetizers with a bunch of old guys. Oh, the Jesuits. Educating minds and hearts to change the world! Cheers to that.
