The most recent reunion with these ladies was in Paris on the first day of 2015, and I haven’t seen them since. Good ol’ Bordeaux connections!

The Iron Ring Ceremony is an important event for every Waterloo engineering student as that’s when they receive the Iron Ring that symbolizes 5 years of work, pain, and sweat. Before the ceremony, there’s a tradition where we got dress up in weird costumes to go around campus and terrorize/raid classes/offices and pretty much do whatever crazy things we wanted to. The class theme of our costumes was DUCT TAPE, as shown here by Albert as the Monopoly Man, Mike as Ab Lincoln, and May as…a plug. Here we were greeted by Jim Barby, a man that not many people would say they were fond of, but even he appeared quite personable and genuinely happy at that moment as we were rampaging through the corridors of the engineering offices. Oh, I was (more than) a bit tipsy from alcohol first thing in the morning…but I was still sober enough to know what was going on!

I had just finished the task of making a cheesecake for a friend’s birthday, witnessed by the sister, but she didn’t seem to be too interested in the cake. Instead, she was enjoying the strawberries and chocolate that were leftover ingredients. In hindsight, she must have known that the cake actually didn’t taste too good…but it was the effort that counts, right? 😀
