I’ve Been Lavaliered

“You’ve been what?”

That’s probably what you’re thinking. I didn’t know what it was myself until I joined my sorority.

A lavalier is a necklace in the bearing the letters of a fraternity or sorority.

They are a pretty big deal in the US Fraternity and Sorority system, but no one’s really caught on over in Canada so I’ve never really heard of anyone at my university getting one.

I may be the first.

My boyfriend, one of the president’s of a fraternity on campus, went away last week to the convention they had in Phoenix [same thing that I went to in Tampa] and learned about the Greek system out there himself. He came across a lavaliere and decided he would buy it for me. I really didn’t expect this from him considering he’s not really into the whole fraternity tradition thing. I was definitely surprised.

Bringing tradition to the UWO Greek Scene? Hmmm…

    Hi There ,
    Sometimes I do feel like I need to doublebag !! When visiting and sleeping at my relative's house I have the fear of a "blowout" . When Ii swim in a
    pool I sometimes picture the pool after my bag falls off in the water ( it NEVER has ) . In a restaurant I sometimes think I get a " funny " odor , turn
    slightly pale and reach for my " bicycle repair kit " only to find that someone has ordered smelly cheese from the menu . I have had to perform quick
    repairs in all these situations over the years but it is not the end of the world , S*** Happens and then you fix it . I was running to the security check at
    San Francisco Airport and I suddenly felt that warm wet feeling down my leg !! My backpack always has a change of clothes and my repair kit so I ran to the bathroom and fixed it in record time – I laugh about it now but is not funny at the time . A little paranoia can set in when traveling ALONE with my computer bag , camera bag and suitcase , you cannot just drop the bags in an airport . A TIP : Micropore Surgical Tape makes for a great security blanket , stays on in water like a second skin . Email me if you want to chat or give a tip , I'm single , live in Ireland / San Francisco 1/2 N 1/2 . Eamon.
