Last Wednesday, Fairkids gathered together to draw a massive Valentine card for Harkness, our soulmate/lovers/Coöpers With Benefits??? across the AJLC pond.

At the stroke of midnight we then dashed across Harkness bowl dressed all in black to tape it to the railing in their main entryway, and then returned, cackling (lovingly) into the night.

By lunchtime we had received a response card/banner that now hangs on the cupboards by the tasty things table. General feelings were very positive, and all of our hearts grew 3 sizes that day.

This comes from the days of yore when co-op tee shirts used to be a big thing (ie 1989.) Apparently our old grungy couch was old and grungy 20 years ago too, and Harkness was still into tofu (although to fight the myth of presentism, I think I should point out that OSCA in-house tofu hasn’t operated continuously from 1989 to the present—according to our Winter Term president, Zo, it disappeared for a while and was revitalized in the last few years by Ike, a former Operations Manager and all-around OSCAn extraordinaire.)

Many thanks to the alum and intrepid current Fairkid who sent the pictures of the tee shirts our way!

The (Official?) Fairkid Blog: that moment when you realize that you spent your entire childhood preparing to be OSCA winter term foodbuyer

It is literally exactly the same. I look up the prices of the staples and then figure out how fast people in my group will go through the food, and then go look for fresh vegetables and treats. A surprising amount of the food I’m buying for OSCA is food I bought for my party in Independence…

We trust in you to get your wagon train to the Pacific Ocean!
