Alright, I know I said it's a big world, but don't believe me.So it's "diversity" week at FIT and they're hosting a bunch of guest speakers and expos and stuff like that. Tonight I went to one tonight about how Abercrombie & Fitch has turned around and become a lot more diverse company yada, yada, yada. So a guy asks about how a&f got a bad rap, and the A&F lady responds by saying "Well the lack of diversity wasn't intentional, it was kind of a 'bad apple' situation. I've worked for the company for over 11 years, and I'm from Nebraska (my ears perk up) so when we would recruit at the University of Nebraska which is a majority of white students , it never really occured to us that there was a problem." Yeah... she's from NEBRASKA.
So I go up to her after the presentation just to see if she lives there or here and just to say Hi, it's not everyday you meet someone else from NE in NY, but turns out shes from Lincoln but she lives in NYC now, she knows what "Papio" is, and she also just so happens to run the Facebook page for "The Nebraska Society of New York"... yeah that's a real thing. So she told me to go like the page on Facebook and go to the Irish Rogue on saturday, which is the official Nebraska bar in New York. I already knew about the bar and the society because two weeks ago when my parents were here, my dad went to the Irish Rogue and just had himself a gay'ole time. So, I get back to my dorm and go to like their page on facebook, and they posted pictures from the weekend that my dad was here..and what do I see? George's shiny bald head goin in for a high-five. Put a smile right on my face. I Love Nebraska. I love daymakers.
|need one of these. asap|
OH! and I also found out that the Irish Rogue holds a "Taste of Nebraska" in the spring with Runzas, Valentinos, Dorthy Lynch, and Kool-Aid. I'm so there.
