The History Students’ Association Listserv for 19 April (Season Finale)

HSA listserv banner
Your home, once the holiest of all, has become the most licentious den of thieves, the most shameless of all brothels, the kingdom of sin, death, and hell. It is so bad that even Antichrist himself, if he should come, could think of nothing to add to its wickedness.

According to English theologian John Bale, Pope Sixtus IV “gave authorization to practice sodomy during periods of warm weather.” #funinthesun


The Preamble
Good morning everyone,

This is the 30th and last listserv of the year; I’m going to miss you guys more than the Empress Maria Theresa missed Silesia (a lot). First, I want to thank every single one of you that has come to our events this year, written a strongly worded e-mail lambasting me for referring to celebrated Canadian drunk The Right Honourable Sir John A. Macdonald as a drunk, or simply loitered in our office while waiting to see Dr. Fitzpatrick’s. Your delightfully weird thesis topics, fanboy/girling over our amazing professors, and liberal drinking habits made the HSA the most beautiful statelet operating within the horrifyingly large Holy Departmental Empire this year.
Second, I want to thank the professors for being such great sports this year, as they enthusiastically read ancient explicit erotica, recited medieval ghost stories, and talked about their own personal histories during our round table series. The only piece of advice that this hot mess of a student will bestow upon you guys: don’t be scared, and get to know the profs teaching you. Not only are they real humans, they are also the sweetest people you will ever meet (and will generally support the presence of liquid courage at any academic event).
Lastly, to those graduating – good luck with all future endeavors, and keep in touch: if a friendship can survive a two month period of nodding off at your other half’s thesis research on a bunch of stupid ocean liners, it’s a keeper. To those still at McGill: keep your head high (to watch for failing infrastructure), don’t go to Korova, and please, please, please remember that history a ridiculous dramedy on its 4000th season – have a bit of fun.
See you all at OAP, here’s what’s happening this week.
The Main Events
Domino’s Pizza For The Weary Soul
20 April, Leacock 629 (12pm-3pm)

We have extra money in our budget this year, so we are spreading the wealth by ordering 10 boxes of Dominos Pizza for any history student seeking comfort from food, human company, and shared suffering. We will hopefully be on the 6th Floor Leacock Lounge (if not the the office – 629), so feel free to come anytime after your exam or paper to complain, do work, or talk about the latest episode of RuPauls Drag Race (please!).
