First Name C
- Davidson '05
Calla was in charge of a male RCGroup on the 4th floor of Belk. During Term I, the hall was decorated with a world theme with news posted each day. Calla had a relatively loose method of mantaining control within her RCGroup, although stepped in when it mattered. When being too strict, her group was asked to call her "Ms. Wilson" to remind her to Her Term I group consisted of: -Ethan (The member who never stayed with the group) -Jeremy/Jerry (The introvert who was roomates with Ethan) -Jeff (The one with all the board games) -Rahil (Roomate with Jeff and owner of the largest room) -Max (Rejected member of the group) -Corey (Roomate of Max and usually laughing) -Rohan (Voted most likely to own Vegas due to his poker skill) -Matt (Steve's roomate who never danced, along with several other members of the group) -Steve (Owner of the only sound system and most of the music) -Sean (Roomate of Rohan and the shortest member of the group, yet determined to play in the NBA) -Chris (Owner of Bob, the squishball, and country music enthusiest) -Jordan (Chris's roomate who claimed to have been intoxicated by a mixture of Axe and peach spray) -Noah (Arguably the most social of the group) -Kevin (Foreign exchange student who was roomates with Noah)
Two of the major highligts of Term I were Hobo Day and Old Bertha. Other themes of the 3 weeks were the frequent dissapearance of Bob and the Country music, along with the mysterious eyehole robbery.
On another note, there is a whited out word on the termpage along the left side. The missing word is "Brown". It was removed in publishing due to the jokingly racist nature of the remark.
All in all, everyone in Calla's RCGroup left with a positive experience, except for Max. Many feel sorry for what happened to him, some do not, insiting that it was his fault.
First Name D
Dissatisfied: a TIPster at Kansas in 2004 who wished not to wear a shoelace, and also wished not to meet the fate of Thomas the Martyr. Can be identified by the ability to tie a noose out of a shoelace and a shared hatred for a breakdancer named Novotny.
First Name X
Xiao, with his rampant cursing, his pseudo-monotonous nasal voice, and a dozen or so third-year boys in his charge, was somewhat of a demigod on campus during Term 1 2006. He was so revered that TIPsters - albeit mostly Xiao's own RAG - were always vying to "Ask Xiao a question" (this actually became a mandatory fun activity and was subsequently banned)
Xiao's RAG was pretty much a cult, complete with a figure-X sign produced when the boys (a.k.a. Xiaoists) crossed their forearms above their heads. They invariably made dinnertime a spectacle, giving toasts to whatever people/places/things/ideas/entities were on their minds (this often earned them The Look from Sam the OSC and other staff members, but to my knowledge Xiao's RAG was never specifically disciplined - for this or for any other activity). In fact, Xiao was not even disciplined for deserting his blackjack table at Casino Day. Xiao threw up his cards in anguish, and told some random kid named Duke to deal the table.
- Catch phrases
One thing that set apart Xiao's rag from the other inferior rags was the fact that he had many catch phrases such as "Eyes on the prize" and "Gotta have heart." But the best catch phrase made up by his rag members was " Xiao equals God."
Xiao: "Okay, you girls might want to leave now, or put on earmuffs."
Xiao: "Trust me. I don't think you want to hear this."
Xiaoist #1: "No, really. You don't want to hear this."
Us: "Sure we do. It can't be that bad."
Xiaoist #2: "Seriously, you girls will probably not like this."
Us: "Psh. We're staying."
Xiao: "Fine, whatever. Okay. My guys, listen up. ...Shut up, Malcolm. Shut the fuck up, Malcolm! ...Anyway, so, we have a little problem here on our hall that we need to talk about. It starts with an 'm' and it ends with an 'asturbation'...."
(Apparently, Xiao had walked in on some kid jacking off(or some kid walked in on Xiao), and this meeting was called in order to implement a new "knock knock *cough*" policy to avoid such situations.)
Me: Why don't you just do it at night when you're roommate's asleep?
Though Xiao and his cult might have been a nuisance to some (perhaps the kid who Xiao reportedly called an "asshole"), and though certain religious-minded people might have found it offensive that he was dubbed "God" at some point... Xiao's RAG is exemplary in that they were more unified than most RAGs ever have been or will be in the history of TIP. They were beautiful to watch.
- Superrage involvement
One key bit about Xiao is that he never was, nor was ever invited to be, a member of the 2006 Term 2 Superrag. He was, in fact, Superrag's Public Enemy #1, and was thwarted by Superrag on many occassions.
- Carrie's Rag
Xiao would often come downstairs at night to Carrie's RAG and tell them all about his love life in a very detailed manner. He described all the girls who would "rip out his heart and piss in his soul."
- Fun Fact: Term 2 of 2006 Xiao was bitten by Callista for threatening to throw her in a trash can
Also!! Xiao was the official "RAG Pet" of Kavita's RAG Term 2 of 2006.
