Surprised Patrick: Georgetown Edition

Surprised Patrick is, obviously, surprised at a lot of things. When he was brought to the Georgetown campus, chaos ensued. We were able to take a few pictures of him but then we lost track of him and can’t figure out where he went!

It’s up to you to tell us where on campus he is. Make your own Surprised Patrick photo and send it to us at BlogContests@TheHoya.com. It might just make it up on 4E.

Surprised Patrick was surprised by the missing clock hands.

Happy Sunday, Hoyas! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and we know exactly what you’re doing: nothing. You just woke up, you’re nursing a whammy of a hangover and you’re pretending that the mounds of work you have to do for tomorrow don’t exist. You’re probably in denial, surfing all over the Internet and looking at adorable/weird memes and GIFs.

It’s fine — we totally understand. In fact, we’re here to help. Welcome to The Procrastinator’s Guide to the Galaxy, our newest weekly profile of some of the most addictingly strange websites on the inter-web. Every Sunday, check here for the wackiest, tackiest and juiciest sites in the galaxy. You’re welcome.

Have you ever walked into Starbucks, tired and caffeine deprived, and the only thing you wanted wanted was to have a delicious Grande Mocha to get you through your morning? And when you received said Grande Mocha from the hipster barista named Iver, you realized that your very simple name was awkwardly spelled incorrectly on the cup? We know. It happens all the time. This week’s Procrastinator site, Starbucks Spelling, highlights all of the awkward spelling errors from the “inventors of the Frappuccino.” So sit back, relax, keep procrastinating and check out all the messed-up name attempts of Starbucks Spelling.

A Look Into Hillary’s BlackBerry

Hey girl…Ever wondered what our Madam Secretary of State has been texting? The latest meme to pop up on everyone’s Facebook newsfeeds and Tumblr dashboards features the one and only Hillary Clinton.

The original photo by Diana Walker for Time magazine was for the cover story “Hillary and the Rise of Smart Power” back in November of last year. The photo was taken aboard a C-17 flight in Malta as Hillary took one last peek at her Blackberry before taking off for Tripoli.

Texts from Hillary, founded by Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith about a month ago, has made its way about the web. In fact, it has even come up on Hillary’s staff’s radar. And what does our beloved Hillary think about the site? Well, Hillz loved it.

She loved it so much that she sent in her own meme and made a personal appearance to meet with the co-founders. Word on the street is she’s embracing this new “inconspicuous as a tarantula on a slice of angel food” look and has definitely taken a different approach to technology since her 2008 bid for president. Does this mean she’s back–harder, better, faster, stronger? Will we be seeing “Hillary for President” signs again in 2016? Hopefully!

One more word on these memes. I’m curious as to what she thought of Bill being in contact with Mon again. On another note, I’m having trouble choosing between her text to John Boehner or her response to Condoleeza Rice as my favorite one. Which one is yours?
