I also just saw the revamped Smith College website for the first time...

Alumnae worldwide will be able to hear Rachel Maddow, Smith’s 2010 Commencement speaker, via live Web stream on the Smith Website. The college will also simulcast the ceremony to John M. Greene Hall, rain or shine. The 132nd Commencement ceremony will take place at 10 a.m., Sunday, May 16. Maddow is scheduled to speak at 10:45 a.m.
I am seriously considering going to church at First Churches Northampton instead of Commencement. I mean, I can always read the speech online afterward, and I have about zero interest in the actual Commencement experience.

Reunion weekend? I am most excited about getting to see Stacey (whom I worked with at SCMA). Second-most excited about getting to see Gillian, et al (i.e., the people I met at Smith and am not in touch with as much as I might like). The official Smith part of the whole Reunion thing sort of makes me shrug (much as I loved my time at Smith).

I should email my English profs, but I feel Inferiority Complex. (Really I need to email Liz Carr.)

Peter Ives is retiring!
The Council of First Churches unanimously approved the appointment of Reverend Mark Seifried (pronounced “sigh”-”freed,”) to serve as Interim Minister of First Churches of Northampton following the retirement of Reverend Peter Ives on June 30, 2010. Reverend Seifried, who is known as Pastor Mark, will begin his duties on June 23 and will join Reverend Ives in the pulpit for Reverend Ive’s final worship service at First Churches on June 27, 2010.


Pastor Mark lives with his partner Dave and their two occasional-visiting adult sons in Worcester, where he is active in his neighborhood and city. He will be commuting to First Churches in his 2001, well-used Prius Hybrid that takes 3 gallons of gas for a round trip."
Oh, Northampton ... ♥

And because I've seen this story linked ~3 times today:
Lord Jesus Christ suffers minor injuries in downtown Northampton crosswalk mishap

NORTHAMPTON - A 20-year-old Pittsfield driver was cited by police Tuesday after she ran down Lord Jesus Christ in a marked crosswalk at Main Street and Strong Avenue, police said.


Savino said officers checked Christ’s identification at the scene and confirmed it was his legal name.
