*hugs* Woot 1998 Orientation! It's funny that you posted this an hour after I randomly noticed NBC using 'In Your Eyes' as the theme for a Phelps clipshow. Has it really been 10 years, though?

Heh. I noticed that, too! Is that still the calibration song I wonder?

I have to say, the fact that the class of 2002 is at a decade from orientation makes me realize that it has been longer than that for me. Weird... when did that ll happen

you don't happen to have that mp3 of that song:

Tuesday, August 18, 1998.
That was the day of our lives, we learned we'd made a mistake.
We went up to that door and they gave us a key.
Not one of those nice little metal ones,
It was plastic-key

'Cause were livin' in the Hampton Inn
'Bout 20 minutes away...


Oh yeah.. The title was Livin' in the Hampton Inn. Took long enough to remember eh?

I _totally_ forgot about that song. That said, I do in fact have a copy. Yay digital packrat.

It is posted at www.andrew.cmu.edu/~(my cmu userid)/hampton-inn-song.zip (which contains the mp3). Sadly, apparently contrib is lame and doesn't work any more (or at least not right now). So, this is in fact the first time I've ever "published" my www.andrew pages. Heh!
