Get your Red Bull ready: It's time to stay up way past your bedtime. Sure, you could be pulling an all-nighter at the library, but now it's time to party. Spring brings the best bashes, and your only excuse for going to bed early is if someone's in there with you. So wriggle into your favorite jeans and grab your fake I.D.: It's time to boldly go where the Recess crew has gone many, many times before - all along the Duke party scene. So check your closets, your liquor cabinets and your friends' away messages - here's the run-down of where to see the sunrise every Saturday:
It's the weekend and we are pissed off.
He calls me at 7.
My favorite dates are always with my partner in crime. We're not going out or anything, but our senses of humor match up like jeans and a good pair of Pumas. My partner in crime rarely comes to dinner with me. He hardly knows my friends. He barely knows my phone number. In fact, the only thing this guy really knows is what makes me laugh--fortunately, that's usually the only thing that matters.
Senior Editor Faran Krentcil spent last weekend hobnobbing with the stars at the prestigious Hamptons Film Festival. Not there merely to look good, she played a leading role in Alma Mater, one of the festival's featured films. Here's a day-by-day journal of her experiences:
Some movies are better on video. You can talk over them, pause them to study cute outfits, rewind the good parts over and over and fast-forward the waste-of-my-life, totally predictable ending.
I used to think that trends touched only shoesï¿½ï¿½stilettos for fall, Puma sneakers for winter and wooden wedge heels for spring. But now it seems the waves of fashion have washed up way past footwear--they've spilled into our love lives. With fall hosting a campus hook-up session, winter showing a settle-down season and May as the make-it-or-break it month, Duke's dating habits are as easy to spot as fashion fads. We already know the new Anne Taintor address books are hot. Now we need to know: Whose digits should we be scribbling into them?
Last year, Duke drama professor Jan Chambers had a dream: She saw three women stranded on a disc in the middle of the sea. One year later, and with the help of a visionary theater company, a Jungian analyst and an international cast, the dream has become a reality.
At this point, it's almost cliché to sing the praises of The Sopranos. What can be said about the amazing, exciting show that hasn't been penned before by every major entertainment mag in the country? And while it would be fun to list our complaints, the truth is, we haven't got any. The season premiere of The Sopranos was fun, scary, sad and completely captivating. The Recess crew can't wait for episode number two, and we bet you at home feel the same way. That's why we've come up with the choose-your-own-Sopranos game. Select the fate of each character, stir in some homemade pasta sauce from Jersey, and bada-bing! Waiting for Sunday just got a little bit easier.
We're sitting on his couch and I can't stop staring. His cheekbones lie inches from my hands, and I want to touch them. It would be so easy, I think, to pull him on top of me. Easy, but out of the question. After all, I'm just a girl, and as I've been taught, girls don't make the first move.
It's the first week of classes, and already my friends are scoping. We're not looking for the best history course or even that coveted sale at Uniquities. Instead, these five days are a different kind of shopping period--the fall feeding frenzy.
Jennifer Aniston couldn't have done it alone. Sure, Mrs. Pitt's performance in The Good Girl won rave reviews, a Sundance standing ovation and the cover of August Vogue. But could the girl have been so good without a little help? I doubt it. That's why it's imperative to recognize the film's excellent supporting cast full of potential breakout stars.
Memo to fashion-forward freshmen: Fear not.
Recently, TV networks of all sizes have been giving it the old college try.
Memo to fashion-forward freshmen: Fear not.
This is all a big mistake.
You know you're in trouble when you can't even shop. There were two pairs of Earls, topstitched and top-notch and even on sale. But I just couldn't do it. "Clothes are futile," I thought. "I mean, there's a war going on. Why do I need more jeans?"

When Harry Met Sally, we were just little kids. Meg Ryan took a backseat to "My Little Pony," and the essential question of men and women being friends really didn't matter. Guys had cooties. Girls were gross. End of story.
