As we let you know by tweet a few hours ago, Vox was having troubles with the intertubes. Both the break and our technical difficulties are over, however, and Vox will be posting on a regular schedule for the rest of this week and for the rest of the semester till spring break.
Good luck on the first day of classes. Be shrewd and trust your instincts; you have to live with your picks for the rest of the semester.
Don’t worry guys, we’re not dead (yet). But we’ll be trying to pick up the pieces of our GPA’s over the next few days. As such, we’ll be scaling back our coverage over the next few days. If anything happens, though, you know we’ll have you covered. Thanks for a great first couple of weeks!
Starting in two weeks, VFT will post bi-monthly advice columns about sex, dating, and anything else that’s inappropriate for polite conversations. But, there’s a catch—she needs your questions.
Here’s our request to you all: Dig down into your sexual psyche, then email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Anything related to relationships is fair game. (And we guarantee anonymity, so feel free to use pen names at your leisure.)
Let’s see what you’ve got, Georgetown. Venus Fly Trap is waiting.
I’ll be in New Jersey next week, presumably doing all of those things that I see on MTV nowadays. But all of those gym workouts, tanning, and laundry, I won’t have much time to keep you updated on Georgetown’s mosthard-hittingnews.
I’ll check in from time to time to make sure you’re playing nice in the comments, but don’t expect to see too many posts around these parts while I’m gone. (Although, I promise to jump into action should another golf cart set on fire.)
We fell sleep for a few hours and—BAM!—our 10,000th comment contest ended overnight. As promised, the winner will receive his very own Georgetown Barbie.
Our first five-figure comment, written by Jeffrey Bien (COL ’10), a.k.a. “Bring Back the Blingees!”, shows in oh-so-many ways why we love Vox commenters:
Seriously, can we make blingees? I’m envisioning a giant Bieber head saying “GET OUT OF MY GHETTO”
What do you think?
While we secretly hoped a resident would win, Jeffrey’s comment delighted us. Congrats, the Georgetown Barbie is forever yours.
At the risk of repeating ourselves, we want to thank everybody that reads Vox. Your tips, comments, and feedback keep this little blog going. Our job would be decidedly less fun—and more pointless—without you.
And while we’re elbow-deep in self-promotion, we just want to remind you to try submitting a slogan to our 2010 Campus Plan sign contest. We promise there’s no better way to waste away your precious summer hours.

In case you forgot, Vox plans to celebrate our impending 10,000 comment with a prize for one lucky reader.
And for the sake of fairness, we wanted to let you know that Vox‘s 9,950th comment was posted earlier today. We won’t tell you which comment was 9,950—because what’s the fun in that?—but we have a hunch that we’ll hit the 10,000 mark real soon. So, if you’re in the market for a Georgetown Barbie, it’s best to comment early and often.
Thanks again for reading Vox this summer. We love you all.
We have a confession to make: our blogroll is woefully outdated and incomplete. So, that’s where you can help!
Do you blog? Are you at all related to Georgetown University? If so, fill out the form below and we’ll be happy to add you to our soon-to-be updated blog roll.
Georgetown has a short, but spectacular history of well-run student blogs, so we know there’s plenty out there just waiting to be discovered. So have at it—you may just be the next VFT, College Prepster, or @KingGeorgetown.
