The Michigan Daily: Hi, I’m calling from The Michigan Daily and you’ve been selected to do this week’s Random Student Interview. Are you up for it?
TMD: OK, great. Hi, how it’s going? What’s your name?
TMD: OK, so you’re definitely up for doing this?
TMD: Do you even know what this is?
R: Yeah, I’ve seen it in the newspaper before. I know what it is.
TMD: Yeah, I’ll just ask you a few random questions. First question: How was your Welcome Week?
R: Welcome Week was awesome. I didn’t really participate though because I’m a junior, and I don’t think it’s that cool.
TMD: Right, right. Was it fun to watch the freshman just stumble around all lost?
R: Oh my gosh, it’s always hilarious, like they totally don’t know what they’re doing and they get all – I don’t want to say the s-word – they get like all crap-faced drunk, and it’s fun to watch.
TMD: Crap-faced drunk, yes. Now was there any drunken debauchery on your part?
R: No, not all. I have more fun just watching than actually participating. That’s how I am.
TMD: Have you ever had to give a fake name to get into a party?
R: Yes, I have. You know what, I tend to give out fake name and fake phone numbers a lot.
TMD: What’s your fake name?
R: My fake name is Denise. I use my middle name most of the time, or I’ll use my friend’s name like Maria or something more exotic.
TMD: So Maria is more exotic than Denise?
R: Hahaha, it’s more exotic than Denise, yes.
TMD: What about like Chandelier or something?
R: Haha, oh wow, I haven’t tried that one.
TMD: So do you use the fake name and the fake number to scare off guys?
R: Pretty much. Because I have a boyfriend and he can be pretty intimidating, so I have to use some device to keep the guys away.
TMD: All right. So what did you think about that Notre Dame game?
R: You know what? I actually didn’t see the Notre Dame game, I’m not much of a football fan. I’m trying to get into it – my boyfriend is helping me – but I don’t watch football to tell you the truth.
TMD: Do you think the football coach is going to get fired this week?
R: Oh my gosh, he should get fired. I mean – what happened? I heard some pretty bad stories about what happened
