The new semester is upon us and we’re gearing up for a whole new wave of undergrad babies to invade campus. Nothing like frosh week to make ya feel old, right?

We recently set out on a mission to clean up CKUT.
A rare and momentous occasion that happens every 20 years or so, give or take a few decades. Among the many things we found in storage (crates of stale beer, what was either a hidden dungeon or perhaps just storage space, and cobwebby hints suggesting the existence of possibly giant spiders
) we found some pots and other kitchen supplies that belonged to Midnight Kitchen
. I took it upon myself to return these items to their rightful owners.
I set out on an epic adventure filled with harsh and unfamiliar terrain (a flight of stairs + the Mcgill Campus), wizards and dragons (check my t-shirt above) and hordes gathered from near and far, drawn to the fabled McGill Frosh week festival.
All in all it was quite a successful journey, I destroyed the one ring brought some kitchen utensils back to their proper owners, and I cleared a bit of space for ckut with nary a scratch aside from sore shoulders from the heavy utensils.
