Who says students don’t have embarrassing stories to tell? In fact, there are more out there than one would think. Four students opened up about their sex lives.

“Me and a girl go out to a movie – me and my lady. Things are going really well and we start making out in the car. So we go and drive to a parking lot, turn off the car and hop in the backseat. So, things are really getting hot and heavy. And then…. ‘ouch.’ I ask her what’s wrong. She says ‘I don’t know, I must have sat on something.’ I looked behind her, and its my little sister’s booster seat. It kind of killed the mood.”

-Brett, freshman

” I was out on a date with this girl, and we were getting ice cream. After we get done, she goes ‘I still feel like I could go for some more dessert.’ So I get all excited, and ask where she wants to go. ‘I think we can go back to your house’, she says, so we go back and on the way, all she can talk about is ‘licking on an ice cream cone.’ We get back to my house, and we run in, and I ask where she wants to do this. She says the kitchen. So I go into my bedroom and strip down, come to the kitchen, and she is eating ice cream. Blue like ice.”

-Scott, sophomore

“I was fooling around with this guy and not only did my period start in the middle of it but his mom came home. He went outside and his mom was like, ‘what are you doing?’ And he looks at her with a big grin and says I’m showing her my room. I walked downstairs to meet her and there was glitter from my thong on his face.”

-Kelsey, freshman

“His roommate came home while I was getting dressed. Walked outside his door and my RA and three of my guy friends were waiting for me as soon as I walked out. Oh, also the door was left open while we were in the act.”

-Brittney, junior

Cooking with bacon

Bacon, or its non-meat substitute for our vegan, vegetarian and non-pork loving friends, is a salty, sometimes crispy, treat craved by all bacon-lovers. It is incredibly versatile in the kitchen and can be added to almost any dish. From appetizer to dessert, here are a few dishes featuring bacon.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Dates 4of4

Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Dates

Bacon-wrapped Dates
Ingredients
1 16-ounce package of bacon cut into thirds
1 8-ounce package of pitted dates
1 small brick of bleu cheese (or goat cheese)
1 bottle of balsamic vinaigrette
1 package toothpicks

A date is a soft, sweet fruit that grows on some species of palm trees, and they go wonderfully with bacon and cheese. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. For the dates to cook evenly, place the rack in the center of the oven. Take your dates and stuff them (where the pit used to be) with cheese, then wrap a piece of bacon around the stuffed date and secure it with a toothpick. For easy cleanup, cover a cookie sheet with tinfoil before placing the the wrapped dates on the cookie sheet; position them far enough apart so they will not touch. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy, then remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes. Place the dates on a plate and sprinkle cheese around them, then drizzle lightly with balsamic vinaigrette.

Bacon Shish Kabobs
Ingredients
1 package of bamboo skewers
3 6-ounce chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 package mushrooms
1 zucchini, sliced into ½ inch wide pieces
1 red bell pepper, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 green bell pepper, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 onion, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1 package of bacon cut in half
Note: Any vegetables can be used for this recipe.

First, start soaking the skewers in water. They need to soak for about 30 minutes so they don’t catch fire on the grill. While they are soaking, cut up the veggies and meat. Once cut, slide each piece onto a skewer, alternating between veggies and meat. Try wrapping some of the veggies in bacon; make sure to skewer both sides of the bacon so it stays on. Leave an inch or two at either end of the skewers to allow for easy handling. Also, leave space between each item so they cook evenly. Grill the kabobs on a barbeque grill until the chicken and bacon are fully cooked. Allow time to cool, and enjoy.

Candying the bacon

Candying the bacon

Candied Bacon Ice Cream (not for the feint of heart)
Ingredients:
8 strips thin cut bacon, preferably hickory smoked
1 package golden brown sugar
1 carton vanilla ice cream

We are going to bake the bacon first, so preheat your oven to  350° Fahrenheit with the rack in the middle. Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil. Lay the bacon on a cookie cooling rack and place it on the cookie sheet. Cover each slice of bacon with an even layer of brown sugar, thick enough so that you cannot see the bacon underneath. Bake for about ten minutes until the sugar is caramelized and the bacon is almost crispy. Flip the bacon over and coat the other side with brown sugar as well. Bake for another 4-6 minutes until the bacon is fully cooked. Let the bacon cool for 10-15 minutes to let the sugar harden. Then, cut or crumble the bacon into small pieces and sprinkle over vanilla ice cream with some more brown sugar. Enjoy!
