Californians Are Wusses
At Columbia, which is in New York, where it gets cold, they have Naked Run. In October. At UCLA (and maybe, one day, at USC), where the weather is gorgeous, they have (or, apparently, had) Undie Run.
I'm not exactly one to run around naked or in my underwear, but I am just saying New Yorkers are way tougher than Californians.
On a semi-related note, a friend recently told me: "Listen, honey. Just because you leave, you can't drop who you are. You are a NY born and bred and will be til the day you die no matter where you move to or for how long. OK?" Duly noted and totally true. I'm way tougher than these Californians.
