The Craw,The Claw, Crawdeen, Crawdat, C-Dog. I am called many names in this strange land, including 'Jessica'. I'm a third year ALT from South Africa, but I've only re-contracted so I can add radioactive super powers to my skills set of polygamy, racism and ninja rap (as well as an intermediary level of South African Cliches Generation). I appreciate days when I don't have to set my alarm, well maintained facial hair and tequila.
May the Awesomeness be with us for the 2011/2012 JET year! Or, at least, until one of the End of the World prophecies comes true. And, no, this will not entitle you to a refund on your membership fees.
Vice President: Brian Garvey
My name is Brian. My blood type is internet. I enjoy grain alcohol, mealtimes that are epic and singing enka (see: “grain alcohol”). Let’s be friends.
Treasurer: Marissa Godwin
Marissa is from Ottawa, born and raised
On the playground was where she spent most of her days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of school
When a couple of guys
Who were up to no good
Startin making trouble in her neighborhood
She got in one little fight and her mom was shinpai
She said 'You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Sendai.
We look forward to serving you this year!*
*A 20% gratuity will be added for groups over 8 people.
We're goin' Hanami-in' Saturday April 23rd! (more in events section)
