I had to travel to Vermillion, Ohio to finally find a canopus.
Vermillion is relentlessly, oppressively cute - the Sunday evening brass band and barber shop quartet on the village square prompted me to youtube episodes of The Prisoner.
We also drove through Oberlin the campus and Oberlin the town yesterday to get our bearings for today, when Planet interviews then we take the course tour and attend the info session. Since the most recent comparison is Earlham the campus and Richmond the town, DING! DING! DING! If Earlham wasn't already off the list (it was), it is so off the list now as to never have been on the list at all.
Then off to Kenyon, which Planet says she has no intention of applying for even if her favorite uncle went for a year before dropping out to move in with Robin Notficker; chances are he would not be her favorite uncle if he hadn't. We made the interview appointment before Planet learned that one of her bestfriends has Kenyon at the top of her list. I like Planet.
