SNDC Does It On Sunday Afternoons [Jul. 30th, 2007|09:42 pm]
Lindsey Kuper

Ever since SNDC stopped being on Sunday nights, we've been wondering what the name stands for. Today, it came to me.

SNDC is Not a Dinner Club.

And on the seventh day, SNDC created sndc. And it was good.

It is not for us to ask what SNDC is. SNDC simply is.

No. Then it would need to be at noon.

Dinner can be a midday meal. However, you're right.

If you're ever back in Portland on a Sunday, it would be fun to have you at SNDC.

Ah, you figured out a way to make it a recursive acronym after all.

Also, by defining this group in terms of what it is not, you've made it all mysterious and intriguing. Oooooo.

Now we are set.

I like that it's recursive and a geek reference, but none of that would be worth having if it weren't also true. It neatly captures the reason why we had to change it in the first place: it really was no longer dinner. On another level, too, we're making a statement about why we get together: it's not really about food, and it's definitely not about exclusivity. It's about friendship and tradition. And animal costumes.
