Commoners and barista snobs alike were wowed this afternoon by a surprise visit from Lady Gutmann. You treat yourself, Madame President! Can you even imagine the headache of having to welcome 2,465 fresh sacks of $56,000 meat to Penn? And she pulls it off so gracefully, too! Just look at all that sweet and delicate…
A recent Times Style feature details the– what else?– stylistic and political choices of Jeremy Bernard, the Obama administration’s social planner, as he sets up the White House’s upcoming state dinner. Who’s among those 806 invitees? Oh, is it you, Amy? It is! Except Any Gutmann? Eh, silly typo. We’ll let it slide this time.
Take us as your date, Any! We make great conversation about blogs, Penn, cats and the Interwebs. Or if you don’t want us to talk and just sit there and look pretty, we’re really good at that too.
Prez Amy Gutmann made an appearance in Penn Park yesterday showing a family around campus. Maybe her tour guide skills will land us a naming gift for the new dorms on Hill Field? Maybe the Med School will be re-re-endowed? Maybe Amy simply likes to give personal tours on Saturday afternoons? (Maybe?) Or maybe…we’re just disappointed Amy never gave us a personal tour of Penn.
When Amy Gutmann heard our friends over at The Buzz were hosting a March Madness competition for all of Penn — with the grand prize of a $100 gift certificate to Smokes — she couldn’t wait to fill out her bracket.
So what if her Quakers didn’t make it to the Big Dance this year. That didn’t stop her from picking Princeton to LOSE in the first round. Okay, no major upset there, but you gotta respect Amy’s solidarity.
Think you can do better than the president? Sign up and fill out your bracket now at thedp.com/marchmadness. Brackets close tomorrow when the tournament starts. If you beat Amy — and the rest of Penn — that sweet, sweet beer money is all yours!
Amy’s days of hanging out with Arianna Huffington have obviously paid off. Daily Beast just named Gutmann one of the “150 Women Who Shake the World.” Amy is commended for her efforts in raising more than $3 billion for Penn and for her stint as chairwoman of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. Between hosting swank lunches, jet setting around the world to keep up with the social scene, and maintaining perfect hair, we just don’t know how she does it all!
A-Gut is in great company. Besides sharing the title with such big wigs as Michelle Obama and Oprah, Amy also enjoys the honor with several other Penn affiliates. Judith Rodin, the first woman president in the Ivy League, Penn alum Tory Burch, and Jennifer Buffett, daughter-in-law to Warren Buffett, also made the list.
Before she graduated, a wise Penn woman once told us quite possibly the most inspiring words ever. She said the most important thing we could do before graduation is to drink as often as possible on Penn’s dime. Seniors, one such opportunity is here tomorrow.
Free food and booze with Amy Gutmann (trust us she’s great to drink with) before the basketball game, to which you also get free tickets. Good job, S4TPF: it seems like you maybe didn’t annoy anyone with this event!
Also, we may or may not livedrunktweet this tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Yo Amy! We caught you! That’s right, you’ve been exposed, and now the world knows that you’re hobnobbing around the World Economic Forum in Davos with the Most Important People In The World. Blame your pal Arianna Huffington for blowing your cover – she tweeted the above photo of you guys with Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw around 10:30 AM eastern time. We think this all-star lineup has the makings of wild girls night out – Davos 2K11, no boundaries! Haha, just kidding. You guys have fun fixing stuff or whatever it is that people do at these summits.
