Porch Profile: The Women of 324 Stonemill

By: Katy Hoeper – Staff Writer

FN: How did you guys meet?

Lexie Wiegel: Abby and I met at the first day at Honors Orientation.

Sammi Morakis: Elise and I met at the at the hotel, move-in weekend.

Libby Harbaugh: Well, Elise and I met online. First through Porches, and then Facebook. I liked her name, messaged her and the rest is history.

Elise McNall: Yeah, I ditched my other possible roomie for her.

SM: Beth and I lived together in Stuart, but I shacked every day at Marycrest with these losers. They had a sleeping bag and everything for me.

Abby Carr: Beth came later, actually. I didn’t even know her moving in junior year.

LH: But it all worked out wonderfully.


FN: If your house came with a warning label, what would it say?

LW: Caution: David May.

EM: No!

SM: How about, Caution: Everyone is naked. Wait, no. Caution: Abby is naked.

AC: Caution: Toilet is clogged. They are both sometimes clogged at the same time.

Beth Shields: Sorry …

SM: We have a bad sewage system here. I swear it’s not our fault …


FN: Care to share your most embarrassing moment at UD?

BS: When we flashed everyone in Daytona. Except that wasn’t embarrassing. It was awesome.

LW: Abby took an hour to get back from Tim’s one night because she couldn’t find her way home.

SM: Well, I peed my pants at Tim’s. And then stayed till close.

LH: I just don’t get embarrassed.

SM: Whenever Libby gets really drunk, she gets really embarrassed.

LH: That’s true. I get really bad post-drinking depression.

EM: Remember, Lexie, when you got really drunk in Daytona and told everyone that you hated them?

LH: The only thing that comes out of her mouth when she is drunk is, “Oh my god, I hate her.”

LW: Sammi remember when you “Pitch Perfect-ed” in the bathroom?

EM: I don’t even know where to start

SM: Oh, no, I’ve got one for Elise. She wanted to be her dead cat, Snowball freshman year. All year, she had told stories about her cat, Snowball, like he was still alive. But then one night, she got really drunk, told us that Snowball had actually died, and then proceeded to get on all fours and “be Snowball.”

EM: Her ashes are still at my house! Snowball McNall forever and always.


FN: Give everyone in your house a superlative.

FN: Who is your celebrity counterpart?

SM: Oh, Idina Menzel. “Let It Go.”

LW: I want to be a princess.

LH: Go with Cinderella, Lex, and rep her loud and proud.  If she could be all of the Disney princesses in one, she would.

SM: Elise will be living the J. Crew lifestyle.

SM: Libby will be speaking Spanish somewhere where they actually speak Spanish.

EM: Yeah, her mom will come instead of her.

SM: I never experienced The Pub, and I still wish that it was open.

BS: St. Paddy’s Day being on a weekend.

LW: Oh, that everyone gets free books now!

SM: Also, you used to be able to leave your trash cans out as long as you want and not get fined.

AC: I don’t like that they changed the name of the CPC.

EM: Wait they changed the name of the CPC?

LH: And I still don’t know how to pronounce the name of the soccer field.

LW: I don’t like the new hours of the library, honestly.

All: Classic Lexie.
