S: To Adam, Love Kaitlyn
FC: Adam Mercer's Memories from Madtown 2011
1: Love you Adam
7: "Yo Bro Bro, Thanks for paving the way at wisconsin. Kaitlyn and I have already found a nice little place to live next year, so it will be like you never left. In all seriousness though, I'm so glad I got to visit you out there over the past few years. Hopefully I can join you and Nick in Europe soon enough and make some more memories." -Joe
9: "Bigger risk, bigger gain bro. Honored to share this next chapter with you." -Nick
11: "So... I guess I'd like to say that I'm incredibly happy that you ended up at UW and that you will always have that close connection to Madison. It wasn't always easy for you but you stuck it out. Hopefully you have paved the way for your little bro. Well done Adam and oh ya, go Badgers"! -Mom
12: "Adam- you were the first boy from piedmont to take me to the movies, on my birthday no less, and i'll never forget it. You, Pete, Drew and I have had lotta great times together, I know you'll be back to visit soon. Have a great time in Spain...(again) : ) " -Beth | "Spilled Slurpees --> EDC" -Pete
13: "Don't forget that Guns N Roses suck, and to always 'walk' the trigger. Do big things, Large Merc." -Sam
14: "Dear Adam, Over the past years, I've been lucky enough to share laughter with you and all our friends. There are a few things that stick out in my mind: "You aint neva' gon' get big!" Midget Fights, "Yeah buddy!" Seeing things in a new light at Roberts Park, "LANDSHARK!", Tree Court, Harassment by cemetery groundsworkers, Stumbling in a stupor through Golden Gate Park on New Years Day, "Dana!" And something that may be of use to us all: â€œLogic only gives man what he needs,â€ he stammered. â€œMagic gives him what he wants.â€ - Tom Robbins. I hope the Spaniards can bless you with some of their magic." -Tommy
17: "yeah buddy" -Max
18: "gigantes, forlan, toepf, deegs, wild turkey, dpuss, homeboy, tux, bats 4 lyfe, big merc, comMERCial, oh crap, is that warren sapp?, on the corner..., hold the phone..., deadmau5, 'youre in my mind, youre in my heart..,' club stein, sante fe on everything, deese lifestyle, mondays, anticipatory bascom hill, B-ing some A, plain schmear!" -Drew
19: "Ey-yo, it's ya man Ruskooo. Adumb, m8, you're one of the best guys I know, one of the best huggers, and you're one of my best friends. When I look at you, I see an adorable little boy I had a crush on in grammar school, but I also see a charming, big-hearted, still adorable, electro-loving, half-british man. Stop blushing. I'm happy we don't go more than a week without 'talking' when we're apart - whether it's sending pics of man cats, sharing music, or our funny little heartfelt moments - it all means a lot to me. Might have to visit you in Espana, maricon! But I'll see you before then. Love you lots. " - Jane | EDC cat
20: "MerceNERO!!!" -Nero | "@ruskoofficial: @aemerc, We don't have to talk about it. I know you'll understand. Hold on." -Rusko | "@djafrojack: I want you to take over control in Spain." -Afrojack
21: "@jackbeats: @aemerc, thanks for coming to our shows!" -Beni & Niall | "@Wolfganggartner: You are a good dancer!" -Wolfgang Gartner | "@LaidbackLuke: Hey, @aemerc, I'm taking you on a journey all around the world with your captains: Steve Aoki Lil Jon Laidback Luke Are you ready? #fun" -Laidback Luke
22: "Merc!!! Dog, I'm gonna miss ya. We've seen some stuff dood. Riding down to avicii ahaha, I didn't think we were gonna make it. It allll started with girl talk and spilling that mop bucket. But the past year or so we have really gotten to know one another. We have sure had lots of laughs. And that got me thinking, and I hav come to the conclusion we only have three common factors. 1. House 2. Work 3. MFC. Have fun man and keep that awareness high." Dawg
26: "Adam: I hope you have the time of your life in Spain or wherever the trip takes you guys... It's going to be amazing! I'm so glad I got to know you (although I'm sure we would've met at UCLA also haha) and life in Madison will be weird with you gone. I'll actually miss having you eat all my sandwiches and not being the only one constantly snacking at work :) Best wishes always and keep us updated on your adventures!" -Tara | "Merc, ojos will never be the same without you.. Good luck with everything and come back to visit whenever you can." -Ross | "Good luck over in Spain. We made a lot of good memories. Like when we had fun and stuff. I'll play a techno song to think of you every 6th Friday of the month. But seriously, you'll be missed. Good luck man. Take care. Have fun." -Bret | "Good luck over in Spain.

27: "Hey chico, We all wish you wouldnâ€™t go, but we know itâ€™s time. I donâ€™t know what Einsteinâ€™s is going to be like without you except my little feet wonâ€™t get stepped on as much Youâ€™re the BEST though, even if you are from the Bay area; my (only) favorite northern Californian. Iâ€™ll miss our California vs Wisconsin chats. Eat, dance, DJ your heart out and donâ€™t forget about us ova here. Espero que tengas el tiempo de tu vida, TIO! But donâ€™t be a stranger. Love, Nicole" | "Merc- It's been a fun 5 years of battling over baseball and stuff. I still don't like your music, but I'd be lying if I said I don't listen to it every once in awhile... Enjoy Europa, hopefully I'll get over to visit you sometime. Ps Halladay > Carpenter > Lince" -Mark | "Merc- It's been a fun 5 years of battling over baseball and stuff.

Stay in touch Buenos Noches Adam Edward Mercer Love ya, miss ya" -Spencer
29: My Top 25 Adam Mercer Memories 1. Your graceful return to Madison where you managed to trip and fall into oncoming traffic on University Ave. and faceplant trying to climb the spike fence across from Logans apartment. 2. Our closing shifts with Liz. Maximum fun, maximum yuks, and a bagel popper legend was born. 3. Late night trips to Fat Sandwich. Thank you for always letting me have a bite of your fat falafel. 4. Deadmau5 concert at the Congress Theater. A night of debauchery. You were crowned Sofa King. 5. You and Drew yelling "Butts" out of your window for all of State St. to enjoy. 6. T-tux Special. Good grains...all the veggies. Toasted n' stuff. (Mustard optional, but recommended) 7. When you would eat all of Bret's food. A heroic act not suited for the faint of heart.
30: 8. The rise of Zombie Tim. 9. Butt's n Dog's California Adventure. And there it was. 10. Our short-lived but meaningful relationship with Four Loko. 11. The dozens upon dozens of platinum hits that resulted from jam sessions in my beat laboratory. 12. Having you and your brothers stare at my junk every time I pooped. 13. Family dinner at Olive Garden. Drew's investigation of the OG's underground wine recycling ring is ongoing. 14. When you would find my hair in your butt after you took showers or used the toilet. 15. Getting to share the Giants and Packers becoming ball champions. 16. Know what I like the most? Cake Farts. Scratch that...watching Cake Farts with Anya. 17. Your appreciation of the premium things in life. 18. That time we stumbled upon a dilly on our way to work.
31: 19. The unstoppable force that is Drew's flatulence being able to penetrate our bedroom doors and rip us out of even the deepest REM sleep. 20. Drew's sexy scavenger hunt. The garbage can was classic but my favorite was always in the freezer. 21. Watching documentaries whilst drinking non-dubious microbrews. 22. Getting to watch your home workouts on a daily basis. If only you could have seen what my plank looked like. 23. You watching me play videogames while you woofed down copious amounts of beans and rice. 24. Achieving top honors in the grueling, intellectually taxing competition that is Erotic Photohunt 25. Indianapolis. Making it rain singles, eating clams and guzzling milk, and the beginning of a love affair with Golden Corral. Adam, I wish you the best in your future endeavors and look forward to the day that we reunite. Until then. Love, Butts
32: Dear Adam, You will be missed by our family. I can't wait to see all of your crazy Europe pictures... You know, the ones that will be absent of Kaitlyn. XOXO, The Kings | Dearest Handsome Adam, We hope you have a great time in Europe! Hope to see you soon! Love, Erin & Bryant | Dear Adam, Good luck with your trip. Everyone needs a short vacation, so try to make it a quick trip and get yourself back to Wisconsin! I still can't believe you would leave after I got you a new light bulb in your room! Remember, the grass isn't always greener on the other side, (but in your case, the grass isn't always greener on the European side). Take care, and be safe! Lynn & Larry
33: Broomie Adam, I can't believe my favorite roomie is leaving! (don't tell the others I said that) It has been great getting to know you this year, and I'm really going to miss seeing you around! With that said, I hope you have an amazing time wherever your travels may take you, and just know that we all will be anxiously awaiting your return Keep in touch! Chelsea | Adam, Thanks for the bed! I'll be sleeping well all semester when you are in Spain. Have an amazing time traveling, learning, and exploring! The pretty broomie will be missed. Keep us updated, and I can't wait to hear about your adventures! -Adelyn | Adam, Sorry i spilled the tomatoes! Have a great time in Europe and try not to look like too much of a tourist during your time there (aka no Giants gear... though Brewers would be acceptable)! Your most short-lived roomie, Jocelyn"
34: My dearest Adam, Thank you for being such a wonderful friend, Club Stein co-worker, roommate, and of course roommate's boyfriend. I remember the early days, when we first bonded over our mutual love for Kaitlyn. I will always remember some of my favorite memories with you - learning about house music, cheering for the Sharks in the Stanley Cup playoffs, celebrating your graduation at your grandma's, your rendition of a British accent and of course "butter"...the list goes on. You've truly become one of my most cherished friends. I wish you the absolute best and most fun experiences in Spain and Europe. I can't wait to see your handsome California looks and smile again! Maybe I'll meet you in Croatia? Can't wait, lots of love! Ally
35: Dearest Roomz, What am I going to do without my favorite roommate!? Who will make me coffee, bring me bagels, and supply me with Q-tips? Not many people would be concerned about the cleanliness of my ears. But, in all seriousness, I have really enjoyed getting to know you over the past year or so. You're a great friend and a real stand-up guy. I am so excited for the adventure you are about to have! This is going to be the most exciting time of your life, and I hope you take advantage of every opportunity. We'll be anxiously awaiting your return as well as all the presents you are going to bring us. Have so much fun! Love, Sharm | ADAAAAAAM!!!! I have been so lucky to have gotten to know you and spend as much time as I did with you this past year! You are such a wonderful, easygoing, and funny person...PLUS a great roomie! I'm definitely going to miss you around our place or stopping in to say hello at Club Stein, but I know you will bring your upbeat spirit and excellent customer service skills to the people of Spain - I am jealous of them already. One of the coolest things is that I consider you to be my own friend independent of Kaitlyn or Ally who introduced you to me. I think we are both very lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives to introduce future friends. I am very excited for you and your future opportunities! I am so jealous of your upcoming months in Spain, but I hope you enjoy the culture, the people, and most importantly FCB! I hope we can stay in touch! Abby
