Meet my new lamp! My friends Caitlin and Eileen were in need of mugs and miniskirts, respectively, so today I introduced them to one of my favorite thrift stores in Bowling Green, the Clothes Lion. It's such a great place, with more knick-knacky finds than anything else, including an Art Deco theater chair (for a mere $175) and tons of Illinois license plates for some reason. I picked this up because I was in need of something to illuminate my desk. My room is all done up in old things--my grandmother recently moved house and let me have at all her extra vases and the like and I'm really into crazy flea market things anyway. I think when I get my own place I'm not going to have anything new.
Afterward we went to a show that featured one really bad band and one good band and I just spent an hour trying to decide what to wear tomorrow, my first day of classes. It's totally silly, I know, but I feel like most of the ones I'm going to take are going to be the intimate, centered-around-discussion kind, and so there's a bit of pressure. I ended up picking out the kind of thing I wear everyday. My first class is not until 11 o'clock and it's called Speculative Fiction, which means I won't be reading the Odyssey. I'm pretty excited about that.
Oh, and thanks for putting up with my LiLo impression in the last post. I'm really not a bad person. And interesting writings will follow.
