On the way to work today I found a rug on sale at Urban Outfitters that is now on my bedroom floor. Seeing it there really makes me happy. Strange, but true.
I tried to cancel most of my cable today, but the guy on the phone offered me a way to keep HBO without all of the other worthless digital channels; so I caved and am not saving much money. Maybe I'll try again next week. I wish that there was a way that I could pay for just HBO, Comedy Central (or just the Daily Show), the networks, and maybe CNN and MTV, but apparently this technology is not yet available. It's not like I'm asking for a flying car.
After the techfee meeting (1st round over, almost out of money!) I met Carolyn at Solstice (I gave up on the espresso free week for a mocha) to plan a happy hour for prospective students. We walked the Ave and decided that the place that best fit our matrix of reservable, close, casual (allowing people to comfortably arrive late/leave early), and not depressing was Finn MacCool's. It's kind of funny that we walked ~ 10 blocks to find a place that was across the street, but the weather turned out great (and I didn't bring my camera to campus because of the overcast afternoon skies. but really, do I need any more pictures of cherry blossoms?).
Also noticed: it seems like graffiti is on the rise in town, evening sunlight is back, Rilo Kiley might be emo-country.
