Anyway, I championed a few things this week, and I'm proud enough to post about them on my blog. Ready? Here they are:
- Wearing my spinster sweater at work. If you know me, you unfortunately know this sweater. It's bulky, sort of a wrap-around, blue & gray, and horribly unattractive. Still, it's incredibly warm and comfortable, and I sit under an AC vent that seems determined to turn me into a human popsicle. I also work in a library, so I occasionally think it's fun to dress like a stereotypical old librarian. Nobody I work with dresses that way, but I wish someone would.
- MS Publisher. I'm making a poster/banner/timeline *thing* of opera and American history since my birth. It's a bit gimmicky, but that's partially the point. I have absolutely no graphic design experience, so the poster isn't fancy, but it's almost done.
- Finding ice cream near the library. This sounds trivial, but it was a big deal. The trick was to not look for ice cream itself, but to go to Good Stuff and order milkshakes. Why there's no standalone ice cream or froyo shop on Pennsylvania between 1st & 3rd SE is beyond me.
- The office Keurig. I bought a box of k-cups, and I keep tea bags in my bag. Consistent hot drinks helps offset the tundra climate mentioned above.
