Things I Just Bought


This New York City in a Bag - I was looking at the Superman statuette that Pete has in his apartment and I realized that this set would be PERFECT to go right under it. And then I was like, "well...if it's perfect..."

A set of personalized assorted yellow pencils. All different shades of yellow. All with the quote "adventure is just one mistake away" in hot pink. I feel like yellow and pink is one of the girliest color combinations ever and I am so excited to have a dozen of those delicious summery-colored pencils...

I feel these purchases are justifiable for a few reasons:

1. I was earlier preaching to Pete and Steve that since I am a college student, and I do have a dependable income (NOT my parents, although they help - thanks mom and dad!) and I DO have a savings account that no, is not full, but there's some money in there - I can buy stuff, right? I mean, I know very few college students that have savings accounts. Pete JUST got one of his own - about two months ago. I can budget and be scary about money my whole life, I should be getting good stuff now.

2. It's the end of the year and I've worked HARD and hell, I deserve a couple of cutesy things!

3. They were so pretty online...

In other news, I've heard of overstock (who hasn't?!) but it just dawned on me that there are probably kitchen things there. And there are. And even though it's 2:30 in the morning and I'm exhausted and Pete will be calling me to drag my butt out of bed in less than eight hours to go see the Star Trek movie, I feel the need to get through EVERYTHING in that category and imagine how amazingly well-stocked my future house will be...you know, when I'm budgeting and stuff.

UPDATE: Hmmmm. I just realized that most "normal" pencils are a yellow color...oh well. THEY WILL STILL BE RAD.
