Random stuff. I stopped at home on the way to class to grab my trenchcoat because it's about a mile walk from my car to the Government and Politics building and it had been a cold, nasty rain when I was out at noon. I figured since I was there anyway I might as well tuck into the cheese I'd picked up at Cowgirl last night…. I needed a plastic bag for the cheese because I was going to the theatre and didn't want to stink the place up. DC now has a plastic bag tax, so I paid 10 cents for it. It's well worth it, a nice bag that's not only made from corn, it also helps you practice your French. Fall marches on…. Neat, you never see them actually changing the gasoline prices. (Inevitably it's going up, but I'm not going to complain since it's still criminally cheap compared with European prices.) I liked this light.
