Incredibly collegiate things about my apartment

  • All "decorations" are in poster form
  • Number of plates owned: 1
  • The "coffee table" I'm typing this on is a wood board on top of four cinderblocks
  • The aggregate cost of the textbooks inside it make them the most valuable thing present
  • Ketchup only available in individual packet form
  • Bathroom is unspeakably filthy
  • Napkins are paper, never cloth

Things you can do instead of watching the debate

  • Note loudly and obnoxiously how you "don't own a TV"
  • Go shopping, take advantage of everyone being glued to their screens (not bloody likely)
  • Smash the state
  • Re-watch the Kennedy / Nixon debate, decide who really won
  • Stare wistfully at those "Ron Paul 2012" signs you finally pulled out of your front lawn
  • Memorize the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song
  • Read live-blog commentary on the debate (ha!)
  • Your laundry, you incredible slob
  • Make a mental note not to keep writing lists about the election
