    Housemates found a house. Now to fend off the growing doubt that nowhere will take me and BF.

    [beginning of money rant]

    Please correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking here, but the hair-splitting, penny-pinching habits at university are really starting to grate my nerves.

    I'm on a detoxification diet, part of a larger lifestyle change. I'm happy I only live around 20-30 minutes away from home because I can take meals to campus. There was no point when I first moved on campus to bring silverware because I ate at the cafeteria before the change, and now I bring meals. Therefore, I often grab plastic utensils from around campus to eat my meals. No harm done. Surely, the university won't mind me using them compared to other expenses.

    Wrong. I was grabbing a plastic fork this morning near one of the food stations when the cashier taps me on the shoulder. Apparently, I'm not allowed to take the plastic utensils because that's only for the people that buy coffee there. (Who needs a fork for coffee anyway?) The cashier had talked to her boss and he/she said that this wasn't allowed. They pay for those utensils, and she's seen people grab fistfuls of sugar packets for their coffee, too.

    My parents pay a crap-load of money for me to go to school here, and plastic utensils aren't included in that? I understand getting upset because people are stealing large amounts of sugar, but I only want one fork for my meals. Is that so much to ask? Just give me a [bleeping] fork! :mad:

    P.S.: I'm probably overreacting, but I'm also running on a little over four hours of sleep.

    not enough calories, will a crab make...:)

    let me also say that often the food providers are sub-contracted....they are not the beneficiaries of your massive tuition bill...that being said, they are probably unwise to discourage your acquisition of one fork as whatever you do occasionally buy there is now in jeopardy...but, in fairness, you would be shocked to see whhat some people feel entitled to gather without a purchase

    not liking that tulle dresses and pajama-style latin shirts are back in style. Not a fan.

    Pajama style latin shirts? Trying to visualize what that even looks like.

    Can't find any great pictures, but instead of all tucked in they go over the pants a little bit, tunic-style.

    Found a pic:

    The line between "nice" and "tool" used to not be as blurry.

    And I hate those stupid pajama tops. It says "sparkly, but lazy."

    the shirt: depends on the can be very good or very bad
    tulle; yet another style that only looks good if you are tiny

    FTFY ;)

    I like the tunic style tops, but think they look better when they are double breasted and not that open.

    The last one I saw, I wanted to wear over black dance pants to teach in. As it stands now, I have one of those open-fronted black three-quarter-length over-tops that I've worn almost out, because it makes okay lines people can see, but also, I can wear all the tops that would otherwise show my immense fatness if I didn't wear it over them to hide.
