been there, done that, bought the...

and we're back to the tee-shirt conundrum. Mostly because I shuffled some things around in the apartment in the last few days to accommodate some of Grandpa's things, and the tee-shirts resurfaced. I was looking at all of them [I needed a distraction - Grandpa has a MRSA infection now] and I realized that this thing spans more than ten years of my life; two marching bands, three theatre companies, one euro trip. But there's nothing in it representing Duquesne [I'm not buying a $10 shirt at the Duq B&N only to cut it up, but I haven't found any at Goodwill South Side] There used to be a Goodwill out towards my placement; I wonder if it's still there... if I found a tee-shirt from our school I could appliqué an apple on it.

Which reminds me [don't ask how that reminds me - stream of conciousness] we'll be celebrating  Read Across America in March, and I've been tasked with decorating our door for the celebration. And I'm going with this, at least as a theme. I'm really hoping there's a bazillion other "Cat and the Hat" doors [that's really awful of me, isn't it?] I realize it's Dr. Seuse, and Cat in the Hat is his most well known thing next to Green Eggs and Ham. It's still in in the development stage, but I'm hoping to work recycled material into it - someone has a door with Styrofoam cups that looks like a snowman, I'm fairly confidant I can pull this off.
