The Clothing Show was also a bust, apart from this silk-screened t-shirt featuring my house! (For real. That's the eaves of my new place in the upper right hand corner above the streetcar.) It was basically a bunch of designers who figured it was a good opportunity to get rid of last season's stock. Annoying. It's a good thing I used my student press pass to get in for free. (I pay $6000 in tuition fees a year for this press pass. I might as well put it to good use.)
In other news, Carla (our loyal and hard-working EIC) informed us today that she has created an "RRJ* Breakdown Meter." I didn't get to grill her for details about what warrants a code red on the meter, because immediately after this annoucement, everyone started trying to one-up each other on how many times in a period of one day they had cried at school so far this year. (I think Rebecca took the prize because she has already cried 3 times in one day.)
It's only October 1st.
I, on the otherhand, am basing my RRJ/McClung's Breakdown Meter on my health. Pinkeye is only like a code yellow. I'm scared to find out what code red is.
Because I know you guys can't get enough of the pink eye photos. (Check out how swollen my right eye was--you can tell because it's waaaaay smaller than my left eye in this photo. Hilarious. But only in retrospect.)
