My iTunes: Preludio from Verdi's Aida
I know that "the color" is blue right now (a la Anna's photo blog), but I thought red would be my theme today. I stopped by one of the libraries on campus and explored a little. I found this great red phone and I had to take a picture of it.
The other bit of "red" in my life today is the new pair of reading glasses I picked up -- they have red ear pieces. Since I'll be spending so much time reading over the next few weeks in Philly and I forgot my reading glasses, I figured I should invest so I wouldn't give myself massive headaches. Maybe I'll take a picture of them later.
Today's interesting occurrence -- making tea in a frying pan. Yes, a frying pan. Would you believe that our apartment has a freezer, refrigerator, oven, and stove, but no microwave? The only way to heat water is the frying pan. It seems to work, but it makes me laugh. Oh, the life of a student...
Speaking of reading, I have a TON of research ahead of me and I should get started. I'm spending most of tomorrow at the Library Company and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and I need to research what items I'd like to call while I'm there. Thank goodness for online catalogs.
