1. All kitted out with U of T logowear: 00:09
I splurged on a pink-and-white zip-up hoodie with "University of Toronto" written across the zippered front. It was expensive, but I'll get more wear out of it than out of the T-shirts, at least while I'm in a temperate country.
And I picked up a corduroy miniskirt, too! Why does U of T have small corduroy miniskirts with the school name on them?
We really should have cute IML T-shirts. I'd wear an IML baby-tee. The Google shirt I'm wearing right now fits quite nicely.
Anyway, I have to plan my backpack for next week's trip. I'm bringing cookies. When I went to Cambridge, I made it through a week with my backpack, but I ended up leaving my plastic containers behind. Maybe I can just wrap up the plastic containers nicely and give them a tin each. David and Jonathan are Cool People, and definitely deserve cookies. =)
I _might_ bring the red malong if I have space. It's very versatile, and I'd love to wear it at least once just to bring a little flavor to the conference.
