    Hey so I've been waaaay out of the loop with move in- just got my first round of thrifting done, (BOY DID I EVER, my roommate Centuar1 and I utterly murdered Seattle, more later!) but I don't have a printer running yet, so I haven't been getting those shots!

    Don't worry, it should be online by tomorrow!

    Progress today. Had to get out before ShoeLuv devastated the territory.

    Still hung up on a few, though. It usually rains Pendleton up in here....

    My entry, such as it is. Just hoping for not last place. Again. I had a dream last night that I found the yoga ball but had left my stuff at home. So I asked another thrifter to borrow their phone so I could call up the Frenchie picture on their phone and take the picture with mine. That's a whole other level of obsession.

Seemed nice. Green. Leemeknow if anyone wants a proxy.) [​IMG]

    I am at 18 + 2 bonus points+ a Pendleton jacket. If anybody is better, I'm not going to bother to post, as nothing special.

    BTW you have 54 minutes to post or you forfeit, capnwes is on the East Coast so midnight is in just a bit... I think 18 +2 wins it this week.
