|Okay, so I guess I should have done this like a week ago.

The Plimpton 4
Iris is, I'm sure, by now getting sick of hearing from me (I have to send her spam for outreach), but as for Sienna and Vicky, you two haven't heard form me nearly enough yet!
So, I've been in my room in Plimpton for nearly a week now. It's nice and big. And I got a few things:
A Fridge - to keep food in (big surprise, right?)
A nice big comfy chair (There's more than enough space for it)
Two lamps, one clamp-on for reading in bed, one standing for extra lighting/ reading my my chair - the lighting blows.
Lotsa groceries - those are for cooking. In our kitchen!!!! yayayayay!
Pots, pans, kitchen utensils (lots of them). You guys shouldn't need much of the standard kitchen stuff. I have it. But anything electric (ricers, coffee makers, beaters) it might be nice to bring along (hint, hint).
Extension cords - Useful, because the plugs in our room are dispersed rather abnormally, as in, not in clumps, just one every 7 feet or so.
Misc Stuff to tell you (as a veteran plimptonite, may I remind you?):
There are no obvious places to dry your towels, like no towel racks or something... so I would recommend bringing something.
The bathroom next-door to mine and sienna's rooms was closed to repairs, but now it's fixed. It's better than the one on the other side of the hall, but the shower is worse. I haven't looked at any other bathrooms (other than really obvious ones, like the one in the basement and the one in the foyer).
I don't know about you, but I have a lot of space. And it rocks. Oh, Sienna, I actually did peak into your room, it looks big and square and very nice.
The main stairwell still smells faintly of beer. I dunno know what to tell you about that.
I was unable to find a remote for the TV in the common room, so I don't know how they change channels (the button on the TV itself is... absent).
I've watched 10 episodes of the gilmore girls since Saturday. I have no excuses. I'm just going to have to admit that I am, in fact, a woman. It will be an adjustment, I'm sure, but it's not necessarily a worse life. I will however, need to find some clothes with a large bust, if my body is going to change to match. Oh, and someone will show me how to use those.... "feminine napkins."
Room 206 reeks of pot. I mean, it is baaad. It reminds me of my high school on a rainy winter's day when the stoners were all too afraid of getting their weed wet so they smoked behind lockers when no one was looking. ... I mean.... it stinks. Like whoa.
There is one washer. And two dryers. It blows. There's really not much more to be said about that.
I decided that I'd try out the whole leave my laundry detergent in the laundry room, just to see how it went, and they steal here. So, make sure you have a spot in your room for soap. The idiots care so little that they stole from my transparent detergent bottle. How stupid can you be?
Iris's room will probably be the nicest, since it's on the first floor.
Vicky's room will probably be the worst, since it's on the 3rd floor and there's only a tiny staircase to get up there.
That's all I have.... I think....
Oh, wait, I have one more thing.
I MISS YOU ALL!! Come back to me soon!!!
