Tuesday I drove up to Greensboro, aka “The Big City.” I wanted to see the art museum at UNCG. I managed to get lost about five times. There are one-way streets everywhere and the drivers are homicidal. Luckily, I came across the visitors’ center, so I got a map and directions from a very friendly old lady. Have you ever noticed that there are always old ladies manning visitors’ centers? Once I finally got there the museum was small but very nice.
After that I parked downtown. Lo, I found that a single quarter gets you a whole hour in the parking meter. Then I walked around the older part of town and found some great antiques stores and junk shops. Finally I went to Natty Greene’s for a pint and some chicken fingers. I then proceeded to get equally lost on the way home.
Nicole figured out the bills for the month. My rent and all the utilities for July came to $177. I couldn’t freaking believe it. So, I’m staying here for as long as she lets me, because the cheapskate in me can’t pass that up. That way I can save for school.
Now I need to go watch my new Star Trek: TNG Season 5 DVDs. That’s right, you heard me. I ain’t ashamed of it.
