My parents and I went to Madison today. I've never been there, or at least not when I've been old enough to remember. I went there as a baby, but that doesn't count. It's gorgeous. If I had been familiar with that town before I applied to college, I definitely would have applied there. I want to go to grad school there. I like how it's a decent-sized town; I'm sick of how Champaign-Urbana is in the middle of nowhere. I went to Urban Outfitters and got this awesome batik hoodie, and it was on sale because the print was messed up or something--there was supposed to be a flower on the upper left side but there wasn't, but I didn't care. I also got a gorgeous suede messenger bag. It's so soft. And then my family stopped at a Cracker Barrel on the way home, and I got a shirt that said, "Good things sprout in small packages" and has Sprout (the Jolly Green Giant's nephew or whatever) on it. It's awesome. Stuff is awesome.

Madison is really cool, from the few hours I spent there last summer. I feel similarly about Champaign-Urbana, and considering the fact that I've lived in Normal for all my life, that's not saying much about C-U. We'll have to take road-trips to the little tiny farming communities in order to humble ourselves to the fact that we don't live in a farm-house. Or something.

Yay, Cracker Barrel!
