I'd meant to go shopping on Sunday but didn't, so after work today I bussed it to Target.  (Sidenote: Coming from a cheap family, I never had any problem with Wal-Mart, but come college everyone was all about Tar-jhay and of course I'm contrary, plus I was so not a fan of their giant red-and-white ads.  So when I'm in a Wal-Mart I think "I should be feeling Liberal Guilt" whereas when I'm in a Target I think, "I am totally betraying my principles by being here" -- because yes, I was totally opposed to Target on principle.)

I'm getting this tablecloth, but I'm undecided as to napkins.  Originally I was thinking green, but I worry about the apparent Christmas theme and wonder if I I should have gotten these instead.

I was most stoked about the Isaac Mizrahi [which name totally makes me feel like I'm in Sex and the City, by the way] sheer wood weave placemats -- which I can't find online to link to.

I bought this flatware set but worry that it isn't what I really want.  OriginalRoomie's flatware is blue, and NewRoomie's is black, so I'm kinda limited to shades of brown.  (We totally share flatware, but I'm not a huge fan of the black set, and the blue set only has like four of each, so it gets used up quickly.)

Yes, I do really enjoy that I am concerned not just about what I find aesthetically pleasing individually but what fits the aesthetic theme I'm creating.  (Which reminds me that I really need to figure out how to hang the paintings I have.)

When I got home, NewRoomie was finishing up dinner with a guy she goes to school with (they have Orientation this week).  Yay socialness in my apartment.  He even brought beer.
