Book Club, Birthday Parties, Jam-Packed Sundays

I finally have gotten to the stage in my Manchester move (two weeks to go!) where I’m packing my days with everything I’m going to miss about Durham and North Carolina. Last week I went to my final book club (sad).  We read “The Red Tent” (not a fan in the slightest) and had a theme party.  Marjorie outdid herself in the costume arena- observe:

Swank dress form (with the shirt included!)

and a light meter!

I also picked up an ALF board game, some shoes, a tent, two cd players, a record player, and a cute leather carry-on sized bag- all for free! thank you craigslist and freecycle (and of course, the folks who were forced into giving away their possessions because of their move).

Finally, on my walk through parts of Durham today I came across this bizarre fake/electronic/alien tree thing:

and a cotton plant! it blew my mind.
