Back in my day....
Cute story in the Post on how decorating your dorm room has become sort of a "Trading Spaces" competition. Fancy foutons, crates and desks rather than the university issued institutional furniture of old. It is kind of interesting the variety, design and quality of things you can buy now at discount chic places like Target. Back in the fall of 1988, when I entered U of M, there weren't as many options. Storage crates? Nope, you had to go swipe them from behind the convenience store. Fancy desks? nope....Laptops...nope (If you were really lucky you had an old school Mac, which back then cost about $4000).
Pretty interesting...but I wonder if this style trend carries over to designer beer bongs, pipes or water bongs?
