Sep '06 - May '08
leaving the convenience store located in MIT's student center, i ran into a colleague who asked me how my end of semester was going. I replied by showing him the contents of my purchase --
a kingsize bag of M&M's
he laughed and simply stated "ouch."
Then he told me of an instance in a previous semester when, to make a cast model for studio , he had to purchase a package of pantyhose and a bottle of Vaseline from the store at around 2am. I believed him ... for the most part.
what are some of the strangest/hilariously depressing end-of-semester purchases you archinecters have had to make? funny anecdotes encouraged.
