I had to write this down 'cause it's so cool - I went down to the PO to see what packing material they have. They don't have much. In the way of shock-absorbing stuff, they've got . . . bubble wrap. Pretty pricey bubble wrap too.
So I come back to the dorm, thinking that I'm gonna end up needing to scrounge for newspaper, and what do I see in the trash can? A rather large garbage bag, FULL of styrofoam packing material. Aww jeah :)
