What do you do when there's wildfires burning throughout the city and you're not keen to go outside and frolic in the lack of proper sunshine? You do this: Day one with new table

Of course, this is also what you do when you have a huge mid-term exam approaching on Tuesday that threatens to disembowel you if you don't properly study for the thing. My studies have been anything but proper, but I'm at least feeling better this time around than I was for the previous mid-term.

And by the way, check out the sexiness that is my new dining table! I picked it up yesterday after having seen it advertised on craigslist in a moving sale. I haven't actually dined at it yet, as I promptly pulled out my books and laptop so I could study at it. Still, methinks I'm going to get my money's worth from it.
