Also, an ashtray
, especially if Mom made it in a crafts class, or is otherwise interesting (even if you don't smoke, it's handy to have), a small rag rug
(dorm room floors are cold, and mine was liberally dusted with rat poison
from a previous occupant), and a hot pot
(even if they're supposed
to be banned). Kudos for having a tummy TV
as well....back at NYU
, anyone with all four was considered really living.
You'll probably want to pack (or aquire) some kind of beverage containers in various sizes: I once attended a BYOB
party where the only container available for my sherry
was a small handle-less tea cup
(part of a "scholar cup
" set from Ten Ren
). A curious Asian student, latching onto this oddment, sipped the contents, and declared "That's the worst sake
I ever had!"
