The Night Owl

Sunday, 2/22:
Daniel and I walked to Sonning. On the way home, we cut across Palmer Park and I took this awful-quality photo of SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS!

The Intellectuals

Wednesday, 2/18:
These bad boys have been in HUMMS 244 for a few weeks now.

The Kebab Lover

Monday, 2/16:
I was walking back up Wokingham Road from the girls' house on Culver when I saw this lying outside Subway, pointing directly to Adam Quality Foods. Maybe it wanted half a goat. The blue lights in the distance are from an ambulance.

The Bargain Hunter

Sunday, 2/15:
Went to London with Reena and discovered this classy glove at the top of Portobello Road!

The Reverse Michael Jackson

The 13th again:
This was an extremely awkward picture to take! New condos are being built on Green Road, which I traverse every day on the way to Whiteknights. A few days earlier, I'd seen this, but it had been covered in frost so I had no idea what its true color was. When I saw that it was black and rubber, I tried to quickly (hence the blurry chunk of my finger in the foreground) snap a picture of it without alerting the construction workers directly across from me as to what I was doing. (As if they'd have been able to figure it out.)

The Gamblers

Azar texted me with this picture on... I think it was Friday the 13th again. She was playing poker in HUMMS and they were hanging around.

The Hedgehog

Friday again, on Wokingham Road.

The Conehead

Friday, 2/13:
Outside the Bridges entrance. Horribly mangled, just chilling with a cone.

The Arthritic

Thursday, February 12:
Christchurch Road Correspondent Dipesh says: I found this chap on Christchurch Road; I walked past him on my way to campus but decided to cross the road and investigate on my way home.

The Rolling Stone

Aaron also elucidates: 
Numero dos. Found on the way back from church to my house, on Elmhurst Road, just kickin' about.

The Quarterback

Thursday, 2/12:
Aaron says: This is numero uno. Found on my way to my friend's house to watch the Super Bowl, corner of Addington and Eastern.

The Prospective Student

Wednesday, 2/11:
Dipesh says: I found this one on the way to Cedars; had to quickly run away from my tour group to take a photo.

The Hitchhiker

About a minute later on the same road:
I bet someone dropped it as they were rummaging for change before getting on the bus.

The Roadkill

The same Saturday: a furry specimen on King's Road on the way into town.

The Neighbor

Saturday, 2/7: on my very street! It's still there, although now it's completely drenched from rain and mangled from many tramplings.
EDIT: for some reason, I felt compelled to pick the rancid thing up and stick it on our window ledge, where it remained for nearly a month, growing steadily crustier, until someone finally threw it away in exasperation.

The Mammoth

Friday, 2/6:
Daniel and I were wandering around town putting up the posters he'd made for the gig on Sunday. He spotted this MASSIVE one outside Global.

The Commuter

February 4 or thereabouts:
On the 17 on the way into town, I saw a guy drop this glove as he paid for a ticket. I don't know if he reclaimed it when he left, but a woman a few stops later picked it up and put it next to the changebox (what is that thing called?)
