Everything I've intended to accomplish today has been done, which is something that I haven't managed to pull off in a very long time. More proof that the path I've chosen is the right one.
I suppose it would have been helpful for me to mention that I already have a 100% pimp pocket watch. It's the silver Sandman pocket watch, with a carved relief of a John J. Muth illustration of Matthew the Raven on the cover.
I'm going to go with the watch. The cooler or the blanket would be eminently more practical in the long run, but having a cheap gold watch to commemorate my time with the University is too tempting for the traditionalist in me to ignore.
