i almost hate posting this because i don't want to sound like a complainer, but i did want to mention that my smart alec pilled up another article of clothing today. it's my favorite hoodie, which i've worn all summer, and today with the smart alec for the first time. for the record, it's a girly-style american apparel hoodie, 100% cotton. i'm now sporting pills all over the back. i'm really going to have to figure out which clothes are likely to pill and which aren't, so i know what i can/can't wear when i want to use my backpack.
