Walden and Prada

Apparently, another CouchSurfer lives right down the street from me. My second CouchSurfer, Lana, had been camping there before she arrived.

Originally from New Zealand, she finds jobs in England to make money to travel around Europe.

When the money runs out, she goes back to England to wait tables until she's ready to embark on another trip.

She camped with me for about a week while waiting to catch the ferry back to England.

We were both pinching pennies so we used an old movie card of mine that had two free tickets to see The Devil Wears Prada.

Now I'm reading the book, which is a very different version of the same story, different events, different characters, and more celebrities.

It opens with a Walden quote:
"Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes."
-Henry David Thoreau, Walden 1854
I wonder what Thoreau would think of people going off to the woods to read his book (and the 79 others that would fit) on their Sony Reader.
