More questions about blocking

I'm about to leave for a weekend, and I thought this would be a good time to block Rambling Rose. I have to admit to not having blocked before (shame on me!), mainly due to lack of space, not lack of desire. My roommate happened to move out, since she finished early, and so right now, I do have space... but maybe not materials. I don't have a blocking board, and while Google did bring up some pretty cool ideas for things to buy and use as a blocking board, I don't have time to go buy something right now... and I haven't run across anything yet that mentions materials from the home. Here is what I have in my dorm room: a desk with limited space, a bed with bedding on it, a bed without bedding (but the mattress is covered with a plastic, it's a school mattress), towels, two really big Rubbermaid bins, and obviously, the floor. Where is the best place to wet block my sweater? I thought the bed might be, because I can pin it to the bedding, but then I worried that it might mildew... it is probably going to take a long time due to humidity. Since I'll be gone for a couple of days, is this even the right time to do it?

EDIT: I don't know if it matters, but I forgot to mention that the yarn is Brown Sheep Cotton Fine, 80% cotton and 20% wool.
