How do I install a curtain between my apt's paper thin vertical blinds and the window to block out the light? [pic inside]

I just moved into an apartment where the bedroom has a fantastic view of a street lamp.
The vertical blinds are paper thin. This is not helping me sleep.
I looked behind the blinds and discovered that the previous occupant may have had the same problem. Here's a picture of remnants of the previous install
When I shop online for curtain rod, I either get curtain rods that install in place of the blinds, or tension ones for bathtubs.
The former won't work since I can't (shouldn't) remove the apt's blinds. The latter won't work because I'm thinking of getting some heavy insulating/blocking curtains.
What did the former occupant have installed? What should I be searching for?
