Richard Bach, you know Krista too??
My smoke detector is more sensitive than a vat of estrogen-powered nitroglycerin.
I guess searing foods has to wait until I move to a better kitchen.
When I was little, I would take all my pillows and blankets and make a nest in my bed.
I still do that.
Don’t try to upgrade your Operating System unless you’ve got a product key.
I think I’ve got an Ubuntu disk laying around somewhere.

Steamed milk, espresso, honey.
How did we ever talk shit about people before the anonymity of the internet? It makes my heart sad to know there are so many people so unhappy with their lives that the only joy they can find is in belittling strangers on the internet.
I bet I know some of those people.
My current lease started May 1, 2009. I think I knew in July or so I wasn’t going to renew it. I thought I wanted to stay in the same neighborhood, but I’m pretty convinced that, if I do, I’ll feel like I’m living in a dorm no matter how posh of a pad I find.
I was thinking for a while that Glendale would be nice but I really just can’t leave the Lake area. I love it. So I started searching elsewhere. Where I really would love to live is the Historic Third Ward. If I could afford to double my rent, I totally would, but I work in public health and I have student loans and a monthly car payment. Shiny orange cars aren’t cheap, you know!
I could probably swing it if I really wanted but, I like adding money into savings and having some left over to spend so I went for the next best thing. Bay View!
Craigslist seemed to find me some great deals, but I had to stop looking. I mean all these great places had leases starting in January. I was looking a little too early. I forced myself not to look anymore because it’s just depressing seeing something you want that you can’t have.
Then a coworker of mine told me about a place she used to live in. With a garage. Two bedrooms for less than what I’m paying now. And possibly available at the time I needed it to be. Maybe. The current tenants weren’t sure if they were leaving or not. Long story short, current tenants decided they wanted to move out. I met with the landlords, I got an application, I filled out the application, and I turned it in.
Today I had a phone call saying they are accepting my application and I’m signing my lease on Saturday! Lease starts April 15th.
You know what that means right?
May Ikea Adventure!!
My new rental is not only the upper part of a duplex, with 2 bedroom, a garage, and a balcony, I also get basement space! My plan is to turn it into a lounge area, filled with books! I’ll need seating and shelves and a lamp and an area rug. And also some things for the actual house part of the flat. Ikea is the only solution.
I’m also having dinner parties. Who wants an invite? :-)
