Hello everybody! Sorry about the lack of updates… We moved into our apartment! It’s been a little crazy. We had our bed delivered Monday night (the only furniture we currently have), and the Snook and I decided to save twenty bucks by putting it together ourselves. You should’ve seen us. It’s a black iron frame bed with a canopy, the kind with the rails and the slats of wood that hold up the mattress. Unfortunately we first hooked the rails up to the outside of the frame, which meant that the wood had a little too much wiggle room. We didn’t realize that, of course, until we’d put on the mattress and made the bed and everything. We both jumped on to test it, made one little tentative bounce, and CRASH! We ended up on the floor. So we had to take the whole damn thing apart and start over. We eventually got it though.
Yesterday Snookums and I headed in to Grace Brothers, the big department store, to order a bunch of appliances. (Grace Brothers always reminds me of Are You Being Served? It was all I could do to keep from mentioning Mrs. Slocombe’s pussy. *grin*) Anyhoo, we got a widescreen TV, a fridge, a vacuum, a washing machine, a microwave, and a crock pot. Yeah, that was a chunk of change. It’s all getting delivered tomorrow though! So we’ll finally be able to start buying perishable food again.
We’ve also been going nuts at IKEA. Here’s the couch we’re getting tomorrow. (Sorry, it’s in Swedish.) While I wait for all the deliveries, the Snook is heading back to the land of flat-packed furniture to pick up our dresser, the dining room set, and a heapin’ helpin’ of bookshelves. We’re busy little bees.
Ooh! Did I mention that we just saw They Might Be Giants at the local record store? Seriously, like 20 minutes ago. It was awesome. We’re gonna head back soon to get something signed. (Some freak brought a toaster. A toaster. I kid you not.) We’re seeing them in a proper concert later tonight. Excitement!
Did I mention that this is my first official blog from an Internet cafe? The phone in the flat was hooked up today, but we don’t have an ISP yet. (The Snook is researching various plans at a computer behind me as we speak.) So basically, updates aren’t going to be very regular until I can blog from the house, which hopefully be soon. Cross your fingers, kids!
