  1. um

    Nothing really to say here. I just can't leave drunk blog post as the top one! That's crazy. I could tell you how much I love my new loom - a lot. In fact, once I'm done writing this, I shall descend upon my looming room (aka 2nd bedroom, aka "the study" and start working on some napkins that I have ready to weave. Cloth napkins! I honestly had never considered such finery for my life until I went to my little 2 day weavign retreat/ classes, and realized that that's totally a thing that ...

  2. .....and

    OK. disclaimer: drunk. pretty drunk.

    Disclaimer #2: humbebrag. A little. it's weird. so, I'm doing it.

    Here's the thing. I'm drunk because I went to an industry mixer. there's this thing, once every few months, hosted by various people, designed to get people in my industry together for an evening at a bar with some drinks, door prizes, all that jazz. I go now with a good friend of mine, who works at a different company. Between the two of us, we know pretty much ...

    I'd say that was anti-climatic, but it sure didn't feel like it. Spent the whole last week carting boxes over in 2s and 4s in my car, and then yesterday we got the moving truck, and 2 truckloads later, we have a new apartment full of our crap. There was a brief scare though, on Saturday, when we stopped by the new place to drop off some boxes, only to discover that the sole elevator in the building was broken. The landlady didn't know if it would get fixed, or when it would get fixed, but she was ...

  4. So that's happening

    Signed the lease papers yesterday. I currently have a spreadsheet that is listing out 2 columns of expenses: stuff we need for the move, and stuff I totally want for our fabulous new apartment. The sums at the bottom of the lists are depressingly large. I always said that the next time I move, I would hire movers and cleaners to take care of all the shit I didn't want to do. Yeah, that was before spreadsheeting the expense of it all. In theory, I will be well-employed next year, with 2 basically ...

  5. Further entry in the apartment saga

    Well, it took a few months, but we looked at a second apartment today. I've often referred to myself as doing things on a geological timescale, so it makes sense that there were nearly 6 months between apartment hunting attempts.

    Well, if the one we looked at in May was awful, the one we looked at today was spectacular. All we had to do was raise our maximum rent limit. But oh man, do I want this place, or one very similar to it. I don't care that it's literally 4 times as expensive ...
