Finger pointed, eyebrows low.

My new room finally resembles an actual room, instead of a storage unit. The place is separated into two areas: Sleepland, USA, and Entertainmentville, NL. Michele's 70s-orange couch makes an excellent divider between these two warring nation-states, since it fosters understanding but still encourages healthy competition. I'm currently taking suggestions (besides those involving incense) on how to dispel the odd funk that's lingering in the room. Maybe if I light a signal fire I'll both create a nice smoky ambiance and attract some seafaring vessels.

It looks like I'll be Mr. Fix-It around the apartment this year, since Brian doesn't really seem to care. My shower this morning was more of a gentle misting than cleansing blast. When I mentioned that fact to Brian he said, "Yeah, it used to be OK a few weeks ago, but now it's not." So I took off the shower head and parts of it fell out into the tub. Going to Target is now officially on my list of Things To Do Today. Also on the list of things to do is helping Dianna move into her new apartment, selling a mini-fridge, and going to Gottsi to look at some new conch jewelry (and possibly returning with a DimpleBot). If there's time I'd like to go to an outdoor store that's having a ridiculous going-out-of-business sale. Dianna might pick up a pair of $19.99 (!) inline skates, and I might buy some street/bike shoes that are about 60% off. Adventure, Berkeley is thy name.

my friend, let me give you some advice: one thing that will WRECK your feng shui and also increase your room-reek is to add a small black TV table on wheels.

unless you really really want it, and then I will give it back, having stolen it from your garage last night

watching a TV on the floor,

By all means, keep it! Please? I was really hoping someone would want that TV stand, so I'm glad that it found a good home.

Speaking of TV-related items, I accidentally left my DVD remote somwhere in the garage (probably on the messy table). If someone sees it, please don't use your incredible brain-powers to turn it into a potted plant. Because without it, I don't have any way to control my DVD player, and it may run amok.

hmmm...i have seen no dvd remotes in the garage but then i haven't really been looking. fyi dood EVERYTHING needs to be out of the hiz-house by friday night, so feel free to come back and pick up any straggling items, (poster, kitchen things, garbage in garage), sometime before friday.

also is this the mini-fridge that you just bought from erica? trying to get rid of it already? wowza. sell at a profit! $6.00!

Yup, Dianna decided she didn't really need the fridge, so it was up for grabs. Already sold to some guy for $10. Buy low, sell high!

As for getting things out of the house by Friday....why Friday? I thought the 25th (Sunday) was the last cleaning day? Unfortunately, I can't stop by any earlier than Friday night to grab stragglers. When are we making a Goodwill run? ARE we making a Goodwill run? I thought that since you guys might have stuff for Goodwill, too, that we could just all do it together. If not, though, then I'll get on that.

No, Michele, no! I have to know. For the love of God, woman, tell us! Are you going to Goodwill together or will two separate trips have to be made?!
