059. Ba-dump

I went out partying last night and only just now discovered the horrendous, purple welts on my back and arms. Yikes. More updates and a recap soon. I owe it to you, and there is a lot to talk about.

058. IHOP

Catherine wanted to go to IHOP tonight, so I invited Leslie, and then Phil and Ashley joined us, and then Sandra, and it was the most amazing time any of us ever had. We took the bus there and walked over this sketchy high way to get to it. The place was near empty in the middle of this vacant parking lot, but, man, it was gooood eatin'. I even got a kid's sundae made the size of a normal sundae! I split it with Lynne. Going back, we waited an hour for the bus and started playing charades. Oh, it was so fun. Once we got back, we played Grand Theft Auto. I called Alvin to take care of rent and he stopped by (we quickly hid the booze) and I showed him the light fixtures that need to be replaced. He's such a nice guy. A little while later, we decided to go to Shaw's and I bought a pillow for $5. Hee. I'm in such a happy mood. Oh, and Lauren is being very civil. She's on my nice list right now. It's very pleasant.

057. Hobo Cart

Some other time, I'll go back and fill in those empty days. My week was long and tiring. I have work again tomorrow. But today Catherine and me went to Target and found a nice futon for $50. The trouble was: we had no way to get it home. So, we ran around to U-haul, Home Depot, and wherever else we could think of to try to rent a truck, but you needed a reservation. Finally, I called a cab and we took the box apart so it fit in the trunk and got it home. Then I sat down and set it up. I hope that means when we go separate ways, it's mine. I don't want to go to work tomorrow. Blegh. Last night Catherine and I couldn't sleep, so we looked on craigslist for free stuff. We found a few listings that were about a mile away (we didn't realize that at the time, of course, we thought it was a few blocks). So, three-o-clock in the morning, we went dumpster diving. We found a hobo's shopping cart and pushed it the mile to the houses where the free stuff was. We found nice rugs for our room (palm trees and monkeys!) and Catherine found a good wood chair to use for her desk. Then, I found a bag of almost brand-new shoes all in Catherine's size. It was awesome. We abandoned the hobo cart and carried the rugs and everything home to wash them. This morning we washed the house like whoa. Our rooms look amazing.
