Aha! Apartment!


Wednesday: saw an apartment that was utter squallor. The lady renting it was crazy and disorganized –– she had to clean a path on the floor for me to walk around the apt., and apparently there was a whack load of furniture that came with the place. Probably the landlord's idea of free storage.

There was an overwhelming smell of decay and dirty socks, a gross kitchen and graffiti on every kitchen cabinet. Cripes! I didn't even ask to see the bathroom.

Got back to the studio, and on a whim, tried calling a BoardWalk property. Turns out they have a bachelor renting on June 15th. Currently being renovated, hence the 15th, the suite will have new carpeting, new counters, new lino and new appliances. I get downtown on my bike in record time, see the place (it's gorgeous and the building has a pool, hot tub and sauna), and put the money down. Found out today that I got it! Woo!

Had a wicked day so far: apartment's mine, got some great work potential, sunny and gorgeous outside, and I just ran into a friend who I haven't seen in a year since she ran off to Vancouver.

All in all, pretty damn good.

My blog seems to be broken. It's showing a non-existent post, that I put in as a test. It's sad, because I have a wealth of funny things to write about and some funny design stuff to upload. If this post actually works, I'll update properly in a matter of minutes.

Yup. That was me this weekend.

Oh, and no more creepy fan mail or photos of iPod obscenity, please.

Update! Woo!

Right. But you still have to realize that I'm lazy, and feeling rather apathetic and unproductive today. As such, I have earned my wage for only about 2 billable hours, and spent the remainder of my time tinkering with the Gopher Industries project.

Anyway, photos!

I haven't had lunch, so there might be thumbnails after I eat some food and have some Coke. I wouldn't bet on it though. In fact, don't bet on it. Better yet, I'll just tell you now: there aren't going to be thumbnails.

Wretched updating. I'm going to do my utmost to have a nice big update this week so as to give the impression that I've been updating for the past couple of days regularly.

Work is insanity often. Time to myself almost non-existent. I still need to sit down with my best friend. I have this absolute desire to shut myself off from the world.

My apologies for the lack of updating. It's been insane, but things are slowly getting back on track.

This weekend was especially good to the Monkey.

- Did some super hot design work.
- Survived getting everything ready for the Culture and State conference.
- Played some video games with Crazy Mike and Hot Sam, and later went for one of the best evenings I've had with my best friend.
- Had a good evening at my best friend's grad, followed by chilling at a friend's place watching vintage Bugs Bunny.

Enjoy the photos. Let me know what you think.
