Life, The Universe and Everything

It's about time I whipped up a post for my blog. I've been working too much and haven't had time for knitting or drinking let alone blogging.

Since Allie moved away, I've been trying to cheer myself up by keeping our evening "wine" tradition alive. I have decided that drinking alone is not taboo. In fact, since my unemployment began in June I have designated 2pm my happy hour. Lately happy hour has been moved to 8pm, but that will change once I move and get settled back into unemployed life again.

Jealous of Allie's close proximity to my favorite border, I decided to also designate Thursday night at Fiesta Night. Tonight I tried my hand at making enchilladas - with marginal success!

In other news, Evan and I have decided to move to Sudbury (again). We got a cute little apartment, and moving days is just 20 days away.

In the heat of the moment, and due to an influx in our "cash flow", I also decided that it was time that Evan and I purchase our very own furniture (as opposed to our apartment full of hand me downs and mismatches). Always an eager little beaver, I posted everything that I wanted to replace on and started selling.

I have had great success with in the past, and this time also proved to be quite glorious. Within 48 hours I have sold everything. Now, this is a good thing... however, I still have 20 days left in Ottawa and am now reduced to one living room chair and a mattress on the floor. I am living like a student all over again!

A woman came today to buy my bedframe, and she nearly pissed herself when she saw my "toolbox". Rather, it is the L House toolbox (which I inherited when Allie moved to foreign lands). I thought it was quite fitting that an apartment of 2 women, should have a toolbox that is actually a shoebox full of IKEA allen keys, masking tape and twine. When Evan first saw this he hung his head in shame. I think he is going to shell out for a more manly toolbox when we move. I don't blame him.

As I was walking home from the Wine Rack (a staple purchase for me lately) I noticed that they had changed the quote in the church sign on the corner of my street. It used to say something about Dinosaurs and becoming extinct. It now says something about too many people having opinions and ideas leads to chaos and war. This quote really disturbed me.

What kind of freaks go to this church at the end of my street? Perhaps if I have a sunday off I should wander down and find out.

I swear, the wine hasn't tasted the same since I moved out. We'll have to have a virtual sn'b (with wine) soon. I love that "toolbox". You totally need to keep it in your new apartment even if Evan upgrades. It's not as though half of the stuff in it would make the cut to be in an actual toolbox. I'm thinking of starting a satellite one here the next time I buy a pair of shoes.

PS: Have you gone to check out the church yet? I'm so curious. BTW, check of Bill Maher's new movie, Religulous. AND, you totally have to rent the Onion movie. The movie is pretty just plainly ridiculous, but it is worthwhile if only for the Melissa Cherry segments.

You need to post more so I stop getting incredibly hungry whenever I view this entry! :D

Life update!
