I moved some furniture last night. I think this is better but honestly the rug is killing me. All I need
is some artwork and an enormous television!

London Life, Part 1

August 31, 2010

A few pictures of my new apartment in London:

It’s a pretty basic one-bedroom (and that’s a small den in the 2nd picture.) One of these days I’ll go to Ikea and get a few things (a small desk and a set of drawers for the bedroom, and a nicer rug for the living room) but first things first: I need plates and silverware! Last night I ate pasta out of a pot with a wooden spoon. šŸ˜¦

Goodies and an Update

January 20, 2010

I’m the only person I know in the under-50 set who likes black licorice. Good & Plenty candies are called Goodies here which I think is cute and also reminds me of my dad.

in other news I’m probably about 1/3 of the way done with my latest blanket.

New Feature: Show Me Your FRIDGE!

November 25, 2009

I wanna know what’s in your fridge. Because you can see there isn’t much in mine!

Take a pic of your fridge, post it up, and let me know.

– half a bottle of Argentine vino
– lots of butter (that’s what’s in the blue bowl)
– beer aka brewskis
– soy milk
– baking soda for freshness!

New Furniture

May 24, 2009

After three months I finally have some furniture to call my own…

No TV? No Problem!

March 13, 2009

I decided against getting a tv here in my new place because, let’s face it, cable fees are ridiculously expensive here in Canada and my cellphone and internet bills are bad enough as it is. Unfortunately, that means missing out on the last season of Battlestar Galactica!

Thanks to a nifty tip I heard on CBC radio, I downloaded a program called Hot Spot Shield and now I can watch all kinds of “US-only” tv shows on my computer. It’s even better than cable because there are no commercials!Ā

Settling In

March 9, 2009

Finally have internet access. Finally have a mattress to sleep on. Don’t have any other furniture… but I still have my priorities straight.Ā
