why don't i just move to ballard and get it over with? seriously, both leff and i already work there. i'm always there in my spare time (i mean, hello! cupcake royale!) and it's where my primary library is located. also i've developed a love of lutefisk.
i'm kidding about the lutefisk.
so it should come as no surprise that yesterday i was looking for furniture in ballard. at restore to be precise. a lot of area high schools have been gutted for renovation lately so there were LOTS of home ec cabinets, trophy cases and library card catalogs in stock.
i was *drooling* over a science table and a faculty lounge mailbox that still had the teachers' names on it. (we have to buy that!) there were also blackboards in the yard area (honest to god blackboards!) and channel letters. (i want to buy the "f".) there was also this "vomitorium"
that is actually a sink from an embalming room. creepy, no?
yes, restore makes me drunk with happiness!
even though we, sadly, didn't purchase anything yesterday.
space oddity, however, is not making me happy. their hours are ridiculous and i'm always there when they're closed. i mean, is it wrong to assume that a store would be open at 1:45 in the afternoon? apparently so since they're open 2-6 tues-sat.
look. here it is being closed again.
don't fret. i took a photo of some cupcakes while i was waiting on my coffee
to cheer myself up.
it worked. (no, i didn't go back to space oddity. i didn't have enough time.)
so what have we learned? i love restore, space oddity is never open, cupcakes look pretty and leff and i still haven't solved the problem of the gaping area of crap that is our "entertainment area". also, we're about to learn that i hate the words "entertainment" and "area" placed next to each other. ick.
