last week i missed out on seeing aine! AAAAAARGH!! she was in town for the afternoon but i was waiting on packages so, no chicago diner, no hanging out with awesome people since a ton of new stuff was arriving.
soon. soon we will nosh and talk. i hate that i missed her though.
but about those packages. all week long things have been arriving (this is 10 years of pent up house furnishing, please keep that in mind.) I GOT A MIFFY LAMP LIKE THE ONES I FELL IN LOVE WITH IN AMSTERDAM!!!!!!!!!!!
got some new rugs! here is one of them that is in the back hallway!
AND MY NEW UMBRELLA THAT WAS UNAVAILABLE IN WASHINGTON STATE BECAUSE THE VENDOR WOULD NOT SHIP THERE I LOVE IT SO MUCH
kkkkkkkkkkkk, here's my new reading chair! i say mine, what i mean is that it is fujiko's. she curled up on it the day it arrived and basically has not left. sigh.
also two new bed frames arrived! here is peel testing out leff's! she approved with a "wraao".
i'll post a video of the apartment eventually. i know there are some of you who are interested in seeing it once it's completed. that's going to take a while (seriously, 10 YEARS OF PENT UP HOUSE FURNISHING TO DEAL WITH hahaha). until then, enjoy? the packing material that came with my shelves.
it's been pretty hot here so i haven't done a lot of exploring (altho "pokemon go" claims that i've walked over 20 miles since starting the game. *shrug*) so it's basically been the library,
the farmer's market, aldi and jewel, short trips on the l,
an aborted trip to the andersonville sidewalk sale (it felt like we were swimming instead of walking it was so humid. XD XD),
nearby pokestops to pick up some pokeballs,
and little saigon
cause i'm addicted to ba le.
look, i bought, like, 4 pounds of amish butter IT IS SO GOOD and i need baguettes as a vehicle for that. also thai iced coffee and/or tea and che bap.
THIS WEEK we might make it downtown. also possibility that i will do the 48th ward pokecrawl. i have done stranger things.
