To do list

My once long to do list is getting shorter and the remaining items are quaking in fear. Unfortunately getting a job is not among the threatened items, as I was told yet again by my favorite board shop in Bend "We need to hire someone, but it's really busy so we'll get back to you in a few days." Maybe I'm just not business-savvy enough, but it would seem to me that hiring new people before it gets even busier would be the way to go. I'm not too worried though, as the lack of a job will allow me to possibly make a trip to Eugene.

On a better note, I got moved in.The bachelor pad is officially open for business. No, Chris, I have no plants, so that status is fully justified. As you can see, there is a lot of space, so if any of you non-random-strangers reading my blog care to drop by I can provide a patch of floor to sleep on.

Bonuses of the new place
1. sliding glass door leading to a small deck.
2. my own bathroom (the tub was so big I felt compelled to include a picture of it)
3. a dog named Charlie

Downsides of the new place
1. the dog named Charlie has made a habit of coming into my room to stare at me. For some reason I can't relax or sit down when she is doing that (never mind that I have no chairs...I have the ultimate piece of furniture/maritime safety device - an inflatable bed).
2. carpet in the bathroom - honestly, who ever thought carpet in a bathroom was a good idea. It is like having a giant sponge on your floor.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the non-drunken, blog version of my thoughts on voting.

Nice place! It reminds me of your old place here, with the little outdoor patio. Carpet in the bathroom is almost as weird as the hostel I once stayed at in Rome where they had the toilet in the shoebox-sized shower stall. WEIRD.

Wow, reminds me of my summer living in Ithaca...I had to get rid of the air mattress after my cats decided to repeatedly use it as a litter box...I can't still baffles me.

If you ever feel the need for a little green, the bamboo plant is alive and well.

You'll have to decide whether or not you really want to get rid of the FULL bachelor pad status or not... decisions, decisions.

I'm jealous of your bathtub.

Not so jealous of the air mattress. :)

I might have to take you up on the plant E. I had a nice sense of satisfaction that another life-form was dependent on me for survival...even though it was infected with plant mites.
