Moving Furniture Around

This weekend, Olaiya moved in. Our plans to find a perfect little 1 or 2 bedroom place in Capitol Hill foundered. Nothing seemed perfect enough during our brief search. Instead, we've embarked on a foolhardy plan to share my old studio apartment... making it OUR studio. So now it's occupied by me, Olaiya and her kitty Lulu. Or LulaBell, or LulaMullah, or Wooly Lully, or Bebop-a-Lula, or LouLou Grant, or Loopa-do, or whatever silly name I feel like calling her.

To accomplish this, we also needed to go blow $800 at IKEA. We expect to recoup this easily since we now only pay $300 a month for rent. Storage solutions! We've found 'em. And many an item found its way to the freebox or the dumpster. We're armed with a new bed, a new kitchen table and chairs, super comfy new chair for O to lounge out on, new picture frames for classier wall hangings, and a new bathside table (very important for drinking booze while bathing or playing Boggle while pooping.) There are new color themes to behold, bold new furniture arrangements and a sweet kitty cat lurking around. I still have to figure out how to connect the DVD player to the television (located on the opposite side of the room,) but once I do, expect to be invited over for dinner and a movie. Unless we don't like you. Then you can just forget it. And quit reading my blog too.

Ooh, I can't wait to see your new arrangement! My bedroom as a kid was about 1/3 smaller than the size of the main room of your place and I was able to do wonders with re-arranging every month. Even with bunk beds! So, I know that amazing things can happen with a litte creativity!

And, happy new co-habitation! A sweetie and a kitty can sure make a place feel warm and cozy.

Ah, you whippersnappers. Back in the day, I shared a studio with my cat, the girlfriend who gave me the cat, her dog, our friend, and her boyfriend. And we didn't have none of those DVD boxes or fancy wall hangings neither - just an AM radio and a Raquel Welch poster. And nobody played Boggle because words hadn't been invented yet. And college classes were three hours long. In pitch dark rooms.

Anyway, have fun!

Funny parallel universe in Ireland dictates that my sweety and I will end up bunking up in his current place instead of trying to find a place that fits us both because we have unsuccessfully bought several houses.

But when it comes down to it, if you really like each other you don't step on one another's toes in a space that's too small, do you? You just learn to dance around each other creatively.

Congrats, you three!

It's okay Jimmimoose. You're invited over for movies and dinner whenever you're in Seattle. Unless you're off with your gun-toting, faux war veteran buddies... in which case, forget it. We don't need any of those types in our apartment.

Where did you put the litter box?

I think we need pitchers.
