It’s a long story, but this month I’ll be moving to the next door apartment. This is weird and also convenient. So now I’ve got six months of rental time to find a permanent condo or something, hopefully.
Things noticed so far during the move
Too many goddamned paintings
The paint-catcher canvas what saved me from many rental fees and fines
Note: In case you’re not familiar with internet lingo, ‘FTW’ means ‘For The Win’.
And win they did! After 8 long long years, America may finally start rebuilding in a good way. Obama and Biden is just what we need right now. This is the first time I’ve actually been excited about who I’ve voted for and to whom I’ve donated.
These cat toys from my sister have been an absolute hit with my cats as they contain Teh Catnip, a should-be-controlled substance that makes cats go absolutely bonkers. Please note the candy corn, skull, and jack-o-lantern instances.
Here’s a sweet panorama of highway 36 heading into Boulder, CO. As you scroll to the right, you will notice how sloppy I am when it comes to iPhone photography and half-assed image stitching. But the mountains should make up for it.
My cats were rescued on Thursday (June 19, 2008). I’ve been displaced for 10 days now, and I’ll be moving back to the apartment complex I left before moving downtown (but not the same unit) on a month-to-month lease until I can (hopefully) go back to my downtown digs.
Here are photos of my 3 cats in my hotel room just after Angie T and I picked them up from the animal rescue center at Kirkwood Community College:
Thanks to Angie T of Violet Island fame for the photos!
Since I’ve just moved to the outskirts of downtown Cedar Rapids, Iowa, I was evacuated from my apartment early Wednesday morning (June 11, 2008) because of record-level flooding. I’m currently staying in a hotel on higher ground.
I hope to rescue my 3 cats tomorrow and bring them to the hotel with me.
If I cannot go back to live in my apartment by this Thursday (June 19, 2008), my cats may go to Iowa City, and I will hopefully be staying at a coworker’s house, mm-hmmm.
