Pink Houses Are Cool

Well, we got the apartment we wanted. I’m so happy about that. It’s a bit more pricey than we had planned on, but there’s a lot of sunshine and an extra room for visitors who absolutely MUST visit us. I was going to post the listing but then figured putting our future address on the internet is probably not the best idea.

Things are working out, falling into place. A friend/coworker of Toby’s is taking our apartment here in DC. That also makes me happy; knowing someone kind and cool is taking over our lease is reassuring. Our landlord is superb. This brings me much ease.

Girl27 sent me the most thoughtful email. I wish to publicly thank her for doing this as I figure out a way to write her back without crying or something. She’s a sweet gal. She should write more.

  2. I am happy to hear you got the pink house…Now I am going to have to drive around and figure out which one it is!!!!
    That car pic you posted earlier is one of the many strange cars around SF. It seems like there are a lot of people with tons of free time to do stuff like that.

    i imagine the corospondence between the two of you would be quite beautiful, not to mention incredibly entertaining.
    it’d be like the bukowski/purdy letters… only writen by two hot babes instead of two dirty old drunk men.
    NYTimes best-seller list, look out.

  9. I was telling Toby the other night that this site has kept me a bit sane over the past few years. It’s funny how truly down I was when I found out we were moving. After a few days of having people point out the fact that I wasn’t and am not going to die by doing this, I felt ten times better.

    I guess what I’m saying is There is a bit what he says here that I can relate to.

  14. modest mouse eh? i just saw the video for ‘float on’ a couple days ago… really enjoyed it. is the rest of the album as good? i’ve been told it’s not as good as the first album but people always say ‘the first one is better’ about things just so you know how ‘cool’ they are cause they’ve be into a band ‘since the beginning’
