okay kids, get ready…

getcher dancing shoes and your silly hats and those things you blow into that make a raucous noise…

do your warm up stretches…

okay ready?

I GOT MY APARTMENT!!!!

*snoopy dance of joy*

*dance of ridiculous happiness*

*frisson of rent terror*

*snoopyDANCING!!!*

.

me neighbour and i actually jumped up and down like teenagers when the message played out through my apartment.

.

i really don’t have anything else to say but that, i just know that y’all are wanting to know that

.

i do have a request, regardless of whether you think you know who i’m talking about or not please fail to be specific, it’s a privacy thing… i’ve consented to be out in the world but the people in my life have not.

once you start commenting on this blog or start a blog of your own it’s different.

.

i liked this quote a lot… enough to rewind it thrice and write it down:

“…well i have never been one to believe that there’s gonna be some knight in shining armour, he pulls up into my driveway and sweeps me off my feet but, you know, i really, i really never thought that it was gonna be this hard either.”

kitty – brothers and sisters

.

i have spent hours on the net looking for a decent price on a balanced body used reformer and the closest i can come is one for 1700 that’s TWENTY YEARS OLD! [and in california of course]

i can find demo models for around 3400usd but the closest one is in calgary on february third and i would still have to get it here (might be cheaper though since i won’t have to pay duty and they have to pack it for shipping anyway…)

this is HARD!

in case you’re wondering? the one i want new, and unshipped, is 3495usd (3695 if i get the footbar i want) and that’s not even counting the SHIPPING on a ten foot long block of wood and metal.

fuck.

who knew these would be so hard to find…

anyone who has any suggestions for finding the stuff? please pass it on.

[mom you’re kind of an expert… here’s the site (i want the extra long one) and the info, see if you find anything good:

balanced body reformer

.

i get to have my first ever mine all mine housewarming party. that and the beautiful view for my kitties is making me really happy.

that and the gorgeous space *g*

don’t even get me started on how nice it will be to have an actual apartment with an ACTUAL EAT-IN KITCHEN!!!

AND WINDOWS!

and it’s NOT in a BASEMENT!

*further snoopydancing*

.

i need a couple of new clients to swing this, better get hustling.

.

i still have nothing to say but y’all are updated :)

  10. lovemonkey: i’m too busy stressing out about equipment to really dance but don’t think for a second that i’m not hella excited!
    .

    jmai: thanks darlin’

    i love housewarming parties too, i think it’s partly because it’s really warming to do it… like they call it that for a reason right? you fill your space with the energy of you and your friends and sort of warm it for yourself…

    i’m hoping i’m hoping :)
    .

    hunee: thanks!!

    where are you blogging these days?

    my current address works until february 28th but even after i’ll set up forwarding so really it’s all good!
    .

    dzer: thanks!

    did you really? with ropes and pulleys and sliders and everything?
    .

    nat: happy AND terrified :)

  11. Actually not blogging at all. Life has sort of had me in the wind lately and I really been too busy and too tired to document it all… I do miss you guess tho and I was glad to read that Othercat is getting better! And you sound like you have been doing wonderfully well except the broken bones but even that worked out for you!! I might be getting back to normal life soon (I hope) but I am still alive and healthy. :) ((hug)) I’ll try to get that thing out this weekend :)

  12. Geez, I am a nerd. When I read that you were looking for a balanced body used reformer I thought you had gotten creative for a personal ad and got some existentialist weirdoes applying to you from all over North America.

    Congrats on the new digs. I wish I could attend that housewarming party.

    Cheers,

  13. hunee: that explains a lot, i’ve been wondering where you fell off to. blogland will be here when you get back you know :)

    it turns out my bone isn’t broken but my ankle is fucked. it’s an excuse to paint my nails and be girly for a bit i guess.

    yay for normal life!
    .

    pyr: okay now that’s funny. is it less fun now that you know what it is?

    well you would be welcome if you arrived!
