snapshots of an idle mind

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?


*snoopy dance of joy*

*dance of ridiculous happiness*

*frisson of rent terror*



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.


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 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 :)


*crashes on couch*



  1. I love that quote.

    congrats on your new apartment!!!

  6. Yay congratulations! I love any excuse to have a party but I looooooovvvvvvve housewarming parties… not sure why, maybe because I had so many of them when I moved to Florida! Yaayyyyy I’m so happy for you! Wish I could help on the pricey equip but if you got one wish then hopefully the rest will follow.

  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 :)

    but i just queued up a few more clients i think so we’ll see how it goes!

  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.

  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!
