sorry, i've been away this week. i've been stressing over my apartment hunt and have also been wondering about whether to continue with this blog given that i have a new creative idea that involves a lot of drawing and writing that's completely outside of blog-land... that being said, abandoned blogs make me sad so i will continue to post from time to time, but the days of daily postings of yore are gone, at least for now. click here for more on the sadness that are abandoned blogs... *sniff*
given that all i'm thinking about is housing these days i thought i'd post on that today.
first of all, i need to shout out a resounding "they don't make 'em like they used to!" in regards to housing. earlier this week i checked out a condo for lease in my price range. the finishes were nice (drool-inducing even) but after i left and trekked back home i noticed i was feeling anxious... i then realized that it was occurring to me that to live in that condo with the drool-inducing finishes i would need to get rid of everything i own. my russell spanner set would be the first casualty and sorry, but i'm not having that. nothing comes between me and my spanner set (this post testifies to that)! granite countertops and ensuite laundry, nice try, but there's no competing with a nostalgist!
now for some deliciously tacky pictures of housing from "my era:"
