my new-apartment shopping list.
. she complained about the lack of posts. no, honest.)1. toaster.
until i buy
one or open a new checking account or something, i'm going to go to the office if i want crunchy, brown bread. it's close, but going five blocks in my pjs on a sunday morning is kinda going to suck.2. trashcans.
until then, i guess i just flush everything and cross my fingers it goes down. ("c'moooon, milk carton.") damn, i hope my landlord isn't reading this. if so, kurt, i'm kidding! (there is
a chance; he mentioned that he liked my blog the second time we met. i immediately sped home to see what embarassment i had posted lately. apparently he googled me to make sure i wasn't a child molester or something.)3. silverware.
as aforementioned. until then, tgfs (thank god for sporks).4. one of those little things you mush the corner of the kitchen towel into to get it to stay.
ya know? weird stuff becomes desirable when you're in a new place, i guess.5. a chinese lucky cat.
every apartment needs one of those, right?6. a bedskirt.
who wants to SEE the bed frame before they stub their toe on it? takes the element of surprise right out of it. pain's still there, of course. woo.7. pots, pans.
i have neither. luckily, i have a debit card and no qualms about eating out.8. a couch.
my living room is empty save for a long table against the wall. not too homey. although it may not be so bad if i get a pillow for it. hmm!9. a tv stand.
i have a tv, but nothing to put it on but the floor. hrm. btw, i won't have cable -- for the first time in years! i've been eating and sleeping law & order
at ed's; like a reptile with the sun, i'm soaking up these life-giving (cathode) rays while i can.10. a litterbox.
unless, of course, i want to wake up with the kitten using me
instead. (see christmastime post about that one.)11. curtains.
god, spending $$ on this kinda thing is going to suck. welcome to sucky adulthood where you need CURTAINS, stacey!12. sheets that, ya know, match.
see #11. i have a lot of sheets, but am realizing a full set will entail a lime-green flat sheet, an ivory & magnolia floral fitted, and jersey-knit cobalt pillowcases. 13. a blender.
i read somewhere that every woman needs a blender. not sure why, but i don't wanna be left out. while i'm at it, i may as well get my little fish a bike. (btw, i named him PHINNAEUS, like julia roberts' baby. get it? phinn? fin? I AM SO GOOD.)
ok, that's all for now. back to work!!!
oh yeah -14. an ostrich egg.
the cool thing about me is that i'll probably get one of these before
i get a toaster. you gotta have your seven-year-old-trapped-in-a-27-year-old's-body priorities!
