So, we went to view our first house to rent yesterday...ohmy, how can some people live like animals? I was stunned - the place was just piles of garbage, clothes and shockingly expensive music equipment. Also a dirty dish, cutlery and glass were perched outside the bathroom door...with mould, ewwww! It was disgusting, outside was pretty rundown too and the location wasn't great...but it was the mess that really sealed it for us. Gross. The letting agency have rang twice (!) since to ask if we're interested and if not, why not? WHY DO YOU THINK!?
We've got another viewing on Monday for the place we really like so fingers crossed it'll be just as nice as pictured and everything will go ubersmoothly (please, please, please let it go ubersmoothly...). I can't wait to get out of here. Jojo is very supportive of this action which helps a lot...I'm a little afraid of getting too dependant on her support though. I don't really think about what Jojo would say/do in response to my actions but whenever I'm in therapy with her I worry a whole fucking lot about exactly that. Sigh.
Lots of great stuff has happened lately though! I've got a 'guy' at the coffee place I frequent who knows my order off my heart and makes it just right. I downloaded some sweet psychadelic Korean music from way back and been walking around listening to that and the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. Bear has been teaching me patience and tactical thinking through the medium of...uh, Yu-Gi-Oh! card games. Don't laugh, it's actually pretty cool on the tactical level though cards like Mystic Tomato and Rescue Cat coupled with the ocassional 'I'm sure that's ripped off from Deviantart...' do make me sad. I still haven't quite grasped the summoning rules and playing traps at the right time but...I have beaten Bear a few times which is the important thing, right?
The Kurosagi Corspe Delivery Service turned out to be as delightful as I expected, definitely don't mind investing in more of the series when I have the money to. It combines horror, the undead and murder mysteries! How could I not love it? I wasn't very taken with the artwork at the start but I've gotten used to it. The stories are fast-paced, memorable and the storyarc easy to grasp despite me rudely dropping in on volume 7. I loved the dark humour too. Oh, undead Otaku, what won't you do to fulfill your twisted fantasies~?
I've found a website selling jersey very cheap and two great tutorials for knockoff American Apparel stuff (the Le Sac dress and Circle Scarf) which I think may form part of my summer wardrobe - I'm hoping to make two or three of each, pack some t-shirts, underwear and a belt or two for Download if we go...though if we get this house, we could possibly spend the weekend sitting in our garden listening to Primus and Rammstein instead, haha.
