So, okay, hey! The condo is coming along great. I mean there's still SO much to do and I imagine a finer human being than I would have more accomplished by now, but I don't really care, because the whole thing just continues to make me happy! I even love just THINKING about all the shit I want to do eventually.

On Monday Kevin came over to help me move some furniture around: I wanted to pull a little switcheroo in the living room. Afterwards, we were looking at my bedroom suite (as I'm now calling it,) trying to picture it in the color I want to paint it, and Kevin remarked that, what with the loft bed and the bizzare wardrobe, the guest bedroom/office side of the thing seems like a kids' room. I agreed! I said I should put some Teenage Mutant Turtle Sheets on it or something. Then he said I could get some vintage sheets on eBay, like Nintendo or something. THIS SEEMS LIKE A GREAT IDEA.

So today I'm looking around eBay, and there's some stuff, not a lot, but some. Some Nintendo, some Smurfs, some Star Wars. Star Wars! Star Wars is still around, I think, maybe they are still making that classic set, with the blue background and whatnot. You know what I mean.

Okay, well, I don't think they are, but look what they ARE making! Holy shit! This is awesome, right? Look at Yoda! I'm totally hype about this. Oh dear god they make Hummer (the vehicle) sheet sets for kids. Why. Why. Why. OH MAN THERE ARE DINOSAURS! I mean this is starting to be less fiscally responsible and less nostalgic than scoring some vintage sheets from the 80s but suddenly I am very excited to shop for kids' sheets! Holy shit! I need to have a kid. Oh god no I don't but somebody I am best friends with needs to have a kid! Hurry up! This is fun! I'm going to see if I can find some Batman.

man. IKEA. awesome!

do you have pictures of all the stuff you've been doing to the place?

Yeah, I saw that after I posted! Pockets in the utility belt! That is awesome.

I don't have pictures, because, well . . . I haven't actually finished anything yet. The living room and kitchen are half-finished, the bathroom still needs a thorough scrub-down, and the bedroom is a mess because I'm just going to paint it soon anyway, so no need to get settled. But don't you worry, as soon as I make something pretty happen, I will be showing off like whoa.

overstock.com is having a huge bedding sale!

Awesome! Thank you for the heads-up! They don't have any cute kids' sets that I like, unfortunately. But I think I may have just found my living room drapes . . .

I am beginning to have thoughts about buying a wee house...it's scary, but you make it sound more exciting. I wish I could just pay someone to go through this whole process on my behalf--the paperwork, bargaining, etc. Yikes!

It is both scary AND exciting! I love it! It's great! I mean I'm in a place that's exactly the same size as my old apartment, but it just feels so much different. This is MINE. I can change the doorknobs if I think they're ugly. I can paint the place. If something goes wrong, it's my responsibility. I keep buying home repair books in an excited manner, and I don't even have anything to repair yet!

And dude, they do have such people, they are called realtors, and they will do it for free! ;)
