Moving adventure extrodinaire

Posted in Moving! with tags , , , , , , , , on August 3, 2011 by Running Around America

Our moving adventure got off to the best possible start. We(meaning the husband) lost the key to our pod container, the pod container we had only four hours with. The movers we scheduled couldn’t come until between four-thirty and five-thirty, so having a locked pod at three was pretty lame.

Fun fact: apparently you need a license for bolt cutters! So you can’t all just go BREAKING INTO PEOPLES POD CONTAINERS. EVEN IF THEY REALLY WANTED YOU TO.

The guy who delivered our pod was the nicest guy ever, he also thought we were nuts for losing the key, but he really tried to help. The helpful guy at the hardware store meant well, but he had us convinced that all we needed was a big screwdriver to act as a shimmy. IF IT WERE THAT EASY, WHAT WOULD EVEN BE THE POINT OF PADLOCKS?

A call to a locksmith, way too much money and an hour later, we were united with our stuff!

Now that we finally have a home, I can concentrate on drinking ice coffee outside at my local awesome coffee shop, and sweating at night because it is so hot out! Score!

Thoughts from Brooklyn Bridge

THE WALKING LANE IS TWO-WAY ALL OF YOU IMBECILES! JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO WALK WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN.

For all my bathing needs

Who knew this was in the middle of busy Brooklyn? I might as well be in Vermont!

Hi NY

Posted in Moving! on July 26, 2011 by Running Around America

Hi NY, as much as I love living out of a hotel and having housecleaning, I cant wait to move into my new apartment and would love to have my clothes back. I have been wearing the same four outfits since May. And I am not exaggerating.

Thanks.

*I will really miss the air conditioning though.

Bryant park, wahoo.

Despite the heat THAT IS ABSOLUTELY DESTINED TO KILL ME I made it to Bryant Park, where there is this pretend southern deck thing run by Southwest Airlines, and I am sitting in a mock Adirondack chair, having a lovely over-prices wine. What Southwest Airlines has to do with fun and relaxing, I have no idea. But if their flights are anything like this, sign me up. Save for the weird interpretive dancers. I think I can live without them. Unless they dance an over-priced wine to me. Then I’m all for it.

Exploring makes me sleepy

Dragging smalldog around Brooklyn trying to find the best coffee is tiring. It is even more tiring when smalldog stops every five seconds to eat something horrible off of the pavement.

Because of this, we are both exhausted and need a break from our tough lives.

PS- WHY MUST IT ALWAYS BE SO HOT? I think I have developed a special aversion to heat. I am a delicate little tulip.
