it took me like.. two hours? to put it together even though it's a $14.99 sub-ikea shelf from target, because i spent like 1.75 hours sitting on the floor feeling sorry for myself because i hated putting it together so much. i also somehow lost a bag of the parts halfway through even though i never left the living room at any point, so christina and i kind of improvised and just used a drill to attach shit to other shit. i'm positive that it will never hold books, but it will hold clothes.
oh ! christina's work friend kathleen came over for awhile and she was super nice. she's learning how to knit so i gave her some yarn i'm never going to use (christina got me yarn for mittens for christmas buuuuuut i'd already secretly bought myself that yarn ! gift of the magi !) i wish i had work friends ! well, not really. i guess i'm satisified not having any coworkers i hate.
i rewarded both of us with iced coffees after that (food rewards and present rewards ! unhealthy !), because i guess i'm into iced coffee now
and a slice of stuffed vegetable pizza from the wurst house. i actually got two slices because one slice of pizza isn't enough for anyone over the age of 6 months old, but they turned out to be gigantic. like, i made it through 2/3 of one slice before giving up, and it took me so long to eat that 2/3 that i got bored while eating it. it also had green peppers in it, and green peppers are a disgusting thing that isn't food, but i swore to christina that i'd eat them without being a picky baby (turning over a new leaf for spring 2010 !) and i totally did it. it was gross though and was literally without exaggeration the worst thing that has ever happened to me.
after that, i got invited to a ten man group to kill the lich king and it was kind of a bust. we weren't really making progress and everyone was super grumpy and we gave up after 2 hours. the fight seems pretty cool to me, but it's frustrating to just keep wiping without getting any further.
soooooo tonight my two possible social options are a cat birthday party and a 25 man raid. it is the 2nd birthday of vinegar bukowski, mike's dopey cat who i actually found in the basement of the aforementioned wurst house. i went there to get something and i heard sad tiny mewing and looked down the stairs and there was a 4 week old kitten crying and desperately trying to climb the stairs.
i called jeanne and brian and they took him in and fed him every 3 hours and hung out with him, and i got to wipe his b-hole with a warm washcloth to make him poop ! then mike adopted him and he grew up into a totally austere and non-weird dude
so anyway, jeanne and mike are having a crazy person cat birthday party for him which will involve solemnly watching him eat salmon and probably freaking him out a lot. it sounds like a really good time but i'm unsure about navigating south philly/SEPTA from south philly at night. plus, i have a raid at 9:30 !
p.s. yes, this is my life
p.p.s. west philly is beautiful
that is not my house, but i'm obsessed with that house
