aquatic, the life

i don't want to jump the gun so i won't!

i took a cab home so i could drop stuff off at home and then i went to look at a place. it was lovely. i will say more about it later, but as my subject says i refuse to jump the gun. after coming back from looking at the place, i met paul o. at sultan's to quickly eat dinner and then i, leigh (yes you are reading the right journal) went to a BASEBALL game: chicago white sox vs. baltimore orioles @ us cellular/pepsicola/miller light etc. stadium with paul o. we met up with paul b. & friends, adam whoisadam, jennifer, and gretchen. it was good times! i drank a wee hot chocolate and everyone else consumed dollar hot dogs. i mostly just gabbed with gretchen. my favorite feature of the game was the kiss cam, in which the camera randomly selects people sitting together to kiss and stays on them until they realize that indeed the camera is watching them and that they must liplock. it's so ridiculous! i seriously probably actually watched about 5 minutes of the game throughout the hour or so we were there. we left right before the 9th inning because i wanted to beat the herds to the el. i got home around 10ish, came back and talked with ginny and tasha i_lack awhile, borrowed tasha's simcard to get the numbers off my old phone that weren't transfered (you can only store 250 numbers on a sim card and i have more than that). i recommend NEVER CHANGING PHONES EVER if you have more than 250 numbers in your phone because then you have to go through one by one with your new phone next to your old phone and figure out which ones were not transfered. much fun! then we watched THE O.C., which blew my mind away. we got tasha hooked on it! seriously, OMFG. when this season is over next thursday maybe i can finally watch the gazillion movies i have and work on ripping all my cds over to my hard drive. yeesh. tonight i had plans to see a real estate agent, but now i may have to call and cancel. tomorrow paul o., liz s., and adam s. have put together a belated surprise for my birthday and i am really clueless. admittedly, i tried to log into paul's email address, but had changed the password, so i couldn't even TRY to snoop. :/ i am clueless and he wouldn't even answer any of my questions. i do know that whatever it is, i have to be free from noon 'til whenever. WEIRDED OUT!

you have really got to see this: necoro, an animatronic cat (thanks chris).

i can jump the gun now!

BIG NEWS: i am moving june 15th to augusta & hermitage with dan immediatetongue and danelle chemicalkisses. that's what i was holding my breath about last night. i met the real estate agent at the place at 5:30 last night. she showed me the place. within the first minute, i asked "where do i sign?". let me tell yuo, this place is completely unfinished right now; as in there is a circle in the floor in the bathroom where the toilet will go, but this place had this air of comfort that i really need in an apartment shared between 3 ppl. there are two entrances; one on the augusta side and then another around on the hermitage side. the living space and the kitchen are very good sized and the bedrooms are astronomically huge compared to most everyone that i know and especially in the wicker park area. all 3 bedrooms have nice, big closets and there are (well, will be) TWO, yes two, bathrooms. both of the two bigger bedrooms have skylights. yes, skylights. this place is gorgeous. i can't believe this wasn't the first thing i wrote when talking about this space, but here are two important words: SPIRAL STAIRCASE, from the main floor up to what will be danelle and my rooms. i am going to be paying more than i had originally thought i would, but honestly, i think it will be worth every dime. my sanity is completely worth it. big bedroom. lots of space for crafting. actually there is a huge closet that we could make the craft closet! anyways, lease is signed by both lessee and lessor, so i am golden. june 15th, here i come. in the mean time, i've got to JUMP on converting cds to mp3s and selling whatever i can to make money.

i was tagged by bedtimes drummer steve hotfreaks to do this film meme:Collapse )
