clean up for the alex (DO NOT LOOK AT THIS POST ALEX)

i kept saying i'd do it and i pick the least opportune time to decide to actually take and post pictures of my apartment i have resided in since july with birthday girl becky beckyg and ginny treefort. if your name is alex gardenhead do not look at this post, since i cleaned up for you! also, tonight i hooked up our answering machine and ginny and i worked hard and recorded a message. it is awesome. if you have our home phone number, you really have to call and listen/leave a msg. we are the coolest.








photos of my apartment (a long time coming)

what i looked like when the clean sweep was over; one dirty leigh


ps. i am most proud of the kitchen since pretty much i picked out every piece of furniture and chose the colors we painted. actually, i did that for the living room and bathroom too. why didn't i go to school for interior design? i'll never know. i suppose there is still time.

Current Mood: crazy
Current Music: heater hum + my body realizing it is 2:17am.

This is unrelated to your post (though nice apartment anyways) but I had a dream last night that I went to a Radiohead show at a club and no one was there so I was right up front and talking to Thom and he kept asking me for requests. It was awesome. I talked him into playing "I Promise" and then I kept trying to text message you to tell you about it. Huge dork dream but very amusing.

i have a lil step ladder (3 steps) but even on that step ladder i'm not tall enough to reach the ceiling. :-/ Hmmm... I think maybe Janie has a ladder. Maybe. I want to paint my bedroom next week (since I'm *NOT* going to London) but uh... need to be able to reach to the ceiling.

you can probably use our stepladder (that is like a 5 or 6 step, i think). that i can definitely get to you in my car. i just have to check with ginny to see if she needs it for anything (since it's hers).

You can take it, and you don't even need to bake me anything. Although, I won't turn away brownies.

HOORAH THE KITCHEN!

I'm glad you got everything done, especially with painting (finally). When was that done? It's a good feeling to get things done. Especially good to know that you live in such an amazing place! I'm so jealous of that kitchen table & chairs (because colorful things are amazing to me).

So much IKEA! We have the same sofa (mine's black though) and the same rack in the kitchen (ours acts as a boozeholder; eff pots and pans!) I needs to get me a couple of those bookcases for my cd's.

I love the colors, Leigh. It feels so warm and comfortable. And full of music. EVERYTHING IS MUSIC!

I <3 IKEA!

The baker's rack in the kitchen may or may not be IKEA. I bought it off some ppl on Craigslist, so I don't know. They didn't advertise it as being an IKEA baker's rack, but it could be? BILLY bookcase is awesome. I am going to buy the skinny one to put in between the two for all of my soundtracks/compilations. I also like (as you can see) mixing and matching the metallic grey shelf colors with the white shelves. :)

MICHAEL, SERIOUSLY, please come visit me sometime! Flights are SUPER CHEAP and simply put, WE WILL GET ALONG FAMOUSLY! PULP SINGALONGS ON THE DANCEFLOOR!

our lease had a rider attached to it that specifically said we could not paint the apt, but i had spoken with them before about painting and we agreed that we would paint as long as we paint it back to the off white before moving out. i think i might paint my bedroom soon: pink and grey. it looks really good in my mind. we'll see. i live in wicker park/uk village (whathaveyou), one block east of damen & division.
