Aversion Therapy

Finally a mover who returns calls! Whooppee! We've arranged to get the stuff we're sending to Vancouver moved, even though it will have to live with Ian for a week before the mover picks it up.

The landlord, bless him, has agreed (for a price) to get the carpets cleaned after we are out, so I don't have to worry with that. He's a funny guy, early 40s, very dapper and with Bollywood good looks. He seems to have realized that the suite is in high demand, and between yesterday and today I noted that the price he's quoting lookers has gone up by $100.00 a month. He's now jumped it $300 a month more than we have paid the past year. I'm glad we're not staying!

Tony and I patted the wolves down by hanging the full-length mirror and installing the light above the sink, so we are down to a few jobs inside. We might have done a couple more things, but we couldn't figure out how to get the grinder off the drill.

The major job of the day will be to buy carpet. I went to the only carpet shop in this end of town and all they carry are samples. I have no time left to order stuff and wait for it. Guess Ian and I will have to go to the big carpet warehouse all the way across town tonight. My longing for material goods is rapidly diminishing through the aversion therapy called shopping.

we are hooked up to the internet and typing a tat-tat-tatting on the keyboard and flushing through email to get to the good stuff.

I have had a good read of your blog and feel somewhat more connected to what you and that dude you live with have been up to.
