It is 9:52 p.m., and Marvin Gardens and I are staying up until midnight because there is a meteor shower tonight.
I have a history of poor luck with meteor showers. I am always picking at my cuticle or looking at my moles or pressing on my distended abdomen or something every time a star shoots by. Everyone says, "There was one!" and I swear bitterly and try to look in the sky, until the siren song of my cuticles calls to me again.
So, we are pretty darn unpacked. Thanks to all that is holy and merciful, I had no more bug encounters when I moved the boxes from that back room, so the dishes are put away, the spices are resting comfortably above the stove, the pots and pans are potting and panning and there is really no excuse left to go out to eat, even to Sonic.
As you can see, I ordered the biggest drink possible there, knowing my golden Sonic days are coming to a close. (Who loves herself?)
I think we almost broke even when it came to expenses for this move. It cost $3500 for the moving truck, and our $3200 LA security deposit was returned to us in total. We sold our washer and dryer back in LA, and our new set didn't cost THAT much more than we sold the old ones for.
A couple people gave us gift certificates to various stores, so necessary items like brooms and cleaning supplies didn't cost us anything. I have to still add up how much we have, but I know it is at least $10,000 in savings, still.
As I have said already, it'll be pretty dang easy not to spend in this town. I doubt I'm gonna get all into buying a John Deere...whatever it is John Deere sells. Do they sell deer? Do they sell toilets for the deer? Is John Deere some sort of pimp for deer prostitutes? No, wait. A john is the client.
I know they sell ironic trucker hats. Is that it? Please advise.
By the way, the other day a woman here actually used the phrase "I declare" in a sentence. I thought that was a myth. It's like an agent saying "ciao" or something. Anyway, she was cute as pie and I declare we had a nice talk.
Okay, I am gonna make coffee or something so I do not sleep through the stars and the shooting and such.
