I got moved into my new place in Costa Mesa this week. Today we finished up moving some living room furniture that Doug’s mom graciously donated to the cause. I’m not quite sure what the cause is, but it apparently needs a couch, some chairs, a few end tables and a truck to move it. Actually, what the cause really needed was to not move everything up 3 stories, but thank god thats all in the past now. On the way out everything is going over the balcony into the parking lot, including the couch…especially the couch.
I went snowboarding for the first time since a disastrous attempt way back in Jr High on Friday. Much to my surprise, I can actually walk, and in fact all the previously mentioned moving took place the day after, so it couldn’t have been too bad, which it wasn’t. I feel like I actually got the hang of it a little, but we only went a half day. Thats not to say I’m not sore, and I was certainly wishing I had my skis. Surprisingly, I only took out one person. Luckily it was Paul, a guy from work, so there wasn’t that awkward “oh my god I’m so sorry” moment where you hope to god they aren’t hurt. Of course I was concerned that Paul wasn’t hurt, but at least I knew that when he got up he wasn’t going to fake a neck injury and sue the crap out of me.
I’m now officially on the hunt for a Wii. I’ve got a sort-of-lead on the GameStop that is about 2 blocks from my new place, so I’m gonna bug the hell out of them next week. Fun stuff.
Oh, I’ll take some pictures of the new place, but I’m not going to quote some time frame. They’ll get here sooner or later.
