Host With The Most
I'm a little disappointed that I wasn't able to get my new furniture moved in beforehand. I scored an amazing deal on a sofa and love seat off of Craigslist. A rich family in South Salem purchased a $3,600 living room set not too long ago and it just so happens their son is allergic to down, so they decided to sell the set dirt cheap: $600. I looked at the pictures and I couldn't believe they were really selling them for so little, so I emailed the guy and low-balled him to 550, lol. Yesterday I was supposed to meet him at noon with the money, but I ran into a problem- my bank ATM would only allow me to get 500 bucks out. After that I was denied withdraws from every bank ATM. So I showed up at his house and explained the situation. He was really nice about it and let me put a cash deposit down (with a written receipt) and is holding it until Monday. I'll take new pictures of my place once I get the new furniture moved in.
It's almost 1 o'clock and my friend will be here in 45 minutes. I feel like I should make kool-aid or something. Is that what you'd do? Here's what my fridge currently looks like:I'm thinking I should probably make some juice. I have beer in there, but she doesn't even drink. Now hang on, I already know what you're thinking and calm down, contrary to popular belief I can hang out with sober people. Everything's going to be fine, calm down.
Alright I'm back, I didn't make the juice because I don't have any, lol. Sheesh, I suddenly realize that I have nothing to offer her when she gets here. My kitchen has 'single dude lives here' written all over it. I could have planned that a little better, sigh. I went over to my co-worker's house last night and watched the UFC fight. That was fucking awesome! So many good fights, and the main event went exactly as I thought it would: Rich Franklin beat the hell out of Chuck Liddell, knocked his ass out cold... and he did it all with a broken arm! I'm serious, early in the fight he blocked a kick from Liddell and the impact fractured his arm. In an interview afterwards he said he could hear the bones clicking together, and yet he powered through it and won the fight. I am amazed at what the human body can endure, it's crazy.
Ok, I should stop writing and get ready for my friend. Oh and by-the-way, did I mention I started dating again? Oh man, talk about being out of practice! I have no idea what I'm doing, so wish me luck on that part of my life too. Adios amigos!
