Woke up late

March 14, 2007 - Categories: life

I still have such a blogging backlog. Waah!

Work first.

Woke up to find that I’d missed a telecon for LG. Good thing there’s
an alternate telecon scheduled tomorrow. I love how my life works,
although I really should figure out how to wake up earlier (or
actually, how to stay awake)…

My very own place!

I have been unforgivably late with thank-yous to the totally totally
totally totally awesome crew who helped me get my new place off the
ground…

Wayne and Jess helped me grab a coffee table and a few other
essentials from Ikea. We bought fruits and bagel sandwich ingredients
at Dominion, then met up with Quinn. Quinn and Jess got to work
assembling my drawers while Wayne helped me move the rest of my stuff.
He had the *brilliant* idea of using my skateboard as a dolly, and he
had *so* much fun banking during turns! (See, I *knew* there was a
reason why my intuition told me to get a skateboard instead of a bike
or inline skates…) Von joined us and helped move stuff. Gabriel
turned up with two cartons of juice. Jed turned up to help assemble
things, too. Simon dropped by with speakers and pizza, and he washed
my windows.

Wow.

Really. Wow.

We all enjoyed a beautiful sunset. I hope it’s the first of many at my
new place! I’m looking forward to hosting afternoon tea every Sunday.
I plan to be At Home from 3:00 to 6:00… Do drop by!
