Belated Glee-ness

My package came yesterday! I was so delighted that I’m sure my bones were shining visible quicksilver with happiness.


They wanted me to pay duty. I was downcast. I was defeated. Ï have no money”, I said to the man. He was kind, and told me where to go when I had some. “Only a few blocks away”, he said. I watched him as he took my parcel away. Back to the dark confinement of his van. I could practically hear it scream.

Today! There is money coming. Names and numbers on a rectangle of paper, coming to save me. My knight in scarlet armour to my rescue.

*dances dreamily*

What could be better than this?

Seeking Roomie

My partner, Bill, and I have the top floor of the house for rent. Bill is a musician and sound designer for television, film, and theatre, so be warned – we have a studio in the basement, complete with drum kit, which can become loud. As the space is the top floor, this has not been a problem, but just thought I should let you know. *grins* Also – his tap dance troup comes over sporadically to practice.

It’s $400/month, plus 1/3 utilities. There are two rooms, both with built in bookshelves, a large yard with giant cherry trees, (and parking pads, if you’ve a vehicle), and lots of storage. It works out that we share kitchen, bathroom, & livingroom, but each have a room to ourselves.

There are shops nearby, mostly chinese food stores, a Value Village, and a mostly organic supermarket 10 min walk away.We are on the Langara bus route and are 20 min max to downtown by transit.We have pets, (cat + chinchilla), but sadly cannot accept any more furry creatures into the home, unless they’re the sort what live in tiny cages.

Um… I can’t think of what else to say, so I guess that’s my blurb. If you have any question PLEASE feel free to ask.
