Good luck moving! Tell us about the new space!

So far I miss a garage and a dishwasher. I don't think I'll ever get over missing those.

But I love my space, I haven't seen either neighbor since I moved in, I'm a 15 minute drive to and from work (I woke up at 7;17 this morning (overslept), and I was at work by 7:50), the cats LOVE this place (mia loves the radiators, Rose loves galloping down the 23' long hallway. TGhey're thriving. This was a good move.

I would like for a TV commercial to include a rickroll. It's time to see this in regular, everyday visual media.

Ugh. Why can't it be FRIDAY yet?

Apparently the New Big Toy this Christmas is Crayola's airbrush kit that uses markers you already own, including fabric markers and washable markers. It was $35 online, then as it got more popular, retailers have raised the price to $55. It's sold out virtually everywhere, including the internet.

I found three at Michael's (arts and crafts store) yesterday for only $28 each (on sale!). I bought one for Nick (he wants to give one to his 5yo for Christmas), and one for a coworker who wanted one for her grandkid. I feel like I should have bought the other one and donated it to Toys for Tots.

Speakign of which, our local rock station sponsors "Toys for Ta Tas" each year. A Toys for Tots drive at an upscale strip club in Minneapolis. I hear they collect TONS of toys. I think it's pretty awesome.

I went on a toy benefit ride this weekend for a Mills Home (it's an orphanage). There were about 4000 bikes. We had motorcycle police escort and the police and fire departments shut down every on ramp to the highway and every intersection. It was about a 30 minute ride to the children's home, where they sang some songs for us.

There were probably a couple thousand of folks all along the way watching the bikes, waving, and some were holding signs saying god bless you.

It was great, and so well organized. I also liked that we got to go to the children's home and see the kids.

Let us know when we should all throw the housewarming party. A kegger, wine and fried chicken with all the sides.

That's how I used to do it back in the day...

Before I do that, I think I'll scrub the radiators with soapy water and a stiff brush. THey are clean ENOUGH but not enough to put my clean towel on. But I did put an old towel over the one in the bathroom and put Mia on it last night. SHe was resistant to being put on it, but give her a few seconds... "hey... this is warm... and Rose can't bug me..."
