I love garage sales. Today I picked up a bunch of Omni magazines for $1. I like to get cheap magazines because I like to use photo references for my artwork, so I have a very haphazard photo library, mostly consisting of ELLE and MAXIM, unfortunately. So if you have any magazines you want to get rid of, let me know!
I also got a bunch of used VHS video tapes for 25 cents each. Those old BASF cassettes are really sturdy. “They just don’t make ’em like they used to, son.”. I’ll tape over them all with cartoons etc, although I could watch old episodes of Law and Order if I want.
The neighbor next door (they were actually holding the garage sale with some other people from the building next door) called me dirty. How dare them? Well, judging by our deck, they’d be very right. I think she just said that to get back at me for dropping dirt on her head when I was moving stuff on the deck and she was directly underneath during the garage sale – haw haw – I should have changed the kitty litter at the same time just to add insult to insult.
I did a bunch of cleaning up today, in anticipation of Kirsten coming over tomorrow (hooray hooray hooray!). Mostly tidying and stuff that I would have gotten around to eventually anyway (so don’t get any ideas, KLM. Or…actually, you can get some if you’d like, I wouldn’t mind in the slightest. Yeah…on second thought: please get some ideas, if you know what I mean). Well, that’s enough for now…Jon should be here any second to pick me up for a BBQ at Kathryn’s in beautiful Langley.
