University surplus sale a month ago is now in my possession. And I am giddy with happiness. Was it 75 bucks? Yes. Is that a lot of money for me in my poor semi-graduate college state? You bet. Was it an incredible deal because anywhere on the internet they tell you if you can find one of these for anything less than $500 it's a steal? Of course it was. The guys at the warehouse said that this was one of the heaviest things they'd ever moved, so Braeden and our friend Jared (little Jared of the truck, not Jarrod of the strangely spelled name) were slightly intimidated at the prospect of trying to move it from the truck into the Beach Room (so named for the mysterious sand that coated—and continues to persist in dusting—the floor when I moved in in August). However, we are geniuses and figured that if we removed all those drawers first it would be much lighter and easier to handle. We were right. And Jared and Braeden are champs.
Greendale Human Bean from Community to wear so that I can really be one of the cool kids: terrifying.
Tonight we are going to one of Braeden's work parties. We are making a fruit salad and planning to leave around 8 so Braeden can work on his final papers for his classes and I can finish my Sunday School lesson. We are officially old people.
