|| i'm missing some people
gah, i just noticed the ugly typo in my last entry. alison, you're supposed to call me out on crap like that. i'm leaving it, for memory's sake.
i'm pretty much all settled in at the new place. one day i'll take some pictures and then another day, i'll post them. jeshua, justin, and brian live here too. there was a guy named juan that lived in the downstairs apartment, but he disappeared a couple weeks ago. last we saw of him, he was driving away in his "friend's" car while wearing gardening gloves. his laptop and ipod are sitting on his bed, as well as about 10 pairs of gucci shoes- or some fancy name brand. where is he now? you can use your logic skills here.
so yes, all the boys sleep upstairs and they have two bathrooms between them. i'm on the main floor with my bathroom, the living room, dining room, and kitchen. downstairs, there are two rooms, a bathroom, and a mini kitchen. off of that, is the garage, where jeshua and i transformed into the art room. i've got my color swatch boards and he's got his giant money cross. down the street, there is a police precinct, a general store (which i am told never to go there alone), and a vacant building with some things painted on the side of it. soon, that will be an art studio. i'm hoping it'll be an art gallery too, so maybe jeshua and i can hang some of our stuff in it.
bj, the homeless man that lives in the house across the street, comes over a few times a week. he washes cars and he washed mine the other day. he only charged me $4, but since it was really dirty, i gave him $6. also, justin, jeshua, and i skateboarded* to the store the other night and a man walked out of the bushes, carrying a piping hot papa john's pizza. he offered it to us for $3. i asked to see the pizza. when he opened the box, sure enough, it was authentic. i told him i didn't care for those topping and he said he'd bring me a cheese pizza the next night. he didn't follow through, but that's probably a good thing. still, a papa john's pizza for $3 is a great deal, any way you slice it.
i've mostly been working all day, only to come home to work on art stuff until 1 or 2 in the morning. i've gotten a couple of big orders this last week. someone actually bought a painting for $250. that's ridiculous.
a few months ago, buckley lost 75% of the fur on his tail and the fur behind his arms. come to find out, you're not supposed to feed inside squirrels acorns, peanuts, and dried corn because they don't get enough vitamin D to metabolize it correctly. he was in the beginning stages of MBD (metabolic bone disease). i changed his diet completely and got a UV lamp. none of that seemed to help at first, but a couple weeks ago, he grew back all the hair behind his arms and three days ago, i noticed tiny hairs all over his tail. there's more every day. this makes me so happy i could cry. i love that little guy.
uhm, what else can i write about? hot air balloons and rainbows are still at the top of the list, green is still great, and mini ninjas are too.
*they rode the skateboards, and i carried one for protection.
