We are all moved and settling in very nicely. A lot of the neighbors have come over to welcome us to the neighborhood, and the 96 year old woman who lives in the house next door baked us a batch of blueberry muffins on Saturday morning.
I seem to have found my own way of introducing myself to the neighborhood...like not realizing how many damn windows we now have, and unlike a condo, they are on every side of the house, so when, the day we moved in and I couldn't find the box that housed my pajamas and I proceeded to walk from room to room, rummaging through umpteen million boxes without clothes on...only to then realize all the blinds were up and everyone could see inside. That was the first night.
The second night as I was watching an episode of Tell Me You Love Me on HBO, which contains thought provoking dialogue, but also a shit ton of naked sex scenes...I realized that the wall opposite the tv has two windows facing the house next door, and both windows have blinds, which were conveniently all the way UP...so not only do the neighbors think I'm an exhibitionist, they also probably think I'm a crazy porn watching sex fiend who stays home on Friday nights with no life, in order to get my porn fix.
I won't even mention the widow in the bathroom...must remember to put that shade down before I sit on the toilet, I think the neighborhood has seen enough ass this week.
In a moment of complete brain funk I bought a whole watermelon a couple days before we moved. Yeah, so I had to move a friggin watermelon along with all my other shit. But you know what...this watermelon salad went real well with the muffins that the neighbor brought over on Saturday.
