So I’m sitting here on Keely’s couch in California in her new apartment.
She went to Soul Cycle to do a spin class but I worked out this morning so it seemed like a great time to write a blog post. I can’t even believe that I used to write a post every day. Now I barely write one a week.
Whenever I’m in California I lose all sense of time and days. For example, today is Sunday and it’s Valentine’s Day but since it’s freezing at home and every day is perfect around here it sort of feels like Groundhog Day each and every day.
I flew out here last Wednesday and it seems like forever ago. By the way, I flew out here to help Keely move and set up her new apartment and visit of course. The move was last Thursday and it couldn’t have gone better. The movers were helpful and awesome and by the afternoon all the stuff was in the new place and it was basically GO TIME.
For me, a pretty compulsive person, that meant tearing open the boxes and starting the process of unpacking. I had all Keely’s clothes and stuff put in her bedroom and avoided all that so it was all about organizing all the stuff that had been ordered and putting the bookshelves and things like that back together.
You may remember that I ordered a bunch of shit and sent it all to the wrong address. Fortunately, the triage process (which is basically the story of my life … Accessing the problems and dealing with the worst problem first) had worked out and things were now being delivered to her new place.
Before Keely even got home from work things were in their proper places and it already looked pretty homey. Two days later, 3 Target trips and ATT hooking up the TV and we were done. We hung her paintings and voila: beautiful apartment.
We did still manage to have many meals out as well and I’ve met a bunch of Keely’s friend and I finally got to see the Sleepy Hollow writers room!
People are fucking crazy drivers around here.
Also a LOT of people are TERRIBLE drivers around here.
Apparently weaving in and out of traffic is not only allowed but ENCOURAGED!
15 minutes to me and 15 minutes to people in California are NOT THE SAME!
Don’t even get me started on parking lots.
Drivers will hold up massive amounts of cars just to wait for someone to thing about backing out of a parking space. We could have written a sitcom in the World Market parking lot.
I love The Container Store
Keely does not
… Love it that is. She wanted to leave
I just wanted to “contain all the things”
This weekend was the LA Marathon
It was today actually
Outside of my hotel
I watched it
Some of it, Not all of it.
The front runners were crazy fast
It was also the marathon Olympic Trials
I can’t run fast
… Or far
There were lots of people running
Just not me
They did have a cool program that I saw to encourage at risk kids to run the marathon
It was called “Students Run LA or SRLA”
I Googled it.
Now we’re gonna bake cookies
To thank TONY
THe guy who has the drill and has been helping hang stuff
So that’s basically it
Oh, I’m going to Deadpool later
Hope it’s good
