“I’ll be back… with a black throw pillow”
Spacebee and I spent a good portion of the weekend skipping merrily from furniture store to furniture store (and sometimes to a furniture store all the way in Milwaukee) to buy new furnishings for the new house.
So, after five stores and some money spent we have a new dining room set, a couple of chairs (see right), a bedroom set, and an outdoor dining set for the back patio. My current furniture is mostly a mishmash of IKEA stuff I bought as a bachelor in California, some hand-me-down stuff from our parents, and random stuff I’ve had forever.
I’m pretty excited for the move- we have the truck booked for May 28th, the furniture delivery scheduled for thre same week, and we started packing last weekend. The apartment is fairly a disaster area filled with full boxes, half-filled boxes, and bundles of empty boxes.
One question for the Whazzmaster.com Community (particularly those of a technical bent, but all opinions are welcome): what internet, cable, phone providers do y’all use and what is your opinion of them? I believe most of these companies are Frank-Norris’-depiction-of-The-Railroad-style ripoff artist monsters, so I turn to the experiences of My Pals here on whazzmaster.com. One caveat though: if you suggest that I use Charter Communications in any way then you’re not my friend anymore. They suck.
