I love it when things come together. It looks like this is going to be one very smooth transition from home to school and points beyond. I just have to worry about spending my life's savings at IKEA. There is nothing more tempting than a store that has so many little cool things for cheap - and nothing more evil than a store that makes you say "no, I don't need a $75 lamp today, I'll just browse" and then "my god, did I just buy $100 worth of gadgets" once you get to the register. Oh well, such is life I suppose.

Another lovely little link for all of the toolbelt toting tomboy's out there. This page is full of handy tips and girl sized tools for those of us who like to be handy around the house. I wonder if they do tool parties in Canada? Sure would knock a little fire out of that Candle Party trend.

So I officially hate my bank. They had the audacity to change my service fees, and now allovasudden I can't have my student discount because it can't be applied to these new account structures. BASTARDS. If I didn't have a really great feature where I don't actually wait for cheques to clear (the money's there if I say it is) I'd go shopping for a new bank post-haste.

Oh, I also found a neet-o mailing list, send a blank e-mail to "join-WordoftheDay@lists.lexico.com" to join. It's the word of the day! I love language :)

I was trying to think of another entertaining Merritt story to tell all of my faithful readers (are there actually any of you out there?) when I came to the startling conclusion that all of my supposedly entertaining stories require either (a) a 'you had to be there' kindof situation, or (b) more memory of the actual event than I actually possess. So no more promises of Merritt stories - sorry dearies, you'll just have to wait until something else interesting happens in my life.

I found a little blurb about my new apartment online, incase anyone wanted to know a wee bit about it, and where it is. I didn't actually purchase it, I'm renting it from the owner - but being in a complex where the majority of people actually own and care about their homes is going to be a definite plus. And... my new place has a brand new fridge and a DISHWASHER! You wonder why I'm so excited, take a look at my last apartment. Don't be deceived by the pictures... there is no tile, the paint is peeling, there are rats and bugs, and a strange odour of ethnic food and drug fumes permeates the entire complex. Today's lesson: never EVER rent anything from the Middlehaven property management group!
