Well it is finally Monday. My whole body is aching. This must be one of the most tiring weekend of my entire life. Jennifer has moved to her new studio flat and it was a tough job.
Because it was nearby her old flat we decided to do the majority of our moving via foot. Which meant we had to lug bags after bags about 800 yards each way. Even midnight Friday. Fuckin' mad. Because of the sudden downpour we had to stay over at the new flat sans any bed. So we both had to sleep on the giant black bean bag.
We went to town a couple of times (by foot) to get new furniture and utensils. Lucky for us on Saturday we had help from Jennifer's old landlord, Chris, helped move the luggages to the new place twice with his Rover.
Sunday was a day where the moving was almost complete. Thank fuckin' god. On our way to the old flat to collect some leftovers, a guy was lying on the pavement having an epileptic fit. Someone has already dialed the emergency services. I hope he is alright. On our way back we passed a couple having kebabs nearby the Co-op store. We didn't think much about that until we walked by two hours later and the couple were still there sitting by the pavement having burgers. Friendly bunch. From the looks I believe they are traveling hippies.
Even weirder, we met a guy who was sitting outside his house with a laptop, table, chair and everything. He was playing an online shooting game. I know it is pretty warm that day but not that warm! He must have an Alienware laptop that probably requires outdoor wind to cool it.
Anyway while we were packing the leftovers we chatted with Jennifer's old flatmates, Enrei from Norway and Oliver, an Anglo-German. I gave Enrei a bunch of Death Metal compilation cassettes I made in 2001. You know, boyfriends usually tape favourite romantic slow songs for their girlfriends. I do too. But I record Death and Black Metal tracks.
Oliver is a crazy bunch. He is in a band and is currently writing an album. He is a nice guy but he fucks a lot. A couple of months back he was fucking two of his colleagues - a Spanish and French bird. He finally picked the Frenchie. Now fucking isn't exactly new, but to screw a continental girl (not to mention a French) meant something else - the moaning can be quite 'distracting'! Well he dumped the Frenchie after she suggested 'babies'. She still stalks him from time to time. Which reminds me of an old friend I knew six years ago who also had a girl stalker.
Well here are a couple of pictures of the new flat.
Here is a picture of the old flat. Almost four years there. Sure going to miss chatting with Chris and the rest. He is in a relationship problem right now so I wish him luck.
Here is a tip on defrosting your fridge. Because there is almost no clearance between the fridge's floor and the carpet it was impossible to put a tray on the outside to collect the water. But you can safely collect the water by placing a towel on one of the solid shelves and guide the towel to a huge tupperware. That way the water will flow down through the towel straight into tupperware. Simple and easy. Patented my idea.
