Dehording for the party

We spent most of the day today cleaning for this weekend. I think we actually made progress on dehoarding - the back hall is finally clean. On the otherhand we disturbed so many scooters and spiders from their old homes - good thing you moved out yesterday (e:mike).

This back hall window has two different lock parts that don't match up. Jamming a blue cap in it seemed to fix it.

Dog days if Tihar

This weekend I dog sat Midnight for my parents. I really miss him sometimes, but even just seeing him I have to shower and change or else (e:paul) is allergic. :( Still my best bud. I probably was at my parent's for 10 hours this weekend, and walked him for 4 or 5.

It was also the day of Tihar, the Hindu dog festival. In Nepal, they celebrate with all dogs, even strays, by feeding them, making them flower necklaces and coloring their schnozzes with pigment. It's a holiday I could get on board with.

Mike and Dave's new house

We all helped out (e:mike) and (e:libertad) move into their new pad. It's weird to see Mike move out - I got used to him as a roommate.

The new house is so cute - both the location and the house itself. It seemed like there were so many new families that had were moving or just moving in too - I can't think of many places in Buffalo like that.

Mickey's Halloween

(e:yesthatcasey), (e:steve), Masumi, (e:terry) and I went to Mickey and (e:robert)'s Halloween party Friday night. It was ridiculous. Terry was a mime and I went as Paul - naked, basically. I met a bunch of new people who hopefully will be coming next week,

Rain Barrel

Friday I went down to Riverkeeper to buy a rain barrel for the garage. For $100, we got a barrel, and Riverkeeper gets to keep the profits.

Unfortunately the barrel will crack in the winter. But it should keep the garage drier and the back gardens wet. Plus, it's reused from an olive shipping company. It smells so amazing.

International Institute Dinner

The International Institute dinner was Thursday at the Hotel Lafayette. (e:paul) and I joined the Allen Street crew after work.

The food was real tasty but sadly they ran out of a lot of the veggie things before I got to try them. The best part was that I think the desserts - Bavarian Nut company, and Gelato Gypsy included.

We also saw Seth play for the event.

New NFTA stations

The new stainless steel metro stations in the 500 block look so much freaking better than the old rusty green ones. Too bad they're only replacing two stations worth - the rest make us look stuck in the 80's. They've also kept the creepy classical music playing.

I love Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is my new favorite city. I feel like I'm cheating on Buffalo when we're there. It has a such a big city feel compared to Buffalo and a way better landscape. Who can even imagine your legs biking around this town? Beast.

We got to do a bit more exploring this time, and hung out with my sister Emily.

When can we move?

Raw potato

On the way to Pittsburgh, we stopped at Wendy's for lunch. I don't rememeber the last time I ate there but it was over 6 years ago because I liked their chicken nuggets.

I ordered a baked potato. It was hot but completely uncooked. The nacho cheese sauce was something at least.

Garage windows

To go along with the new garage roof, (e:paul) and I finally replaced the broken glass window.

He got real into it - we ended up jigsawing a craft store stick in half to use as window trim. It looks good, and I finally feel like we can keep stuff in there.
