She lives! She posts!

Things you might want to know:

(1) I'm back in Williamsburg, safe and sound.

(2) I had a fantastic time in New York City, but I ran myself ragged and am overjoyed to be back home. I'm sorry I was completely AWOL from LJ for most of the month. I promise posts about my trip, with picspams, in the near future.

(3) I am so glad to be done with my roommates in NYC. One was almost never there and was really nice when she was there. The other two spent most evenings on their cell phones very loudly arguing with their boyfriends. Schnazzy.

(4) I have one roommate at the house here in Williamsburg. She moved in while I was gone and seems really nice. It is looking like the third roommate will be a guy. He came to look at the house Saturday before I got back, but the current roommate said he seems like a good guy and his emails make him seem like a good guy. He's submitted a credit check to the landlord so if he is approved he's moving in at the end of the week.

(5) My last post was about the fantabulous Harry Potter Stufepy cupcake I had in NYC. Unfortunately, never did find out what the fourth Harry Potter themed cupcake was so that shall always be a mystery. I did go to the same bakery about once a week and had the Caramel Apple, Bad Boy (I think that was the name), and Blueberry Cobbler cupcakes. Caramel Apple was spice cake with apple filling and vanilla frosting and was my favorite. Bad Boy was chocolate cake with vanilla filling and frosting. Blueberry Cobbler was white cake with blueberry filling, vanilla frosting, and strudel stuff on top.

Things I'd like to know:

(1) How am I going to get through all the documents I now have in anything under, oh, twenty years?

(2) I had a dream the other night. At least, I think I ahd a dream. I woke up in the middle of the night with this idea in my head that must have been a scene from a dream and I thought, "Hey, that would make a fantastic Remus/Tonks story. I should turn on a light and write down this fantastic idea since I haven't felt like writing fic in ages and this could jump start me." That thought was followed by, "No, I'm too tired and this is way too vivid for me to forget it." Why didn't I get up and write it down and what was it that I dreamed?

(3) How much would it cost me to get the entire run of Sandman and is there anyway to get it cheaper than retail?

(4) Somewhat related, is it wrong that I'm seriously considering signing up for Twitter primarily so I can more easily keep up with the awesomeness that is Neil Gaiman and his tweets? I check his feed every day or two already, but I think having my own account would make it all easier. I know sandykidd has a twitter account. Does anyone else on the Flist?

(5) Since I was rather AWOL from LJ while I was in NYC (gotta love initialisms), did I miss anything important or interesting? I tried to check in and read posts even if I didn't have time to comment or post myself, but I'm sure I missed some stuff. Anything you want to share?

I have a Twitter account that I never post to that is purely for the reason of stalking Neil Gaiman and Michael Sheen and reading their updates. I also have a work related one that I do update, but it's all boring and work related :)

So glad you had a fantastic time in NYC!!!!!!!

Glad to know that NYC was productive!

Guy roommates can be low-drama if they aren't assholes. Just don't expect him to clean anything ;)

I'm on Twitter. It's nice that you can choose whose tweets get sent to your cellphone, and you can just read the rest on the web.

We're putting a cleaning schedule in writing once everyone gets moved in so he'd better clean at least some. We'll see.

I don't currently have texting or web on my phone, but I'm going to get a smart phone (haven't decided for sure which one but I'm rather keen on the Palm Pre) in the next few months. Maybe I should wait on Twitter until then so I'll get more out of it?

I'm so jealous of those cupcakes.

Realize that might not make total sense. I'm jealous you got to eat those cupcakes, because now I want to eat the cupcakes. There we go!

LOL. It's all good. I knew what you meant. There were fantabulous. I already miss the Caramel Apple in particular and when I was grocery shopping today considered buying a spice cake mix and a can of apple pie filling. It wouldn't even come close, but it would at least be something.

Thanks. It'll probably be two or three weeks tops before I'm complaining about how boring Williamsburg is and how much I want to get out of this town, but for now I'm so happy to be home.
