The TV is happy now

Our new media centerThe Big Move In continues! My fancy new TV has been in Apartment 2024 for awhile now, but a couple of days ago we finally bought a fitting stand for it. That's the West Elm Modern Storage Media stand in acorn. The website lists it for $349.00, but luckily for us there is a West Elm in Center City. Marisa and I stopped in the store on our way back from Fork You Live (more on that in a little bit) to get a look at this media center in person. We had seen it online and liked it, but you want to touch these kinds of things. Boy, are we glad we did! It would seem that the acorn colored Modern Storage Media stand had been recently discontinued and was available in the store for $200 less than what was listed (and still is listed) on the website. The only problem? Finding a store that had one in stock. Luckily, we had the most helpful salesperson ever who looked up what stores were listed as having some of these in stock, and called them to make sure they had them. He then handed the phone over to Marisa, who ordered the stand and had it shipped to the apartment for $20. Not too shabby at all.

Fork You Live 02/23/08


Hey, Fork You fans that live in and around Philadelphia, make sure you have no plans this Saturday. Why? Because we're getting the gang together to do yet another Fork You Live at Fosters. This time around we'll be making Mac and cheese (a couple varieties), and you'll get to have some at the end of the show (free food and entertainment? How can you lose?).

Feel free to RSVP via Upcoming, or just show up. Here are the details:

2pm to 3pm

399 Market Street

We'll be in Apartment 399, their demo area, cooking up a storm (and we'll be filming the whole thing to make an episode).

I hope to see you there!

That explains that


Tweeterboard tracks Twitter users based on their relative 'influence.' For reasons unknown to me, I am currently the most influential Twitterer (according to Tweeterboard, of course, and no doubt by the time you read this I will no longer possess the top stop).

While I think this is meaningless, it does explain why I have seen an uptick in my number of followers.

Twitter is a stranger and wonderful thing.

Apple Security

Apple Security patchOne of my friends, who shall remain nameless, got me this Apple Security patch for my birthday. This is an official (though old, since Apple doesn't use that logo anymore) patch, my friends. Can you say collectors' item? I thought you could!

I am thinking about getting someone to sew it onto my laptop bag because I'm a geek like that.

Thanks, mystery gift giver!

Blankbaby Manor to relocate to Apartment 2024

Ain't she cute?Yes, the rumors are true! I'm fixin' to shack up with my little lady, Marisa. I am also, it would seem, slowly turning into a cowboy.

I'm not sure which of those two facts is more startling.

Marisa and I are quite enjoying being a couple, and have decided that it makes sense for me to completely uproot my life and uproot her life by moving all my earthly possessions into her well stocked, well lived in apartment on the lofty 20th floor. I have slowly been moving stuff over, and I'll be completely moved in by the end of March (at least that's when I have to be out of my apartment).

This will mark the first time in my five years in Philadelphia that I won't be living on Pine Street. Wacky, huh?
