I got offered tickets to the daily show, but I need to be able to get to midtown by 4pm on August 19th.....


If you really want to go, I would say go regardless and miss the afternoon session of legal methods (if you even have to). Tell your professor you won't be able to make afternoon class on August 19th and it will have no effect on your performance or the professor's opinion of you.

Just settled into my apartment and I could not be more exhausted. Walking walking walking.

Haha sorry I've had a friend visiting me for the past few days. But she's leaving tomorrow, and I'd definitely be down for some heavy drinking tomorrow night (I have 2 carts of stuff from Ikea and 9 boxes from UPS scheduled to be delivered tomorrow... sigh... we obviously didn't end up having the balls for the uhaul).

Whoooo. So UnknownElementX and I went to The Heights (bar on Broadway btwn 111th/112th) a few nights ago for a brewsky. It was rockin'. I suggest we reconvene with larger numbers there soon. And then all retreat to my apartment for some So You Think You Can Dance.

Seriously though, since moving up to MH I've been too lazy to leave the neighborhood. And it's been ridiculously hot. Like hell I'm going down to the UWS when we all live within ten blocks of eachother. The 1-train in the middle of the day is like a Russian bathhouse.

FYI, I'm in SJ at the moment for my birthday, but I'll be back on Saturday, so no shenanigans until then! I command it.

FFYI, Bolt Bus is the shit.

EDIT #3: How great is Westside Markets? And the 24-hour Duane Reade? <3 UAH

It was $100 for everything up to 1500 lbs. I didn't love paying even that much but....

On another note, I'm downgrading my apt from pretty clean to kinda clean.

Regarding furniture, I'm moving into furnished university housing next week, but the problem is I already have some furniture in storage that my brother left for me before he left New York. If anyone is interested in borrowing furniture for the year PM me. Obviously it would be free, you would just have to move it (and return it in the spring).

I CAN'T MOVE IN ON THE WEEKEND.

Oh, FUCK.

I am so pissed off right now :evil:

I assumed the email meant when you could get your keys, not physically move in. I guess I'll be on an air mattress for at least a week if not a week and a half, since I can't reschedule right away. :x I'm thinking of just sticking some of my stuff in storage.

At least the apartment seems nice, and the super is hilarious. I also guess I live in New York now.

Why can't you? I mean, technically I couldn't, but I did anyway. You just have to be on the DL about it.

There's no way. It would be a major move, and I've already been warned about the rent-controlled tenant below me who apparently regularly screams at the poor people who live above her because their kids run around on her floor. If it was a couple things, I'm sure it would be fine, but I was going to move my whole apartment. Except I'm not so sure anymore; I might shove a lot of it in storage. I don't really need nice things while I'm in law school. :(

So people brought in mattresses and minor stuff like that on the weekend? I assume a small move would be fine. A moving truck might be conspicuous though.

Same. You can't do anything on campus without it. I'm practically dying to lift right about now.


And Lem, what was the demographic of the club you went to? Undergrads?

I have a feeling that the tenant would scream at you no matter what day you move. I found it necessary to move on a Sunday because the horse trailer which contained all of my shit would not be able to find parking on my street on a week/work day, so sometimes you just gotta bite the bullet and say fuck it.

:?

I have to think about this now. Thanks for sharing this.

Okay. I'm going to move in 2 stages, and cut out the moving company. This was probably the right call anyway, but I was trying to get it done quickly. Tomorrow I sleep in Morningside Heights!
