We need to talk.


Set a date and time for maf chat or just creep on my gmail. Also, I love that you use this thread to send messages instead of emailing or texting. That's a pretty shameful way to bump your post count. :|

I have neither your number nor your email address. I'd use Mafia but that appears to be dead.

Posting again for Luke's benefit.

Don't fall for his maternal "you never call me anymore" guilt. He has tried it on me too.

Hey for people who did the Electronic Master Promissory Note, have you heard from U of C yet as far as when you would get your loans? If so, I have not yet seen in the reference form could that possibly be whats holding me up?

They sent out award letters like a month ago. You should probably call/email Karla ASAP.

I have a feeling I won't ever actually start reading GTM until September 18. Even though it's been sitting in my house for, oh, 2 months. Argh.

Ugh - so true. I keep finding other things to read instead. Whoops.

I'm telling myself it will sink in better this fall because I'll be able to contextualize it. Yeah, that's the ticket...

Cool! When are you moving in? I'm headed to Chicago around the 20th (will be arriving with my SO in the dorkiest car ever made.... and one I can't drive, since I can't drive stick). Have you thought about furniture yet? Here are some ideas my SO and I have been compiling for anyone who's interested:

(1) Furniture Outlet: It's basically a retailer for three companies: Ashley (ashleyfurniture.com), Home Elegance (homelagance.com) and Coaster Furniture (coasterfurniture.com), so you can order anything out of their catalogs and they could have it delivered to you. They also have a warehouse, so you can go and check out what they have in store.

(2). Roy's Home Furnishings (roysfurniturecompany.com). They're said to have a very large selection at reasonable prices.

(3). Nadeau (furniturewithasoul.com). A furniture wholesaler with good reviews, but it's hard to tell what they have from the website, so you'd have to pay them a visit.

(4). Dania (daniafurniture.com). The furniture looks to be reasonably priced.

(5). Room and Board (roomandboard.com). It's a bit too expensive, but maybe one can get a discount on floor model or something.

(6) There's also the used furniture option. Craigslist works, and there are various thrift stores. Here's a website (http://www.squidoo.com/chicagothriftstores) listing the various thrift stores in the Chicago area (it even suggests certain driving/walking routes to follow to visit all the thrift stores in a given neighborhood). Another site that provides both local listings of furniture and also a list of sales and events is Apartment Therapy (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/chicago). You could also buy tickets to the Randolph Street Market on August 27-28 (http://www.randolphstreetmarket.com/ran ... index.html). There may be some nice things there.

I won't be getting there until early September :( and I have to start from scratch furniture-wise, so I'm definitely going to IKEA for at least the bigger items. Super exciting, I know haha

i apologize sincerely. I tried to make my post as spoiler free as possible, but I see that it could cause some evil thoughts in anticipation of things to come.
