Space, my final frontier

Posted in Uncategorized by antisociology on June 28, 2008

Now that I can cook without having to clean up after a roommate, I’ve been preparing a lot more food at home. Couscous. Roast veggies of various types. Eggs and sausage are my weekend morning treat. I love preparing and eating food…especially tasty food. The fact that Whole Foods is on my way home hasn’t helped my credit card bill much.

There’s something about preparing food for one, though, that makes me feel especially lonely. The apartment actually feels a bajillion times bigger when I cook (despite not having much counter space at all). I think I need to find someone to cook with and eat my extra food.

Last week, my legs were restless all the time. I couldn’t sit still at work, and it was kind of tough to sleep. Usually, this is a sign that I want to run, so I finally got out and ran on my own this past Saturday. DRENCHED. Of course, I also ended up soaked to the bone on the Monday night group run. Still, it feels good and I hope that I’ll stick with it.

I know that I’ll have to take it pretty easy, at least mileage wise, until I regain my fitness. A few weekends ago I went cycling with a good friend and he whomped my butt up the local hills. Usually we are not so far apart, but this guy was minutes ahead.

I may need to become a morning runner/cyclist. It gets a little difficult to get out and run at the end of a workday.

Well, I’ve moved into my new place and have now set about furnishing it. I’ve become really domestic recently, thinking about cleaning and cooking and that Perfect Furniture Arrangement. I’m not sure if this is because I finally have my own place, have a bigger place, or can just flat out afford to be unabashedly consumerist. It’s probably not the latter, because I’ve never made any bones about being materialistic. Even when I couldn’t afford a lot, it had to be the best and, if not the best, then at least great. It’s my opinion that everything should be well designed, even $2 can openers.

My new dishrack has a five year warranty and a little instruction leaflet that encourages purchasers to go register their item on the website. I found this highly amusing.

Of course, there are all the things that I have put off spending money on. I haven’t had a dentist appointment in an embarrassingly long time. The anti-glare coating on my eyeglasses is flaking off, making it look like I’m a lazy sod who doesn’t know how to wash his glasses. My air filter is long overdue for a replacement filter kit. I have a set of speaker cables that broke a year ago and need to be repaired. Waaa. Poor me. 😛

Things are going well, though. I really do adore my new digs, and business at work is picking up. This is good, even if it does mean that I’m about to get really busy. Business going well means that there’s just that little more of a chance that this startup thing may work out.
