in other news, i learned today that my roommate is going out of town for a week next month!!!!woohoo!!!!!! perhaps i can get that same week off, and lounge around the blessedly empty apartment. as a nice addendum to that, the weekend the roommate gets back, my friend jason has asked me to apartment/dog-sit...so i'll have a week of my own empty place in brooklyn, then a weekend with a sweet little dog in a luxury apt in manhattan. practically a vacation!
i really need to get around to the mortgage pre-approval paperwork, etc., and get my own damn house. with any luck, that & the writing will take off at the same time, and i can take the summer off of my regular job. what a dream!
