I have the keys!

Yes, ladies and germs, I have the keys to my new, deeluxe apartment.
Of course, there's a story behind it: Yesterday, I stopped in the rental office of the building I'm now in, to make sure the elevator was available for May 1st. "No," I was told, "you have to move out on April 30th by midnight."
Crap! Everything was already set for May 1st: mover, couch and washer/dryer delivery, the whole shebang.
So a quick phone call to the new building manager got me the okay to move in a day earlier. The mover said no, it was impossible, so I said I wouldn't cancel them yet, but could they suggest someone else? It's amazing what happens when you threaten to go to the competition. All of a sudden, they could make arrangements, and would 8:30am be okay?
So, seeing as I'll be away all next week, new building gave me keys today, and a quick look-see at the apartment. BEE YOO TEE FULL! All that's left to do is move in the fridge and dishwasher, and touch up the paint in a few places.
All I have to do now is get Sunday, April 29 off. I'm supposed to work, but now with the move moved up a day, I kinda need the day to finish packing. I'm wishing I hadn't dragged my ass the past couple weeks.
Speaking of which, I gotta go now, and get in another hour of packing before going to work.
Later, Blog Gators.

Good for you Bobby!
I hope the anticipation of the new place is everything you have imagined it.

Sounds very nice... when you having all of us over for the house-warming?

You tell me when you can get the lamb, I'll get the spit set up, then it's party time!

EVERYbody drags their ass when it comes to packing up the house. My wife and I spent the last two weekends before our move getting baby pics done for our Christmas cards! ANY excuse to put it off is a good excuse. Packing bites bum.

Your asking a GREEK when I can get the lamb? Heck, I got a few running around the garage.

... and before long you'll be packing up the entire TV station and moving to new digs.

It never stops dood!

Congrats on the new place! My camera's ready for you to show it off to the BBBloggers!

Maria, I think that was the funniest thing you've ever said.

p.s. I'll take two chickens, please, and some baklava.

I can be a party mama too.

Maria said...

gee thanks JB... (I think?)
Good weekend people.

A person knows that they might be spending too much of their time making sarcastic remarks when they compliment someone, and the person they're complimenting isn't sure if they should say 'thank you' or not. I'll try again.
Maria - your "lambs in the garage" comment?
I laughed out loud. Really.
Have a good weekend yourself.
