Fata Morgana

ballroom, meme, personal
I've had trouble sleeping in my room, between streetlights and morning light coming in my windows, so today I made window shades. Two yards of blackout fabric, two wooden dowels, four three-inch nails, and a dozen staples make two shades for about $7 each. Better than the $33 price quotes online! I just need to add some string to raise them. My housemate helped me saw off the dowels and cut the material, and in turn I introduced him to Cheese Board pizza.

Next I have to figure out what to do about the noise ....

I've almost finished organizing my room, aside from books and wall decorations still in storage, and the occasional heap of stuff on shelves or the floor. I found that my bleach leaked, burning holes in my new corduroys and in my paper globe, and making interesting patterns on my favorite pair of pants ... but it could have been much worse.

I danced with a potential Standard partner for a couple of hours today. He seems headstrong and prone to impatience, but he's very good. Unfortunately, he has had a partner for a couple of months now, though he says I'm a better match for him. Hopefully we can work something out; I haven't had any other leads, so to speak.

Well, this is a somewhat boring entry ... I'll post more of my controversial class notes over the weekend. :~)

Results of silly personality tests:

Ichi - "That one with wisdom"

I'm either an Accountant (last night; can't remember the acronym and can't re-create it), an Administrator (Submissive Extrovert Concrete Thinker), or a Mastermind (Submissive Introvert Abstract Thinker), depending on what I put for questions that I feel ambivalent about. Interestingly, if you don't fill in anything you're a mastermind.

I have design taste like fanlain, apparently: Introspective, Sensitive, Reflective; also somewhat Down to Earth, Well-Balanced, Harmonious.

That's all, folks!

blackout curtains
Yay for blackout curtains! I put up blackout shades in my place, too, but apparently I did it wrong, because light seeps around the edges and still wakes me up. Also, speaking of noise, I think I just got a new neighbour and last night for the first time I heard ppl having sex on a creaky bed through my wall. Luckily, it didn't go on for too long, but it was at 3 am (I was up, reading lj entries anyway). I hope this isn't going to be a regular thing...
