I have gotten approval for my rental application and will be moving May 1st. Since I hate commuting, it is up the hill from my work. Keith, I think, was a little annoyed with me for my choice of location since he was hoping to stay in the neighbourhood, but since he did not respond positively to any discussions about moving in with me I was obliged to not include him in my plans.
It turns out that Katie’s in laws DO have bedbugs. Paul and I bought poly wrapping and tape so they can keep their bedding clean after they wash it and Katie delivered it. Apparently 15 of the little buggers came out of a pillow when it was put on the balcony to ‘chill’. They don’t do so good in the cold.
I had bedbugs when I was a kid, and I remember the smell of the insecticide. Brr. When I saw the bitemarks on Katie – she always was the tenderest morsel of us lot – I just shook my head and made my pronouncement. Then we went to the internet and found out that the line of bites they make is macabrely termed “Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner”.

As far as we can tell, none of them made it here, and if they did, oh well. It’s a lot easier to spray in here now with all the crap in the garage, and there’s not a sausage in Katie’s room anymore, she’s long since hauled it all out to the garage. I would have been bitten by now anyway, as it’s only about a ten foot crawl from her room to mine.
Sarah Michelle Gellar may play Harley Quinn in the new Batman. I could more or less get next to that.
m0m will be turning up shortly. Well, longly – she’s doing the harbour to harbour flight, which is awesome when the weather’s good and a bit urpy when not. Keith’s out the door for Comicon (Paul will be leaving for Seattle with him straight from work).
Heather detailed the bathroom yesterday, so things are pretty shiny clean in there. My various excesses with respect to lack of sleep (and sleep interruptions, details of which I will politely not enumerate ;P) caught up with me and I slept about 12 hours yesterday. Now it’s 6:23 and I’m ready for further punishment.
