cassaclyzm: (I do say...)
On Thursday, my painting buddy bailed. I was going to go by myself after work, but I also had to get groceries. While getting groceries, I lost my iPod somewhere and didn't realize it until I'd walked back to the station. So, with my groceries in hand, I backtracked all the way to the store, where thank $deity my iPod was waiting for me. Walked back to the station, caught the bus home. By this time it was nearly 7pm, and I knew by the time I got changed and caught the bus that I wouldn't be in the space and ready to start painting until after 8. So I decided to stay home and get a couple of things done there instead.

Friday was awesome date with [livejournal.com profile] amplepie who I don't even think uses LJ, but she has a journal registered so I get to link to her and be all cool.

Saturday [livejournal.com profile] epi_lj picked us up so we could go put a hole in [livejournal.com profile] amplepie's face. The medusa piercing looks cool! Then we went for sushi. I always forget that all you can eat sushi turns into an "all you can bloat" affair, but maybe because of *mumble mumble moon cycles* it lasted WAY longer than usual this time. I wasn't feeling well enough to do much of anything for the rest of the day, so I napped and grumbled and tried not to beat myself up too much.

Sunday! Today! I slept in a little and had a breakfast, then headed over to my new place a little after noon. And IT HAPPENED! I STARTED PAINTING! I got the ceiling all done in about three hours, then stopped for supper and to give my dad a call for Father's Day. My right arm was pretty sore but I wanted to get at least a couple more hours of work done on the walls.

Aaaaand that's when I discovered that I'd bought the wrong kind of paint. It's an accent base, apparently. Goes on clear. Thank you but I can achieve the same results by DOING NOTHING.

So now I need to take my paint back and exchange it for the right kind. I'd have done it tonight but the store had just closed. This will eat into my painting time tomorrow and will either involve carting heavy paint cans around on TTC or spending 20$ on cabs to the store and then to the apartment. But I should have my painting buddy back, and even if we don't get it 100% done tomorrow I should be able to finish it up another evening this week by myself if need be.

Ceiling looks pretty good, though, not gonna lie.

Getting home earlier than expected also gave me enough time to catch up on my budget, dishes, and laundry. And livejournal, naturally. I think I'm going to spend 20 minutes taking blankets off my walls and bagging them up (and maybe removing the hooks) and then call it a night.
