i've just agreed to let my brother move in when gabi moves out (which means he'll move in this april). he literally just called and asked, and i agreed.
i... don't know. i think despite our insane battles, it'll actually work out, because i honestly don't think we'll see much of each other - i'm only home 7 pm-7am weekdays, and spend most of weekends in my room catching up on things online and taking it easy. my brother will probably continue to work in the restaurant/catering business, and be out with friends to party a lot, so he'll be gone most nights and probably mostly be home to veg sundays.
i'm gonna share the apartment with my brother. we've been nagging him for years to move out of ronneby, and this time he's finally doing it. wow. i'm so proud of him for finally taking charge of his life.
...i hope this doesn't end up a bad decision, haha.
but it's okay. i will retain the lease in my name only, and so i will always have the power, haha.
it'll be really good to be able to stop planning a move. i really wasn't all that up for all the mess with moving right now, especially not having my rent almost double. plus, my brother will bring up some furniture so my livingroom will finally have a chance to look decent (right now we only have a broken couch, haha. the armrest broke off almost a year ago, and is now supporting the left side of the couch by having been shoved underneath.). he'll probably bring his 52" tv, too.
in a weird way, i'm looking forward to it. he's tall, so i can probably nag him into doing a few things i've always wanted to do to this apartment, like fix up our huge balcony space, and put up curtains in the livingroom, and an actual ceiling lamp. as long as he doesn't get obnoxious with playing things too loudly on his computer, and doesn't EVER bring home booty-calls, it should be fine.
weird stuff. :)
i went and saw the last king of scotland with a friend last night. it was very, very good. forest whitaker was really great. i could definitely live with him taking home the oscar this year. tomorrow, i go see perfume with another friend. i expect it to be okay, but visually grabbing (i'm a tom tykwer fan, and especially like the princess and the warrior, which i recently got on dvd. it's very good.)
and i finally got the revamped little blue world website online. phew. took forever..
