my mom and aunt finally showed up around 10 p.m. (i managed to get them on the cellphone just as they were about to go to an entirely wrong subway stop because they forgot the name of the place where i live) and have been going nuts ever since.
apparently, they've been planning to clean up all my brother's unpacked shit all along. it's now almost half past midnight, and they're showing no sign of slowing down. i've told them they can do whatever they want except put anything up on the walls. i refuse to have my brother's ikea crap on the walls* but told them to feel free to hang whatever they want in his room. they promised. we'll see.
they've already fixed up our walk-in closet. i've been too lazy to fold/hang clean clothes so all my clean stuff has been in a pile for the past two months. suddenly, it's all folded or on neat hangers. did you know i own 15 bra's? apparently, this isn't normal**, and i have now been forbidden to buy any more. whatever. bra's are cheap, and pretty. i refuse to give up the habit of buying a bunch every few months. whateeeever. my aunt just started wearing a bra two years' ago, so what does she know?
i'm definitely a bit.. hesitant. who knows what the apartement will look like in 6 hours when i wake up to go to work? and then they have all day alone at the apartment to do even more... stuff. meep.
anyway. i'm glad they're here. am also glad to be going to sleep now. cin cin! :)
* his art is nice, and i really don't mind ikea art, they have a lot of pretty stuff, but when that is all you have and not even one photo or real poster, it feels very void of personality. i will not have my newly wallpapered walls have holes put into them just to put up meh crap. my walls, my crap, or no crap at all, etc. i have roughly 17,000 photo's on this computer. i hope to eventually have at least a handful of the pictures up on my walls, heh, even if it takes another year to get it done.
** or is it? i haven't got a clue. how many bra's do ya'll own (and regularly wear)?
i don't know, i just prefer fairly new bra's, they just fit nicer. most bra's i buy are either on sale, or cost, like $20. some days, i spend that just on breakfast and lunch at work, so whatever, you know?
