Cranes and Lizards; Dishwasher vs Soil; Tuxedo Mask or Platform Shoes

Cranes and Lizards
I went to Jubber's place for Easter. I made paper cranes on a whim.
I asked Malcolm to pick out his favorite flower at the craft store.
This was after he had picked out his favorite hat in the craft store.

And what a popular hat it was! I love it when Malcolm brings his parents with him over to Vancouver for a visit. We always have the best time and we always have Ethiopian food so it's just a pretty awesome event. Big props to Jubbers and Jason for hosting Easter dinner and a high five to Jenn and Jim for making it out here. I loves me family.

Dishwasher vs. Soil

This is my sister Jubbers. She's a cutie. That's her husband, Jason. He makes food so delicious you want to cry. They're a pretty neato couple. I approve.
They live in a character home which, on transit, is about fourty minutes from me. It makes for a sometimes stressful situation getting there as often as I'd like. It's worse getting home if I stay late, which I usually have to, because of our late night board game fiestas.

While there for Easter, we noticed a lot of strangers hanging out, not even just in front of Julia's place, but like, in her yard. On her staircase. It was weird. Turned out the suite below her place was showing.

I'll spare you the rather gory details, but a week later, I was giving my landlord notice. Craziness!!!! I'm moving! I had to weigh the options back and forth a couple of time. What were the pros for moving? And the cons?

Pro Con
soaker tub tiny bathroom
ability to garden no dishwasher
two bedroom (ie. craft room!) higher rent
closer to friends further away from friends
closer to Main street um... Marpole has... um.... yeah
and the Drive
easier to bike places moving is stressful
closer to work express bus... wait, they took that away
chance to purge have to purge
no mold on windows nothing matches that pro
being next to my sister again, nothing
and bro

Oh, and have I told you that other pro?

THAT'S MY NIECE!!!! And isn't it cute that they're holding hands?

Niece card trumped all.

Lala isn't sure how she feels about the move. Mostly she attacks shadows on the floor and meows at me every morning at 5:30. I think she's in denial.

Tuxedo Mask or Platform Shoes

Holy crap this is turning into a long post. Anyhoo. Recall the con item that was 'have to purge'? Yeah. I'm having a lot of angst. Now, I'm being good. I'm trying to channel my eldest sister and I got a lot done today but still. I'm just so confused! I need your help. Yes. You. Help me. Tell me what to do.

Item #1: Awesome Book Covers
I love these. Beautiful artwork, colourful, meaningful, but what am I to do with them?

Item #2: Tuxedo Mask figurine

He's fuzzy here I know, but he isn't in real life. I loves him so. But, I mean, he's really quite... useless. Sorry dude. It's true.

Item #3: Silver Platform Shoes
I should wear these on Sports day at school.

Item #4: Dragon lamp
Very cool, but not a lot of light. More my style in high school. Not sure if it fits in my current aesthetic. I cannot believe I spelled that word correctly on the first try. Get out of town!

Item #5: Cute figurine with Cat
A dear friend got this for me a long time ago. Again, not my style, but I love it. I love the cat. I love the solitude of the piece.

Item #6: Hello Kitty Pez Collection

Yup, comments below please people. I'll keep you updated on the move. Cause goodness knows I've gotten no bloody knitting done for a month. Egawds.
