New apartment. New adventures.

If last night was just a glimpse of what's to come.... I'm not sure that I'm going to survive living by myself!

So, yesterday, I left work a little giddy about my new apartment! I got to the office, had to sign a zillion pages of paperwork! I did a walk-thru with one of the managers just to make sure everything looked - but since I'm the first one to live there after the remodel, everything is brand new! After she gave me the keys and left, I couldn't help myself from doing cartwheels in my new living room! I had to run a few errands, met up with my friend Megan, and the two of us headed off to the grocery store to pick up a few essentials. It was a little difficult trying to decide what to make for dinner when I didn't have any pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils, nothing! We decided on a frozen pizza - and made sure to get one that we could stick right in the oven - seeing as how I didn't have any cookie sheets. We bought some paper towels, and some soap to wash the glasses that I had bought about 15 minutes earlier!

On the drive back to my new place, I realized that I didn't have a knife to cut the pizza with. Megan and I agreed that it wasn't essential that we have a knife, so we continued home! After carrying in a few things, we decided to let the pizza cook while we unloaded the stuff that I had packed in my car. So I turned on my oven while giving Megan the grand tour! I could smell something a little funky, but didn't really think much of it, until I started back toward the kitchen, and realized that it smelt like something was burning.... and sure enough, I look in the oven, and there's FLAMES! I freaked out for a second, then hurried and turned off the oven and opened the door! Anyway... me, being the brilliant one that I am, didn't check the oven before I turned it on, and since it's brand new, it still had some cardboard in there, the instruction booklet and some other paperwork - which caught on fire pretty quickly when it turned on! So - Megan and I we laughing pretty hard - but still trying to figure out what to do about the flames in my oven! I didn't have anything in my kitchen besides the pizza, some OJ in the fridge, and the box of cereal that Megan had just bought. So I turned on my sink, and started cupping the water in my hands, and 'throwing' it into my oven! It was pretty funny!! Once the flames were out, we pulled out the manual and the bottom of it is partially burnt!! We managed to get all the paper and plastic things out of the oven, and then turned it up as hot as the oven would go, and left the oven door open to try and get rid of the little puddle of water in the bottom of the oven. We managed to eventually cook our pizza, and get it out of the oven without too much drama! I remembered that I had some scissors in one of the boxes that I had brought in, so we literally cut the pizza! It's probably one of those things where 'you had to be there' , but Megan and I had quite a bit of fun!


A little later, Sheri and Diana came over too. Sheri had made a cute little cake (from scratch!) She even frosted it and wrote 'Welcome Home'! We had a fun evening of girl talk and laying on the floor of my empty living room!
I can already tell that this whole living-by-myself thing is going to be quite an adventure! And I couldn't be more excited!

I'm dying right now. This TOTALLY sounds like something I would do!! You could always tell when I was cooking because of the smoke! Do you have room in your new apartment for a guest?

Ariel said...

its ok. i've lit pizzas on fire before when it was just a pizza and not an instruction booklet.

i am so glad about your new place@@!!!

You probably burned the warranty, but who needs that? You probably voided it with your fire anyway! I can't believe that in all this time you haven't collected a glass or a pan. Good luck with this new venture!

That does sound more of an emma thing to do, but I can just hear your laugh now! I miss it and I miss you.

Между прочим, история ее создания была очень интересной и немного оригинальной. Так, в конце 20 века двое известных разработчиков приступили к разработкам. И мало кто знал тогда, что буквально через несколько лет игра станет столь любимой по всей Земле. Правда, у одного из разработчиков, имеющего прозвище «Гусятник», уже был подобный опыт – известная стрелялка «Quake 2». В марте того же года игра получила свое название, а первая тестовая версия вышла уже летом. Тогда все пользователи ринулись ее опробовать, и интерес к игрушке не пропал до сегодняшнего дня. А все потому, что пользователи, которые так ее любят, получили все, что нам пообещали авторы.
