We've Closed!

Not closed down, mind you, but closed on the contract to our new place! Yay! We have started moving select boxes over ourselves, ones with crystal and china and other breakable things we will never use. Someday, maybe! German American Fest was going on last weekend, so trying to park without running over drunk people with huge beer mugs was difficult, but we managed! The movers come this weekend.

We tried doing some laundry in our brand new washer/dryer, but we didn't know that the vent was not open. Thankfully, we didn't die of carbon monoxide fumes. So, we moseyed down to 24 Hour Laundry World. Not the best place, but it is interesting to people watch there. The TV was playing the Disney Channel, and needless to say it made me miss the good old days of Pinwheel and You Can't Do That on Television. There was a dramatic dirt-skateboard race set to heavy metal music going on in the TV show. Of course the young kid beats the scruffy looking hipster. Parents, don't let your kids grow up to be hipsters! Plus it's always more dramatic when the loser of the race gets arrested at the end. Too bad the volume was down, I'll never know what he did besides leave the safe confines of Wicker Park...

P.S. Pictures coming soon!
