Where the Shit Have I Been?!

Okay, so I know I've been MIA. I know I've been the worst kind of blogger. I don't want to go on about how busy I've been or how everything in my life has changed or how 2009 might be the greatest year on record. And, in that, I won't discuss my nihilistic fears, like, how could all these good things happen without something bad on its way down the pike?

I won't do that.

Instead I'll tell you that we close our apartment on Friday and I got a new job that I'll start on the 25th of May. It's a great step up and a fantastic new challenge and I'll be in charge of shit in a major way. I might go loco for choco-puffs with all this change. Time will tell.

On the home front, our drapes are in production - I chose a lovely eggplant corduroy. The weight and material fairly masculine with just the right hit of softness in the colour. We've hired a contractor and he'll start bright and early on Saturday tearing out a closet, laying down some tile. We hired two strapping young men to paint; that'll happen some time next week. It's all coming together.

I was doing my thrice-daily flip through Apartment Therapy today and came upon Tom Colicchio's (Top Chef) apartment. I love it. Bright and clean, yet warm. Manly and chic, all at once.

I know you haven't heard from me lately, but there are many posts to come while we settle-in to our new digs. Before and after's like you won't believe!


  1. Please tell me that's a picture of an apartment that you'd like to have and not a picture of your actual apartment! A new job, a fantastically awesome new apartment, two strapping young painters?!?! You're doing something right, Mister, enjoy it! Keep us posted on your new pad!

  2. what's your new job?! (I just tried e-mailing you at your .mac address and it didn't work. E-mail me and tell me things. frig.)
