Welcome to Girl Friday’s House of Wit and Snark

I became a homeowner today! Well, condo owner to be precise. Here are some pics of random things I love about my 1100 square-foot, 1958 plush pad. I took these photos when Lucky 10-Key was out here for a visit.



My totally spacious living room and dining area.

Our very own Harry Potter closet. It’s not my crap in there, I swear. 🙂

The gorgeous tiled patio.


Lot’s of nice greenery and fragrant flowers aboud. I took a picture of this Hibiscus for Queen of Anagrams.

We are refinishing the hardwood floors this week and should be all moved in by November 12. I’m excited! I still can’t believe a bank gave me a half a million dollars. It’s almost as unbelievable that I live in one of the most expensive cities in the United States. Crazy.

In other news: Snakes! Well, one snake actually…

I spent way too much time these past two days dealing with a boa constrictor in a resident’s apartment. I’ve spent at least six hours total discussing said snake, dealing with crazy Snake Girl’s freaked out roommates, talking about solutions with the directors, and telling everyone I know about said snake. You have to be ten shades of crazy to think that harboring an uncaged boa constrictor in your university apartment would be okay. Snake Girl is ten shades plus a whole bunch more—she sleeps with her snake, calls it her baby, and didn’t feel the need to inform her poor roommates.

So that’s Girl Friday’s week in a nutshell. I hope your was equally wonderful and strange!?

    Wow, your new condo is amazing. Congratulations! “You know where snakes don’t belong? in university apartments they don’t belong in university apartments” (slightly modified Gilmore girls quote, ok I’m going to go find some sort of support group now)

    If you find a support group, let me know! I talk in way too many TV quotes! Thanks for the well wishes 🙂

    All I want to say is that I can’t wait to see the “after” photos from the condo. It will be a Christina home decor make over. My favourites are the gorgeous flowers and the tile patio. I can’t help but picture many scenic bbq’s and holday celebrations out there. And that is not to say that I will be inviting myself over for a cocktail or two every time there is a BSG showing or a VM episode 🙂 (One advice to Girl Friday: Please hurry up with the house warming wish list(registry) cause it is Xmas 🙂 )
    And thanks for the vacuum cleaner.
