chair, apartment

yet I am tired.

I missed the free hour of daylight by sleeping. Which is probably what I'll do with each unsaved hour from now until April.

Despite my complaint about the shifting time, the weather today was nice enough to inspire me to take the hound for a walk. Going downhill, it seems like a good idea to walk from the house to Gasworks (where the Graffiti has been removed from the works). The way back, however, is another matter. All uphill. So the dog was really tired by the time we got home.

Later, I went to see the inside of the potential new apartment. The new tentative plan is to move at the end of November. I still have to run that by the landlord, but I think it will be O.K since he's insanely laid back.

I did a little more thrift store browsing for halloween. If I can't find anything better, I think that I'll just try to find as many cliche hipster artifacts as possible and wear them at the same time. This plan has the added benefit of me buying items that could potentially be reused.

I got home just as Al, Malinda, Geoff, Rachel, and Argos (Rachel's dog) were arriving from the Pumpkin farm. Al cooked dinner, which was great since I had pretty much not planned on eating anything. The two dogs were incredibly cute together. We tried to set up an official dogfight, but it didn't really develop.


I bet you wish you'd bought that MTV trucker hat now, don't you??? It would be the perfect accessory for any Halloween costume.
Twisting the knife!

Yes. I am filled with regret. Any trucker hat that I find will be but a pale shadow of that MTV masterpiece.

Too bad that cafepress doesn't express ship. I could get the "cousin steve".

I'm sorry, I shouldn't make you feel worse about it than you already do. If only there was time to make APB go pick one up and send it to you! It would have been so perfect, but oh well.

The "Cousin Steve" would make an excellent second choice, damn cafepress for making that impossible too! I guess you're just going to have to hope you can come across a cool John Deere or Budweiser one somewhere - the best of luck to you in your search.
fate conspires against me.

I'm a little concerned that "hipster" isn't enough of a costume, but I'll soldier on looking for the perfect trucker hat. And some hipster pants, etc.

My other option might be Harry Potter, but that would require many purchases, too.
Too bad you're so far away, I have a Harry Potter scarf I could loan you. The main component to a Harry costume seems to be the glasses and a lightning bolt on your forehead, as you could get away with regular clothes if you're being Harry on summer vacation. Good luck figuring out your costume before tomorrow...
Maybe you've thought of this already...but a hipster Harry Potter might just be a genius idea. Glasses, lightning bolt and maybe a wand (or stick the length of a wand) plus hipster apparel equals awesome. Just a thought. And this would help out with the not being sure if hipster is costume enough...
If not a hipster, it looks like Harry will be a littler hipper in the new movie. Or maybe they're just rehearsing out of costume?
