Just dropped "The American Art Book" on that maybe brown recluse. I think it had made a home in the curtain, because when I unfurled the curtain, it suddenly showed up. The carpet has a lot of give, so I don't know how dead it actually is. I'll maybe pile some more books on it before I go to bed and leave it as is.
When I was descending the stairs last night, my foot slipped to the side and my pinky toe caught the edge of the stair and twisted up. It still hurts, and it is very red, though just on the red side of purple, so it's not really so bruised but maybe by tomorrow? I don't know if it broken. I can touch and move my toe a little bit with just minor tenderness, but yanking on it really hurts. I'm icing and not icing and keeping it elevated. I can still sort of walk on it. Shoes will be an interesting thing tomorrow.
Monday in Seattle was super fun! We left the house at around 10:30ish. I rested my eyes a little bit. Dad stopped at one marine store, and then we went to this other where he met a dude who bought the old stove from the new boat. Then we went to another marine store in Ballard and bought a better stove and some tubing and other boat stuff. Boats need a lot of specific stuff! We swung by the Fremont Troll, which had some ugly defacement on it. And we got lunch at Ivar's and Dad fed a fry to a starling. Mom & I split a five piece order of fish and chips. Dad got some clams. I love me some Ivar's fish and chips. I could eat so many more of them. Then it was Ikea time!! Ikea for Billys for Ma & Pa. Ikea for frames for me. And a rug and some other odds and ends because wheee Ikea!! We stuffed everything into the van, and then got meatballs and cake and salad and panini for a later lunch. Need our energy for the two hours back to Seabeck! I chilled at home for a bit. Got some tea. packed up my car. Ma and Pa are working on the house, so things are being rearranged and moved about. New flooring! So long green and blue, it's been a few decades.
I swung by Target and grabbed a couple 18x24 frames (marked down) and 8x10 (also marked down) and headed back to Pulali. Injured my foot, but thankfully it was right before bed so I was able to keep it elevated right after initial injury. I slept in, had some cocoa and read for a few hours, had some pasta, put the new black ink cartridge into the printer. Fiddled with my resume and tidied it up and printed it out and it looks so pretty. I scanned some interview tips.
In a way having the injury is good because it was able to distract me from being nervous. Who can be nervous when maybe your foot is broken?
So yeah, pile books on the spider and go to bed and go to interview at noon!
Wish me luck!
