So my gojira is going to be here in less than 15 days and I have sooooo much to do… It’s going to be exciting checking off all the things I have to finish doing before he gets here because I know as I cross them off one by one he will be here sooner and sooner till he’s finally here!!!! I think once he comes in my door I’m going to stick to him like a leech and never stop kissing him and hugging him… human touch is so important.. Living alone with no friends and with my parents living far far away I don’t even remember the last hug I’ve received. Im going to squeeze as many hugs and kisses out of his trip visiting me as i can. <3
So here is my to do list… its kind of boring but what the hell…
-call the plumber to fix the toilet. (since last week the flush won’t stop flushing. I mean it stops but the water still keeps dripping down into the bowl so I have to shut off the water from behind after I’m done flushing.)
-exchange barbecue. I realized the barbecue I bought for gojira as a Valentine’s Day gift was seriously too tiny than we had anticipated so I’m paying 2 grand more and getting it exchanged for a bigger one since I haven’t used the barbecue yet and we plan on doing a lottt of barbecuing ( everyday while he’s here) The first pic is what I bought initially and the 2nd one is what I’m exchanging it for.
-Buy plastic chairs for the terrace. Or we won’t have anything to sit on while we barbecue.
-Get mosquito net hooks refixed. My bed used to be on the floor as a divan. After my dad visited me in Jan he decided to build me a double bed. Now the mosquito net which I hook on with strings is too low. So I need to get the hooks removed and put higher up in proportion to my bed. To those of you who don’t know what a divan is check out the pic below.. It’s a fancy word for bed on the floor. lol.
In the summers I get natural air conditioning if I leave the windows wide open. I have to depend on this ventilation since I live on the 3rd floor and right above me is the terrace. Because the terrace is right above me my apartment heats up like an oven during the day.. summers are really torture but the nights are nice and cool… leaving the windows open, the only source of relief brings in a whole hoard of mosquitoes. If you don’t sleep with a net you will literally get eaten alive!
- Go lingerie shopping. : / I need to have an element of surprise the first night Gojira comes. I would normally be excited but I wanted company for this task. I wish some of my female Xangan friends lived closer =( I’m sure they would have helped me pick out something flirty and special…
-Take my bike for servicing. I have a Honda Activa. Trusty old thing has taken me all through college. I learned how to ride a scooter for the first time on it and while I got accustomed to the psychotic traffic here in India. It’s gotten pretty banged up in a lot of accidents but it still works and is pretty reliable. I need to get it serviced so its running smoothly while Gojira is here. This is what my scooter looks like.
-Pay my cable bill. I knew I was going to be mad busy these past couple of months so I don’t subscribe for my cable bill unless I know I’m going to be free enough to watch it. I haven’t had cable since Jan. Gojira and I have decided that watching tv and movies will waste a lot of time so we’re not planning on doing so except for the couple of movies we have decided on watching together (The Notebook, Exotica, Avatar, and umm that’s all I can think of right now.) Watching a movie is actually such an anti social activity if you think about it. Watching a screen for 2 hours without talking. But it’s best to get the cable paid for so that he can watch his wrestling if he ever feels like it. Or we might feel like watching something on those hot summer days when it feels like torture to move anywhere too far away from the fan..
-Get the gas pipe changed. In India most households have gas cylinder that they use to cook from. The pipe that connects from the gas cylinder to the stove is a little frayed and is worrying me so I want to get it replaced before I have any leaks.
And then of course there is the normal dusting and so forth. I have some boxes still left to unpack since I got the house painted.. I haven’t even had time to iron the curtains for the spare bedroom. Until they’re ironed I can’t put them up.. I guess I will pay my cable bill and then do the ironing so I won’t be so bored doing it. Curtains take foreeevverr.. and I have to iron the curtains for the spare bedroom AND the living room. sucks… I hope I get this all done in time without breaking my back.. sigh.. this light is turned off..
