My downstairs neighbor from last year and i became quick fun good friends-- a miracle, really! (i lived in that apt for like 8 yrs and never ever even TALKED to anyone downstairs, probably 6-7 tenants in that time--and it's only two apts, a two-level whatchamacallit.."two-family" home on a really nice street with great neighbors). when i first met her (on the stairs down to the basement--we were both doing laundry) we dove right in, talked about boys, gender wars, dating, dating paradigms based on business models---let's say we totally hit it off and pretty much stood there on the grody stairs for like an hour, with too much too discuss... anyway, i was really really lucky to have her as a friend. and i got so used to being so close-by, now it's hard to adjust in a big condo bldg w/ no april. yeah, i know. boo HOO!!! it's TRUE! (TROO) brian is an ARTIST, obviously--he like went to school for it and everything
this is all taking place at the st. louis artists' guild. i had never been there (though april and i lived like walking distance) ...'til friday's wedding bash for april and brian. i'm so glad they continued the celebration (brought it back home) cuz i missed what looked like the funnest wedding ever in colorado, near breckinridge in sept. silly job! silly opening week! like they need me!! seriously, come on!!
