We all knew there would surely be some negative repercussions to my getting a camera phone, and here's your gentle introduction to the hell that will surely follow.
I wrote some months ago about our Louisville crash pad, and it's time we were all formally introduced.
This is the alleyway that leads behind the main house (on the left) to the old garage "Carriage House" in the back. Notice that nobody ever seems to clean the alleyways here, the leaves and grass and sticks and garbage and so on having accumulated for a century or more. But it gives the place an old-world kind of charm. And I love the brick streets.
Here's the dump itself, with my new (tiny) car alongside as a scale indicator. Notice the lovingly-cultivated trees growing out of the gutters above. Classy. Moving right along, we'll head inside.
This is as much of the place as can be captured on camera. I tried to snap the bedrooms upstairs, but they're too small to show any detail. This is one end to the other. Notice the lovely decor: plastic lawn chair for playing Halo on the dust-covered X-box and third-hand TV; walls covered with aircraft teaching diagrams; Nordic-Track brand clothes drying rack; high-class folding table and chairs (with my 64 oz. glutton-master Diet Coke mug perched atop).
Same room looking the other way. One of my roommates in characteristic pose. Note second folded Nordic Track brand clothes drying rack behind him.
The nerve center of our culinary adventure. The stove is brand new, the owner having decided the old one was responsible for months of pungent gas smells and beyond redemption. Nice to have a new appliance to pile unused pans atop. We should all pause here to express our thanks that the phone camera is only 1.3 megapixel, as greater detail would reveal that this kitchen has not been cleaned thoroughly in five years. Five.
Lastly, here is one of the 50 park entrances, the one closest to the crash pad. Note the lush greenery. We walk here most every day. I wanted a picture of my beloved Qdoba for this post, but I keep forgetting I have a camera with me.
Ah well, we have to have something to look forward to!
