Misc. Updating

So I got a Spotify account thanks to one of my Facebook friends, and it's... actually pretty swanky. I mean, there's the whole having to listen to brief commercials between every 3-5 songs or so, but on the other hand, it's free, and the commercials are just for other music, so that's cool. And having the ability to switch fairly seamlessly between my music collection and their streaming one is really convenient.

I'm participating in sihaya09's care package swap this year and super-excited, both to shop for my giftee (because when we moved, we moved minutes away from a precious, quaint downtown area with lots of cool little stores, and I'm dying to check it out, so having an excuse is awesome) and to see what I get in the mail.

Umm... soooo yeah, most of you I talk to on Facebook, but for those I don't, we finally got our house at the end of August (we bought it in July but didn't move in 'til end of August, which is cool because the old owners paid us rent). It's an awesome house with a large yard, a small lake (or big pond, depending on how you look at it), and surrounded by woods, but right near bigger, more developed neighborhoods and maybe a block away from the local middle and high schools, so we get privacy but we're right there in civilization too. The cats took a little while to adjust, and they still don't really go to the bottom floor on their own (except to hide), but they're happy. I can't wait to be done moving all of our stuff in - the bright side of moving locally is that we can take our time hefting our things from our parents' houses to ours, but the downside is that we can take our time, so just when I finally get everything squared away, a new wave of stuff comes. It's exciting, but daunting, and the financial aspect is terrifying, but so worth it.

Thaaat's about it? I'm excited about Halloween coming up. I wish I had eleventy gazillion dollars just to spend on Halloween decorations, but this year that money would be better spent on little unimportant things like, um, furniture and cookware and lightbulbs and whatnot. Sigh. Anyone wanna go see Paranormal Activity 3 with me when it comes out?
