Never Been Kissed :-|
- A highschool remake
of Ever After, with the
Never Been Kissed
This credulity- straining date movie reminded me once again
that, just once, I'd like to go to a costume party where the
guests are all as well-costumed as they are in Hollywood versions
of costume parties.

this month, I mentioned that a bird had come to roost in
our house; this week, the bird was joined by its owner, Alison,
along with half a dozen fish and a whole bunch of her stuff.
Alison has been staying with friends since finishing up grad
school in February, and having imposed on Jen and Michael long
enough, she's decided to live in our guest room for awhile, until
she finds a steady job and gets a place of her own.
Meanwhile, we have this week begun placing orders for the
first batch of games we'll be carrying at Contagious
Dreams, and the inventory warehousing problem this creates
for us has driven us to do something we've been talking about
doing for years: making use of our attic.
We've never been able to do anything with our attic before,
because it lacks a floor and can only be entered through a tiny
entry panel. So we asked Ed, our
friendly neighborhood general contractor, to cut a new, larger
hole in the ceiling and install one of those pull-down ladder
entryways, and to nail down some rough flooring so that we can
store a bunch of boxes up there. Naturally, we'll have to be
careful not to store heat-sensitive junk up there, since attics
tend to get pretty warm in the summertime, but it'll be a lot
less expensive and more convenient than renting a storage space.
Update: Things are going very well, but... we've decided
to slip the schedule a week. Kristin's got the ShopSite
software up and running and has been using it to rebuild the
Looney Labs storefront. When the new store opens, both stores
will be run using the new software, under an overall roof we're
calling the Wunderland Shopping Center. Kristin loves the software,
and the stuff she's built with it so far looks really grand.
However, there's still so much work to be done that we've decided
to give ourselves a little more time... we're moving the opening
date for the new stores back to May 13th. Sorry!
forget to play!
