Today I got pulled over by undercover police for driving around Bushwick with a black man in my car. How sad is that? It’s 2010 and apparently people still think it’s sketchy for a white woman to be hanging around a black man. Luckily, I didn’t get any tickets and such.
Day 1- Where: Hicksville, Long Island - Ikea, Panera Bread, Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, and Trader Joes
What: 4 pairs of socks, 3 bar stools, 2 candles, ceiling fan, bathroom rug, corner shower caddy, groceries and other assorted items were purchased.
Activities: Shopping, driving, VW Beetle Tetris, rooftop hangs and drinking with Fitz.
Day 2- Where: Brooklyn, New York
What: Zipcar trip to Ikea. Purchases = Expedit bookshelf, expedit desk component, 5 cube inserts (2 one drawer inserts, 2 open door inserts, and one two drawer insert), 2 glass jars, 2 picture frames, and felt pads to go under the furniture.
Activities: Multiple trips up and down the stairs, assembling Ikea furniture, ceiling fan installation and pasta making.
Big thanks to my wonderful boyfriend, who installed the ceiling fan, assembled most of the furniture and was a great sport throughout the whole weekend!
