As of yesterday, I’d visited my new studio twice and never noticed something…until I looked at a picture…
See this photo of the kitchen? What is missing?
There’s no oven or stove! Can you believe it?! I was so occupied with making sure the closet and bathroom were big enough, I didn’t even notice the kitchen!
That shows you how into cooking I am!
Darnit, though, I have new pots and pans… I guess I won’t become a better cook while I live here. It’s going to be salads, canned soup, sandwiches, cereal, microwave dinners, and takeout.
Wouldn’t it have been funny if I had lived there for like, two weeks and got up to make spaghetti and got out my new pot and filled it with water and salt and was like, “Hey, wait a minute….”
My mom got me a “Pasta boat.” It’s this plastic thing where you microwave pasta in it, and it’s vaguely in the shape of a cruise ship. I’ll have to try it out—because I’m Italian and I gotta have my pasta! But I can also always go over to my parents’ house and make lasagna and freeze it.
Anyway, I’m mostly moved in, but I need to buy specially-shrunken-sized furniture to fit the place.
The studio is really cute—it’s two rooms, plus a bathroom that’s large enough for me to blow-dry my hair and all that.
So! Also! Tokyo—! I’ll be going on Tuesday. Press trip…I get back on Sunday. I’ll fill you in when I return!
