Traps and sleep and all things deep

Well, I’ve been in my new place for 3 weeks now and am still wrestling with my room. Pretty much everything is away – although not in an exactly organised fashion – I’ll get to that later – but it’s away. The only thing to get done now is to hang the bass-traps up. At the moment they are all just stacked in my room in a great pile. It’s a pretty daunting task at the best of times, but add to that the sheer height of my ceilings and it becomes even more serious. The ceilings in my room are around 3.5 meters high, so nothing to sniff at really – and in all honesty, no one I know has a ladder high enough to even reach up there. I mean, my wardrobe (which is meant to be attached to the ceiling also) is relying on pure pressure at the moment…..not such a great thing.

Anyway, as soon as I have located a ladder that will reach up there, I’ll ask a friend to help me hang them – I mean, I’ve helped along the way with every aspect of his bass traps – from creation to mounting – so hopefully he’s willing to lend a hand once again. Then I will actually be able to fit a bed in there…..

Which brings me to my next point – my bed. The location of which is still unknown to me – I ordered it quite some time ago now and still have not received it, very sad. I would love nothing more than to sleep on a nice firm futon mattress, but up until now it has either been a choice between a bit of a soft-ass mattress on the floor or sleeping directly on the couch. I mean, both have their advantages, don’t get me wrong…and I have been known to accidentally crash on the couch at times, but it’s nothing you’d really want to do on a daily basis.

But then again, until the bass-traps are hung, it would be very difficult to fit a bed in there anyway….grrrrrr

Anyway, I guess I had a pretty darn good weekend. It started at White Trash and carried on past a friends place onwards and upwards. I went and saw the Hokusai exhibition on Sunday at Martin Gropius Bau (amongst another couple of museums: Tränenpalast and the Science Center) and really enjoyed the exhibition – as well as the company. It was beautiful weather also – so really just great for wandering around, getting some sun, and ducking in and out of exhibitions.

But that’s the sum of it. There is no more to tell, well, none that I’m prepared to anyway. So that’s it, bugger off now 😉
