And we actually picked something! And we happened to choose a day when Art Van had a big sale/promotion thingy going on, so we'll have the sofa set (there are actually three pieces) for free for the first year and a half. And then we really have to pay them off or we get hit with 21 % interest.
We also picked out a really neat coffee table, one of those kinds where the top lifts up on a hinge so it becomes tall enough to eat off of when you're sitting on the sofa. My brother has one and we've wanted one ever since seeing his.
This is the first time we've ever bought new furniture, barring our beds. It's kind of exciting.
In other news, the one wall is all painted with light blue base and a sponged-on dark blue that gives it a sense of depth. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I painted it yesterday before work so my right hand looked all zombie-ish all day, with blue paint in my cuticles and under my nails.
And I finally found time to look at the ConFusion program book, which is very close to done and coming along nicely, and I've got almost a whole day to work on my presentation for tomorrow's interview. Their presentation guidlines suggested they prefer a portfolio or project review so I've scratched the other ideas and am presenting my thesis work. I even know what I'm going to wear. I'm feeling pretty good about that.
