Well despite the stove mishap we had earlier the top burners do work, so I'm not going to be relying completely on TV dinners until Tuesday. As I thought the inside of the oven and the burners use different circuits, and the fact that the apartment is not on fire proves my theory. I'm quite glad.

I met up with Krys earlier and we hung out for a while until he left to unpack some more of his place, and then later he came back and we went shopping for dinner. I used part of the rotisserie chicken I bought yesterday to make white bean chili, which he'd never had before.

IT WAS FUCKING DELICIOUS. We added onions and garlic to it and played with the spices, so it's hot but not too hot and no one flavor overpowers it. Krys said it would be good when you're sick since the spice would help clean out your chest cavity. One bowl was also enough to fill me up pretty well, so I'll have to write down the recipe I used with our alterations and give it to him.

Oh, and we have at least 3 servings as leftovers that I'm going to refrigerate and save for later with Nadia and Jen. I also bought this product called "Better Than Bullion" that my mother introduced me to and that makes great soup stock, and I can also make egg drop soup now.

I think I also figured out how to set up the TV in what could liberally be called a living room and leave us closet space. As Krys and I were sitting on the futon (with the horse painting newly hung over it, pictures to come) I saw one of the end tables we had, which I'd left in front of the door, and had a brilliant idea. I took the TV and put it on the lower end, and sure enough it fits. Now all I have to do is get an extension cord so I can hook it up to an outlet in my room through a surge protector and hook up the cable box. I'm actually quite proud of myself on that one, but it'll have to wait for tomorrow.

It also turns out that there's a pharmacy right around the corner, so I'll get my albuterol refilled there. While moving in I was fighting off an asthma attack, but since I'm in an area where I'll have to walk a lot and where there's more pollution it'll be good to have just in case. I haven't had a full fledged attack in months, but better safe than sorry.

And being so close to Fenway Park there are lots of cops on the streets around the park, and I'm glad to see them there. This area's relatively low crime compared to most of Boston, and it's good to know that the cops are keeping an eye out.

Ah, I thought one of the end tables would be one of the things you wanted me to retrieve because there was Too. Much. Stuff.

Would it (with TV) be against the wall by the bathroom/closet? Not sure how you would see it from the futon. I await pictures to get an idea of where things are arranged!

And I'm proud of you for buying a rotisserie chicken with which to make magic from leftovers. You have learned well, Grasshopper. :P I will want a copy of your recipe myself.
