my internet is on the fritz today so my apologies if posts get jammed up or things go dark for a while. after many weeks of blood, sweat and tears my stupid carrie curtains are finally up. it required: brick nails, a special brick bit, three different types of anchors and a whole lot of repositioning. apparently our walls are made of paper in some spots (well, not paper but something like a thick cardboard) and then brick/cement in others. these walls were not meant to hold curtains but i was determined to get them up if it was the last thing i did. so with some help from the staff at tarzian downstairs my marimekko curtains are now up. and ac was even nice enough not to complain about the pink.
