The Blues BrothersThe basement is finally nearing completion.  My mom and I started working on this thing over a month ago, and it’s been a slow process, partially because of my prior commitments with school and other things, and partially because my mom is a better procastinator than I am.

With all that said, the painting is done, although not colors I would have picked (I’m hoping to be gone in a year anyway, so I don’t care too much), and my mom finally decided on a carpet she likes, which took her two weeks to do.  The carpet will be installed next week, which is a hassle because everything – the couch, tables, computer desk, chairs, TV, entertainment center, and shelves – will have to be moved.  I can’t wait until that is finished.

I am now in the process of finding posters to order.  I am going to frame movie posters and hang them all over the basement.  I have found and ordered my first poster.  The Blues Brothers.  My mom was trying to get me to go with a classic movie theme and put up posters of films from the 30’s and 40’s.  I refused.  I want movies that I actually like, own, and watch every now and then.  Picky?  Maybe.  But I don’t care.
