Happy July 4th, for whatever reason you celebrate.

It's a good thing I found a bed to buy, as my back has decided the current arrangements no longer suit. I got one of the old dorm beds from UW Surplus; we pick it up on Saturday during the auction. Inexpensive, sturdy, and a good furniture solution for my smallish room. Not to mention that it can be assembled at three different heights, and if my estimate is correct I will be able to put it up against my wall without blocking the strangely-situated heater. I don't use the heater to warm my room, but it would be nice to avoid occasionally cutting myself on its corner in my sleep.

It's a single bed. I am a single person. If that changes, I can revisit the situation. I am kind of doubtful it will, as my motivation to connect with people intimately is at an all time low. OK Cupid, where I still apparently have a profile, keeps sending me notes that someone is checking me out! and I should go see what's what as they are an excellent match. My response has been yeah, whatever and when I have gone to look it hasn't seemed worth the effort, even when they sound interesting. I feel socially worn out after a day like yesterday, where I did three whole things outside the house; odds of me starting to date are beyond-basement low. Besides, it's a dorm bed. It's probably already seen more action than I am likely to. (Note to self: order plastic mattress cover ASAP.)
