movin' on up, movin' on out, tryin' to break free, nothing can stop me

I'll take "Gay Disco" for 500 please: name the group who coined the lyrics in the title of this entry.

I'm supposed to be packing now - haven't started. 'gulp!' Ran around today and got some cleaning supplies for a start. But I also got a cleaner to do most of the dirty work tomorrow so I can simply unpack on Monday after the movers help out. So nice to have the financial flexibility for such help. My back thanks me already.

Here's my front porch off of Vermont Avenue, just south of T and 10th, NW. I'm in that above-ground basement unit, like the hobbit I am.

Living area and bedroom. It's gonna be a tight fit for that queen-size bed of mine. Getting that stinky new plastic smell out of my fabulous shower curtains from Home Rule. Need to find some clever way to conceal that radiator during the summer.

Hey, you are gonna be the new Logan Circle Guy.

Oh, that is a much nicer place. The radiator isn't that unsightly. Your new shower curtain looks like a Twister game!

I may not be the first, but let's try,'What is 'The 'M' people?'

Did you steal those curtains from a clown? Cause if you did, you are the hottest man alive.

Fancy guy.
Do you have your own entrance?
Where do the stairs go?

500 points to Kevin. The stairs go up to the 1st floor unit, you can't really see my hobbit stairs in that picture.

Nice place! Mazel tov!

Maybe a nice folding room divider (or whatever they're called) could hide the radiator and then can be stashed away during the winter?

Oh yeah. It looks so sweet and cozy (and clean). Are you all packed? And no, I can't wait until the housewarming ;)

Ohh nice, it's all in the buzzer timing. Soooo, what can I get with 500 points? I've always wanted one of those dogs you carry in a bag, or Justin from one of those home improvement shows on TLC.

At Logan Hardware I saw some nice decorative metal grids that would work well to cover the radiator. Plenty of air circulation to just leave them up all the time. d.

Congrats on living where there are fewer crack dealers. As memory serves me, you are almost a block from my hairdresser, good hood it has become.
I have about 2-3 British DIY books on making radiator covers so bug me if you want them. I totally recommend BBC's Handy Andy. Yet, my own solution to naked radiators is to throw a nice looking rug on top of them.

What a great place! I'm dying to know how much it is...i live in a basement near Lincoln Park (SE), and my b'f is moving soon to a place near Union Station in NE (eek).

Cograts-let us know what you think of Logan!
