See, it’s sort of a funny thing. I’m going to work this morning, then leaving at 12:30 — meet with my new landlord at 1, sign paperwork, all that jazz. Then MOVING. But I still have to go back to work tomorrow, because it was a non-negotiable sort of day. And I’m not super confident […]

maybe Armando

For reasons I don’t completely understand, this month I am the keeper of the workplace Awesome Armadillo. (For other reasons I don’t completely understand, “this month” started on the 27th.) Pictured here, with some friends so it doesn’t get lonely on my desk at work: I’m told it is my job to provide the Awesome […]

what about now? now? now?

My game of the week: WHERE’S MY STUFF? *The in-house version of this game requires me to remember which box I put things in. Funny how my ‘packing logic’ doesn’t seem to correspond to my ‘finding logic.’ *The broader version of this game involves me checking my email approximately 8,000 times a day to see […]

J-Monday 9 of 9

Monday, July 28th, 2014

LAST J-MONDAY OF 2014!!! To end with a bang, I present to you: THE JABBERWOCKY Why the Jabberwocky? 1. It was the only thing I could think of. 2. Still less scary than the John Dory fish. 3. This brilliant quote via wikipedia: “Jabberwocky has been translated into many languages. The translation might be difficult […]

packing lessons learned

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

1. 30 gallon totes are awesome! They can fit a *ton* of stuff. Downside: there is virtually no way said tote can be simultaneously A) full; and B) liftable. 2. Things that unexpectedly take up a huge amount of space: hangers! Such an incredibly awkward shape/size/everything! 3. I budgeted a certain amount for “start-up.” It […]

fanfic Friday!

Friday, July 25th, 2014

In light of the latest kerfluffle over fanfic (Comic-Con, I’m looking at you, and it is a judging look!), I would like to reaffirm: I love fanfic. And I love Teen Wolf fanfic. Do you know how many episodes of Teen Wolf I’ve seen? Zero. And yet the number of fics I’ve read is ::cough:: […]

T-minus 7 days

Packing Stage: I miss my things. It’s not like they’re gone; just in boxes. And those boxes are right here! But opening them up and taking stuff out feels like a step backwards. [On a note that’s only related to the title — I wish that show would come out on netflix. (Seven Days, in […]

maybe I should have been more efficient

Packing Stage: I’m running out of boxes faster than I’m running out of stuff to put in them.

advice I’ve ignored

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

One piece of advice I’ve read many times about moving is to not move anything you should really just get rid of. If you don’t actually want that old t-shirt, or stack of novels, or school project, or whatever, just toss it, instead of moving it and then tossing it. Conceptually, I find this to […]
