Moving On Up
Geekent went to the Neil Gaiman signing at Chapters yesterday. While Gaiman was and is one of my favorite authors, I would not have had the patience necessary to have met the man. Read about Graig’s experience at the signing.
One nice thing about moving? You find stuff. Case in point – my guitar slide, which I lost… god – three, four months ago? And I was just about to go buy a new one. That alone makes this whole exercise worthwhile.
Thanks to the help of Will and his minivan, I was able to get the bulk of my crap moved to the new place this afternoon in under two hours. Fantastic. I brought a largish piece of carpet for the living room which had been sitting in the storage locker for about five years, and has about that much dust caked into it. My allergies are having conniptions. I am going to have to vacuum that mofo like a… mofo. What’s left on the moving itinerary? Tomorrow I head back home to grab my microwave and kitchen supplies and probably bring that and clothes to the new pad, probably the computer and remaining guitar shit. Tuesday morning my dad will show up bright and early with the van to move furniture since I have to be there between 11 and 2 or some such nonsense to wait for Mr Cable Guy. Dragging this whole experience over four days may take longer, but I think it’s greatly reduced the amount of stress involved.
