where the cheese at?

so i've moved eh. up 15 floors in the same building. longest 2 days of my life, but finally it's done.

well, the moving part is done. now for the unpacking. i need for the world to transform into a Jetsons like reality full of helper robots and moving sidewalks. it would have been SO helpful considering the new place is at the end of a very long hallway and when you're toting a box stuffed with several computers, cables and computer-like accessories with one hand and a couple of garbage bags of clothes with the other.

i'm actually quite amazed at how much stuff i've managed to collect over the years and have made a commitment to start getting rid of stuff as soon as i can find it under the stacks of boxes. sometime over the next couple of months i will be eBay-ing large quantities of hockey and baseball cards from the 70s, 80s and early 90s and lots of HotWheels cars from the early 80s to late 90s

you want pictures? too bad. camera's packed yo.

and the place is in such a state that it's actually quite common to say to ourselves "where's the cat?" and know that he will have disappeared within the apartment for several hours, leaving no trace of where he may be or may have been.

so far the casualties of the move have been few in number, but large in cost. we finally decided to trash the old couch (sofa, whatchamacallit) and the old bed, substituting the bed for the much more comfortable air mattress temporarily.

and now (rather than work) i shall begin calling all of the companies that want money from me in order to change my address with them.
