Note to self:   It is not a fun game to try and identify which living, breathing things you pull out of the refrigerator actually used to be edible. Next time, clean out the fridge BEFORE you move to the new place. On the other hand, you could just start producing penicillin...





Note to everyone else:   I lied. It kinda is fun to try to identify the fuzzy objects I've found.

Just for the fun of it, I thought I'd post some pics of the monster spider I found while packing the other night in the old house... A few other random pics, too, for your amusement (including the neurotic parakeet, Kolya, and some cow art!)

Pics Here )

Moving a sleeper sofa by yourself is NOT a good idea!

Furniture arrived yesterday. The delivery guys pointed to the living room area and said "It's going there?" I told them it was and it would probably be easiest to bring it in through the garage, since the living room is right off the garage. So I go in and open the garage door and the delivery guy says "We'll bring it right here" (meaning the garage). I said it would probably be easiest to just bring it in, but he insisted that it would be easier to unpack the furniture in the garage and then bring it in. Stupid me, I hadn't brought any money to bribe the delivery dickheads to bring it IN to the house. So they dumped it all in the garage. All 8 pieces.

I managed to haul all the pieces for the bed in and up the stairs (headboard, footboard, frame, boxspring and mattress). I also got the sofa and loveseat into the family room- unwrapped and looking gorgeous. Then I tried to bring the sleeper sofa in.

Holy mother of bejeezus. First, it's heavy as hell. Ridiculous of me to try to be all butch and drag it in myself. Second, the doorframe wasn't wide enough. We'll just say that I spent a good 1/2 hour or more pulling, pushing, and body slamming the damn thing to try and make it fit. Sadly I did not have the proper tools to take the door off it's hinges, so I'll have to attempt that today or tomorrow. 

Woke up this morning with every muscle in my body screaming at me. In an odd way, it kind of feels good now... Don't even ask me to get into the psychology of why that is.

I also got a random text message at 2:30 in the morning. What really tripped me out was that it was an exact copy of a message the same person sent to me over a week ago. Neither of us seem to be able to figure out why that happened.

Oh yeah... I'm getting a new computer.. It should show up any day now and I am soooooo friggin' excited. I can't believe the sweet system I was able to create and buy. Killer video and sound cards, backup hard drive.... the works! It's been so long since we've bought a computer (I believe it was 1999?), which is complete torture for a geek like me who wants to download and run everything on the planet. So thanks, Dell!

Today it's more work on the house ( can't decide which one yet!), then have to be at the center for pizza and movie night. At least we'll all get to chill out and watch something gay... I need some mindless entertainment...

Oy... so much going on lately... And, no, mamma-lah, I have not been eating enough lentils as of late. I'll try to make more of a conscious effort  :P

The plan today was to start moving some things over to the new place. The lawn over there needs to be cut, too. Of course, I got up at 9AM and the temperature was already 80 outside. Now it's 85... wtf??? Maybe I'll just clean around the current house and go find some more boxes for packing.

New furniture should be delivered tomorrow. It will be nice to have a REAL couch to flop onto, a REAL bed to crash in. Friggin' air mattress deflated again last night. I practically had to do gymnastics to get out of the bed frame.

Oh yeah- I got a new icon. Some of you should appreciate this one.

Ok, off to begin working on the insanity that is my house...
