Listening: Emily Kane by Art Brut just finished, Keep It Up by Fanny Pack is on right now.

Reading (perhaps quality): Guernica: The Biography of a Twentieth-Century Icon by Gijs van Hensbergen

Reading (definitely pulp): Am looking at the pages of old Vogue and New Yorker magazines as I use them for packing material.

Drinking: Lukewarm Earl Grey tea. I need to go warm this stuff up.

Another day of packing ahead of me. This week I've packed rather than gone out, packed half drunk after going out, packed at almost midnight after a date. Had dreams about packing last night, its about all I think about. My living room is a maze of boxes and it all feels really oppressive with the crowding. The bookcase and the sideboard are empty, need to do the coffee table and some odds and ends and the living room is done. Then I only have the dining room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and hall closet to do. Oh and add in some laundry because right now my clothes options are laughably limited.

Damn it, just kill me now.

I've developed two nasty looking cuts from the industrial tape dispenser that Tom/Betsy lent me. Teaches me to go and get enthusiastic with the packing tape.

But seriously, Tom/Betsy and Becky have been absolute lifesavers through all of this. They've brought me a million billion (really) boxes, without them I would have had to have been a lot more persistent with the guy at the ABC store. Really, without them I don't know what the hell I would have done. Cried?

The other interesting part of this whole moving thing is getting rid of the food in the kitchen so I don't have to move it. This morning I had pancakes which is pretty normal. Lunch will be black bean soup which is also fine. But looking at what I actually have in my cabinets I'm a little scared for later in the week.

(later today) Things look no better here but since more things are in boxes I've assured myself that progress has been made. It's Hat Day tonight so I've best get showered and presentable before heading out with D, Fergus, Demmert, Darren, the Fitzpatrick Sisters, and everyone else once we're there at Millie and Al's. Its reassuring to think all of this will be waiting when I get back, its terrifying that this will all be waiting when I get back.

a m. just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): Very much packing and working. Occasionally dating and catching up with people who's coolness I'd momentarily forgotten.

Doing (crafty stuff): Well, packing is both an art and a science!

Wanting: To have all this stuff done.

Anticipating: Moving next weekend. Hurrah!
