Moving Day

My belongings in easy to transport containers.

Updating has been difficult lately. Mostly because I've moved! I'm now about 5 blocks further away from the hosue I grew up in. Every year I seem to go 5 more blocks down 8th ave.

Getting all of our stuff into this new house was a chore. Andrew and myself have just a tad too many things to throw in a bag and deliver to a new homestead. It would have been an impossible task if it weren't for a few friends who showed up in the nick of time to lend a hand.

My good friend Jason was the first to show up and stayed with us all day and into the night. This is the 3rd time he's done this and all he's ever asked for was lunch and dinner. (and beer - which I still owe him) My brother was around for a little while and helped move my television into our van. It was a gift that I've been paying for ever since. While beautiful (HD, good speakers, lots of inputs) it's about 300 pounds of suffering, that moves once a year. It took a few hours before we moved it out of the van. Caroline showed up a bit later and immediatly called for backup. Both Caroline and Tina moved box after box well into the night. I'm fairly certian I'm slightly responcible messing up their plans for the next two days, school and work come secondary when you're as tired as they were when they left. Late comers were Jeremy, my Mother and Mike, who helped get some of the details (and heavy lifting) that we were missing after hours of labor.

The entire night ended (for most people) with a lovely diner at my favorite restraunt Two Boots. Thanks to my Father many delicious dishes were had by all of us. We were tired, hungry, and grumpy and it made the night good again.

Thank you everybody who helped. I'm still sore, but I would have been broken if it weren't for you. Me and Andrew are getting the place setup and will have a housewarming in a few weeks. Much free food for everyone.

Even today as I write this, I still have other boxes left to move. I also figure my moving karma slightly lacking, I've helped a few people in my time, but I think after 3 moves in 3 years I need to give a little bit more back. Just remember, if you helped me, you've now got positve moving Karma, it's going to come in handy one day.

PRESS DOWN FIRMLY, YOU ARE MAKING 4 COPIES

Rummaging though some old files I had left at my Godfather's house (a former residence) I found what was left of my Father's educational folders from my childhood. Why I have these files is beyond me, they seem like something that should belong in a …

Kings Highway

I used to hate Kings Highway. It runs from roughly north/south on the east side of brooklyn and swerves left and right, up and down, and grows from 2 lanes to 6 and back again. It just got in the way most of my life. But now I've got a job on it and …

Word to the wise

I've got 5 computers that have to be on and chugging tonight to finish a job. The hum is defining. I'm only doing this work for a friend, but one day I'll need to make sure my office isn't next to my bedroom.

What's in a blog

So I finish this big fight with my brother. It was needless and fruitless and it drove me nuts. The cause of all the madness, me trying to help my father.

Go figure.

So I did some good stuff today to unwind. I got to hang out with a very good friend …

Boom!

I'm sitting on my porch with the two good cats. I'm going over mail and BOOM! Some engine starts and sends all the geese, and baby ducks wild! (Yes we now have at least one family of baby ducks!)

I'm going to try and find the ducklings tomorrow and t…

Toaster Oven

I got a Toaster Oven for $5 at the Goodwill store. I don't know if everyone knows this but I've been wanted a toaster oven for a long time. Its like an oven with the convenience of a toaster. I can now make my toasted sandwiches with out having to he…

Housing

Well our fucking landlord wanted to up the rent to $360 per person (didn't matter who was living there). With the same for the security deposit. If he didn't want us living there he should have said something and not pulled this bull shit. Tomorrow I…

Parking

So I had to park in a spot between two Suv's one of which had a ticket on it (for not moving during the alternate side parking I'd suspect). The spot was tiny and I bumped both suv's multiple times and even tried to move the one behind my car. (Thank…

Thinkless.org

"Also, I was standing in Target today and I almost started shooting people, but then I remembered I was real." - In reference to playing to much GTA: Vice City on Thinkless.org

I used to play GTA3 all day and then when driving on the road I'd size up…

Bad day, good day

I had a good weekend hanging out with bill and his girlfriend. (Sarah too) I had never met her before but I told him that I approve. (I do.)

The next day I spent with Rowan University. I had a bad time and I didn't even finish everything that I neede…

A quicky dictionary

I was in New York this weekend. I've got a bunch to say but I'll do it later.

For now just know that I got a new pair of shoes and that they came with a free dictionary. Gotta love New York. Oh and got to love Poky too.
