moving sucks

I don't think I'm the first person to ever say this, but moving SUCKS. Especially when you live all by yourself and have no one to help you out. Boxes and boxes of books and DVDs and CDs and miscellaneous crap I have around my little shack are being carefully shoved into my little car and driven over to my dad's house.

The bulky items... (sigh)... I'm not quite sure what's going to happen with my bed, my treadmill, my 32" tv and other large-ish furniture. I've rented a truck for the weekend, and my dad has volunteered to help me out. But he's old (64 today, as a matter of fact), and rather curdmudgeonly - so I can't help but think that it's going to be a nightmare of disasterous proportions.

I imagine him yelling "god dammit" every three minutes and getting all red-faced and his chain-smoking making all my furniture all stinky and, ultimately, the collapse of western civilization as a whole.

(Deep breath in... deep breath out...)

things people have said

Working at universal. Pretty cool if anything opens up let me know. Even if it's not in post. I'm working at MCS again and let me tell you something, it is completely different.
Sorry about your move, I'm moving as well and it is a big pain in the a**.

True Dan is gone, Sam left back east but surprise after 6 months he's back. Kurt Godel moved to Debuque iowa and is getting married. We got a new V.P. he seems cool but only time will tell. The director of operations is doing alright, it is going to be interesting to see how she handles it when it's busy and it is getting really busy.
