I’m Moving Today

Right now I should be “packing,” which everyone tells me is the first step in the moving process. For some reason, I haven’t been able to convince myself that this “packing” will take much longer than half an hour when I finally get around to doing it. So up until right now, I’ve been planning on how to pack, but not actually “packing.”

It turns out all along I was just lazy. Who knew?

Unfortunately I can’t stop watching “The Cosby Show.” First the one where he makes the atomic chili and now the one where he’s trying to fix the tiles in the shower and they keep popping off. HIGH COMEDY.

But hey, at least it’s not going to start raining in five minutes. And at least Desmond Dekker is still alive.


my favorite cosby is the one when all the men give birth to giant sammiches. pure genius.

good luck with the move, fella. you're gonna need it.

the first step in the moving process is 'denial,' silly. followed by 'anger,' 'depression,' 'resignation,' 'acceptance,' and finally 'booze porn.'

of course, these are also the steps involved with coping with the fact that I NOW IMAGINE YOUR GRANDFATHER'S FACE EVERY TIME I COPULATE.

thanks a lot, 'friend.'

I'm just happy I can start off my holiday weekend with two pictures of you. :)

Good luck with the move. My suggestion is chuck it all and buy new stuff. Or hire someone to do it for you.

It looks like you decorate well. You should probably strong-arm TG into letting you have creative control in the new place, even if she's lived there for years (or whatever).

P.S. Nice arms.

Your (old) apartment looks sick... I'm jealous.

I love how Cliff makes that face at Clair whenever he want to get a's so darn cute!

Packing is overrated. When I bought my house two years ago I waited until the day before and the DAY OF to pack.

Have a cocktail and chill the fuck out...these things always have a way of working themselves out.

THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING?? I get out of work early to help you move boxes that aren't even packed?!

Let's forget this whole move in thing. The homeless man who pees in the alley across the street will make just as good of a roommate, and he's already packed.

Judging by the photos, you haven't spent enough time planning to pack. When we see photos of you weeping and/or ripping your hair out, then I think you've spent enough time planning and are ready to move on to the actual packing.

You pay people, and they do it for you.

I do this with everything in life.

I've packed a three bedroom house and two car garage full of stuff and moved it 6 times in the last ten years. I hate moving... and I'm a packrat to boot.

Keep the stuff you'll need all together in a box near the door and leave it for last. Make sure you have some toilet paper, soap and some snacks in there, too.

Shove everything else into boxes - I get mine from the liquor store - and be glad you don't have to carry everything down 63 stairs like my last move.

I'm not moving again until I can afford to pay someone to carry it all back up those damned stairs.

Good luck!

God I'm glad I'm not you.
P.S. I like your sweater/sweatshirt. Can you FedEx it to me before you start packing?

By Blogger Leezer, at 5:39 PM  

My Fav Cosby episode (if you care, I'm guessing no) is the one where they turn the house into the 'real world' for Theo who thinks he doesn't need to go to college. Funny stuff.

Hire people to pack for you.

hey... it was your new years resolution to post more pics of yourself, wasn't it? well, mission accomplished! and, i have to agree with CB - thanks! :)
BTW, you've got a fantastic apartment - why the heck are you moving?! luv the artwork and [wink wink] nice arms. TG is a lucky woman! :)
Good luck with the move!

Packing is always put on hold when there are a shit load of Cosby Shows on. I like the one when Theo and Cockroach go on the show Dance Mania, which is bassically Soul Train, and Cockroach gets in and Theo doesn't, then Theo shanks Cockroach with a rusty steak knife.

invest in toilet paper, trust me, girls use ALOT of tp so dont get all uppity at the cost of tp on the 'shared' grocery bill!

not sure if you care but the 1st pic you have a KELSO'ish (ashton kutcher) look about you!

By Blogger Shopaholic KitKatWoman, at 12:48 AM  

wow, two "nice arms" in there. i had, up till this point, thought that men only thought that women were checking out their arms. *incredulous* Really?

i think personality profiles whould include a question that asks when moving, how close to the move the pack starts. it tells alot.

have you and the gf had a myers-briggs type test?

I hate to admit it but looking at these pictures of your apartment and knowing you haven't starting packing yet makes me nervous.

By Blogger Smartypants, at 10:33 AM  

You're totally right, packing takes no time at all. Allow about 5 minutes, and then just grab all your whiskey bottles and syringes and toss them into a paper bag. That's what I do, anyway, and it's never taken more than a few minutes.

By Blogger karla, at 1:30 PM  

You haven't started packing????

I haven't either.

By Blogger Janet, at 9:02 PM  

Ahhh, the Cosby Show. I love how there were about 10 different grandfathers and grandmothers.

Packing sucks but unpacking is like Christmas. I always find things that I'd forgotten that I have.

By Anonymous Johnson, at 8:06 AM  

What the hell would you pack? You're not allowed to have your own things anymore. ;)

By Blogger shirley, at 9:28 AM  

See if you can take advantage of the guest worker program to hire some immigrants to do it for dirt cheap.

By Blogger Cash, at 1:32 PM  

I have vowed to myself that I am not moving again until I own my own home, and can afford to hire munchkins to pack and move all my crap for me.
Ah, the Cosby Show...gets me everytime!

By Anonymous abigailroad, at 11:06 AM  

I feel for you - I moved once a year for the past four years. I always get to the stage where I am surrounded by boxes and think that I never going to get out. Planning makes no difference - just watch a few more Cosby shows then go into a packing frenzy when the truck is outside. You need the sense of urgency to get it done. Good luck!

By Blogger Just, at 4:18 PM  

Holy crap, a Cosby Show episode where a man is made to look stupid and ineffective? Stop it! No way!
