The Thinking Viking is sick of this shit. It’s time to get rid of some baggage. The table my ex in-laws gave us. Never eaten a single goram meal off it- truth, not once – I’d give it away if I could, but been too distracted to post a “free stuff” listing on fraking Craigslist. Stuff that’s sat in my closet unused for the whole time I’ve lived here. A box of “important papers” that has stuff that is over twelve years old. Do I need my Community College transcripts? Don’t think so. How do you fold a chainmail shirt? Oh, there’s my t-shirt from the Colorado Avalanche’s opening day game – that’s a keeper. But these random pots and pans that I snagged from next-to-the-dumpster and have used maybe twice in two years? Gone.
But my fish tank? I really set this thing up well – stable ecosystem, happy fish, but ..well.. I have no real emotional attachment, and it’s yet another thing that was part of a failed relationship that ended years ago. Been keeping it just… because the damn fish are still alive….
Spider bites suck. Must have disturbed quite a few in this process – got a nice bite on the left ankle, nothing serious, but it itches more than a mosquito bite and its red and kinda inflamed.
My fingernails are filthy. I’m sore and I smell funky. And my move -out day it going to be the hottest day of the season – joy.
On the plus side, this has made my actually fold all my laundry and sell off half my books – my trashy killer thriller spy and sci-fi rags that I accumulate seemingly without effort. Keeping the goods ones.
Public Storage – first months is $1 – buying me some time to move into a room in a house with a dude and his teenage son, this will save me tons on rent, at least until the new job starts paying me what I am worth – they are realizing now that they got much more than they expected when they brought me on – knew this would happen, and it’s such a cool place that I didn’t mind a lower than desired salary for a while.
OK, mildly buzzed and tired ramblings all done for now, Gonna watch some of the first season of Star Trek Voyager on Netflix and relax.
