I have met procrastination, and she is me

I'm supposed to be packing today, because the movers are coming on Thursday and the house is sooooo not ready for them. We have loads of random crap everywhere that has to be dealt with: plastic bags of candle stubs, odd gloves, cracked pots, old shoes, clothes we no longer wear, ancient jars of herbs in the back of the cabinet, mysterious keys that unlock who-knows-what, dessicated magic markers, old cans of paint, and oh, the swarming hordes of dust bunnies...

Le sigh.

I'm also supposed to be writing an article for the next issue of Carpe Nocturne, which is due on Friday, but I can't seem to come up with the hook to make it all fall into place.

Instead of doing ANY of that, I went and signed up for this, because the mods put out a plea for a few more folks to ease their matching, and because nursedarry taunted me into it:


happy_trekmas is open for signups until October 4th!

It may already be too late for the desiccated markers since you are in the midst of moving, but there's an easy way to recycle markers of all kinds which is good for everybody.

Good luck with your move!

Throw away the old keys. They might unlock You-Know-Who.

Best of luck with the move.

Ha! Good point :) Or Dracula's coffin, or Montresor's wine cellar...

Ah, too bad the fest is only for TOS and Reboot; I might be tempted otherwise. Actually, though, that's probably a good thing -- I don't really have time for more fests.

Good luck with the move! I'm glad you'll have the fun of a new house, but moving sucks. You're right that the big stuff isn't usually the problem: it's all the little odds and ends that are absolutely endless. I usually don't have any idea where most of that stuff came from or why I keep it, but it just won't let itself be gotten rid of.

Actually it's for any iteration of Star Trek. It's a fun fest and they do it every year -- maybe you can join in the fun next year.

I am convinced that inanimate objects exposed to dust and darkness mutate and breed. That's the only possible explanation for some of the very weird stuff we are finding...

Oh poor thing. Moving is stressful. You'll soon be enjoying your new place. Resist!

I blame the first law of thermodynamics. Creating order out of chaos requires energy, which explains the stress :)

Procrastination, also a known hobby by many. Good luck with the move!
