16:26 (27.09.10) - Moving hell: almost finished!
I've been offline for a week or so in Moving Hell. I just got my computer set back up today.
- Caught up on LJ friends page
- Caught up on two other blogs
- Caught up on webmaster, tutoring, and job-hunt email accounts
- Caught up on Ubuntu updates (which is SO MUCH FASTER with broadband internet - it is a whole new kind of thing to be doing now)
- Check personal email
- Check DW friends page
- Check DamnPortlanders
- Change address with post office
- Pay student loan
- Make DW/LJ flocked posts updating address and phone numbers
- Change address with dial-up ISP
- Change address with college I do not have loans with
- Change address with whatever other online places I've told where I live for some reason
- Check other blogs I read
- Get Flash working now that I have broadband
- Find new time wasting things to do on the internet that involve images and/or videos
- Play FreeCiv for weeks on end while forgetting to shower, let alone job hunt
Some of those things might not get done. We'll see which!
(Now I have to go throw more random possessions in the van and hope that the Carpet Vacuuming Elves will visit in the night.)

22:49 (27.09.10) - Moving hell: entropy and clutter elves
So, I threw another load of miscellaneous Things I Own into the van tonight. In the process, I found several things that I didn't realize I owned but are kind of useful, such as a leatherman tool. I also FINALLY managed to find the missing 2 DVD sleeve for one of my box sets and was able to pack it intact, increasing the odds of my being able to watch that season of 90210 straight through at some point in the future should I choose to do so.
However, in the battle against entropy and the clutter elves, there are always casualties. As I was unloading the van, I noticed two small cards on the floor, clearly from a memory game. This is slightly odd as I remember packing my memory game with the rest of my childhood games that are not actually fun to play as an adult back when I was packing things for the storage unit. (I plan to get them out again when I have children someday - most of what I have are Ravensburger games that still have all of their pieces and are in good condition. This is what happens when you are an only child and only get to play board games with adults.)
Upon closer inspection, here are the cards:
