Only one box left

Got a lot of unpacking done today, and some other move-in stuff. Bought a medicine cabinet and mounted it on the bathroom wall - can't believe they built a bathroom without one - but had a brain fart and forgot to fill it with the stuff in the box on the bathroom floor, which is why I got the cabinet in the first place - to get that box emptied and into the recycle bin.

Also put the shelves into the bookcase - stupid movers lost two of the pegs which hold the shelves in place so I picked up a small packet of those at Orchard Supply. They were too big until I attacked the bookcase with a 1/4" drill. That cleared the way for unpacking about 15 boxes of books, photos, maps, postcards, scrapbooks, sheet music, and various odds and ends. So now the computer room is clear of boxes. Yay.

Pet peeve: people who don't know how to spell the sound we make when cheering.
"Yay" is the word which rhymes with "Play"
"Yeah" doesn't exactly rhyme with any other English word I know, but almost rhymes with "air".
Way too many people on LJ use "Yeah" for both.

Opened up the package of transverse rods which I was planning on hanging livingroom and bedroom curtains with, only to discover that 72" is not as wide as I thought it was. I can use one in the livingroom, just barely, but need something twice as wide for the bedroom.

Got one out of three calendars hung. Also need to hang a dozen or so pictures and posters. Next week. Because if things go as planned, in about 8 hours I'll be en route with a friend to the Half Moon Bay pumpkin festival. I don't think I've ever gone. Will bring my camera.
