Hauled a lot of stuff out to the dumpster tonight, made two trips. First load was a lot of Styrofoam which I did not want to toss because it is expensive to buy, but I don't plan on doing much more on eBay, and just plain forgot to ask if anyone I knew wanted it. Also threw out a clothes hamper on wheels, won't be needing that at the new place (I have small bins which will be better). And a ton of old photos and frames from when I was just starting to show my work at con art shows, and have since gotten bitch-slapped by the clue fairy regarding reasonable display sizes and frames and such. I still need to ditch some tubes, but while looking through that rack I found four 2008 The Day The Earth Stood Still posters, picked up at a con's trailer park, I guess. May bring one those to the wedding for my nephew.
Also packed up everything on the livingroom walls, and in the TV stand. And a lot of stuff on the coffee table. Found some items I did not know I had.
Cooling off from that now. After I'm done online I'll attack the camera gear in this room, and along with it the stuff on top of the filing cabinet, which is also mostly camera gear. Filters and such. I need to go to an office supply place and get file boxes to pack the stuff in the filing cabinet.
As I suspected there was one major address change I forgot. Kaiser. Did that at work. Paypal still won't authorize the new address on the credit cards.
Work was busy. A cow-orker loaned me two machines which were set up for a series of complicated tests I had on my plate, and I plodded through those. Left one running overnight which needed more than just a quick "yes, it works".
Went to Sizzler for lunch. Salad bar is good, the dessert choices have expanded too. There was a party of Tongans. Still trying to figure out how four of them fit into a booth.
On the way home from work I stopped at Safeway and poured my coins into the Coinstar machine. They have improved it - it's a lot faster than it was the last time I used it (about 6 months ago) and the coin feed didn't jam on me. Mostly pennies, nickels and dimes, but some quarters. $43 onto my Starbucks card. If you ask for cash, they charge a fee, and the other options were places I don't shop, and Amazon, which I did not want to share my info about.
Heard at work when Steve Jobs died. He was definitely someone who changed the world. He was Apple's Bill Gates (and Woz was their Paul Allen). The buzz around the office, after the obvious "he died too young" and "so sad for his family" was "when you have more money than you can count, why keep working?"
Plans for tomorrow:
Pack up the kitchen.
Pack up what can be packed in the downstairs closet (the movers won't take laundry or cleaning liquids).
Consider packing up the old family photos. I did that once to move them from Seattle, don't know why I want the movers to do it.
