  1. I don't really want to keep the things I'm purging, though. You know that box of wires you have? It contains the original ethernet cable you got with your computer. And all your old speaker wire. I had that, old extension cords, a rotary phone, old, obsolete recording equipment. Then the stuff in my kitchen. I've never had but now want like matching dishes and nice glasses. I have a hodgepodge of stuff in mine, so did my Mom so I'm only taking my favorites and probably shouldn't even bother taking those. I may not. The good, but pricey thing is, my moving company will come and do everything I don't get to. If I don't wrap the mirrors and wall art-they will-but it's all at a cost. So this move WILL get done in time, regardless of my progress. So, it costs more. I'm already hemorrhaging money
  2. I almost fell for one today. "Comcast" called about my modem but then they asked me to go to my computer and type in the windows key + R, I was like, call me later. I called Comcast and they assured me they never call out about modem trouble. I assumed that was the end of it but the scammer actually called me back!
  3. I didn't factor in time to go donate half the shit-I really had no idea of the amount of moving time this would suck up. Somehow, I didn't think I had that much, but again, I'd just moved out of a two-story home before this and I brought so much with me. I wanted to purge even more than I have. I guess I still have a month to keep it up. I'm stressed I won't sell my furniture in time and will have to pay to have it removed. I'm afraid of what will get lost and broken. I hope I can sell my car but keep it til I move (the day after Super Bowl Sunday). And I really am not looking forward to flying with L-Roy and Jesus. I got them gabapentin but I'm still very nervous. And don't get me started on the cost. Good lord. Spam on meth. There's a thought. Again-good lord.
  4. I feel like I'm on an episode of Hoarders! I have to look at every fucking thing before I decide to toss, donate or move it, THEN I have to go donate it-for which I need boxes and then I have to pack the keeps-MORE boxes. Then I have to go to the dump because I don't have compacter friendly trash right now. This bites.
  5. I got some rose sparkling wine and a mani/pedi but I'm moving soon so I didn't really want anything. I bought all my gifts to others from amazon and told them so they can exchange if they want.
  6. Yeah, I learned that during the coverage. I'd just never even registered his name before-the coverage implied he had a big name. I assume it's me
  7. We had holiday fun! I got to see the kitties briefly, I had a stiff adult beverage, we watched excellent holiday TV fare, his kids are awesome-Lyra has the coolest haircut and Eli told me he loves me (the feeling is mutual). I wrapped his wife's presents JAYKIB DON'T FORGET tag, ribbons, bow!! I came home, smoked a bowl and fed my kitties, then watched Arthur Christmas. It was a good 9th day before Christmas.
  8. 'they treat mainstream politics like entertainment' I've noticed this-the same people that called the OJ trial a "show". Can't blame them, really, the way reality programming works. RN, I"m loving having a really small family.
  9. Was this guy mega famous? Thew news coverage here was wall to wall
  10. I'll cut you a deal ;-) TODAY, I"m going over to JacobE'S to drink and wrap presents. I"ma get his kids all hopped up on candy.
  11. In all my old-age scenarios in which I get to actually live, this one hadn't occurred to me.
  12. Now they say the issue is Tampa is non union and I'm a union employee. They haven't even floated the notion of paying me a little less, which I may be willing to accept. But I'm not offering that info. They have encouraged me to "apply" in Tampa, which would mean a huge pay cut and me leaving the union, which I don't really want to do. This is the reason the union is helping me-they feel this is the company's reason for calling us all back to our broadcast markets. I can't rent out my place (HOA) so this is the only way to keep it for my retirement-by moving in 5 and 1/2 years before I really expected to. Everyone else's reasons for moving started with COVID and I'm getting caught in this wave. My bosses signed off on me moving long ago. I'm less than thrilled by knowing I'm moving to FLORIDA. It's so red.
  13. After telling me I CAN, now my company has decided NO< I cannot move to Florida. I've already started selling my things and put a deposit down with a moving company. My union is going to fight for me but I don't see a good outcome
  14. At last this time most people understand Trump's a fucking joke. DeSantis can run and dilute the GOP votes and I'd LOVE to see him ignored outside Florida. I'm part of a few Florida Facebook groups and those people there LOVE him.
  15. I like that idea...guess a double and win the year! Anyone have Gallagher?
  16. I finally talked to my boss about HIS boss allowing me to move to Florida and do Seattle traffic from there. But now they're telling me as post-COVID rules go into effect, I'm going to have to transition to working from the office once I get there. It's SO stupid. My boss uses stability as an excuse when, in reality, all my tech problems have been on my affiliates' ends. Then he cites staff comraderie, which I'm all about but MY co-workers aren't in Florida so what point is it for me to go in there? I'm pissed. I have no leg to stand on-they hired me to work from their studios, so I really can't do anything about it, I'm just mad they can't see the light. I only need this job just under another 6 years. WHY CAN'T THEY JUST BE COOL ABOUT THIS? I want to continue to work from home. Home is where my kitties are. I've only had 2 MINOR panic attacks during work since I've been working from home. I wonder if I can get a note from my doctor...
  17. I'm wary of the mega-hype on this film
  18. When I was about 4, somebody bought me plastic "wigs"-one gold, one silver and one bronze. We looked like Star Trek characters with those things on our heads and it triggered a life-long love of and obsession with metallics, especially gold.
  19. She almost makes up for it in cute. ALMOST
  20. There should be a special award for picking a person who dies twice
