[PUBLIC] Living in a World of Move

I got home from Fort Worth in the wee-small hours of Thursday/Friday night, and spent most of Friday frantically working on a project for work. After work I have a whole lot of nothing to do, so I decided I would go unannounced to help witticaster relocate. It turned out to be an exceptionally good idea -- I got to drive a truck! Repeatedly! It was just the right amount of hard work to make me feel accomplished but not exhausted, and I made it home by about 0200.

Saturday I spent on my own project, the packing up of my apartment, which I briefly broke to go to WPI's Commencement, and then got assistance from mariaklob and assorted others who do not have LJ accounts. In only 3-4 hours, we boxed everything of import and many things of triviality in preparation for my move 1 week from yesterday.

Yesterday evening I thanked my guests/packing crew and departed for Waltham, where dragonwolf and her army had prepared a delicious dinner for her housemates and visiting parents. Although I was honored to be invited, I was notably the only person at the table who was neither graduating, a parent of a graduate, or living (or all but living) in the house. So I endeavored to be both helpful and charming, met with mixed results on both counts, and then helped break down the dinner setup. That done, I collapsed on a chair in their living room whilst witticaster and zapf plugged away on their various Intertasks until londo arrived with juldea (who somehow offended him enough just before arriving to get a door closed in her face), and usernamenumber. When it was 2330 and they were talking about starting to watch Babylon 5, I decided it was time to make a casual exit, and dropped home.

Today, its off to brunch, and then return to Texas, where my skills are in demand.
