Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning.

Purged a bunch of old check duplicates tonight (and briefly killed my shredder while doing so.)

It's frustrating because I know I'm making progress at cleaning out all the little nooks and crannies where stuff has been accumulating for the past five years but when I look around the apartment it isn't looking that much better. In fact it looks a lot worse since more stuff has been pulled out and piled up so it can be sorted and (hopefully) eliminated. Needing to take out the trash and recycling more frequently is at least one good sign though.

Hopefully I'll be at the 1pm showing of Bubba Ho-Tep at the Uptown on Saturday. monstersocks won't be around so I'll have to find something to do with my time this weekend.

I think I'm going to maybe see Bubba Ho-Tep on Saturday, too. Don't know what time yet. I'll leave that fine detailing up to ninevah and Mirage.

It's always discouraging when you're cleaning and it starts to looks worse before it gets better. I usually get very grumpy at that point and don't do anything with it for a couple of days. It's terrible, I know.

Wow, you've been at your place for five years now?

The 1pm showing is the only matinee, so you could convince him to try and save money. I'd imagine most Bruce Campbell fans aren't out and about at that hour of the day on the weekend, nor do they like venturing out into the daylight.

Yep, five years. I was moving once a year or so after college but that was mostly because of my roommates. Now that I don't have any roommates there isn't anyone who can decide they want to move back in with their parents or that they don't want to live in a cruddy townhouse anymore. If I were smarter I'd have bought a house a few years ago.

The 1pm showing is the only matinee...

That's definitely good to know.

By "only matinee" I mean "only daytime showing at the cheap price". For some reason the Uptown and Lagoon only discount the first showing of the day instead of all showings before a certain time.

Ooops, somehow I managed to go tonight (Friday) and paid the full $8. Ooooh, but it was worth it!
