I've taken three trunkloads to Goodwill this week, including several things I really didn't want to give away but knew I'd never use again. (My old trench coat, numerous shirts, etc.) I was happy to get rid of the old scanners. I also recycled about three back seats of cardboard from old boxes I broke down (not really useful for packing). Even though I hate throwing things away, it feels really liberating to get rid of stuff. Hopefully I won't have anyone inform me that actually Goodwill is a front for black market white baby dealers or something.
I discovered I'm much more organized and efficient than a semi-random sample of other people making donations to Goodwill yesterday. Usually when using the Goodwill drive-thru I don't have to wait behind anyone but yesterday I got stuck twice behind people. Each person slowly reached into the back of their vehicle, retrieved one item, considered it briefly, then handed it to the employee. The process repeated for each item they were giving away. I waited. And waited. And waited. Finally they were finished so I drove up, got out of my car, grabbed bags of stuff from my trunk, handed them to the employee and sped off.
I've moved a little stuff over to the new apartment but not much yet. Hopefully the cable guy will show up tonight so we can get cable tv and internet access setup. (monstersocks has no real access at home right now. We could set up her iBook to dial out but I don't think she'd really enjoy that much.) My storage locker is much emptier so I've got some room to store some more stuff. There'll be even more room once I get that papasan out of there.
Work was actually pretty good yesterday. It's still really busy but I was able to address several requests pretty quickly including one I'd never actually done before.
Some insomniacs actually sleep about as much as "normal" people.

I'd been thinking about seeing Closer but apparently I'd gotten Clive Owen confused with Trevor Goddard (Kano from Mortal Kombat).
