Tuesday: I now have plane tickets.

And my car is clean.  This bag contained everything that was in my car.  Most of it is going in the trash.

  • I did not know this.  Stupid anti-vaccination people.
  • Yeah.  They should just say it.  On camera.  In the script.  It's 2018.
  • Heimdall was obviously the entire government.  Odin got to make pronouncements, but I'm sure that Heimdall just ignored all the dumb ones.
  • So they finished with essentially a deus ex machina.  Oh well.  At least we got Ralph back.

Monday: Documenting everything isn't lots of fun.

And I'll have to take one of these "empty office" pictures at some point.
I brought home a bag of books today.  I think at this rate, I'll get everything home in time.

Sunday: It turns out Safeway deli chicken tandoori samosas are much better than you'd expect.

I thought about going to get garlic shrimp from the shrimp truck, and stopping to get a Dole whip on the way back.  Unfortunately I got out of bed too late for that to happen.
So I said farewell to Kono's instead.
I also didn't see Deadpool this weekend.  Hrm.

Saturday: I was super productive today.

I said, sarcastically.  Maybe tomorrow will be better.

At least I'm not one of the EVERYBODY on the news talking about the Pahoa lava flow that can't stop smiling.  Seriously, way too many of these people have smirks on their faces while talking about lava, eruptions, earthquakes, and basic volcanology.

I was going to get a sandwich, but pho sounded better while I was driving.

I really like eating most of it, and then adding a bunch of their chili oil/sauce.  It is a good burn.

Friday: It turns out paying a lot of money for half your furniture to be stolen makes the whole moving thing suddenly more realistic.

I got rid of two old televisions, and old microwave, my couch, my desk, my dresser, two bookshelves full of magazines I haven't read since moving here, and an end table that never really had a place, so it collected dust on the lanai.  This weekend I need to keep throwing stuff out, because I had three bags of trash today, and I suspect I can fill up three bags of trash each day until I move.

And then I got a very late lunch and edited my paper.

  • Well that's awful.
  • Best version of Romeo and Juliet.
  • They messed around this entire season, but at least Daisy force punched Inhuman quaked Talbot into space, where his stupid gravity powers do nothing to make him not freeze to death.  The jerk.  I will say that they brought it around at the end, where they decide Legends of Tomorrow style to go grab old Fitz from his cryogenic sleep to replace new Fitz, who died pretty messily.  I love when stories just go "time travel can't break anything" and the characters actively abuse this fact.

Thursday: This is why I'm using movers.

I have been drenched in sweat like 99 times today.  First this morning while trying to find an ATM at Ala Moana so I could pay my car registration.  You'd think that all the signs saying "cash or check only" would be a sign to them that maybe they should accept credit cards.  But that's done, so I will be able to get my car off the island.

The other times have been while cleaning things in my apartment that I am getting rid of tomorrow.  Like ten-fifteen minutes of work, with my fan blasting me as much as possible, and because it's like 100% humidity and crap trades, just that is too much.  I'm not going to be able to get everything I'd planned taken away, but I should get most of it.

Me, looking at this picture: "Why did I take this drunk?  Where am I going, anyway?"  The answer: because this was dripping water at LAX nine years ago.  Nice how things connect like this.

Wednesday: Work from home day.

Which means I got most of the paper edits I wanted done, so tomorrow will be largely a re-read and double check day.  I also cleaned some stuff, and called people I needed to call, and did "grown up moving" stuff.  I also got my moving quote.  It's larger than I was hoping for, but I should probably just accept it to lock things in.  They're going to do all the packing and lifting, so I guess it's worth it.

Also today marks the decade mark of going to a carnival.
