Moved.
It's an experience I don't want to live over in excruciating detail. Let's just say it's done, and that Aaron deserves the Distinguished Driving Cross for dealing with that rattletrap Uhaul piece-of-shit on wheels.
Honorary mentions go to Kirsten, Chun, Jason, Tapani, Sheldon and my Dad, who all came out to move our stuff from one place to another place.
Our possessions are slowly being placed in order, and new stuff from IKEA has gone in as well. Rebecca and I certainly did a lot of screwing last night, putting together the MALM wardrobe. So much screwing that I would get tired, hand her the tool, and let her screw by herself for a while on her own. Ok, that's enough.
Today is the office Christmas lunch, and there were three crisp Franklins for me on my desk this morning to put me in a good mood.

I'll sign off with this list of movies. Bold the ones you've seen. Ordinarily, I wouldn't do this sort of thing, but I was surprised by how many I've seen. That's what happens when you get old (and have Netflix)
