Random 'N' Sundry

Hi, all! Since I was so quiet for such a long time I feel like posting about anything and everything, so be warned! ;)

Maintenance was supposed to come Friday to pound in the nails so I could hang calendars and pictures but never showed up. I don't want to start out like a complaining resident, but since I was promised they would come, I'm going down bright and early to the Manager's Office tomorrow and request if they could come in the morning. Whether it'll take a week or more to get this simple task done, who knows? Chasing people is part of life, after all. It's a definite negative checkmark, though, as at home I'd just do it myself. The policy is Maintenance does it, not the resident.

My extra icons will be kaput on the 14th. :( I know, I know, I'm a nag about them, but I can't renew them myself for reasons I would prefer not to go into. Just know that I would do it if I could and spare you the laments! ;)

I'm going to start going over some of the fic I have in my posting queue and hopefully will get something up soon. It's weird to see my journal with no fic posted in so long.

I need to go see Captain America 2 again soon!

We can put things on the doors here (yay, like Media West!) so I'm going to get a doohickey and put up something, at least by the fall. I need to have something Halloween-ish by then and Christmas-y after that.

I will be hosting a Halloween Challenge this year (possibly my only one for 2014), so keep that in mind. The official notice will go out in August, and I'd love to see more participation this year. Remember, crossovers are welcome, so if you're hot on Steve/Bucky or anything Marvel right now, that's acceptable to mix with the DCU characters.

I hated not hosting the Dick Grayson Challenge this year but things were just too crazy. Maybe Dickie ideas will fit for Halloween! ;)

I still can't find my box of CDs which also has my Public Enemies DVD and, ironically, the Superman/Batman Public Enemies DVD. I can't find one box of Christmas ornaments, either. Oh, well, they're all here. I just need to come across them! :)

I did a total dusting, polishing, sweeping and Swiffering today, cleared out another bag and box, and plan to go sit out on the deck soon.

Damn, I wish the Patriots had taken Michael Sam in the draft! I would have been so proud of them being the first organization in the NFL to employ an openly gay football player. Good luck, St. Louis Rams! :)

Good luck getting everything organized, your pictures hung up, and fannish done stuff too. :-)

Thanks, Cat! It's weird to have all these boxes around and not sure where things are. I'm making progress, though. At least I can walk around the bedroom in little pathways now, LOL! And I've gotten rid of about a dozen boxes and half-a-dozen bags. Still more to go, but literally everything had to be boxed up because you can't move furniture with full drawers.

And the stuff you need! You never realize how much stuff is necessary for modern life: cleaning products, hammer, nails, clocks, lightbulbs, meds, sheets and pillowcases, blankets, a mat at the door to wipe your feet, etc. I have a drying rack for my clothes so that I don't have to spend money on the dryer, just the washing machine.

The fannish stuff will be a snap! ;)

YES! When we bought that place in Minneapolis, somehow we didn't realize HOW MUCH STUFF it took to stock a place. Until you do it from scratch, you really take it for granted!

*nods vigorously*

So many little details needed! You need dinnerware and glasses and utensils, dish towels and towels to stock the bathroom, cleaning cloths, brooms, scissors, a watering can for the plants, and a zillion other things! Luckily I have most of it already but some things needed to be purchased. I have a handy-dandy Patriots welcome mat so that shoes can be left there and not scuff the new wooden floors. :)

Hey girl! It's nice to see you posting again! I had to respond to this thread because I SO hear you. It is not easy! I'm glad to hear have a Patriots mat :) and you sound really good. Go you!

Thanks, Ava! :)

I'm still working on boxes. I fear that will still be a couple of more weeks. I suppose it could go faster if I spent eight hours a day on them, but no way! :) And it's slow going because I have to find places for the stuff. Some will remain in the storage area in boxes but a lot of things still have to be cleared out.

So true! Moving is *always* a nightmare. I had to do it once when I had bronchitis, and another time when I was in an arm cast recovering from an auto accident - thank God for friends for that second time. And it's always ages before I find my stuff again.

Wow, that's rough moving with a broken arm. I finally found my DVDs yesterday and my Tom Brady jersey! I was so afraid I'd stupidly put it in one of the bags I dropped off for donation. *big sigh of relief*

*huggles* :)

XD Glad to see that you're settling in, Brady! Getting a new place set up is always so much work. It never does seem to be done. Pfft at Maintenance--Show up when you say you will, guys!

:D I'm thinking of going to see Cap 2 again this weekend. It was so good but so fast that I know I missed a lot the first time around.

And good luck finding your box of CD's. Loosing that would be horrible!

*big hug*

It never gets done! Though I did find my cuckoo clock today. I need to find some zines that were spoken for but I haven't received a check yet, so I don't feel guilty yet! ;) I had them carefully packed away but in the muddle of the move, they got misplaced. I'm trying to catch up on the zines I owe this week because last week was a disaster for anything but moving!

The CDs and my DVDs are here somewhere. Just gotta find 'em! The bedroom is looking better, at least. :)

If my friends cancel on me next week, I'll go see Cap 2 by myself. Sometimes it's better, anyway, with the movies you really want to pay attention to.

This is the first piece of good Rams news I've heard in awhile. I'm sure there are worse teams, but when your local isn't even a loveable loser it kinda grinds your gears.
May. 13th, 2014 02:30 pm (UTC)
Love your icon, dear! :)

BTW, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the extra userpics! *dances* I'll be making a special thank you post soon but I'm SO HAPPY!!! You're very generous! :)
