Here are pictures of my house: http://www.lemonsharks.net/post/91677165033/taraljc-lemonsharks-my-house-pics-didnt

use the arrow icons on the left and right of each photo to peruse.

Thursday: After work my [livejournal.com profile] taraljc and I went to World Market and schlepped my new chairs home (I bribed her with barbecue and custody of the remote control), and then sleeping lots.

Friday: Came home to my house to find my upstairs neighbors' 5-day-pay-rent-or-quit-notice mistakenly stuffed under my door, about had a heart attack, and then ate leftovers at my table (I SAT IN A CHAIR) and spent most of the evening reading a trashy romance novel. Then slept lots.

Saturday: Low-key morning, followed by three hours of MOVE THINGS! I collected T., reher old bookshelf, and two giant ikea bags full of books from her house and took them to my house, where she unloaded and I parked. Then returned her to her house. Did I mention there was a spider-friend who got loose in the zipcar? And that I spent ten minutes on the side of the road chasing him down with a mini legal pad to release him into the world?

Afternoon was sorting books and listing saleable ones on amazon and putting away the ones I want to keep for myself, while watching ~6 episodes of the X-Files. Evening there was loads of rain and a shooting in my neighborhood, along with dish-washing and laundry.

Sunday: Folding laundry and matching up socks while watching dinosaur shows on netflix, followed by showering and attempting to dry my hair with the blowdryer with the air conditioner on ... which tripped the circuit breaker, which resulted in an emergency weekend call to maintenance. Then I ran out and met up with [livejournal.com profile] aj for lunch (FILIPINO FOOD OM NOM NOM) in a park and enjoying the beautiful day and catching up after way too long. Transit there and home (so help me I want the CTA to LOSE MONEY ON ME being signed up for unlimited rides), where electricity had been restored! I (finally) unpacked and shelved one of my 3 giant bins of books, and then took pics and talked to my mom for over an hour (good talk) and am now going to enforce the "no screens after 9:00" rule by lying in bed reading more trashy romance novels.


I'm seriously considering re-approaching the way I handle my personal library, like ... I think I want to focus on building my non-fiction library, while culling my fiction mercilessly? Only keeping books I'm going to reread, or that I can reference, and donating books (either with a legal or quasi-legal e-copy retained) once I've finished them. Because do I REALLY need to have a copy of every book I've ever read or will ever read? Probably not. WILL I read most of my books more than once? Probably not. Is my space in fact limited?

YES, YES IT IS.

And that was my weekend. Overall good, if a little fraught. Overall restful, despite seeing lots of people and doing lots of things.

And most importantly I am really happy I didn't go to #Dashcon, because apparently it was an unmitigated disaster on all fronts. I watched it go down (in flames) throughout the weekend.

Talked to my parents, with one new development:

* My dad has a boat now. This means that he will talk my ear off about the boat, devoting only 1/3 of our hour-long conversation to The End Times and Have You Read The Bible and The Antichrist Is Coming and I just.

You know the look that Orlando Jones had on his face in the Sleepy Hollow pilot around the first time Ichabod started talking? That look? The before he was sent to retrieve the head and joined the phone tree look?

That is the look on my face while mm-hmming my way through not talking about how I pretty much consider Christianity basically an abusive ex-boyfriend.

* Parents are well, but still lacking sense.

* Having a full english breakfast with [livejournal.com profile] taraljc and matzo ball soup for dinner, because we have a million chicken carcasses and boxes of matzo from the great plague months this past spring, and also Thanksgivukkah.
