a few things on the radar

Just wanted to remind myself (and ya’ll) that there are Things upcoming.

Don’t forget about the woman’s Clothing Sale for the Cure at the Vortex [May 22, 2010], in gorgeous Austin. Donations are coming from all over so there is going to be a fantabulous selection of clothes to buy. New things to wear that don’t cost a bajillion dollars AND the proceeds go towards eradicating breast cancer? DUDE, be there! Additionally, if you have clothing you want to donate, absolutely let me know.

In the final couple weeks of school – as I mentioned previously – and counting down my final projects and such. Taking volunteers to help me study for the final(s) in chemistry and medical terminology and Spanish. Promises of food and pettins for those who do! Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

*-*-*

Also, on the walking front — I will be going to Town Lake to do some walking every Saturday morning. I am not sure on the time as I would like for a group of us to go together and want to know your preferences so am asking right now (via this hideously long, run on sentence) when you want.

And to top things off, I am going to be starting the packing process in the next week or so to get a jump on it. Mostly just the things like pictures, tchotchkes, books I’ve already read, and the like.

Speaking of which — here is your relationship PSA for the day: If you are planning on moving very soon, and you buy book(s), your SO will give you a dirty look.

I am not sure why, but this is apparently considered “normal”. Even a reasonable, “but its…BOOKS, man” will only earn you a hard stare and long suffering sigh.

So. There you go. Glad to have helped.

Oh, yeah! Plans ALSO proceed apace for the orbital mind control laser platform Spaghetti Dinner and Car Wash.
Um, those are two separate events, btw. I think, because I am moving out of town, that I may well ask someone to host the first for me. I will definitely be the one cooking and all but I think it would be better attended IN Austin. *ponders*

The Car Wash — well, I definitely need to look into space where that can happen, although I am sure that can be easily found. Also, I will need some car wash volunteers. *even more pondering*


Pinky & the Brain, Warner Bros property, etc. etc.

    If I can be of help even though I know nothing about those things, I will!

    Before 3 p.m.

    Also, I will help wash cars, but cannot volunteer our apartment parking lot as a space.

  2. I’d love to get going on the walking thing, beyond what I’m already doing for flyers, but Town Lake is pretty far when we’re both living north. I mean, spend 45 minutes in the car to do 1-2 hours of walking? I’d prefer to walk closer to home.

  3. RE: Book buying

    If you are planning on moving very soon, don’t buy books unless you are the one lifting and toting the heavy boxes with all the books in them. If you want to show that person some love, get some tiny little boxes (think 12″ cubes) that have handles. Pack all your books in them. They are easy to carry, and less likely to cause your favorite person pain.

    1. Re: Book buying

      14″ X 14″ X 9″ (and I can give the info on a place where that size can be bought in bulk) is a manageable size for book boxes, with the added feature that you can make 6 stacks of mass-market paperbacks fit almost exactly in each one, which is something to consider if there are a great many mass-market paperbacks needing to be packed up.
