unpackity packity pack

Today was a day of a lot of unpacking and not nearly enough Aberdeen. Next year, by God, we are not going to be moving house and I’m not going to be under a deadline from hell when she comes to this side of the world. But having her company did make unpacking less of a drag, and after she left it occurred to me that we’d found the stereo, so I plugged it in and had music to work to. Got a lot of the books unpacked, which *hugely* reduced the overwhelmingness of the Room O’ Boxes. So I’m feeling like a Productive Kit today, although my stress level is apparently at a peak, because I have a record four canker sores. This is not best. :/

Oh, Productive Kit reminds me, I finally figured out what name I ought to give Irish people if I want them to call me something more or less like “Catie”: Kitty. I could live with Kitty. That’d be okay. After fifteen years of responding to “Kit”, after all, I’m pretty sure I’d remember to answer to “Kitty”. Its one problem, of course, is that I look nothing like Shadowcat… :)

Emily and I took a taxi home yesterday. The cabbie said, “Do ye know where the estate is, then?” I allowed as how I did, and he said, “So I won’t be driving ye all around the town,” which made us both laugh. :)

I have gotten the cover for Chance #1. You guys are gonna *die*. *smug*

miles to Isengard: 42.7


  1. I have double checked your site and is Chance a comic book series? I wasn’t sure.

    I grew up in the Air Force and married into the Navy. I have done way too much moving in my lifetime. All I can really tell you is get rid of stuff both packing and unpacking and be ruthless about it. Also, big tip, pack matresses, sheets, pillows, & pillowcases in the same mattress box. Then you aren’t hunting the box with all of that stuff in it so you can sleep the first night.

  2. Yep, Chance is a comic series, due to launch (hopefully) in September. As soon as things are a bit more solidified i’ll start talking about it a lot here. :))

    We didn’t cull much moving out, because Ted was left to pack on his own, but we’re going to be murderously ruthless unpacking. Oi. :)
