Wayfare’s done an incredible amount of packing over the last few weeks, and I’m glad we got the early start. I’ve been really dragging my feet on my room: I threw out a bunch of junk on my desk that I don’t need anymore, but have only packed one box worth of stuff so far. There are bits of my thesis everywhere (even under my dresser!), and over half the closet is filled with Wayfare’s stuff (most of which is, conveniently, already boxed).

Last night the girls upstairs were making an ungodly amount of noise: stomping, music, scraping furniture across the floor. Usually that really gets under my skin, but I was just like “screw you bitches, I’m outta here in a week!” Same with the garbage people leave in the elevators, or the broken exhaust fans in the parking garage. Actually, that last one kinda scared me a little.

I’ve been watching a lot of TV lately, largely because shows are new again in the fall. It took a while for it to hit me, but I suddenly realized that reality shows are finally in a severe decline. There was a point, not too long ago, where if a show had writers and actors, pretty much no matter the quality, I’d watch it. But this season has a couple of good shows (Lost is looking like it’s flagging… really time to start dishing some answers there). Heroes is really coming around, and I’m getting past the terrible narration (mostly because now I focus on the cool integration of the titles into the scenes while he talks). House is still good, but I’m disappointed that they let him get healthy and clean for the beginning of the show only to take it away so very quickly (and I loved the “now I can do this” moment). Much like the Star Wars prequel trilogy, I think I’m genetically programmed to love Battlestar Galactica even if it is getting a little strange now (or rather, has been for a long time). I was really hoping they’d get control of that abandoned Base Star though. It would have made a nice replacement for the Pegasus :( Much like Lost, I think they need to start dishing some answers to long-standing questions. Beyond those shows that I’m actually watching, most of the commercials I’m seeing are actually for real shows, too. I can’t wait for Futurama to come back, and then it’ll be like the last half decade or so never happened.

One Response to “Packing”

    Packing’s not so bad, it’s the actual MOVING that’s the real bitch…
