This time of slacking must come to an end shortly. Sat down tonight and started on the big list of things to do in preparation for the move; it's not giant huge, but there's a lot of stuff to be done. Duh. Now I've got a list, though, so the pain is at least quantifiable now.
Speaking of which, I picked up a used copy of Stuntman at Green Apple today, just to scratch a new game itch that won't really be satisfied until next month. Man, does it suck. It uses the engine from Driver, which I loved, and it seems like it should be fun... but it's just not. I guess I'll just have to sit tight and patiently wait for my salvation. Scott also mentioned something about an EBX (Electronics Boutique Exchange, I'm guessing?) store downtown today, so I might have to check that out sooner or later, too.
I've also picked up a number of new DVDs in the last week or so, (including a used copy of Waking Life, in preparation for our dreamy new city) and I'm slowly working through them; also picked up a signed copy of the new Chuck Palahniuk book, because I don't have a three foot high stack of paperbacks to work through or anything. Also finally got around to downloading and watching an episode of West Wing, which a lot of my friends seem to like. I'm sure it gets better.
So, tomorrow is my official day to start kicking ass. Getting boxes, sorting and mercilessly winnowing the book collection, finding new homes for said chaff-books, plus a bunch of redundant VHS tapes, magazines, and electronics. Also have to finish cataloging stuff for insurance purposes, and maybe even do some pre-emptive packing. I've also got a few projects, computer-like, that need attention pretty soon, but we'll see how that goes.(September 30, 2002 09:25 PM)
