One of those 'meh' days

I know 60 days is ages to find a house and move and such, but it's just plain irritating and gives me one (really, two) more thing to worry about. I was having probolems sleeping last night because I couldn't stop thinking about how difficult it is going to be to find a place with enough room for all the stuff we have collected... stuff that we don't want to get rid of. And about how we're going to get rid of the stuff we no longer want to keep.

Stupid tiny inner-city rubbish bins.

One of my supervisors has been away for two weeks, and is back today. Now, while I've done a whole lot of work, I don't want to appear like I have done very little. I hate doing all this work and having very little to show for it. Consequently, I have no real desire to go into work to face him, even though I know delaying this will just make the problem worse.

My throat has been kind of sore for a few days. I'm ignoring it in the hopes it goes away.

I had dinner cooked by CAMERON last night. It was grand to see him and his housemates, reinzero and mongoloidcousin, and also astrodust who turned up after work at a near-by cafe. I had a fantastic time, and it reminded me of the life I want to have. It also inspired me to look for places in their area, but alas they seem to be a little pricey (curse you Smith Street).

So, yeah. Today I am 'meh'.

House Hunting, Day One

When I get my colossal ass into gear, I can be a ninja of many things. My abilities to find a restaurant on a saturday night what will accept 14 people right there and then with no booking have been tested and proven already, so it has come to my latest challenge - House Relocation 2005.

I have emailed real estate agents about 15 places. I have checked out five places from the outside. I have talked to real estate agents about a place that isn't yet avaliable for inspection.

I have already inspected one place, and gotten a hold of the tenancy application forms.

I am determined to get a nice place in our price-range and our desired areas. Fear my house-hunting-ninja-fu.

Incidentally - I know some of you have already expressed interest, but if there are any of you out there with cars (especially those with trailers, or vans, or that kind of thing) that would be interested in helping bishi_wannabe and I move house (from North Melbourne to, probably, North Melbourne), please let me know!

My fu cannot be stopped.

In news related to moving

We never had a house-warming at our old place. bishi_wannabe is not the party sort, you see. I havn't had a birthday party since my 21st either, so, you know, I think I'm about due.

It also comes to my attention that we will have to be moved out by the 20-somethingth of May... which is only roughly two weeks before my birthday. (Yeah, I know, thanks for the peachy keen present you black-hearted owner!)

So this year, I might just have to combine these two awful events - moving house and aging - and give you all a chance to laugh at me for more than the usual reasons. Provided you all leave at a civilised hour so that bishi_wannabe doesn't get too wierded out by people touching his things and being in his house. If you want to mock my decrepit, pudgey, newly housed form and think this is a good idea, let me know.
