Cleanout 2005

2005-06-08 butlerst.jpgTwo very important events that require boxes and give-aways are coming up: my departure from my place of employment (6/28) and the Lexacor merger (est.: Fall 2005).

Thankfully, my office moved last spring, which forced me to throw out a lot of the useless crap that was generating dust in a file cabinet or drawer. My apartment, on the other hand, contains many a stoop sale item, and when you survey Lex and my belongings, it can be quite easily deduced that we have duplicates, duplicates, duplicates. 13� television, anyone? DVD? What about a tiny computer table? A book or two? Maybe a cat?

As we not so slowly slip into mid-summer, I have decided to dedicate the next month and a half to paring down. My cubicle will be the first initiative�probably the quickest. I might float a few things through this website and will definitely investigate Craig�s List (I like the �you want it, move your ass and come get it� mentality).

So, first order of business: Who wants a vintage Macintosh? It would make a great doorstop, ottoman, or aquarium. I would take it home myself but it weighs way to much for me to bother with�and is sure to sit on my floor collecting dust, just as it has for the past six years on my office desk. But it sure is cute�

For a few minutes I had no recollection of having taken that photo; nor could I identify the location in which it was taken. How could that sombrero, which I pass daily, have slipped from my consciousness. I hope a certain group of downstairs neighbors have not tapped into your blog...incriminating evidence indeed.

yeah, it looks like sugar was involved...since you have a huge box of nerds in your hand.

Whatevs, Cheesebus! I say when the shit hits the fan in the old place (which it will, I am sure) we steal the hat. It is so meant to be ours.

Tien, yes, they were rainbow nerds, given to me by David aka Skutchie, as a happy Pride present.

The dog days of summer find me standing in front of our cooling unit at work. I button my lab coat, stand with my back inches from the vents and relish the cold, cold air inflating the lab coat and chilling my immobile form. True, there is a frightening resemblance to a Medico-Pillbury Dough-Tech, but that's someone elses' nightmare. Yes, I do move away as needed during the course of the day, but oh, baby, that's my summer spot. Now where did I put my fan-cap?
