if anyone has book sized boxes, let me know. i need to pack books, and not in huge cubes...

yesterday was a fascinating mix. i spontaneously called up fabulist and begged him to come look at the house, and we did so nearly immediately. when we finished, we wandered back to his abode and i was treated to many aural delights. i am always behind various curves when it comes to interesting music! we discovered we were both free for lunch and headed over to Sabang in wheaton. i let Joe order everything, because for some reason i was completely unable to decide. he also loaned me a film to watch.

and oh, i did watch it. my neck muscles had seized up for no apparent reason as they do from time to time, so i set myself up on pillows and proceeded to enjoy a terrible, terrible film from 1980 called The Apple. tagline: "the power of rock... in 1994!" yes, set in the oh-so-distant future of 1994, a disco-rock musical film for the ages. i may have to own this, if for no other reason than to torture other people with it.

later i went over to tzel's for noshing and GURPS testing. she and lilmymble and i watched a number of episodes of Fruits Basket which i tempered with reading the organic style magazine. it was very cute. of course, riddled with many of the problems with anime. it was fun! but my neck had seized up again and was nearly immobile. i wish i knew what caused this but i am thinking it's just tension. usually i only get it when i have a cold.

so last night being so tense and worked up about many things not only was my neck in excruciating pain but i became extremely nauseated. (nods to pictsy) so i moved my 7-fillings appointment back, which is probably going to end up costing me. so, this week has been a little bit self-loathing intense but i forgive myself for this one.

now if i could just move my head left and right i would really be happy.

Call Borders for empty boxes - you can't pack them heavier than you can carry (with books, that is).

What we did [when we didn't have enough small boxes]is fill a large box with some books and the rest with other things like clothes and/or linens. It keeps things relatively manageable and light.

This is definitely something I've tried before and will likely try again!

7 fillings?
Had the planned to do them all in one setting? =(

Re: 7 fillings?
I have a total of 14. I was trying to rush them through before my insurance changed but it was not meant to be. I guess this is punishment for waiting 7 years to go. :(

For a movie that is so bad you have to see it again and again, look at Rockula if you haven't already. It has Toni Basil and Thomas Dolby, among others...

Both made by Cannon Films, both Golan/Globus productions... in fact, more or less the first and last Cannon films from what I've read. Worth a double feature!

Liquor boxes are best for books. They're big enough to be productive but small enough to carry if full. Go to the local packie and ask. They're free. I find the clerks are territorial on weekend nights - they might ask you to come late, after the party rush is over. But you can get 'em.

another plan i have used before. :) i tend to hope for boxes from elsewhere first, because often enough the liquor store ones have a ... smell.

we do 2 things with books - first, we empty non-seasonal clothing out of their storage boxes (clothes transport pretty easily in bags) and fill those with books. then we fill in with paper bankers boxes (which we buy at the office supply store).

for your neck, i find it sometimes help to imagine i'm doing neck rotations or making little figure-8s. like the intention to move can restore mobility a little.

A campy sci-fi musical? I must see this.

So, you took a bite of The Apple, huh? Tasty, isn't it?

Yay, Furuuba! An absolute doll of an anime I've seen a few too many times and can't recommend enough to folks.

I still want to see the house!
Aug. 27th, 2004 04:46 pm (UTC)
Whatcha doin tomorrow?
Aug. 27th, 2004 08:20 pm (UTC)
Maybe seeing the house? Josh's brother might be in town so it might just be me.

Sounds good! If you like we can have lunch!

Are you sure you don't have meningitis? (I'm sorry, there's a hypochondriac rooted deep inside... I'd make such a cheery nurse...)
Aug. 28th, 2004 06:21 am (UTC)
Oh I totally freak out every time I get a crick in my neck, particularly if it's combined with a headache. I ALWAYS think I have meningitis. This time I was already so freaked out about like 7 other things going on in life that I just knew it had to be tension and I told myself I didn't need to be freaking out about meningitis...
Aug. 28th, 2004 06:27 am (UTC)
Oh also, this has been going on for since early thursday, from what I have learned of meningitis, I'd be way more sick in alot of other ways by now if it were that. I've had the same neck thing before and called the nurse line so many times it's not even funny.

Okay, good, just checking. Neck problems suck. Have you been able to have a chiro or someone look at it?
