This past weekend plans went off without a hitch, at least on saturday. We enjoyed the Big Flea (noting that people who rip apart old books and matte the pictures in them make a killing!!), made it to Sunflower where much fake meat was consumed, and then arrived in the nick of time to see Der Golem. For those who attended and enjoyed the music, I think John is going to upload the tracks or sell CDs on cafepress, FYI. Sunday was less on target as my classmates bailed on me and I spent 2 hours at the library studying alone.

I've gone ahead and made a LJ feed from my Twitter account so you can be privy to the 140-characters-or-less witticisms or complaints or what have you that I generally send from my phone when I'm trapped. I doubt any of you will add it to your friends list, but there it is!

And now something you guys can help me with: I have an overabundance of furniture (and other things) (but for now, chairs). I am ready to part with two of my kitschier finds which take up a little too much space in our small house. So, if you are interested, please consider taking one or both of these chairs into your home:

1. The Barrel Chair Yes, a chair made from a barrel. Only downside is that it's heavy.

2. The Faux Eames Chair Pretty Self-Explanatory. Lacks footrest. Has a few scratches.

Please, someone, give them a new home.

In band news: Our bassist, my friend from rock camp Olya, is leaving. She is moving to San Fran, and her house sold within a few days of being on the market, so that's not going to delay her. As of December the Jelly Sharks will be looking for a new bassist. Any bassists out there want to be in a band? Anyone want to learn the bass really quick? I am worried I will soon be the only girl in the band.

Bills: I signed up for paperless billing, but not auto-pay because, like you, I'm scared of the overdraft. That way, when I get the bill, I'm already online and just click a link, go to the website, and pay the bill. My bills always come in the second half of the month after I've been paid, though.

Rollovers: I went to my bank and told the financial/investment people that I needed to rollover my 401k. They did EVERYTHING for me, and it's a LOT of paperwork. So I now have an IRA that's doing way better than my 401k ever did. =) I waited about 7 years after I quit Goodyear to do it, too.

i did a rollover on my 401K from a previous job and another financial company to my current job account / company. it was super, super easy, and no tax ramifications.

I sent Olya in the direction of your myspace, since she is LJ-less. :)
