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.


I am trying to figure out a way to make it so that I will pay bills on time. I need a system that promotes timeliness - I have the online thing going on making it easier, but I seem to get around to it every other month, instead of every month. I am still loath to set up automatic payments for fear of a spiralling miserable overdraft situation, unless someone convinces me otherwise. Maybe I'll try putting a monthly thing on my google calendar? If only I could access that from work. *dark looks* If any of you have bothered to read to this point, how do you ensure that you pay your bills on time?

Finally, I now have 2 401ks I need to roll over into my new 401k and I am discombobulated about how to do this. I should be worried that the Qwest one is going to asplode soon and make me pay taxes... I wonder why it hasn't yet? Has anyone successfully rolled over a 401k? What should I expect in the way of obstacles?

We autopay everything except (1) the mortgage, so I can figure out how much or how little extra we can afford to add each month to the basic payment (nothing like paying down debt!), and (2) the cable bill, since I haven't figured out how to do that yet. Oh, and the water bill, which is only four times a year, and has no autopay option anyway.
