Hello Indy, Goodbye Fridge

Last night I saw Indiana Jones with Joey, plus with JB and Katie from work, and (mostly by accident) bumped into a few of the old AFK crowd too. The movie was better than I expected! It's not groundbreaking or anything but it's lots of silly, action-y fun, I never got bored, and the testing-range incident near the beginning of the film (you'll know it when you see it) was WAY up my alley. Hell yeah!

I've now sold off all my excess furniture except the washing machine, which I'll list on Ebay this weekend. The microwave and fridge got picked up last night; of course, we have a second fridge in the house so there's no inconvenience to anyone for the remaining week before the move.

Due to the van being Definitely Fucked, we're spending this weekend packing, and doing the move all in one day next Saturday with the help of a hire truck or ute... haven't decided on which vehicle yet. The ute is only half the price but means we'll have to make six or so trips instead of one. I don't know enough about fuel efficiency to do the math on that, but at some point, wouldn't the savings of hiring a ute would be absorbed by the additional fuel costs of running it for so much longer?

I'll be spending this evening and tomorrow morning taking apart the sold-off furniture that various buyers will pick up during the day on Saturday. My computer will be disassembled and remain that way until the move.

On Saturday night we're taking a break to go to Greg and Elizabeth's place for a little Eurovision get-together.

TGIF! This week has been long and stressful.
