Kellianne's boxes arrived last week but I've only started opening them today. It's awesome to unwrap kitchen utensils and ashtrays full of shells and rotating picture frames one by one in anticipation of the big move in. When talking to
endquote and twozdai about the move last night they asked how I was handling the thought of change. Josh said, "You used to be really into minimalism" when I described the 23 boxes. And I said I used to be really into being single too. But, if being stuck in your ways is a sign of getting older, I want to be young forever. This is a great way to transition from long to close distance.

23 boxes sounds so bad. and then you realize that it's mostly clothing. no problem. just clothing. lots and lots of clothing.

george came into my room today and wondered how i was going to fit everything in the car. i'm not worried.

It's not bad at all. I just opened the box with the mirror and your framed pictures and stuff. That was my favorite box so far. It really does remind me of that feeling of Christmas that I had when I was young... of each object having magical mysterious properties that were waiting to unfold. And unlike those ultimately disappointing objects, these really are imbued with the magic of our future.

23 boxes. Pshaw. I have 23 boxes before I even finish the CDs. Last move was something like 80. And I've probably doubled since then.

WHO ELSE IS GOING TO SAVE EVERY LONGBOX EVER MADE?
