So that emptied three drawers. What else...I have a small drawer of miscellaneous shit. There's all that crap on the bottom of my closet (court notebooks and yearbooks and various computer cords and I think a couple of Dreamcasts). There's my Playstation 2 and games in the living room. A small pile of bank statements.
What am I going to do with my old computer and laptop? Just take them with, I guess. I'm never going to use them but I have to find a proper way to dispose of them.
Then...my Roomba. That's pretty small. Slow cooker, George Foreman grill, various white goods. Iron. Two hair clipper sets.
Clothes can go in the luggage. I have two pieces of very old luggage.
Then there's my weights. They have their own carrying case. Maybe I'll make more use of them in Glasgow.
And...that's about it. My work stuff but that fits in it's own briefcase.
Yeah. I think that this can be done with five boxes to spare. But I'll bring the leftover boxes too. And then there's the furniture but it's mostly unassembled already. I never neeed them for this place. Only the wardrobe and a tiny end table are assembled.
So...sweet. Yeah. I think that's just about everything.
Also got an email today from a place I sent my CV to. They're in Edinburgh and said that they may have some work in the future. I sent them the CV three months ago. So I said that I'm moving to Glasgow this month, going to see how it goes, and that Edinburgh is nearby so I could do some jobs there. So that would be good. Don't just rely on one place.
Also ordered a farewell gift for my lady friend. A big thing of Lush bath shit. It's an easy gift for the ladies. £130 but I can swing it. I think that it's much bigger than I expected, though. I thought it would be more tasteful but I looked at some videos and there's some big ass box.
We've had some discussions about body soap versus hand soap. She found it amusing that I use hand soap in the shower. I told her that she's fallen for marketing gimmicks and that it's all the same soap.
I told her that in the old days, they didn't have this pump soap. Soap was sold in bar-form. You'd buy a three pack of these bars and put one on the sink for your hands and another in the bath for bathing. The same principle applies to soap sold in pump-form.
She still wasn't buying it. So I looked it up. "Can you use hand soap in the shower?". The first hit started, "Of course you can use hand soap in the shower" and as I read this out to her she said, "No, it doesn't say that. Let me see that." I showed it to her, she read it, but she was still skeptical.
This is somebody who uses dishsoap on her hands. The first time I saw her do this I couldn't b believe it. "What? I have soap in the bathroom." "No, that's okay." And dishsoap actually is different from hand or body soap. It's harsher stuff used to remove grease from dishes. People wear gloves when washing dishes because they don't want this harsh soap to come into contact with their skin because it's damaging.
But whatever. A big pile of overpriced soaps for her. It's a solid gift. I'll buy her a card too thanking her for being my friend ala the Golden Girls.
