The time has come! (apologies)

To talk of many things:
Of moves--and cars--and occupancy dates--
Of peniless--and change--
Of lease mistakes--and leasing breaks--
And Manhattan in the breeze--

So, my long radio silence explained in one word: stress.

Signed a lease today. Moving to the city.
Landlord's reaction to lease break, firsthand: unknown.
Landlord's reaction to lease break, secondhand: not good.

Them there's some big changes on the horizon. I hope we made the right decision(s). I am going to be divesting myself of quite a voluminous amount of random stuff (whatever I cannot sell) in an attempt to make the move more possible.

Our lease starts March 1.

The apartment is a big 3bedroom that is going to be gut-rennovated, so it is a real steal for 1350$ a month. I just wish I had more reassurance about what my current landlord's plans ential. I really tried to do the stand up thing with my notice letter, but I have this fear that things are not going to work out cordially in that arena.

Our new realty office kicks ass though. They were super-helpful. They are called Vertical Horizions, they operate out of a modest office on 1790 99th street on 3rd ave. If you are looking for an apartment in the UES of Manhattan, call them.

Work, both 9-5, and work-after-work has been stressing me more than usual, it is not helping with the other stuff. I just hope that in a month, I am looking back at all this pressure with amused nostalgia.

Donations of funds or labor to me and chellez "Get your ass to mars" drive are now being accepted.

Book reviews this week, or never again.

I thought you didn't have a lease at your current residence?

i wish
we do, and i am trying to be a stand-up tenant on the exit, but if she really wanted to push it she could take me to court. i don't think that is going to happen though, because it will cost her more to do that then she would get for the apartment.

well, i think i've helped shuffle you from one apartment to the next often enough for you to know i'll be there on moving day.

i am curious tho - didnt you claim to get rid of most of your junk last time you moved?

i got rid of junk, this time i am going to get rid of things that are not so much junk, but things I don't use.

i am going to make a trip to the dragon's den and divest myself of the majority of my geek paraphenalia (aside from my 3.5 edition stuff, and 3rd edition source), and am considering taking a chunk out of my fiction library.

There are also lots of stupid knickknaccky things that never even got unpacked, I think I am just going to dump those, rather than move them all over.

Re: ya
correct me if i'm wrong, but isnt the vast majority of your geek paraphenalia currently in residence in my living room?
i do hope if you pare down your library that you let others take a swipe at the dregs before you go ebay :-)

what you ahave at your place is the majority of what i will be keeping (plus about another 10-15 books at my place)

if you wanna swipe go ahead, i am going to box what i am keeping this weekend i think, then try to dragon's den the rest.

you know i'd help if i could. so instead i'll send johnny! :)

and if you're getting rid of books that you can't sell could you let johnny pick a couple for me first? i'm trying to start a library that isn't text books.

i am going to pack up the books i am keeping, then open the cow to the pirahnnahs before taking them anywhere.
