I had some friends over last night and they seemed surprised that I hadn’t started packing. So I started. You can thank your lucky stars you don’t live near me. I have ten huge boxes of books. That would be the adult books. There are probably at least two or three boxes of kid books yet to pack. Several friends have offered to help me pack so I kind of have to get off my butt and do something now. I also hit the jackpot at the grocery store in fruit boxes so I am out of excuses.

In other good news my friend has a 14 year old son, and I am am a firm believer in 14 year old computer repair-men. He told me what the problem was, found me a comparable computer for under $400 and offered me $50 for parting out my laptop. He probably would install Linux if only I were to ask.
