Apace - A little less than a happy high
komos
komos
Apace
Things recovered from the former housemate's trash heap (also a partial list):

JanSport external frame pack (red)
Eggcrate-style foam sleeping pad
A large stack of Avalon Hill Games (Squad Leader, Kingmaker, others)
Hardcover first ed. of Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco
Rust-damaged huskarl axe
PC games (including Civ III and the first two Total War titles)
Dry erase board (suitable for brew scheduling)

I dropped off one bag of discarded books at the Medford Public Library yesterday, and will probably have another 1-2 for them today. My financial records are back in order, though I still need to reassemble the PC and install Quicken so I can do my books more reliably.

As an extra-special bonus, in the course of my cleaning I found the BestCellars wine tasting certificate from the silent auction that was held to benefit the Puppet Showplace Theater. Plans to move that forward are forthcoming.

Wine!

Did you guys figure out what items you may want from Sam and me yet or is that coming later?

Can you do me a favor and repost a list of what you guys have? I know that I'll need a desk, and that Pete came equiped with TV and DVD player. From there I've no idea.

We have the desk. A TV, DVD Player, VCR and an entertainment unit to fit all such items on (it's pretty nice). Umm, some random DVD's and VHS videos, an iron and ironing board. Oh, and a bookcase. Yep, that's everything I can think of.

Cool. I'll check with Pete and get back to you.

Wine? Puppets???

MY IDEA OF HEAVEN!

It was a very cool event that featured, amongst other things, the story of Oedipus told entirely with Barbie dolls. I don't know that we'll see more like it, though, as most of the adult programs have been cut out of the schedule. Shame, really, considering some of the productions that got hosted...

Wine! I imagine that the tasting will be fairly straightforward, but it's for a dozen people. ^_^

Near as I can tell, he left the things that he didn't think he'd need or use again on the curb. The PC got left because he got a laptop from work; the pack because he upgraded to an internal a few years ago. Why it was curbed rather than left was likely to spare us from having to cart out trash. Sure, it was wasteful, but there was at least a bit of consideration that played into it.

Perhaps you should have a "roommate is finally gone!" partay.

It's coming. The "Feast of the Fabulous Twenty-Something" will be celebrated as soon as we get Pete settled, and will involve drinking someone else's scotch.

Hardcover first ed. of Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco

What a find! That's one of my favorite books. :)
komos From: komos Date: October 4th, 2005 12:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Mine as well. It will find it's way into my collection of trades and likely be reread as soon as I'm through with The Mysterious Flame....

Hardcover first ed. of Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco

For the longest time I've wondered why you haven't simply killed this fellow. Now I understand. He's PURE EVIL and touching him would make you explode in a fireball. fear
komos From: komos Date: October 4th, 2005 12:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
I tend to think that pure evil would have to be actively malevolent, and I never really got that from him. The problem here was more lack of awareness. That's far more difficult to confront someone with.

Hardcover first ed. of Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco

i picked up this same hardcover edition at a church bazaar four years ago and have yet to crack it open, but based on people's reactions here, i guess i really gotta read this book. :)

Yeah, do check it out. It's fun and mind-bendy.
