So I got the house

Filed under: — Tim @ 11:49 am

The first week and a half of August were spent driving all over town and surrounding towns viewing houses, condos and apartments. I’ve been living in this house since I moved to Connecticut three years ago, and with my lease ending in September I really didn’t want to spend another winter here. The primary problem is that it’s an older building, with older windows, and I waste a lot of money keeping this place heated in the winter.

So at the beginning of August I started looking around to see what else was out there. I must have looked at a couple of dozen places, but then I found this absolutely gorgeous house right on the river. I applied, got the house, and so now for the past couple of weeks I’ve been slowly boxing up my whole life. I’ve been digging through all the junk that just accumulates over the years, and so far I’ve thrown out 16 trash bags worth of “ehh…maybe I’ll need this someday” stuff. Because let’s face it, you never need that shit. And if by some ridiculous chance you do, just go buy a new one. The less I have to pack and move, the better.

In that vein, I’ve come across a giant box of vintage CAD shirt stock I’m not sure what to do with. Shirts from like the early, early days, that haven’t been in print for years. I’ve considered putting them on eBay… but then I have to deal with shipping them, and ironically I think I’ve already packed any shipping materials I had lying around. It’s pointless to bring them to a convention, because they’re such random designs and sizes.

Just a couple of more weeks.
