Moving sucks @#$%

Okay, so it has taken me forever to get to this point, and a good deal of it is my procrastination and personal demons. I got an apartment, signed the lease, paid the deposit and first month, etc. I arranged movers on VERY short notice and told work I could start tomorrow (Monday).

So I call the movers yesterday to find out when they were coming. They said they were coming this afternoon. Of course, this is a day after I had planned and what they originally said, but it's not that big a deal.

Then this morning the driver calls and says they can't get my stuff until tomorrow, i.e., the day I'm supposed to start work. *sigh* I could possibly make alternate arrangements for someone else to be around when the movers come, but the hassle would be enormous. My frustration is compounded by his thick accent, making it difficult to understand what the hell he's saying ("Is Kelly there?"), and by the fact that now they want to come at 7am tomorrow. So I emailed UIUC to let them know I'll be an extra day late. I hope it's not a problem, and I don't think it will be, but I'm frustrated and annoyed.

However, I'm trying to look at the bright side. I get an extra day to spend with my sweetie. I get to watch the Academy Awards tonight. I can use the day to take care of some other new-apartment-related stuff. I can read a bit. Perhaps write, too.

Oh, well. It's out of my hands for now.

In other news, I have to admire Halle Berry's cajones for this. And George Bush taking the worst actor award is classic.

I also liked today's Sinfest, a comic I should start reading more often.

I guess that's it for now.
