Move minus two days

Still deep in moving mode which mainly seems to consist of throwing away piles and piles of magazines that I swore I'd never get rid of, boxes of videos (remember those) and sundry other film related stuff that I seem to have "collected". (This is in addition to all the stuff I have in storage which I've not looked at in the five years I've been in my current house). Today I'm attempting to prune the books shelves. Wish me luck.

Meanwhile, Platinum Dunes have announced yet another horror remake (Rosemary's Baby), Sam Raimi's found a replacement for Ellen Page with a Tim Burton connection (Lindsay Lohman) and Hillary's confounded all expectations by prolonging the fight. Ho-hum.

Good luck again then! I can imagine what it's like: if i had to clean all the stuffs i left in my parent's house, it would take days!

I had to do that the year before last. Took me about week in all. (They had a big loft.) It wasn't pretty.

Bookshelves! Never!

And you mean Alison Lohman, yes? Have you been rereading your post about Lindsay's Marilyn shots?

Mark Salisbury said...

Sorry, head full of move. Please explain.

Gerard said...

You've written Linday Lohman in your post referring to *Alison* Lohman (from Big Fish); I wondered if you'd been so busy checking out Lindsay Lohan's Marilyn shots from the other week that you've god your wires crossed :)

Duh! Of course you're right. Don't know why I was thinking of them, er, I mean, her...

I'm doing that now. It's not fun. I didn't get all my packing done in time so I've descended on my new place with a million boxes of stuff that needs sorting and am having to ruthlessly chuck away magazines etc. It's very painful!

Mark Salisbury said...

I'm quite terrified by the amount of boxes that were loaded on the lorry yesterday. All of which, of course, need to be unpacked at the other end.

I was actually quite ruthless in throwing things away — saying goodbye to so many magazines — but I clearly still have too many left. I feel another round of prunning is in order...

Just tried to reply but don't think it worked - apogs if I end up posting twice...

I've moved eight(!) times in the last six and a half years. Three were in the last eighteen months. Yet I haven't got any better at packing, unpacking or pruning... the problem is I like having stuff even if I don't use/look at it.

Mark Salisbury said...

My mind boggles at having to do that many moves. And then I get shivers running up and down my spine.

The move, in the end, was probably about as painless as these things can be, but I don't want to do it again for a very long time. A very long time...
