Ode to my future sprains

I've decided to put away the indoor Christmas decorations. What can I say, I'm already over it. The outside lights are staying a while, though. It was a bitch getting those things up, and I like colored lights.

I've also decided to move some furniture around. New year, new(ish) look for the place, etc. The tv was sitting on top of a lame, beat-up old cart -- one of those pasteboard things with wheels and two shelves that they sell at Walmart. I've decided to put the tv on the tall Danish-style cupboard-with-shelves things that I bought at the second-hand furniture store a year or so ago. It was in the dining area, so I dragged it over to the living room area, after taking all the typewriters off it. (That was what was on the shelf unit before.) The tv is just a substitute for the flat panel I'm going to get some day -- not so much because I am trendy as because it's all part of my stripping-down plan. I'm going to get a flat-panel lcd tv that is not more than 20 inches big. And then I'll cart the crappy old tv to the dumpster. Of course, it's not a priority, as I don't watch enough tv for it to matter. By the time I'm ready to buy the flat panel they should have gone down in price even more. But I don't want a huge one -- I think huge tvs in little apartments are just embarrassing, and I don't watch that much tv.

All this, of course, means I've had to move a million things around, and I'll probably be sore as hell tomorrow. Don't care. I've got ibuprofen and wine.

I just realized I forgot to put in a tag which shows which category my posts are going into. Well, so far they've all gone into the "Blah Blah Blah" category. I don't know why MT is never set up with the tags already in the template as a default, but that's is the wonderful world of MT for you. Wordpress had weirdnesses too.

In my family the Christmas decorations always stayed up until at least New Year's Day. Any time after Jan 2 they could come down. My parents still keep to that practice - I would, had I decorated my house this year (I kept expecting to have to go overseas week by week and didn't want to put stuff up I might have to yank down the next day).

Furniture moving is not really a guy thing. The stuff in my house stays largely where it was planted eight years ago when I moved in. It only gets shuffled around if a new piece shows up and requires a reconfiguration. My Mom, on the other hand, gets the bug about every six months and if I'm home I end up going over to lift and carry. My Dad doesn't have the luxury of getting to leave the country for extended periods so he always ends up doing it.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
