Date: 29-30 May 2003 As part of the popular, heart-rending exodus from Austin, I packed up from good old 3006. Everything I own is now in an 8'x7'x5' blue box, somewhere on an interstate on the way to Seattle.

Pillows. This is the wonderful green chair that Leslie and I got from a church garage sale soon after we met. I was sure that there was no way that we were going to be able to fit it in the box, but George came along to help (the 2,387th friend he helped move that week) and figured out how we could stuff it all in there.

One of the great things about having a water bed is that, basically, you get a bed on tap. When it's time to, say, move it across the country, it's as simple as draining and dissassembling it.

In order to accomplish "the great fitting of everything into the box," I disassembled every piece of furniture I own that had screws accessible. This, along with a couch, a squishy chair, and a papasan all went into the box. I really think George should be granted a Mensa membership for his work that day.

The box, nearly full. George himself did not eventually end up inside (but we could have fit him).
