adventures in cardboard
When you live in a place with rooms you can designate one room BOX MAYHEM ROOM.
That does not work in a loft. It is one big room. That just becomes BOX MAYHEM ROOM.
It is a default thing.
Usually when you need boxes you must trot out to a box providing store and pay unreasonable amounts for cardboard boxes or you have to depend on movers to provide cardboard for more unreasonable amounts and all of this usually involves a lot of swarming around carrying boxes and paying unreasonable amounts.
It is all so unreasonable I kept a lot of boxes on hand for a long time through intangible temporary road moves just so I did not have to do that.
[That is very bad feng shui by the way. It means you are expecting to move on soon. I was too. Till I got to the loft. Then I disposed of the old boxes. Which all looked like cardboard box versions of a passport — dates and places crossed out and scrawled over again and again.]
These new boxes were delivered. All I did was push buttons on a website and presto boxes and packing materials were delivered to my door.
How cool is that?
And they come in packaged groups for less cash so the boxes are just as reasonable as any place I could go get them myself [except behind Ralph’s after a produce delivery for free — but hello lettuce slime — and okay no boxes are reasonable but these are not more unreasonable] and sometimes more reasonable and —
Shipping is free.
[This place so rocks.]
I picked up keys today.
Cable goes in Monday.
Time to pack.
