Help wanted

Who: You, if you are reasonably able-bodied and in the DC area between December 1 and December 7.
What: Moving party
Where: My place
When: Saturday, December 1 through Friday, December 7

Well, the short version is that after almost five years here, Foxchase management has decided that my housekeeping doesn't met their standards, and they're giving me the bum's rush. I'll be looking for a new apartment (preferably in Alexandria ) next week and hope to have one nailed down in time for the party, otherwise I'll be putting all my stuff in storage and seeing what the VA does for homeless vets. In the meantime, I'll be boxing up all my books, DVDs, games and spare clothes while chucking out all the old, useless, outgrown and/or nonfunctional stuff that's piled up around here since I moved in back in 2007.

Unfortunately, I have little to offer besides toil, tears and sweat, as I'll be donating blood on Monday. :)
This will mostly be you kind and generous folks planting an ob on me for future lifting and carrying of stuff.

If you're not in the area but still want to help, please consider throwing a couple of bucks into the Box & Tape fund.
There aren't as many bookstores as there used to be, so getting hold of book boxes will be more difficult, and I expect I'll probably have to buy some from Uline or someone like them.
