Relatively painless reappraisal

I got to thinking yesterday about Valentine's Day on account of windelina's post on the various kinds of non-romantic love. It set me to thinking about why I'm not bitter or maudlin about today; basically, this is a celebration of passion, and I don't feel that way about anyone right now. There's women I'm affectionate towards, but I don't have any interest in pursuing any of those relationships because I don't see them moving to the DC area with me, and I'm sure as hell not staying here.

Which brings up another area of my life that I'm going to be addressing over the next few months. P led the way on this, but truth to tell I've been mulling this over for a while: the reduction of my household goods to some quantity that fits fairly easily into a 19' U-haul, or better yet a panel truck. A lot of the books I have I could just as easily sell and replace once I get to wherever I'll be settling down, and I have a fair amount of other stuff that's just junk: empty CD cases, old paperwork and bills, clothing that hasn't fit me at any point in the last decade and isn't likely to in the next. So into the dumpster or off to Goodwill it goes, if I can't sell it for some fraction of its former worth. With any luck, by the time I'm done it won't cost me an arm and a leg to get moved.
