That's all she wrote.

Well, the movers come today. And they’re taking away all of our stuff. We have our parking spots blocked off using empty laundry containers. And I’m not kidding. I used an old ruler to tape the sign to a crate. Couple our ghetto reserve parking techniques with Toby’s seatless scooter and my Sony monitor, and we’ve named ourselves the trashiest couple on this gay block.

I also got a new phone number. I’m now a TMobile customer as ATT strapped on a Big Fred and had their way with me. And the torment only cost me 400 bucks. Yeah. It’s now official. We are moving. I have a 415 area code.

Comcast is here to take away the internet as well. And cable. So while the rest of the nation is watching the last episode of Friends on the TV, Toby and I will be sitting around creating finger puppets on our wall. I actually considered taking the TV with us in the van. Then it occurred to me how heavy that damn TV really is.

And there is a minor snag in our departure. It seems we will not roll out until Saturday. There was a mini-van mishap.

All that said, this may be my last post for a few days. Until we find a TMobile hotspot or hijack someone’s DSL.

  2. You know, it’s kinda nice that you’ll have a different memory when people are getting all JFK with “Friends” with the “Where were you when the last episode aired” crap. You’ll have this romantic story of spending your last night in your apartment and starting a new chapter in your lives.

    Jesus, I should really consider writing Danielle Steele-like novels with the way my mind just made that up. I mean well.

    while I can’t say that I’ve ever heard the phrase “big fred” used quite that way, the fact that at&t strapped it on to have their way with mihow gave me some pretty significant clues.

  10. You guys need a theme song. Like a tv show theme song. There might be a banjo in it – I’ll let you know.

    Drive safely. No freaking out.
    Onward! xo

  12. I nominate Piazza, New York Catcher by Belle and Sebastian for the Mihow TobyJoe theme:

    Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world
    I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
    How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
    How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
    Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
    A trail for the devil to erase
    San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
    Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
    We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
    We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
    About the saddest book you ever read
    It always makes you cry

  14. DonaldEugene – I relayed your theme song choice to Mihow and she loved it. She said to say thanks. So, here it is.

  15. Thank you scbob. I’ll get to work on the banjo arrangement.

    And for the record Mike Piazza is not gay. Just ‘cause a guy likes wearin’ designer clothes and smellin’ nice…

  16. correction – it is properly called “super big fred” that has been strapped on, and really, what can’t be done with a little cocaine and crisco…
