I don't want to do much if any touring or exploring, as that costs money, money I would much rather save for Thailand. Oh, what to do... what to do...
My apartment is already fairly empty and quite clean, as I had to get it ready to for the landlord to show right after I gave him my 30 days notice earlier this month. Sam the Landlord was all over it. He rented my soon-to-be-former home on the very first night he showed it. I was surprised in two ways, first, my miniature dungeon on an apartment is soo small and unappealing, I thought it would be tough to rent out, and second, who commits to renting a place a month in advance?
After clearing it with Sam, I thought I found a small solution to one of my biggest problems I have left: getting some value out of the personal possessions I have spent 20 years collecting. The only times I have sold stuff on Craigslist, I found it kind of tedious and not worth my time for the small amounts I was earning. So, I posted this note on a wall before I left for work on the day Sam was showing my place (I wasn't there for the showing):
That night, when Sam told me he'd rented my place, he didn't mention anything about the future tenant expressing any interest in my stuff. I was kinda bummed. My bed cost me $1000 seven years ago. The TV cost me $600 15 months ago. As for the furniture and the rest of the crap, yeah, I might get those prices on Craigslist, but oh the hassle involved versus monetary payout ratio was rather grim.
Tonight, I come home to find this note taped to my front (back) door:
YES! The bed would be a real bitch to move, and the TV is mounted on the wall. Now, I don't have to move either and I'll be getting what equals 10,000 Thai Bhat out of the deal. 10K Thai Bhat buys one roughly 200 bowls of noodles or two months rent for a cheap place.
Best of all is the back-up plan for Bliss the Kitty. I'm sure she'll be traumatized enough losing me as her papa; losing the place she's staked out as HER territory these last two years, that would be even harder on her. I think I'll leave her with this Rita woman (of course, I'll have to meet her first and make sure she's okay), the future tenant of my apartment.
