I sold Garuda today. He is going to a fine home with my friend [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson, but it still hurts. It makes the whole leaving here thing feel very immediate. I haven't driven in close to four months, so there was no use in keeping him, and all I was doing was paying insurance without actually having a reason to. I'll be getting my things out of him tomorrow or Monday.

I had a couple of friends come over today to buy books and other things. One of them spent $666, which gave us all a laugh. Pagans. Dude. That was so not planned. There are still a lot of books, music, and movies here, and I have a bunch of Pagan ritual tchatchkes as well. If people want to come and see what kind of Pagany things I have, please let me know and we can schedule a look. I'm not listing anything online for that. You can still look at the book listing until next Thursday, July 4th. If you're in the US and you want stuff, that's the deadline. I've decided I'm not going to try to do the Ebay thing because I won't be able to get acceptable shipping cost estimates to post on the entries. So next weekend I'll be hauling everything into Seattle (with help, obviously) and heading over to used book shops and probably Easy Street to see if they will buy the music.

One of the places I'd queried for a shipping estimate for Italy got back to me with a rough figure of $4,500 given the information I was able to provide. I know that the reality will be somewhat different, but at least it gives me a ballpark figure to work with. I thanked them and said if the visa was approved, I'd get back to them when I had more information about exactly where I would end up, and I filed it in the email folder with all the stuff I'm dealing with for the Italy relocation.

[livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor and [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson were here tonight, not just to deal with selling Garuda, but because [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson brought over a Troma drag movie, "Vegas in Space," that really kind of has to be seen to be... on second thought, no. Don't see the movie. omg. soooooo bad. I say this as someone who actually thinks "Plan 9" is pretty hilariously bad. This one was just painful. It had some moments but I think the colors just made my eyeballs boil. The two of them are going down to Seattle tomorrow morning for Pride but I am not up to it.

I got tickets to a Bach lute performance on July 11th, which [livejournal.com profile] ingvisson will take me to. I also picked up tickets for Steamcon for me and [livejournal.com profile] gra_is_stor, as prices go up on the first of July.

I'm feeling tired and sad and stressed, but that's how these things go. I'll be fine in a while.
