Today should be the last day of moving stuff from one house to the other. There's probably still weeks of unpacking to do. But hey, you gotta find the silver linings right? Well as I woke this morning, planning in my head how the day would go, I thought of our garage which is no loaded with stuff looking for a place to live within the new house. I caught myself stacking boxes in my mind, figuring out how best to utilize the space available. My gamer brain quickly distorted this, and a joke idea was born. Sure it was born out of a late 80's meme (before there were such things as memes). But, I think most of you will be able to relate.
The direct culprit for my Tetris moving boxes idea is my wealth of toys. I have a LEGO Star Wars collection that is somewhat ridiculous. Just behind that is the massive collection of Gundam models I have. When we were first looking at this house I was picturing where I would be able to display all of this stuff, since it's been boxed and stored in the crawlspace where no one could see it for well over a year now. Now that I have it all here, I'm thinking "man, we need to have a serious yard sale". Sure I love my toys. But with Gundams and LEGOs I derive most of my enjoyment from actually assembling them. Once they're together, I just don't feel the need to stare at them each day.
Well, off I go to get the last bit of this stuff done. If you'd like to sympathize with me through gaming, you can hit up tetrisfriends.com. There are some freebie versions of the game there. Just imagine that the little cubes are boxes packed full of household goods.
