Sitting here at work watching the Michael Jackson memorial service at the Staples Center. It's a fitting tribute so far. I'm finding myself getting a little sad. Gotta say, no matter how strange he may have gotten in later years, the man is a legend. His upbringing fucked him up in a major way and he definitely isn't completely to blame for that. His dad should be ashamed of the abuse that he put Michael through. All in all, I feel like Michael was always well-meaning. And he truly did help break down boundaries and really change the face of pop music and black America. And the music, man the music! No denying that he was a rare talent and consumate performer who will never be replaced. Rest in peace Michael. ETA: I must say, having the pallbearers wear one sequined glove and sunglasses is quite a touching tribute.

After a long absence, I guess I should start blogging again (since I can't get one certain person to join Facebook!). I'll have to put my LJ app on my iPhone to use.

So I'm moving out. Most people know that by now. For those who don't, my friend Laurie bought a 4br house in Cordova and I'm moving into her upstairs bedroom. Very exciting right? Well, yes...except for the process of moving. I had NO idea how much crap I had accumulated over the years. It's utterly overwhelming! I'm making small amounts of progress though. I've learned that the key is to tackle small projects instead of looking at it as a whole. And, luckily, I'll be able to leave some stuff here until I can finish going through it all. I just keep telling myself how happy I'll be once I've purged a lot of the junk I don't need.

Back to packing...
