Moving Day

It's moving day. I need a day off. Please come over and help me unpack. Bring wine.

Mist 1

PS: Bring a corkscrew too, I can't find mine.

on my way! and i'll bring you a jar of pickles too honey!

smiles, bee

At 5:54 AM, Anonymous hodgepodger said...

Bring WINE!?! There is no way we could move if we had wine! After two glasses, I would want to just sit on the sofa. For me it might be, bring coffee! LOL!

At 6:00 AM, Blogger wreckless said...

I'll help you in spirit as I'm sure you'll be in the spirits before, during and after moving. Wish I was closer. I really would help!

At 6:18 AM, Anonymous hellohahanarf said...

when i moved i couldn't find my corkscrew so i called the pizza delivery joint and asked them to send one with the driver.

good luck! (what shoes does mist wear on moving day?)

At 6:21 AM, Blogger WanderingGirl said...

That was the biggest drawback of having friends help me pack. Someone packed the corkscrew too early. I was desperate. If you're moving to Nebraska, I'll help unpack.

At 6:40 AM, Blogger Michael C said...

Good luck with the move and congrats.

At 6:56 AM, Blogger stephanie said...

Good luck with the move!

As for the corkscrew - switch to vodka - you don't need one of those to indulge in that.

At 6:59 AM, Blogger Glamourpuss said...

Mate, much as I like you, I haven't unpacked my own boxes yet so distasteful is the operation to me, the chances of getting me over the Atlantic at this stage are negligible, frankly.

But I'm happy to UPS a corkscrew.


At 7:01 AM, Blogger Heather B. said...

I have an arsenal of corkscrews, so what exactly are you looking for? I have my Houdini, a Rabbit, a regular corkscrew, and an electric one. Take your pick.

At 7:12 AM, Blogger Princess of the Universe said...

Corkscrew? Wine in a box is so much more practical!
Good luck with the move Mist~

At 7:22 AM, Blogger NWJR said...

If you had given me the proper address, I would have been there. As it was, I had to drink all the wine by myself.

It was good, too.

Sorry 'bout that!

At 7:35 AM, Blogger Susan said...

I'm on my way. I have all kinds of boxes of wine.

At 7:44 AM, Blogger Natalia said...

Yaay unpacking. Too bad sarcasm doesn't translate well in written comments.


At 8:11 AM, Blogger ajooja said...

I'll screw your cork for ya. ;)

At 8:15 AM, Blogger Jonas said...

I'm sending sardines!

At 8:16 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


I might not give the jar back.


Coffee is like crack for me. You'd want to kill me.


Thanks. I'm not that helpful, so I appreciate it.


Flip flops. Furry.


I wonder how much it could piss off the movers if I told them that I was moving to Nebraska.




Please send vodka.


You are giving in your own special way.


I like the Rabbit. What's the Houdini?

p of u,

I will have to make the truck wait for me at the package store.


Damn. I feel a little resentful now.


I think we are best friends.


I haven't even started thinking about unpacking yet.

At 8:17 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Well, hello...


Packed in olive oil, right?

At 8:31 AM, Blogger Scottsdale Girl said...

YOu don't keep one in your purse?

At 8:38 AM, Blogger Lizza said...

I'll gladly help you unpack, don't ask me to lift anything heavy bad back.

Can I arrange your shoes according to color, heel height, or whatever?

At 8:48 AM, Blogger fringes said...

Are your boxes labeled? Is it too late for packing advice?

At 9:05 AM, Blogger Michael C said...

Hope all goes well. Last time I moved, I lost one of the twins for about 3 days. I think she's over it now though...needless to say, I'll volunteer to help.

At 9:05 AM, Blogger Blitz Krieg said...

I think there will be more than enough whine around.

At 9:10 AM, Blogger Queen of Dysfunction said...

I'll bring a case of Screw Kappa Napa. No corkscrew required.

At 9:12 AM, Blogger My Reflecting Pool said...

I'll bring Vodka for when the wine is done. Congrats on the move!

At 9:54 AM, Blogger Christina_the_wench said...

Um, yeah. Like I got some, um, other stuff I gotta do here first. I'll, um, come over *looks around* a little later.*thinks, in a bout a month after the unpacking is done and there's house warming alcohol left*

At 9:56 AM, Blogger Jonas said...

"Packed in olive oil, right?"

Of course. I don't want to disappoint.

Funny. I'm wearing furry flip-flops, too!

At 10:30 AM, Blogger Akelamalu said...

Are you channeling me again? I've done a post today about wine! I'll go get some now and be right over - what time's the next flight?

At 10:32 AM, Blogger Tera said...

Oh no!!! What will I do without my daily dose of humor...and ESPECIALLY on Friday???

(Sigh) Is there a 12-Step program for that?

At 10:50 AM, Blogger Tammie Jean said...

No corkscrew??? This may be a good time to start borrowing things from the neighbors. This is serious...

At 11:00 AM, Blogger Jocelyn said...

Just crack the head of the bottle off, dramatically, and drink through the jagged glass at the top.

At 11:05 AM, Blogger Stacy said...

Me and the Pinot Pirates, on the way.

At 11:10 AM, Blogger Stepping Over the Junk said...

I wouldn't be able to bear a move. At least you got you just hve to slowly unravel what you;ve got!

At 11:12 AM, Blogger Comedy + said...

Did you say wine? I'm there and I'll bring several corkscrews. Happy moving weekend! I can't wait to hear all the mishaps that will surely take place.

At 11:14 AM, Blogger Claudia said...

I'll bring glasses probably don't know where the wine glasses are some box, somewhere...

At 11:26 AM, Blogger Avitable said...

I'd help, but I'm lazy.

At 11:28 AM, Blogger heartinsanfrancisco said...

You were obviously not a Girl Scout if you don't carry a corkscrew on your key chain.

Ask the resident ghost if she has one.

Lots of luck in the new place!

At 11:48 AM, Blogger Nance said...

I think it says in the Blogger Etiquette protocol that we can only help a blogger move if we appear in their sidebar...didn't I read that someplace? No?

At 11:50 AM, Blogger token said...

You buy wine that needs a corkscrew? I thought those kinds only came as gifts...

At 12:09 PM, Blogger Tracy Lynn said...

I'll be helping 'in spirit' as well, since my position as the Queen Of Lazytowne prohibits me from doing any actual work.

I'm sure you'll appreciate that as you're humping boxes from point A to point B, and I use 'humping' in the military sense, meaning to move heavy or inconvenient things.

At 12:25 PM, Blogger CondoBlogger said...

It's not raining... it always rains on moving day. How can it not be raining?

At 12:35 PM, Blogger Nölff said...

I'll be house hunting this weekend.
Tryin' to find a place in the country because most people annoy me.

I'm tired of the city.

At 1:07 PM, Blogger Chrissy121875 said...

Happy moving day, Mist! Since you're moving, I guess you finally got to clean the cat's litter box? ;) Or did you pack it as is? LOL!

PS. The corkscrew is in the box with all your 'toys' and things of that nature. I don't know why it's in that box. You told me to remind you where it was though ;)

At 3:05 PM, Blogger EsLocura said...

I'm on my way over, can you pick me up at the airport? Bringing some run, we don't have good local wine here.

At 3:47 PM, Blogger Dave said...

I'm glad you scored more boxes, no logos, neatly stacked. Stole 'em didn't you?

At 4:52 PM, Blogger CruiserMel said...

Look what happens when I fall off the blog wagon? You go and effin' MOVE?

Good thing you have that stylish ankle bracelet from the probation office - we can track you now. And of course, I'm bringing wine. Is screwtop okay?

At 5:31 PM, Blogger Malnurtured Snay said...

Corkscrew? Knock the top of the bottle off and be careful of broken glass. :)

At 5:48 PM, Blogger notfearingchange said...

...i'll come over if you come over next month...

At 6:17 PM, Anonymous Karmyn R said...

That is why I always carry a corkscrew in my purse. You never know when you need one.

I'll be there in 5 days....I think that is how long it takes me to drive to the South.

At 6:48 PM, Blogger Neil said...

Remember to bend with the knees when lifting boxes.

At 7:41 PM, Blogger Tug said...

Damn. Is it bad that I got here late & DRANK the wine?

Next time, warning please.

At 8:45 PM, Blogger Todd said...

Hahahaha... You said screw.

Good luck with the move!

At 1:37 AM, Blogger Curiosity.Killer said...


Good LUCK. I usually buy a new corkscrew every time I move, cause I can't bother to unpack to find them. I should have at least a dozen corkscrews by now, but they're no where in sight.

At 3:03 AM, Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Can I bring Vodka? I prefer Vodka.

At 3:35 AM, Blogger Jay said...

Sorry, I've moved the middle of the night no less, to a place I'd never even seen before. Luckily, I did bring a corkscrew.

At 7:02 AM, Blogger brookelina said...

I'll be right over. You'll come by in a month and do the same for me, right?



Good luck!

At 8:53 AM, Blogger Janet said...

Stupid question but are you physically moving or is it your blog? You never know in cyberspace.

At 9:22 AM, Blogger Webmiztris said...

I'm surprised. I assumed you wore your corkscrew on a chain around your neck. ;)

At 9:41 AM, Blogger Arthur Dent said...

I figgured Mist would have the ability to get a cork out of a wine bottle by sheer force of will.

At 9:42 AM, Blogger Arthur Dent said...

PS: I left you a present on my blog ;)

At 11:12 AM, Blogger mist1 said...


Where the hell is my purse?


That sounds perfect. Seriously, that's the kind of help I need.


It's way to late for packing advice. I'm open to unpacking acvice.


I can't find my cat.


There is never more than enough.

q of d,

I love saying Screw Kappa Napa. I'm going to say that for the rest of the day.


You know how I think.


Did I pull that with you once? Because it sounds pretty familiar.


What color is your toenail polish?


If you're volunteering, you can use my sky miles.


Read the archives.


I'm still waiting to see if one of my neighbors has a boyfriend that I can borrow.


I can't risk cutting my face. It's all I have left. My brain has been gone for years.


I wish there really were Pinot Pirates. I would sail with them.


I've been unraveled for a bit now.


The mishaps started the night before. Hence, no post on Friday.


I was thinking of drinking from the bottle.


Just sit there and look pretty.


I once dated a Boy Scout...troop.


I'll be updating my links before I unpack.


I will dry hump the box that my corkscrew is in.


I am blessed.


We can totally do a Country Mouse and City Mouse blog thing.


Funny you should ask about the cat box...


I'll send a driver. I can't be expected to be on time at the airport.


I "borrowed" them.


I chewed off my own foot to get out of that bracelet.


You haven't seen my lips. They are too sweet to endanger them with broken glass.




Nothing is five days away from here. I live in a major hub.


I don't lift. I point my fingers and gesticulate as to where I want stuff to go.


Sigh. I guess I'll have to send you out for another bottle.


Screw is one of my favorite words.


I want to move into your home when you move out. I bet there's a stack of corkscrews.


Of course.


We should have moved together. I would have planned a daylight moved and you would have been responsible for the corkscrew. We are a match made in heaven...or Canada or wherever you are.


Seriously, I'll be there unless I get sick or something.


My blog is not moving. It doesn't have good credit and I won't co-sign for it.


I'm too clumsy for that. I would die of a puncture wound.


I can suck a golf ball through a garden hose, but not a cork out of bottle.

At 12:55 PM, Blogger Gucci Muse said...

At least you have the requisite box seating for your wine drinking.....

At 1:51 PM, Blogger Love Monkey said...

No problem. I have a million corkscrews. You can't take one on a plane so I end up buying one at every destination.

At 3:02 PM, Blogger Pawlie Kokonuts said...

I like your box(es) a lot. Brazillian too, unadorned.

At 5:58 PM, Blogger Jim said...

I was wondering how the move went? I've been gone for a bit and couldn't help or come to your unpacking party.
You aren't going to move your blog too are you? It's fine with me where it is, like it is.
Can I have some of your boxes?

At 8:51 PM, Blogger Williebee said...

Congrats on the move!

Please recycle the boxes.

Or, just put them out on the curb. They'll be gone by morning.

Maybe put some interesting labels on them to spook the neighbors? Like Prozac, Viagra, Smith & Wesson, Dow Chemicals... maybe something from the Love Shack ??

At 6:46 AM, Blogger * (asterisk) said...

Good luck with the move. I hate moving house.

At 7:18 AM, Blogger Lee said...

Gee whiz, you'd think you'd know by now, the corkscrew belongs on your keychain.

At 10:09 AM, Anonymous Kristyn said...

While I'm certain you didn't, I hope you had a good moving day! :) Personally, I hate moving.

At 10:13 AM, Blogger velvet girl said...

Oops, missed it. Hope you found/bought a corkscrew. Good luck at the new domicile!

At 12:48 PM, Blogger Postmodern Sass said...

Can I bring a bottle of Glenfidich instead, and some of my boxes that I still haven't unpacked since I moved to California eight months ago? You can unpack mine and I'll unpack yours. It'll be more fun that way.

At 1:38 PM, Anonymous Amy said...

I would totally come and help but, well, I'm more or less flat broke and the travel would be a nightmare :-P

Good luck though. I sort of like moving. It's exciting.

At 2:19 PM, Blogger James Burnett said...

I don't have any wine. But I have a spare pinata I can bring.

At 2:37 PM, Blogger Spellbound said...

I have a case of two buck chuck under the church pew in my front hall and I decided to open a bottle just to make sure it was a good batch. It was. Sorry I missed the unpacking.

At 8:20 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I think I even have a milk crate that doubles as a bistro table.


Who has ever heard of someone taking a plane hostage with a corkscrew?


Clean. Simple. Minimalist.


You can have my boxes when I am finished playing in my fort.


Lord, I wish I had Prozac boxes. I need the neighbors to treat me gently.


I usually hate moving too, but this time, it was a good way to get rid of stuff that I don't need. I suppose I could have had a yard sale.


All that says is, "Officer, I have been drinking."


I'll tell you all about it.


I like the word domicile. I also like the word abode.


"You can unpack mine and I'll unpack yours." Great pick up line.


I'm not flat broke, but I am flat chested. It doesn't really have any impact on traveling, except that I can run up and down stairs.


The pinata was invented by a person who hated noses, teeth, and fine china.


I have yet to experience Two Buck Chuck. I feel so unworldly.

At 11:30 AM, Blogger melanie said...

did you upgrade? :ask:

At 12:21 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


No. It's actually a van down by the river. But the amenities make up for it.

At 3:46 PM, Blogger melanie said...

EXCELLENT! i need a motivational speaker for a birthday party next week. I will provide wine!

At 5:50 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


I have always wanted to be a motivational speaker. I've just never had the drive to make it happen.

At 2:48 PM, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

Sorry, late for the meeting. I brought a box of something. It might've been wine in its past life. Could even be beer. Or, if we're lucky, a glorious hybrid!

At 6:30 PM, Blogger mist1 said...


Hybrids are so environmentally responsible.
