What Ho OrangeChums! I hope all is well with you!

I'm getting sick to death of the inside of the subculture and finding paint on all my clothes (even the ones I change out of when I'm there... wtf!) I really need to get it finished in the next couple of weeks but this is rendered difficult by the fact I have no holiday left so can't do daytime stuff, I'm away over the bank holiday weekend (anniversary), there's a metric fucktonne left to do and co-ordinating people is like herding cats!

One thing I could do with is a reliable person to sort out the freecycling. there's a bunch of chairs and other bits and bobs that *someone* *somewhere* might like. In fact I'll shout out here in case anyone wants anything or knows of a home for it.

We have:
27 (I think) wooden chairs that stack - upholstered in various fabrics - used for burlesque nights in the past
one tall freezer in working order but not particularly pretty - handy for extra capacity in a cellar or garage or what have you
Assorted glasses - champagne flutes, wine glasses, stella pint glasses.
leatherette bucket chairs - ok condition and leatherette stools - less good.
some little round wooden ikea side tables
a couple of low square wooden tables.
a couple of 'phono' tables
a brown fabric 2 seater sofa - a bit dusty but fine

let me know if you want them cos I hate scrapping stuff. there may be a bean bag left but I'm trying to think of somewhere to keep it for myself ;) or if you feel like being in charge of freecycling them?

anyhoo tonight should be productive. Al, graeme (the mercian) and D should be helping me so some of the shifting should get done. the stripping of the walls of the gents hasn't progressed and I still really need a couple of people to get on with that so I can get it papered.

I'm having tomorrow off - unity day and Jim's post-apocalyptic party are calling and I need some new work shoes so shopping must occur. no heavy drinking for me this week though after I was a disgrace at Adam's wedding reception last week. I think stress+freeflowing wine=bad

before I tried to post it and realised that they've propper blocked LJ at work now :*(
very sad.
I forsee a lot more dwarf fortress to fill up the hours :P

If you can't find anyone else to do freecycle stuff I could- although with working odd hours you might be better with somebody that has normal workdays!

Was just going to say I could do it if you wanted - just dump everything in our garage and I could pop it on. As the free-cycler, you tell people when it's convenient for them to collect...

If you need me, give me a shout, but it looks like you have other volunteers too :)

isn't your garage full of Yurt? might be good to know though if time is running short on the disposal front :)

There is a yurt, 2 bikes and a drawer unit, but there's still lots of space... If things can be stacked / piled then I imagine most of it (if not all) would fit...

If it's a timing thing I have a spare shed which a lot of that stuff could probably be put in. Then I could freecycle it at a leisurely pace. From the sounds of it the tables and chairs would probably fit, the freezer might be a bit too much though (especially getting it to the shed).

It obviously depends on how much space this stuff would take up, but if it'll fit I have no problem with it.

My main restriction would be that I doubt I'll have much spare time before Infest, so if it can wait until after then I should be able to manage it.

To get round blocks, go to

Because https encryption works before the http layer, it gives an uncrackable tunnel out. Mind to go directly to the https connection though and not the plain http one - that way your sysadmins don't even know where you're going unless they actually scan the dns resolver logs.

Can help transport stuff if that helps. Can't take any though, still trying to declutter my own life at the mo.

I will have a word with The Duchess in York and see if they are interested cos they might well take all that of your hands in one go if free :)

we have a couple of things of unopened postmix too - probably something terribly unpopular like tonic though - will have a look.

the wine glasses and champagne flutes probably aren't of use unless the sell wine by the bottle as they're unmarked. but we only sold wine by the bottle so it wasn't an issue

Ah, maybe should have read this before sending you a message (I'm just trying to catch up from spending two days away). I assume there is nothing to do next weekend then? Sorry again for being so unhelpful, I really did want to help out.

There will be an end to it all though, and then you will finally be free to have your own life back. *hugs*
