fun and games

This kid doesn't want the party to end just yet

Today at lunchtime I am going to go home and ruthlessly get rid of any clothes I don't wear. I'm also going to (much more difficult) go through my costumes and ruthlessly.. um.. I don't really know what I'm going to ruthlessly do. I'm about to actually have my own crafting/costume storage room for the first time ever since Horokiwi where I lived entirely in one huge room, and I'd like to keep as much as I can. But I have to be realistic. So I'm going to ruthlessly look at them and then probably put them in bins for the move.

I did list the flamenco dress and one of the ridiculous tutus on TradeMe though. Which is basically fishing to see if anyone has as poor a taste as me, in which case I might list some other things.

Any thoughts from those who've been there, or points I should consider, greatly appreciated. I know right now in the middle of a house move is probably not the best time to be making these decisions. My life is upheaval right now. But it'll still be pretty upheaved in a few weeks when I actually have to get onto this stuff. So yeah. Stern admonishments, support, encouragement, advice and criticism all gratefully accepted.

Meanwhile, this made me laugh indiscreetly at work - Kiwi farmer rouses his sheep to political action (1 minute 21 seconds):

What do we want? BAAAAAAA! When do we want it? BAAAAAAA!


[edit] For those who don't give a crap about my academic angst, remember Pronunciation Book? Well, it seems that the folks on reddit have been making a spectrograph image of the audio from the vids. Here is the image so far. Disclaimer: I have no idea if this is legit, but it's interesting.
