Only the essentials.

So over the weekend, I moved my desk upstairs, into the living room. Roughly, I cleared off both the desk and the smaller return section, putting all the stuff on the downstairs guest bed. Then Kate and I moved them upstairs, and then I brought up the essential pieces, namely:

  * laptop, external keyboard/mouse, external monitor
  * desk lamps
  * ethernet switch
  * backup harddrive
  * USB hub
  * faux ivory bust of Arnold Schwarzenegger
      * telephone
  * my two notebooks, one for work, one for personal matters

So the real question is: what the hell is in the piles of crap left downstairs on the guest bed? As a follow-on, am I really going to sort through them before we leave for NZ?
