I never knew how much shit I owned until I had to pack it all into boxes. Without a doubt, the garbage men who are “lucky” enough to pick up my trash hate me. The amount of money that I’ve wasted on toys, clothes and odd items is staggering.
Mrs. Fly wanted me to give the garbage men $100 “for their trouble.” However, I overslept and didn’t get the “opportunity” to throw them some soft dollars. On top of that, my brand new refrigerator has a condensation issue and is collecting ice under the freezer, which is causing it to leak, every so often. I’ve contacted the fucked-faces at Samsung; but they aren’t too interested in my plights.
After I move to the new house, Mrs. Fly has 10 years worth of renovations scheduled, in her never ending attempts to bankrupt me. I am sure she sits in a dark room plotting ways to ruin me. It must come as a great surprise to her how the money keeps flowing in. She’s never asked how I make so much money. I assume she believes I am in the mafia, rubbing out people for sport and leisure. Nonetheless, I cannot wait to breathe in some fresh sheet rock and step on some wet paint.
As for this market: it looks tired. It needs to unwind and go on vacation. Some of my stocks look good, like RBCN. But on the whole, there is nothing here to get excited about. I tried my hand with nuts on Friday, buying up DMND. But that’s gone to shit today, alongside everything else. Let’s see if any buyers step in later on today.

The Fly is God.
Not quite. A mortal being with giant balls of steel, however.
Moving sucks. But the hard part is now over…
The hard part is just beginning if The Fly plans to live in the place during renovations. We bought a house in need of work 4 years ago, and 5 reno projects later its perfect. But prepare for dust, noise, major inconvenience, project delays, and cost overruns. If the house was built before 1978, you gotta worry about the lead paint dust to prevent you kids from losing 30 IQ point. Ours was built in 1895 and loaded with lead.
Are you and Scott going to be in the same general area?
Yes, we’re now roomates now.
Oh you shall be so gay!
Fly, do you think we fill the professional gap from 6/29 before moving higher?
i told you to buy $JOEZ jeans up 14% today, its gonna go parabolic, earnings july 16
You have to get one of those Sub-Zero built in jobs for $10,000. When it breaks they don’t give a shit either.
Should go higher for the next week or two.
I like this post – brings out the warm side.
Once I became unemployed and had to scrimp…I then realized how much good stuff was being thrown out curbside every week. It’s easy to furnish a house, getting the house is the hard part.
I feel for you Fly. Moving is the worst. I believe if the devil gets my soul and places me in Hell, I will be moving for all eternity.
Funny how they don’t question it, as long as it’s there
Make sure to mark the box FRAGILE with the fake decorative palm trees inside. You will need those at the new place.
If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.
What?! No garage sale? And I wanted so badly to bid for one of those African masks ((
Just unpacked the last of the boxes from our move in November.
Moving sucks, but it also gives you a chance to throw out a lot of garbage. And when you’re done, you’ve got your own, personal Gretsky house!
All the best, Señor.
Hopefully the new house is smaller or the same size. If it is bigger you risk collecting even more sh*t than you have now.
Why in the hell ever buy smaller? Unless. of course, one has achieved 80+ years of dissolute living and is no longer in the mood to accumulate shit.
You’re right. The same size is probably the way to go. I could use a little bit bigger house since there are eight of us but I don’t think I’d want to go more than 4,000 sq ft. Just more to clean and clutter IMO.
Welcome to the club Senor Trop. My wife has a new kick believing extreme couponing will save me some more $$; and though it doesn’t exist uin Canada as it does in the US, she still does it instead of finding a real job and I’m finding we are ever so close to being shoe-ins for the asshat of the year candidates on “Hoarders”…
LOL. My wife is a little bit of a packrat (teachers tend to be). You never know when you will need the blah, blah, blah. You then add all the kids and the gifts from grandparents. Decluttering is like pulling teeth. I now find myself throwing away good crap, without her knowing, to just get it out of my life.
I’d like to know WTF am I gonna do with all this effin’ mustard?????
is that the Samsung oversize with french door and freezer drawer? God hope not I just got mine put in last year, after my reno. dont need the hassle!
5-Star Fly. Great post!
$100 tips for the garbage man?! I would fire the wife! She needs to learn not to throw away money like it’s free. She also needs to know the property taxes in NJ already entitles her to trouble the garbage man 10 times more.
