Okay, I *really* need help Sunday
So far, we basically have nobody helping unload the truck on Sunday morning, and I'm starting to get worried. It's looking like I'm going to be flying down to NJ on Friday, helping pack Saturday afternoon, and spending all evening driving the truck back up to MA. I am a smidgeon tense about the prospect of the two of us then overdoing it trying to unload the whole damned 16' truck by ourselves after that.

We'll be unloading on Sunday morning, into my storage unit at Storage Unlimited (17 Terry Ave, Burlington). The plan is to start at about 10am; if we get enough helpers, we should be done by noon. Lunch will be provided for everybody who helps out.

I'm calling in favors here, folks -- I've helped half of you move at one time or another, and I need the help. If you've already got plans or health issues, don't sweat it, but please -- if you're free Sunday morning, we need the assist. Please comment here or email me if you can help: knowing in advance would do a lot to ease my mind, and 6-8 strong backs should be plenty. And please spread the word.

I'm in. See you at about 10 this Sunday in Burlington.

I am good to go for 10 - 12. See you then!

Thanks -- glad to have you...

I did not comment before, for lack of a ride, but if someone can get me up there, I'd be glad to help.

Ah - more details might help. I'm in Winter Hill, Somerville, and I can get to any spot on the T to meet.

Ditto, but Harvard Ave, Allston.

Ditto ditto. If we can all make it to Alewife at the same time, that would make for a pretty efficient pickup.

Okay, great. I think it'll be Kendall, but I'll set things up via email.

What's your email address? I'm setting up rides in email...

First initial last name at gmail. I just sent you an email.

Okay, cool. I think we have rides -- I'll send email.

Ack. We are flying in from San Francisco that day. We won't be able to help. :(

Yeah, prior plans happen. But thanks for thinking of me...

Sorry - the timing is just perfectly wrong for us as we're booked every Sunday until noon.

If you are desperate, I can come up from CT...

Hopefully not *that* desperate, but thanks...

I would totally come help, but am going to be in Vermont then. :\

Yeah, Anne mentioned that previously. Thanks anyway, and have fun...

Unless, of course, we have to stay here this weekend to deal with the cracked sewer pipe (oh please no) so that we can shower and stuff. In which case, yes, we'll come help you move because it will get us out of the house. :}

We kinda hope that doesn't happen, though.

Yeah, on balance I'll cross my fingers and hope that that doesn't happen -- you deserve a little time *not* thinking about the house so much...

I would be there but for being in DC for Intercon MidAtlantic.

One of the better definitions of "prior plans". But thanks for thinking of me...

I'll be in FL, but drop new_man a note. He's not on LJ so much these days.

We've actually been directly in touch, but thanks...

Sorry, Kiena's wedding's tomorrow. Won't be able to help pack truck tomorrow or drive it or... well, can't help really at all. Sorry.
