Sifting through memories...

Hey, remember Kosh and I having to move twice in two months last year? That’s when we couldn’t deny that we had WAAAAY too much stuff... and a lot of it were HIS things, not mine or ours, so it was easy for me to nag/hint/cajole/threaten him to get rid of the stuff... but I knew I was just as guilty as he was, the only difference was my stuff was halfway around the world.

This trip back, one of my goals was to downsize even further whatever stuff I’ve been holding on to. I’ve already set aside a whole big bag’s worth of tee shirts, office pants, and other random items to give away. Then I stumbled across a shoebox of my cassettes.... including my mix tapes from high school and college. I’m assuming they are unplayable, but will give them all a spin for old time’s sake. More importantly, however, I will be documenting them all here before getting rid of them, so that I have a record of the songs I used to listen to 2 decades ago. So please bear with me over the next few many posts, k? I’ll plan to have pix too, once I figure out the best way to get them uploaded.

Btw I’ll be keeping pseudo-tabs on my food intake on my other/new blog, if you are interested in following along... this is where I was keeping a record of my April resolution of exercise and raw/lightly processed food intake, and I plan to continue to use IQ vs lbs as a place for more health- and weight loss-related posts, so bookmark/subscribe if you’re interested, k?

.... and just for the record, I showered FOUR times today! At 6am when I woke up; 11:30am after yoga; 5:30pm before heading out for a birthday party; at a little past midnight when I got back from said party. Yes, I needed each and every one of them. Humidity is F.U.N!


  1. I want to know what is on your mix tapes!!! I'm sure they are still playable--if mine are, yours are!

  2. Lin> when the tapes have been sitting in a shoebox in a cupboard in a hot and humid clime that Malaysia has, you too wouldn't have much hope for them. ... Started listening to one, though, and there's hope! Apart from the beginning that hiccuped and warped a bit, it seems to be playing fine! w00t!

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
