I am planning on moving from Seattle to San Rafael!

So here’s my deal. I am flying twice to California this month. Once for Betty’s funeral (next weekend), and once for spring break (on the 19th). Both times I expect to fill two suitcases with ITEMS. That might take care of something like half of my possessions.

But I don’t know about the actual time for me to move down. There are a few things, like my computer, printer, monitors, and a few other things that shouldn’t go on a plane. So I have to think about driving down…

So I’m trying to think of the most economical way to do this. Budget is $200 for a one-way 10′ truck rental from Seattle to San Rafael, not including gas money (around another $200). But I don’t know if I’ll really need an entire moving van; especially with my two plane trips I’ll probably only need a car.

Car rental places do rent cars to people under 25, for a small fee. But I’m having trouble finding one that lets you drop the car off in another state. Enterprise does only in-state for a select few states. I don’t know about any other ones.

Or is there another option I’m missing? Anyone in Seattle going down to California soon that wants to take all my stuff? Anything else? Bleeeh, I just need advice as usual.


So fake tans have been all the rage for a while but I’m starting to see a new trend: FAKE fake tans. Where the person is so Oompa-Loompa that they look like they’ve come off of a rotisserie. Not just on those crazy New Jersey guys, but on girls, too.

I just want to ask before the craze gets even crazier: does anyone find that even remotely attractive or interesting? I personally would have trouble having anything to do with anyone like that, even (especially?) for casual dating. But I mean, there has to be SOME logical reason behind the action and attraction. Anyone?
