Not Sure What To Call This Post

Today was my last day at work.  Hurrah!  I'm half way through a bottle of malbec, my preferred red wine.  I have some work to do tonight, but I'm kind of procrastinating.  My minimal goal for tonight is to to get three boxes of books packed up and mailed out (tomorrow).

I think I'm making real progress on my move though.  I have my electricity being shut off the day I leave Portland, my internet being shut off on the 4th (ugh), and....well I guess those are my two big bills.  I'm in the middle of cleaning the bedroom and moving all big boxes to the living room (first room cleaned).  Then it's on to the kitchen.  Once I get that done, moving will be a cinch.

I should probably call my godfather, who is also doubling as my realtor.  I need to see what I need to do to secure that house.  One of my first thoughts when I looked at pictures of the house was that it needed some new siding because shit brown ain't my color, daddy-o.  I haven't played around with many color combinations yet, but my first thought was to go with a light-medium grey siding and a bright trim.

Medium grey vinyl siding
Behr's Cool Lava for a trim color?
I kind of like the color combination.  What do you think?  I want it to say rockabilly, but not with over punctuation.

Here's the house as it is now.
Brown siding and partially unsided new addition behind the spruce.
