Folks, a request: I am up at Ma's for a few days (Silver Spring, MD) to load up a moving truck with a bunch of my stuff from her house to drive down to NC. Unfortunately, the folks who we thought we had lined up seem to have hit a snag with their schedule and probably won't be available to help load on Saturday. (I've managed to partially herniate a disc and have been forbidden from lifting more than 10 pounds, which is why I need some help.) Anybody in the area have recs/advice? I would totally throw a "help me load the truck" party, but it's not just going to be lots of boxes of books; there'll be some fairly heavy furniture. I don't know where I could get a couple-three folks on short notice though.

Comment below, or drop me a line at my username at gmail. Thanks in advance.

ETA: Movers found! Thanks.

I am less than useless when it comes to lifting heavy things (arms like spaghetti noodles, alas), but if you want to grab lunch or something while you're in town let me know!

The tradition in the area when one can't find enough friends to help one move is to call "the deaf movers". (If you pay them in cash they are often willing to give you a discount!)

You're welcome!

Even if you don't sign or fingerspell, you should be okay for communication -- they bring their iPhones with them and will do the type-out-and-show-you thing -- but have a notebook and pen handy to scribble down things that you can't communicate by pantomime, and if there's any special handling instructions for any of the funiture/boxes/etc, write them down ahead of time to save a bit of time. Also, bottles of water/Gatorade.

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
