The good thing about this move is the company is paying for the pickup shipping and drop off so I dont have to touch any furniture.

Also, I am getting rid of SO much crap I dont need which is awesome.

Yes, that is one of the perks of moving!

When we used to move almost every year, I would always say, "Before we move next, we are going to GET RID OF SO MUCH JUNK!" 

Now it's been six years since our last move.  I hope we never move again.

This commercial tells me there are now The Twilight Saga: Eclipse toys in Burger King Kids Meals. Really? Aren't these films rated PG-13? 5-10 year old kids know of/like Twilight?

I would have thought it were rather difficult to avoid the Twilight series by now. I haven't seen any of the films nor read any of the books and even I have some general knowledge about the licence.

Nor have I, but for a Burger King kid's meal? The kids in the commercial looked to be about 7 or 8 years old, not really people I would peg as Twilight target audience. And, from what I remember from the packages, the toys they make are usually for ages 3 and up. Would a 3 year old child really be excited to get a Twilight toy?

Point taken, although I don't have the energy or will to think much of the matter.
