Scorpion

two requests

Request #1: Manual Labor
This Tuesday, I need to move a handful of items to the curb, so they can picked up for bulk trash on Wednesday. None of them are painfully heavy (couch, dresser, bookcase, etc.) but are too awkward for me to handle myself. Would someone be available around 7 on Tuesday to help me carry things out? It'd be mucho appreciated.

Request #2: House Invasion
Wednesday night, I am fishing for an invitation to someone's house to watch this show called Lost. Ideally, this kind soul would also have a VCR they're not using, so I can tape the episode as well. As above, it'd be mucho appreciated if someone can host me.
