Tough News

Both of my readers will be disappointed to note that the blog will continue on its temporary hiatus until I get re-settled. As it stands now, I can't move into my new place until mid-July. Meanwhile, I start work Monday. This presents something of a challenge.

My Last Night in Midland

I've waited years for this night, and now it's finally here. One word comes to mind: YESSSSSSSS!

Got Books?

I wound up with about 25 boxes of books. Now maybe I can pack something else besides books.

Pack-a-Thon 2004

...commences this weekend. So far I have about a dozen big boxes packed up, accounting for about half of my books. Since I'll unavoidably be moving into a much smaller apartment (or Steve's house), I'm guessing most of these poor books are going to stay in boxes for a while.

I'm dreading packing up the kitchen, with all the breakable beer glasses, dishes, absinthe-ware, and so forth. Not to mention minor appliances.

But alas, the inexorable March from Midland must go on. Lawyers. Shady apartment management companies. Frustrating HR people. Inhospitable rental costs. Lots of tiki stuff, books, African masks, and assorted gewgaws. Somehow it will all have to work out by June 28.

So, anyone wanna hang out in Ann Arbor next Saturday, helping me look for the Ultimate (Cheap) Downtown Apartment, in between stops at Ashley's/Grizzly Peak/Arbor Brewing/Etc., etc.?

Everybody Signed? Yes. Good. On We Go!

Official Start Date: June 28.

The strong gravitational pull of Midland's suckiness won't keep me here. Mr. Data, take us out of orbit! I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run! Talk to the hand!

What a relief it will be when this place appears in my rearview mirror for the last time.
