HAHAHAH! I've got internet... finally!!! I've not been totally without, as I've stolen bandwidth when I've had the chance, but whoever I stole from seemed to be on top of things... they kept shutting me down. I guess I deserved it, but it still makes them assholes. In my book. Up to a point. Well... not necessarily.

So I'm here, sitting in Fresno. For the most part, settled in, though there are quite a few boxes piled up. As a famous procrastinator once said, "I'll take care of it later." The job is going so-so. Hey, it's a job... it's not supposed to be a damn party. A fact that I've forgotten in my two years away from the ranks of the zombies employed. Yes, I worked for my aunt, but it's not quite the same. That was a personal thing.

Packing up for this move, the best description is "clusterfuck." Seriously.

Long ago, I had to move an uncle. When we got to his apartment, we discovered that not a damn thing had been packed. Nothing. Dirty dishes still in the sink. Laundry clean but not put away. I vowed that I would never, EVER, put anyone through the same thing. While not nearly the same, it felt just as fucked up to me.

Thanks be to the gods that I had Jerry and Tammi, as well as my Ma and sis come out to help. Not to mention my bro hauling off my bike. You guys all rule. I don't really know what you rule, but you do, nonetheless.

The trip out here was relatively uneventful. As my aunt describes it, "sitting, eating, sitting, eating, sitting, eating, sleeping." There was some pretty awesome scenery, and I did take pics, but they are on my laptop, and will be uploaded at a later date. I tried to take some video while I was driving, but that came out about as well as... constipation.

Again, once we arrived, we headed for Yosemite. Got a few pics from there, as well, but they are also on the laptop. 'Twas the first time there for my aunt, and she almost sounded like she had a serious problem with all of the "Oh"s she kept yelling. I got a book of day hikes in Yosemite... now all I need is an annual pass, and a book for the Sequoias and Kings Canyon.

Anyway... just letting you folks know that I'm here and looking forward to getting back in touch with you all.

Peace out, peeps.

Now, don't be so hard on wasn't a COMPLETE clusterfuck. ;-)

And you're welcome. That's what friends are for....

Oh and, you could always just leave the boxes packed to make it easier to move back home......

;-) (couldn't resist - sorry)

Hey dude!
Sorry I haven't called you back lately, works had me busier than a one armed paper hanger. Everytime I *think* I have free time..I end up passing out.

Anyway glad to see your moved in, alive and kicking. Be ware strange camp counselors with long hair named Timothy offering you rock candy. Oh and stay away from the fish taco's. Ew.

Otherwise good luck to ya in Caly-Forn-Ee :)

All moves are a clusterfuck - that's just the nature of the game. I am so glad you are getting settled in your new digs!!

Oh! And watch out for hippies on those day hikes - I hear they like those kinds of things. Best to be armed with soap and logic - I understand that's the best way to keep hippies at bay...

Good to hear you are settling in. I've lived in my apt. for 3 years and still have boxes sitting around, just not enough space. Fixing to start boxing stuff up again to move to a new apt, same city, though.

Yay - internet! And as Richmond so rightly says... all moves are a clusterfuck. I still have nightmares from a couple of years ago... Heh.

I'm glad everything is going well for you so far.

BTW, you're still an arse. :)

DUDE! Welcome to California! Now get your ass out to Frisco so we can smack some Leftyloons around!

Give me a couple of weeks, Mark, and I'll head up that way!

Apparently you haven't ready my post on your mean....."exploring other opportunities"

Read it damnit, I worked hard on it...

Living where you can escape and see the Sequoias or visit Yosemite is a wonderful exercise to put things in perspective. This will help to not take things too seriously.

Enjoy the moments~

Glad to see that you're finally hooked up with regular net access, Moonbeam.

Glad I could help you out a bit.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

Or is it, a friend with weed is a friend indeed?

Have fun in CA!!
