cluttering the net since 2001

nothing much...

Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2005
Not much to write about. I’ve been tired, cold and achy…. I usually end up sick for the Holiday’s and I’m still holding out hope that this year I will get lucky and not feel sick. The weather here has been sucking lately. When I walk out my front door there’s nothing worse than walking into a cold freeze. Yah I realize that most of the US is covered in snow and I should be grateful…but living here makes you whimpy…or at least it makes you crave the sunshine when it goes away for so long.

I’m off of school for a week for Christmas…and I was off 2 weeks prior to last week so I feel out of touch with school and that never makes for a happy camper. I switched my name with the bank and social security department and DMV on Tuesday morning. Today despite their promises that they wouldn’t do it….my bankcard was turned off. I hate banks….even more so I hate banking employees…they’re full of excuses for their incompetence.

Work has been hectic with lots of procedural changes lately….but I’m ok with it too. I haven’t heard anything about the job I interviewed for but with the holiday’s every things a little off kilter lately. I got a phone call from Tonymac today. He’s happily living life in San Antonio, TX working for the company. So far about half a dozen Tampa employees have moved to San Antonio following a departed supervisor in another department. (not the one I work for…) It’s odd. It’s like Team Tampa is now Team San Antonio in a flash. But it hasn’t had any effect on me because like I said…different department. He’s called me a few times and everytime he does someone else I know from Team Tampa will chime in saying hello to me. It’s an odd sensation when you know a person but they’re really no longer a part of your realm of day to day activities. Tonymac’s psuedo gf followed him from Indianapolis to Tampa and is now making her transition to San Antonio to again be near him. I can’t imagine following someone around the country without any sign of commitments. But alas I think they might just be FB’s only. Who knows….who cares…just strikes me as unusual. But either way Tonymac sounded much happier with life, love and work and that’s great to me…in the end that’s all you can ever hope for for your friends. I have missed him at work…and its nice that he calls to check up on me and that we can still be friends. :-)

I’m still reading East of Eden and I’m enjoying it far more than I ever thought that I would at this point. I’m on page 176 or something close to that and I’m actually really liking this novel in ways I never thought I would initially. I’m enjoying the book club interactions as well even if the club only has myself and two other’s at this point. I am actually looking forward to putting Christmas to rest…something I ordered for the kid will arrive at work on Friday….when no one is there. *sigh* That sums up this Christmas season for me…..so far.

Now I become myself. It's taken time, many years and places; I have been dissolved and shaken, worn other people's faces....
