i am sending this message out from the void. no internet at home and no time at new job! still vaguely intimidated by uberboss français. moved into house. still a number of things at old apartment. sigh... i wish i had boughta truck, kind of. cat settling in but possibly lonely all day without other cats around. several invaluable folks helped us over the course of the past week including omphaloskepsis, tzel, ohighfiveo, necrocannibal and msteleute. without the plastic silverware delivery we may not have eaten!

our queen box spring wouldn't fit upstairs. we're thinking of just doing without. not sure what to do with just a box spring though...

spent most of the workdays wrangling numbers in excel files. getting up to speed is extremely intimidating. flexing math muscles i have not used in... well a long time. i am walking distance to annapolis mall but have only purchased some $8 headphones since mine broke. v. proud of restraint.

miss lj lots. :( i'm already 440 posts behind. no internet at home 'til friday? who knows it might work its way up to 1000. i feel weirdly disconnected and not in a liberated way. i spend alot of time wishing i could spend face time with my lj friends, and now i can't even spend lj time.

lots to be said about the employment culture shock. anyone out there into herbal/vitamin stuff have recommendations for brain drugs - things to help with alertness, memory, stuff like that. I think I need more iron...

hope to hear from anyone via comments or email or anything. :)

If you figure out what to do with your queen boxspring, let me know. I've got one of my own, sitting uselessly in a closet. Sometimes I fear that it may feel neglected.

Good luck with the internet withdrawal! At least it'll be over soon.

I think the answer may be to find a friend with a truck and get them to haul it to the goodwill.

Hey--I was just wondering yesterday when you'd be back! I miss yoooooooooou! *sniff*

Your bed wouldn't fit upstairs? Yikes! Hopefully that was the only major glitch you guys encountered! Here's to your new place, and the new job too. Adjusting to a new workplace is hard, but with any luck at all you'll start feeling more comfortable soon. :)
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:08 pm (UTC)
thank you for saying hi!!!!! i miss you too.
Sep. 21st, 2004 09:37 pm (UTC)
AWW you put the little cedille in french!
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:09 pm (UTC)
if only i could have done the code from memory - i had to look it up. do people who write in french have to write in the code every single damn time? argh.

You can buy a split box spring, in two pieces - that's what I had to do when I lived in the city, with all the narrow stairwells. But it's a couple hundred, which sucked.

Walking distance to Annapolis Mall is a pretty nice area! Congratulations!

ouch. we may have to do that, unless we can stand sleeping on just the mattress. i'm not sure how good that is for one's back but we could do worse.

thanks :D

Hello! Oh man. When YOU leave livejournal, it's like...it's like...
I dunno exactly what it's like. Like when the leader of a country goes abroad?
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:11 pm (UTC)
probably most people are rejoicing :)
Sep. 21st, 2004 10:03 pm (UTC)
I am so close, let me know if you need anything!
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:12 pm (UTC)
last i heard you were not feeling so hot so i didn't want to intrude. you know what you could do though, you could go see first daughter with me, since you are the only person i can think of that might consider it. :)

come back soon!

also... ginkgo, bee pollen, yes iron (or just a good multivitamin), ginseng, eat lots of fruit, green or white tea at teatime (late afternoon), decaffeinate yourself, drink enough (loads of) water, spend at least 5 minutes not at your computer every hour. that's in no specific order, in response to your last point.
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:15 pm (UTC)
thank you for the recommendations. i will endeavor to follow them. decaffeinating will have to be step one - free tasty coffee has me stuck in a rut.

The Annapolis Mall is seven minutes from my house!

Re: random comment
oh that is really cool. perhaps someday we'll meet. :D

LJ'ing from work will prove problematic as it seems our friendly sys admin is choking down on access to it. At least, that's all Smorgan and I can figure out. It's brutally slow and has been for over a week. :(
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:19 pm (UTC)
yeah. maybe i caused it. i have barely looked at it but it's slow as heck and i can't load my friends list at all. really, i think that's kind of mistrustful and obnoxious. what if on my lunch hour i wanted to browse while i ate? the message is: we do not trust our employees to manage their time. grr.

Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:19 pm (UTC)
good idea. thank you!!

I find that hot cocoa helps with my math ability, but that may just be me. :)
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:20 pm (UTC)
mmm. i think it would make me sleepy unless infused with espresso...

eh, don't worry about being 440 posts behind. Here is a brief updte on what you have missed:***

- some of your friends aren't feeling very well.
- the weather was very nice the other day and some people enjoyed it and it made them feel happy.
- a lot of people have very boring lives and their routine of work/home/work/home has not changed.
- one of your friends had a very enlightening commentary about the current political situation
- another one of your friends made bad jokes about it
- cheetahmaster posted news links
- a few people had their email accounts die and are using their backup gmail accounts
- these same people have spare gmail invites if anyone wants one
- a few of your friends went clubbing and a good time was had by all

*** this isn't true, but seems a good summary of my friends list :)

Hallo Stranger!

For Monday bookclub, I can pack up another boxful of stuff for you and bring it over if you'd like. It would save you a trip!

I don't know about herbal supplements and the like, but try hitting Curves on the way home and going to bed at the same time every night? Being back on my routine is, like, bliss. I know I was only off it for like two weeks but it really threw me, and you've been through lots more chaos than I have!
Sep. 22nd, 2004 05:24 pm (UTC)
going to bed - check.
curves - heh. yeah i should re-start. dunno when that's going to happen though. i had literally forgot it existed. :o

for monday bookclub you can bring stuff, that would ROCK. and then we will load you down with boxes which you can take home. :)
