moving along

Ok weekend, got some stuff done. I'm making headway on my campaign to convince Brian that selling the house here is a better idea than not selling. The argument that I find most compelling is not one that would impress him, so I have to come up with other reasons. Fortunately, there are plenty of them.

Lots and lots and lots of rain. We went to see An Inconvenient Truth last night. It started raining again as we walked to the theater and then it was coming down in buckets when we got out. We waited at the theater entrance for the rain to let up, since it rarely rains that hard for long. After waiting for at least half an hour, we said screw it and ran through the rain. Around 2:30 this morning I was going to bed and the downpour had not let up. Good thing we decided to bolt when we did.

xAnn is working half-days this week even though she's off for the summer (we are very short-staffed at the moment). I told her about what I saw on my way to campus this morning, since she grew up in the neighborhood right next to the park that was flooded. I said, "You know that Lake Manor park to the right of University Blvd headed east?" She said, "Lane Manor." I said, "Nooooo..." I walked to the College Park North PO to check out the storm damage along the way. There was a fish on the bike trail, about three inches long. Just after I finished at the PO the skies opened again and even though I had an umbrella, I got soaked. I have been working soggy all afternoon. But I am nice and toasty because our AC went out in this wing of the building back on Saturday. We informed the maintenance people, but they haven't got it working yet. My servers are somewhat unhappy about the situation.

I cancelled my ABE account today. I think getting all the books out of the house will help sway the house thing in my favor, although I feel pretty glum about it. They're just stuff. I keep saying this, hoping to convince myself.

I really really hate the thought of you going. I feel like I've only just been getting to know you. This makes me sad.

Aw, don't think of it as losing a pal. Think of it as knowing someone in Ohio. I am excited about it, although almost everyone I tell gives me a blank look and repeats my destination with a dubious look. As if this area were some sort of cultural zenith I'd be crazy to abandon? I'll tell you the scariest thing I've heard so far: one of my coworkers went to OSU and was delighted when I mentioned Columbus. "It's a GREAT sports town!" Oh. I tried to look happy, since he obviously thought that was a positive attribute. I still think it will be a good move.
