  •  Hi (3+ / 0-)

    I am glad to see you again!  I have missed you.  I have At Days Close right here by the computer and have read up to page 42.  It is interesting!

    Living in the country helps me know about where food comes from.  :)  

    I am glad you are settled in and know where your bookstore is, already.

    •  There's too many of them, actually! :) (5+ / 0-)

      And they're dangerous!

      I swear I hear like 50 books calling my name when I walk into any of the bookstores around here...Powell's is only the beginning, there's a small independent bookstore on almost every block out here in Portland!


      I start a new job tomorrow - the hours suck, I'm back to waking up at 4:45 AM every morning...


      But!  If I look at it as if I was still on East Coast time, I'm technically waking up at 7:45!  But......I'm really, pfffftttt!!!!!


      But this new job won't make me want to strangle myself nearly as much as my old one did, so that's good!

        I don't do well in the morning...I hope you do get used to it.  That means you should have some time before dark in the afternoons, I hope, to visit the ocean or other neat places.

        Best wishes!!

          Yeah, I woke up for work at about 4:40 AM or so for 9 years before I moved out here, so I'll get used to it again rather quickly....the coffee is much better out here, too - so that'll help!

          The problem with the other job was that it was nowhere near mass transit (I don't have a car), so the walk from my home to the train station, the wait for the train, the bus ride, and then the walk to the warehouse itself; combined with the OT, had me 'working' like 65 hours a week on average back then - it was pretty exhausting...heh...

          This new job doesn't quite pay as well, but I'll have much more time to myself from now on....and this place is right on a busline, in one of the most mass-transit friendly cities in the world...

          I can't wait to visit the Pacific!  I've never seen it, but I definitely will sometime early next Spring.  Besides, this city has hundreds of cool places that I haven't even visited yet, so I'll definitely do that soon!


          Thanks again!
