The sky as my compass

First day of school today! OK, first day of the new job, but still. Wore my lucky outfit and had a fantastic day. Not much to tell yet, but I’m sure that will change soon enough. Am just very happy to have made the leap to live and work at the beach.

And it sounds like I abandoned the ‘Ranch in the nick of fucking time. But that’s a story for another day.

Have been out exploring my ‘hood thanks to various computer issues that have sent me all over hell’s half-acre, looking for cables and wires and adapters and a gun to put to my head. So yeah, I’ve learned the new area quite well. It’s actually easy to maneuver once you figure out that it’s set up like a grid (a la D.C.) but not all streets connect to each other.

And all roads really do lead to the beach, so you can pretty much look at the sky and see how the cloud patterns look. You can ALWAYS tell where the water is. It’s just something you pick up on your first day, and the sky is your compass.

In other news, I finally figured out how to get rid of the Extended Houseguest …. a restraining order! Now all I have to do is get her to slug me (and for me to actually feel it). Shit, I should just beat myself up and go get the PFA. And don’t think I’m above doing it … I’ll do ANYTHING to get my apartment all to myself!
