A Quote from an Email

This rather sums up my grumpiness today: "if I wanted to go to board meetings in my spare bloody time, I'd be on the board for some-bloody-thing."  Life is insanely busy.  Birthday was very good.  Grumpiness is mild and temporary.

Frog did a lovely question meme and asked me a few in return.

1. What's your favorite part about living where you do?

I walk home from work. I walk to work when my sweetie can't drop me off, but mostly I walk home. This may become interesting when we hit our first Minnesota winter in the new place, but for now it's fantastic.

2. If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

Boringly, I'd live right where I am... only I'd have a mortgage instead of a landlord. Think she'll sell? I really like the new place, and I've actually come to realize that, while being back up the north shore might be a nice fantasy, the Twin Cities actually provide a better Turtle habitat.

3. What's your one must-have attribute in a partner?

A sense of adventure. Because if I decide to do something crazy, I want company.

Still no Internets

Well, we have internets but the wireless isn't up, so my computer is a fancy picture-looking, music-listening machine. As a result, I've gotten a bunch of knitting and spinning done. Granted, the knitting and spinning keep distracting from the unpacking and the cleaning, but I have quite the stash and am willing to see progress in its diminishing, no matter the damage to my housekeeping skill. (Ha! I just referred to my housekeeping skill as if I HAD some!)

Living in sin continues to be quite cozy, though I've taken to beating the man up in my sleep. The first time, I know I was dreaming that there was a spider on me. The most recent, I was mostly asleep and twice as clumsy as usual. No clue what happened in between, as I was out cold. Oh, well, we'll survive. Or at least, I will.
