bleh bleh bleh. Somebody take me home, I am FED UP with all the sunshine and blue skies and palm trees. I am going stir crazy, inertia is addling my brains, I am longing for foggy days and misty nights... 5 days more.
On the happy side, my Lo-Tech is totally finished! I put in the zipper today (my first), and it is pretty damn fine, if I don't say so myself. It's a big comfy binky, and I am wearing it all day today, even if it gets to be 80 degrees. Rachael has pics, so yell at her to get to the developer. But then pity her for having to work midnights again.
We just hired a new girl for the office. For the past 15 years she worked midnights for an airline, and I noticed again the strange, ethereal quality that graveyard folks have. They always look like they are dreaming a little bit. Rachael has managed to cover up this dreaminess a bit with the sweet attentiveness she has perfected, but it's still there.
I am still excited about heading south; there's so many strange sights to see! My railing against this damn place and the damn weather here is just the frustrated cage rattling of a zoo monkey (be glad I'm not flinging shit). Just like that monkey, as soon as I gain my freedom I am going to linger around the cage, enjoying the new perspective of the other side of the bars. I don't think escaped elephants long for the known safety of their cages; they just want to snitch some free peanuts to enjoy as only free elephants can.
Back to reveling in my bleh. Bleh, bleh, bleh. Bleh X 5 days.
