All the news that’s fit to the squint

Well, good news and bad news. Bad news first, I have bronchitis. Felt kind of off yesterday, been coughing more than usual. So I decided last night that unless I felt loads better today, I'd go to the doctor. So I went to the doctor. Long visit, Saturdays are crazy, and the plague is in town. Came out with a load of 'scripts, and a referral to a cardiologist because when they did the chest x-ray to make sure I didn't have pneumonia, the radiologist didn't like the size of my heart. Guess I need to be more grinchy this holiday season. So hopefully I can shrug this off quickly.

So that's the bad news out of the way, so here's the good news. I found a new place. I've been looking for a couple of weeks, and I found a near perfect place. I'll move out of Ch√Ęteau Innsmouth by Feb 1st, and into "Nickname to be determined later". Actually I take possession of the new place on Jan 15, so I'll probably take some PTO to move during the week, and get organized, and use the weekends to draft my local friends into helping me build bookcases. *grin*

Details, it's up by the new Carcosa Corp offices. It's a two bedroom, one bath 1st floor apartment, 900 square feet. The living area is one big room, so no one will be surprised when I line it with my bookcases (and new taller ones). The smaller bedroom will be a bedroom, the bigger one will be my study. Art, stuff on shelves, the computer horde, A cross between the Matrix and an Edwardian Occultist's lair. Nothing amazing with internet access, but it's the same company as I'm currently with, so it's the evil I know. Kitchen is big, but I'm not much of a cook so it will probably be mostly a place to store food and microwave it. Bathroom is also pretty basic, but that's ok. It will be really good to get out my current location, and build out a new lair according to a plan, vs the organic disorganization I currently live in.

So that's the big news for right now. Going to call it a post. Wish me luck getting healthy.
