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 Château 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.
