Sunday, September 10
So it's been a month.
Over that span not much of anything has happened, hence the no-posting. I never heard again about the job. Velveteen did come to visit, which was very nice.
Word on the street is that I might have a girlfriend now. That is very close to true, it's far from official but I am definitely dating a nice girl - who happens to live 50 miles south of Atlanta. Yes, there are well over 2 million women in the greater Atlanta metro area and, no I am not dating any of them. It's kind of like living in Milwaukee and dating someone who lives in Beloit. Actually, to be more situational, it's like living in West Bend (more comparable to Decatur) and dating someone who lives in Beloit (small racially-divided city with a nice college and fleeing industry).
When I put it this way, it sounds dumber than I think of it otherwise.
OK, so answers to some simple questions: Her name is Farish (her grandmother's maiden name), she's 33, very cute - short and thin with dark hair and blue eyes. She graduated from the tiny liberal arts college in her town. She's a social worker (right now she's a case manager for Big Brothers), her father's a college art professor, she can't cook to save her life, she has two dogs and two cats and last night when I was on my way out last night she got started about how awful our president is and I ended up staying another half hour. She likes French movies and reads a lot of books about religion while being a very skeptical agnostic. I think you can guess why I like her. She does have an accent so thick you can cut it with a knife, which made it tough at first, and I'm fairly certain she stays in her little city because she takes care of her parents and she seems to hate the Atlanta traffic - both of which are pretty good reasons to stay out.
Other big news:
I will next be visiting Oshkoshistan at the end of October for Abraxis' wedding.
I should be traveling to Asia for work in early November.
