I am alive! I closed on my house about a week and a half ago, spent one weekend yanking out icky green carpet, and a long week of shifting possessions out of my apartment and into the new place. I never knew there could be a home-related task more urgent than the establishment of internet services, but apparently there are lots and lots of them so it will probably be awhile before I am online regularly again. Which does not mean I do not miss you all and do not feel a bit lonely without you. BRB in a week, maybe?
