holy crap

I'm blogging, bitches. It's for good reason. Things are about to change drastically. For those of you in the midwest...sorry, but you are about to be invaded, because after waiting and waiting and waiting and more waiting, we (I) have decided that since the move down south isn't going to be possible any time soon (thanks, shitty economy and lack of job transfer possibilities!), it's time to bite the bullet. So, later this month I will be moving out there. There. I wrote it. It's totally real now.

After the saddest MYTGOD post ever, I'm sure there were those of you who were all "ugh, what a heartless bitch." The fact is that deciding NOT to go then and there was very difficult. However, it would have been the result of a hot-headed and rash decision and likely would have resulted in the loss of one of my best friends. So, I got some stuff cleared up and feel a lot better about making the move in a few weeks. Not that I'm happy about moving there. It's cold...colder than it is here, and I realize that people who live in that general vicinity will claim that this is just snobbery, but the fact is that culture, cuisine and general life pace is just vastly different. When the closest large city requires a Kevlar® vest, people just tend to chill out in their subdivisions 40 minutes away from everything else. It's just foreign to me. So fine, I suck, but deal with it.

There is plenty I have to be happy about there. Most importantly is my man, who was audibly thrilled when I told him about my decision to move yesterday. He has already started laying the groundwork for finding us a sweet pad in a place that I will hate the least amount possible. That should be a fun project! It's possible he'll be regretting his insistence that I move there once he tries to find said pad. Now he's stuck with me.

    And just like that, another MAN CAVE is born.

    Congrats and the interwebs look forward to all sorts of wonderful stories of moldly pizza, piles of beer cans and urine splattered toilet seats!!

    YAY us!!!

    I'm taking at least partial credit. When we all gathered in South Cackalaky this weekend, we hoisted a glass in the general direction of the Bracelet. And now this.

    Don't bother to thank us. It's how we roll.

    This is great news for a variety of reasons. You are to be congratulated on your willingness to leave your comfort zone and endure the (in many respects) unpleasant nature of the new location in pursuit of something truly worthwhile.

    Souls are tempered and made stronger on the anvil of the Midwest. Sounds melodramatic, but is quite true--it will stretch you as a person on many levels (especially the fucking weather).

    Again, many congratulations to you on your choice to journey into the unknown/unfamiliar.

    Holy crap, indeed!

    I've already switched from bottles of beer to cans because we all know they make better pyramids.

    Kevlar vest? Are you planning on visiting the city only on sunny summer days?

    Full body armor should be part of the relocation agreement.

    This is excellent news. Smiles all over the place.

    Ahhh...Springtime in The D. The cherry blossoms, the smell of burning tires and Early Bird Specials at Applebys.

    My tips for successful cohabitation:

    1. Two bathrooms.

    That is all.
