Whew. In seven days, i will be on the road somewhere in east Tennessee, working my way towards DC. All sorts of stuff is piled up creatively around my house; my mother appears to be nearing a nervous breakdown every time she looks at the mounds for more than ten seconds. But it'll be over soon, right? Right?
i have little new to report, other than the resolution of a few dates. 24 September is when all of my possessions will be packed up and shipped out, and 2 November i will find out when and where i am going.
On the suggestion of one friend, i think i will institute a weekly feature or two. Every Wednesday evening (chosen because it will coincide with the end of her worst class each week, when she'll need a laugh), i will try to post some amusing anecdote about either the morass of bureaucracy i encounter or entertaining cross-cultural misunderstandings. i could easily be convinced to add another weekly feature, if suggestions for theme are good enough.
By this point, i think i have my readership list fairly well set. Everyone, shake hands with the reader sitting next to you. Play nice in the comment sections, don't run with scissors, and enjoy the ride! i think i will - once i'm in DC, not now!
