Congrats on your new digs! Hope everything is delivered in tact, and that you feel comfortable and "at home" as soon as possible
Yep, it's very pretty...I live near cows! I didn't see them before, but today, they were out just before the turn for my new place (I did stop by tonight and check my mailbox and double check that all the directions I gave the driver were correct, even though I didn't move in yet). A few more weeks and the leaves will start turning color on the trees...I can't wait! Plus, I'm no longer responsible for raking the leaves! So, I can really sit back and just look and enjoy. Skeeters I'm used to, and used to run into some snakes in MI too (never encountered anything more than a garter snake in NJ...well, once there was some sort of nasty, venomous beastie in our backyard, but my dad spotted it first and just made us all stay away from it until it left).hypatia said:I envy your chance at outdoor work, thats a really beautiful state. Just be aware of "skeeters and snakes and such*" And might I add the moonshiners.
Thanks. I wonder how long it will take to get my DSL once my phone is connected? I can't wait! That'll be the big celebration, when I have high speed access from home.TheStatutoryApe said:YAY!! Happy almost House Warming Moonie!
It's where the job is silly. :rofl: Actually, it's where the person works who has been paying half my salary for the past few years already (off his grants), so he was the most obvious person to contact when I found out the person I worked with in Cincinnati was picking up and leaving the country. I actually like it here. When I really have time to do stuff, there are cities like D.C. and Pittsburgh within a reasonable driving distance for weekend trips, and when I don't have time to do stuff, it's a pretty, quiet place to just relax and be at home. It's actually the kind of place I always pictured myself living, where I'm out in the country to have the clean, fresh air and open spaces, but still close enough to cities to get to them when I want something more to do.yomamma said:I'm curious, why west virginia?
the big celebration will be when you realise that Windows XP is better than any mac. Then in june, you'll be sad again because everyone else upgraged to VISTAMoonbear said:Thanks.

They still don't pay me enough to spend New Years in NYC!!! :surprised Last year I was there for a few days between Christmas and New Years, and that was bad enough. But, I also think Zz has a prior date with me at Disney. He'd be very disappointed if I headed north instead of south.cronxeh said:I say.. Moonbearr you should come up to NYC this New Years - I'll be 21 by then and we'll grab an apple tini
:surprised :rofl: *note to self: don't visit clinic for bladder infections.* Um, yeah, I think things have changed a bit since you were here. That's totally opposite from the student clinic when I was in college...we used to joke that they prescribed condoms for everything. Go in with a sore throat and walk out with a fist full of condoms, go in with the flu and leave with a package of condoms, go in with a sprained ankle and you're handed a bag of condoms. They seemed to have this unlimited supply of them that they just kept handing out everytime anyone visited the clinic. On the positive side, students rarely needed to actually buy condoms, and there was always a ready supply.Math Is Hard said:Woohoo! Hillbilly neurosurgeons!! You sure got a purty medulla oblangata on ya, missy! :rofl:
ok, I am really hesitant to tell you (but I just gotta 'cause you'll laugh) my experience with the WVU clinic for students when I was there years ago. I went there for a bladder infection once and the doctor actually told me it was God's way of punishing me for premarital sex! :surprised I'm sure things are different now!
