And Away We Go

I’ve been away for a while. I took a week off of work and nobody noticed.

I often compare my current job to the duty performed by Milton Waddams in Office Space- no one knows why I’m there and I don’t do anything once I arrive. While I’m writing this, I’m watching Gunfight at the OK Corral with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas. Cheezy flick but it keeps me awake.

I finally made it to my new home.

I spent 20 hours in a moving van on a 10 hour trip that started with the cops knocking on my door in Gilroy, moved on to a run in with hooker in Needles, a strip joint in Kingman, being woke up by a tow truck driver in Seligman, and finally, arriving to home sweet home in Paulden, AZ, population now 3,422 (3,426 if you count Chuck, Maggie the smack addict dog and a cat and a bird).

The trip will be dealt with in a later blog- when I regain my strength- but for now, I have 2 more weeks of watching TV and looking for my stapler in Campbell, CA then I’m off, for good to the Grand Canyon state..

Is it odd to buy a house site unseen in a town I’ve never been to, where I know no one, and have no job?

Here’s to new places and new adventures.

Yippee Kye Yay,
or something like that.
