well, the good new is...I'm packed.

the bad new is...now I don't want to leave

don't take me wrong...I have no problem leaving home. golfbisquit and redthought have been gone for a while, kiltmir isn't hanging about.

But I'm lying in bed with the cat purring while draped across my ankles...and I want to cry. I'm not even sure why. It's not as though I'm taking everything I own, nor am I completely financially independent (though to be fair, a BA in Archaeology makes one qualified to work in...oh...nothing...). I just feel like I'm without a center of focus right now. Everything is whirling past my head so quickly...I don't even know what some of the decisions are, much less how to make them.

And I guess the worst part is, I really don't care about leaving home...I just don't want to leave this gray-furred bundle of cat that has tried to pack himself in each and everyone of my boxes.

I've got so much to do once I get to Chicago.

I'll be posting my new phone number as soon as I get a chance to visit the cellular store.

Poll #180996 Phone Numbers

Any number(s) you wanna give me for the new phone?

Your Secret admirer!!!

I have just been lurking about, trying to find Chicago peeps interested in Poetry or Writing and I found you...so I added you. I hope this is cool...

That's my Merlin. :-)
I'm close to Roscoe Village - north side Chicago.

ah...haven't made it up past the Loop yet. Mostly working on getting to know the area around the Univ...quite a place, Hyde Park.

I have a friend starting school at U of C this semester - she's an English and Art History major, Italian minor (I think that's right). That is where you go, right...in Hyde Park, at U of C?

You'll venture out eventually, though. When you do, you should join us for a poetry circle (shameless plug: every final Sunday of the month).
And if you need suggestions on anywhere else to go, lemme know. :-)

thanks...I appreciate it. I did a poetry slam in Chattanooga, TN once and loved it...hope to do more with that kind of thing (slam or otherwise)

That's great. I'm from the south, too...NC.

hmmm...that's where I moved from. I was in Asheville up until about a week and a half ago.

Really? My brother lives in Asheville! ;-D

so interconnected this country is...

I wanted to come Sunday (tomorrow) but I have too much Hebrew to review.

I hope to be there next time.

Aw, that's completely understandable, hon. I know the feeling. School work is forever getting in the way of my play and the work that I'd rather be doing, instead.

Maybe next month?
