So I’m not even close to being moved yet, but we’re in the process of trying to get everything from the lake house to the new house in once piece. I thought I’d give you a couple of pics to chomp on!

Just a flyby to let you know I’m not dead! My extended hiatus from Shibuya 109 is almost over I hope, and once this move is complete I may get to post daily again which would be great considering I’ve been away from this blog for far too long.

Promise photos of the new house in the future!

You know, I never thought I’d be looking at apartments in Austin Texas, or anywhere in Texas, for that matter. In fact, I believe at some point I swore Texas off as a possible place to move to once I get out of Stabsourri, but I’m looking at some of these places on SimpleSearchApartments.com and they actually don’t look half bad, a bit on the pricey side but not too bad. The search engine thingie is awesome, like Rent.com without all the annoying ads and pop-ups, and you get more advanced choices for search criteria, like searching by amenities or school district, or even by pets – very nifty site.

So, I found something fun out today. The place we’re moving to, while having a transit system and cabs, also has quite the Christian population.

Don’t read me wrong, I can live around them, but I have the feeling I’m going to be some Born Again’s pet project, which is a thought that sickens me. I don’t want to be someone’s make over game, I don’t want to hear about Jesus, I don’t want that book read in my presence. I don’t want to have to repeatedly tell someone I’m not interested, only to have them show up every Sunday in their church clothes, giving me the condescending, ‘Are you ready to accept Jesus now?’ look.

I’m hoping that, if I keep my head down, and refuse to meet new people, I’ll slid under the radar and won’t have to be ‘Saved’, lol.

So, it turns out we’ve got to move a lot faster than we’d planned thanks to a person who won’t be named who blows, so we can’t make it across the country just yet. But we’re planning to move about 2 hours away, which I know doesn’t sound like much but it’s an entirely different world.

It’s a small metropolis named St. Joseph, which sports almost 75000 people verses our 1800, plus a highway, and businesses, and some low rent housing to boot. I’m hoping to get a telemarketing job, but at this point I’ll take anything, lol.

At any rate, I’m trying to raise the money to move so I’ll be absent from the net off and on for awhile,

Okay, I’m moving. I think we’ve established this. And, due to the fact that I can’t just run out to Cali and rent an apartment right away because, you know, poor, I’ve thought of staying a few days in a hotel or, better yet, some cheap Motels, maybe even the Y to give me some time to find a job ( I am not above minimum wage, thankyousoverymuch ). Well, I checked out HotelReservations.com to see what kind of rates they offer and I was amazed by how much cheaper Best Western Pavillion is there than it is on BestWestern.com.

I’ve also noticed that Quality Inn’s cheaper, too. Still psychotically far out of my range ( so far that it is, in fact, in space ), but if these two are so dirt cheap, the even smaller hotels should be a real steal. I’m really sincerely hoping that, if I do end up using the service at Hotel Reservations, I’ll be able to actually afford a few days comfortably while I look for a job, since I already know where I’m going to rent from ( I’ve got 4 apartments all in the same 5 mile square around South Harbor Blvd. that are cheap and comfortable looking ), and with both Laota and I working full time, we can afford any of the places we’ve looked at, even at minimum wage. Neat for me, lol.

( P.S., If anyone knows of any decent telemarketing jobs I can mess around with from home or anything at all from home that actually works, please, pretty please, let me know! The faster I get a third job, the faster I get the fudge out of here, lol. )

I don’t know that I’d ever use Hotel Reservations service for any sort of international or world travel, but they’ve got an insane amount of neat destinations. I wonder if services like that actually work for a anyone? Has anyone tried HotelReservations.com?

Well, I’m gonna be concentrating entirely on getting the hell out of here. I’ve done my time helping my mom with my stepdad, her business, taking care of her friends and their problems, and now she’s renting a room out to an elderly woman who’ll need help and looked after and at this point I think I speak for Laota when I say, “Nuh uh.”

So, being broke, I had to make a tough decision. Do I want to go into debt to get the hell out of here? The answer is, no, of course. Am I willing to? Yes. YES. No more of this, I want to go HOME. Back to California, out of the frigging midwest, I wanna live somewhere where I can walk to the grocery store instead of having to hitch a ride from a passing pick up.

I’ll try to keep up with my blog, and I’ll be moving all my sites to a paid-for-the-year hosting space even though I can’t really afford it at this point, but I figure if I do it this way I won’t have to worry much about them while we move and get settled. And the move probably won’t be for a few months, but early warning is better than none, right? lol.

Anyway, anyone who lives around L.A. or Anaheim ( preferred the latter ), please if you know of any job openings or any shitty places to rent, let me know! I’ll love you forever and give you my foot, or at least A foot.

So, in the immortal words of Brier Rabbit, “I’m movin’ on, say goodbye to me!”
