Parting is NOT sweet sorrow

I finished tying up all my loose ends before I make the final move out of New York.  All that’s left to do is to put the stuff in the car and hit the road next week!

I tell ya, these last few weeks on Long Island have been pretty anti-climactic for me.  There were places and stores I’ve been going to that I realized would be the last time I’d ever go there, but the reality of it refused to sink in.  I’d just shrug my shoulders and move on.  No reminiscing of the past, no feeling of excitement or sorrow.  Just the overwhelming urge to get this over with and LEAVE.

I think part of why I’ve been feeling this way is that I’ve already mentally checked out of this place a long time ago.  My mind truly was no longer on Long Island anymore, so it was just a matter of the rest of my body catching up.  Long Island was no longer my home, and it had done its best to remind me of that fact every day.  But soon it will no longer have me to kick around anymore.

I’m so grateful that I was able to hit the “reset” button for my life and be granted by God the blessing of a fresh, new start.  I hope I’ll be able to find in Colorado what has eluded me for so long here: a sense of peace and respite, deep in the mountains that will soon become my new home.  The Promised Land.

I know it won’t be perfect; people being who they are will always disappoint.  But I know it will be BETTER, far better than the life I’ve had to live here.  The prison doors have been opened, and the chains that have held me in bondage have been cast off.  It’s time to be free, to live and love again.

Trying something new

WordPress (that awesome thingie that powers my blog) just updated with a few new features, so I’m trying something new here to see if I can post updates to Facebook (and Twitter) right from the WordPress dashboard.  Can y’all see me?  Yoooooohooooooooo… anyone here?  Bueller?  Bueller?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Anyone?

Hey Hollywood, get off my lawn

My parking space at work literally turned into a Hollywood set today.  I couldn’t see who they were doing filming for, but I know it’s one of the primetime TV shows.  Kinda weird to go into work and suddenly be surrounded by a buzz of crew workers setting up spotlights, cameras, et cetera, and shooting scenes.  The actors I expect were probably eating caviar in their trailers while everyone else were freezing their jimmy johns off getting the sets ready.  Then I suspect they come out for 5 minutes, do their lines, go back in their trailers and be none the wiser.  What a life.

As for why they’re filming here, I’m guessing they probably needed scenery that resembled a typical street in Detroit, only dirtier and uglier.  Tee hee.

Being adorkably positive

I’m going to engage in some positive thinking tonight and envision Zooey Deschanel resting her head on my muscular chest in a heavenly embrace.  Cuz Joel Osteen told me the power of positively thinking positive thoughts in a positive way is like, positively awesome and stuff.  I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow morning when I wake up next to the real deal, cuz I’m positively believing it will happen.

Ok, gonna go positiviting now….

Ready to throw my Keurig out the window

Remember when I said I finally joined the world of the hoity toity by getting a Keurig machine? Yeah, that might have been a bit premature. I’m already floundering here with the Keurig Vue V500 and wondering if these particular machines really are that sucky, or if I just need to find a different model. The tea was weak, the hot chocolate was AWFUL and a normal coffee brew was just, meh. I also can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that the water tank needs to stay half filled (!!!) for it to even work, meaning I get to pour liters of expensive and unused filtered water into the drain.

Am I missing something here? It seems like this particular model suffers from several design flaws that wasn’t an issue with the previous generation of K-Cup machines, so maybe I need to give those a try instead?
