bondmates, sigil

high on life

Are you there, Universe? It's me, Joanie.

I know that sometimes we have our disagreements about things, and sometimes I know we don't get along as we should, especially when I'm pitching a fit about the curveballs you've thrown in my direction most recently.

But you know what? Even when life gets chaotic and my brain starts to go numb, I thrive on the variety and the action. I like having things in my life stirred-up enough so that the interesting things come out. I could do without the emotional stress sometimes, and I know that I never like it when my friends are in distress of any sort, but ...

... a pyromaniac can either be a firestarter or a firefighter. A drama addict can either be a sorry sonofabitch who stirs up trouble on purpose, or a person who does their best to heal hurt where they find it. It's not black and white, because it never is, but someone's essential nature will always point them towards one end of the spectrum or another. All my bondmates are healers of one type or another. That's why I love them so much. They could use their talents for ill. They don't.

At any rate, holy crap what a few weeks this has been. I've gone from utterly blindsided to confused to homicidal to suicidal to felicidal all within the space of not particularly very long at all. The universe spins me, and I spin with it, and even though I get dizzy, I don't want the dance to stop.

This is it. I'm moving tomorrow through Sunday. After Sunday, I shan't have connectivity of any sort at my place, not unless I can sweet-talk one of the local wireless g33kz0rs to let me share a connection pretty-please, not until Thursday or Friday. I waited too long to call the phone people to swap things over, see. The power's going to be not much of a problem -- on in the new place Friday, off in the old place Monday, so the three moving days will overlap.

I was very tempted to get a cellphone for the sheer "Hmm, human contact" thing of it, but I resisted. Not with the budget of the moment. And it turns out that with the new phone package, I've got $5 less on it than the old one, and it gives me a $5 discount on the DSL, and that's better than most of the other offers I've seen out there for new stuff that needs new equipment and getting used to, sooooo... no changes.

Phone number's still the same for the nonce, though after things get settled in more, I may well change it. I resist change mightily.

I may be helping trystan_laryssa and dustraven move after I get myself moved, so I may wind up borrowing their 'net connection for a while, or I may take advantage of the time off and the access to the car and wind up at the Willow House more. Speaking of the Willow House, what's the scoop on the roof situation?

I'm still far too hyper for my own good.
