It's kinda weird and I feel kinda bad no matter how many people tell me not to.

So here I am after three months of imposed time-off with a whole new job in a whole new department and Five days into the thing I'm off to Italy for a two week vacation.
Rome, Florence, Venice, Pisa and Bologna , then a week on the Amalfi coast where we hope to take in Capri as well as Pompei and maybe Herculaneum.

I keep checking my nether parts for a horse shoe.

It's been an insanely atypical year. Mucho fuckedupedness.

Anyway... today was fun. We got the new crew together and got the office pretty much all set up. I get a cute little office that, happily, will be hella easier to heat in the wintertime than my ex-office was. Happy bones!

If I look up from my work and peer though the window I can look directly into said ex-office. It's a bit surreal, but not quite as much as the ride in on the metro where I sat next to an older lady all decked out and in fine perfume - studiously going over her pocket copy of the Kamasutra. It kinda makes you wonder what kind of humpday she's going to be having...

I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

Sounds like things are off to a good start. :)

I can understand the 'feel bad' about the jaunt to Italy, but I'm thinking you'll get over it!

Yeah, you're right. I'll probably get over it.
It's just a matter of weirdo timing; the trip was booked before the whole layoff thing happened.

Postcard??

Oooh, yes please! (LJ has just released all my comment emails it was holding hostage - I'm getting caught up.)

Do you have my new address in Springfield?

Nope, I don't have that new address. You can email it to me at paperpath at gmail if you'd like.

Insanely atypical years are good for you! Like spinach and cauliflower and broccoli. Now off to Italy with you, and don't you come back until you've thought about what you've done!

Enjoy beautiful Italia. I like that we're on the same continent for a couple of weeks. :)
