Dear Charlie:

Well, things are slowly getting back to an even keel around here. Oh, not the mess -- that'll show signs for years to come. They're getting a handle on the rubble, yes, and there are lots of bare foundations just waiting for new houses, but there's still a mess we won't soon forget.

It's stuff you don't think about if you're not in it, ya know? Like a friend of mine had to tell her kids not to run around the yard barefoot, even though they'd cleaned up the visible mess. Why? Broken glass. It's EVERYWHERE. And roofing nails. And little twists of metal and shards of broken wood. Oh, and the gazillion shiny pieces of broken mirror that the kids think is awesome to find and bring back to Mom. Which, in turn, gives her nightmares.

I mean, a hospital was blown away. Let's hope her kids don't bring her a handful of sharps. They don't have to be used/diseased to be dangerous.

But things really are moving forward. Many local businesses are already putting their rebuilds in train or moving to new buildings. My own office is one of the moving ones. We'll hopefully be all snug in our new digs in another couple of weeks. New furniture and everything!

And I have internet again. Yay! Wacky, time-wasting good fun has returned. Look, something shiny! Look, something shiny! Hey, look over there - something shiny!

And four hours just magically disappear...heheh....

Good times, man. Good times.

Yes, I'm tired. Why do you ask? Heh.

Anyway. Ahem. Getting the new apartment in shape. Still have a few things in Pesh's garage (sorry! I promise they won't be there forever!), but not sure where exactly to put them here. I have too many books and not enough shelves. Total embarrassment of riches. I love it.

But it does make storing them in a studio apartment a bit fiddly. Oi. At least the movies and CDs are properly stowed. And alphabetized. Yes, I am a total nerd. Yes, I'm totally proud of it.

Oh, and my comic books are properly ordered and ranked, too.
