Notification <email@example.com> Subject: [dazed] the time is now well, in the morning i'll wake up, finish packing, clean the floor, and head out in the beetle to california. it still seems unreal, but i reckon it'll pass. this is the wackiest thing i've done with my life since joining the army, and i agree with grandma when she said this struck her as a much much much better thing that joining the army. on friday i returned to chicago and closed my bank accounts ... well, actually i left about $500 in checking and i've got to balance to make sure nothing will bounce, but i've a happy bankroll to bring me out here, then a few thousand dollars with which to pay rent and cover tuition on upon arrival. then i went by enteract, going out to lunch with vernell and sharon, and buying pizza in the evening for those employees present. saturday, i got the two kegs for our party, then went with the family to the humanities convocation. afterwards it was barbequeing, drinking and hot tub madness. beth dropped by later in the evening and there was some nice send-off kissin'. today? pretty lazy, we woke up late and had breakfast at aunt sonya's. beth again dropped by and we had a little walk and a talk together. the day was cleaning and packing and watching tv. we also helped chad grade cs225 exams. tomorrow? wake up, finish packing, drop off my cap and gown, await the ups shipment, do additional tuning to the car, pack up the car and hit the road. i start one week from today - next monday that is. i'm betting lucy will make it out there without any major troubles. the odometer oughtta flip right around CA. I'll snap a picture, i promise. one friend observed before i could think of it the symbolism of making a "new start". perhaps i'll find some flowers for my hair as i drive through san francisco. :) well, consider this a preview of a forthcoming journal entry, and a thanks to those of you on this list who have played key roles in making my future seem all the more reasonable. i love you all. see you on the other side. dannyman .. terminating transmission from urbana .. -- dannyman - http://www.dannyland.org/~dannyman/ -*DaZeD!*-- http://www.dannyland.org/cgi-bin/majordomo for assistance.
