Bless me diary for I have sinned. It's been about two months since my last confession.

In that time I have lied once or twice (shit, that's a lie), but only to protect someone from something painful (misplaced loyalties). I have used just about every name in vain (including my own). I've had impure thoughts and done impure things (but only to...

Incongruent lapses of memory.

Remembering all that I have given up.

Remembering all that I have not said.

Remembering why I get up in the morning.

But forgetting.

Again.

Two weekends ago I was in San Diego. Got lit up, talked with a woman, Adrianna, for 2 hours. About an hour into the conversation her friend came up and said "she's a lesbian you know" to which I replied "so what, The Dude doesn't care about sexual orientation, the Dude abides?" Adrianna laughed-we were discussing the greatness of The Big Lebowski at...

First week of work went well. Nothing too out of the ordinary. Not that I would expect it to be. There is a Y just down the block and I've signed up for a membership. They've got a nice pool that's outside but completely covered so you get the heat but not the burning sun. It's heated in the winter too...

Aspen is beautiful. Expensive, but beautiful. Surrounded by mountains, large towering green mountains tracked with ski slopes, ski lifts, and snowslide chutes.

Wedding is about 2 hours away. We had a BBQ last night as the rehearsal dinner. It was the first time the parents of the bride and groom had met. I grilled vegetables and meats. It was a good time. It's taken...

I'm in Denver. A friend of mine is getting married in Aspen on Wednesday. Originally I had planned to visit the Denver office of the company I used to work for and so I agreed to pick a friend up at the airport this morning so that she wouldn't have to rent a car. I met the bride-to-be and her man yesterday for...

So I'm employed again.

The company that interviewed me in their Anchorage office and then again down here gave me a verbal offer. I go in Friday to get the offer letter and sign some forms. Yay!

The extra most special bonus part about it? I'm only earning a little less than I was in Anchorage-where the market is supposed to have inflated...

Wow, quite a coincidence that I decided to log back a month (to the day!) later.

The trip was great. Had a great time. I really need to win the lottery, working sucks compared to driving around and visiting people. Is that job somewhere? I mean I'd like to visit friends, but I guess I could visit other people too, might as well if...

I read them all out of order, but if I were to do it over I'd read them in the order he wrote them.
There is a couple characters that are in nearly all the books (one big one that was in Skinny Dip that Hiaasen didn't even name so there will be a big "Ah ha" for you when you read the rest) so it's kinda cool to see the progression, but it's not nesscary. Skin Tight was the first book Mick Stranahan was in, that's a great one. There isn't a bad one in the bunch.

Powering down. I'll be incognito for a bit, at least until June or so.

Be Good.
evilflapjack:

Be Good? Hell no! But I hope you have an amazingly fun trip full of astoundingly beautiful places and people. I'll miss you so much! We'll of course keep in touch and I swear I'm coming to visit at some point!

Come baaaaack!!!
