The stars are shining in the sky. All is well.

Me and Jamie will move to Seattle, Washington (a Western state; I currently live in an Eastern state) by the end of August. People who aren't close to Seattle, if you want to visit New Jersey and us before we move, between now and August is a good time to do so. Astrid and Trudi are the first English friends of mine to actually come into the New York area, at a time I can harass them. Housing will be provided, if you can handle rooms that smell like cat.

I miss some English foods and need to find novelty shops selling English junk food in New York. That would please me.

I have not cut my hair since I made it over here, in August '05. I've never had hair grow this long before. I kind of like it, and it's cheaper than cutting it, so everyone wins. That is, until this ridiculously hot US summer comes along and I cry. I mean, I'm already suffering from the seasonal allergies - I've yet to get used to the new and crazy weather. A summer in the US is going to be more intense than anything I've encountered in the UK. And then to get to Seattle we're going to be driving a vehicle across the whole country. That's 3,000 miles. That's about the same distance as it is from New Jersey to England. It's crazy. I just hope we get good air conditioning in this vehicle we're taking.

But crazy is what is necessary. I want to visit several states. I want to say that in one year of being here I've seen more states than most Americans will in their lives. I want to learn more about Jamie's history, which is all over the place in this country. What better way to do so, than the aforementioned road trip?

There's a lot more that's been going on, but I've felt apathetic about updating, or really coming onto this computer at all. The occasional browse for information and that's it. Maybe I need to spend some time doing something constructive, to show it off and feel I have something of value to put up here.

As for tonight, I'm now going to stop typing and try a bit of Mario Kart online. I'm apparently in the realm of not being bad at it.

  • Ooh, hello.

    I remembered how to log in on here. Gosh, dredging up the past is like using one of those snakes to get the gunk out of the bathtub. Apparently I…

    This came up while playing FIFA 12. A bit of NBA Elite-style Jesus-posin'! This is also me posting it into LJ to see if I can find a workaround to…

    You know what? I used to write a load of stuff in here. It was only when a family member from back in England asked how long it's been since I got…
