So bored at work today I may just keel over and die.

The problem with not posting ever is that you end up feeling like you need something really good to post about when you finally do.

I have moved back to Vancouver and I am finding it very strange. It feels like the city has changed and grown up a bit since I left. It just seems different, though I'm not sure I can explain how.

My new apartment is pretty nice, but it is freezing cold and I do not like being cold. The cats hate it because they are used to living in a house with zero noise from other tenants, and now we have people clomping in the hallway and upstairs. Dorian spent most of the day crammed behind the washer dryer. It's also smaller than our last place, which means our stuff is crammed into every nook and cranny (especially in the kitchen).

I am super excited about certain things in Vancouver: better shopping, cheap and good indian food and sushi (Victoria sushi is expensive and mostly bad, indian food in Victoria is even worse) and I can't think of anything else, because now I am thinking about sushi. There is a crazy looking japanese restaurant right across the street from my house, and about 5 within 3 minutes of my work. My mercury levels are about to go up.

Moving sucks so bad. ZOMG. I have so much stuff and don't want to end up a hoarder like my father! So I am getting rid of a ton but still have WAY too much crap. Sigh.

Anyway I am having a yard sale tomorrow which should be either fun or hellish - I am banking on the latter.

Today, my packing has descended into reading my old notebooks and printed out fic I wrote. Some of it is HORRIFYING.

However, I did find a pretty sweet vampire novel, at least part of it plus an outline and character profiles, that is just bad and teenified enough (it was written when I was 17-18) that it just might sell in today's climate - or am I two years too late? Are vampires over already? Anyway, this might be a good project when I am unemployed. A sample line: "Immortality did not save you from flat tires". I am a genius, obv.

Other amusing things I found in my writing books:

A Sentinel slash story based on Mrs. Dalloway - WHAT. I managed to get 30 pages out of this concept. Now in recycling bin.

Part of a long ancient greek story I was writing where the characters are so obviously based on a certain boyband and it's all man-boy love set in Perikles' Athens.

Pages and pages and PAGES of ridic poetry. I wish I could still un-self-consciously write like that!

People on internet forums who use the terms DH, DS, etc make me want to retch.

I packed five whole boxes today! And put all my cds from cd books back in their cases so I can sell them / otherwise rid myself of their presence. In the process, I realized that I had 2 O-Town cds. WHO HAS TWO O-TOWN CDS?!? Only me, in the entire world, I think.

Okay, so it really is ridiculously easy linking this to livejournal.

I might try and start writing in one of these things again, especially if I am unemployed in two weeks, which I expect will be the case (and I am ridiculously excited about that, actually, for the short term). I'm completely out of all and any fandom. Instead, I will probably talk about boring things such as food, knitting, books, moving, job hunting, and other life-related things.

I feel as if facebook and twitter and whatnot have removed my ability to say anything longer than one line...

My current contract ends at the end of the month, and I am so happy to leave that place, but the impending stressfulness of finding a new job is hitting me. Although I would love to enjoy unemployment for a while, I don't want to be a wastrel and I do really want to find a job that I like.

So I am supposed to be applying for jobs right now, a few of which have impending due dates, but all I want to do is read my book and knit my current project. GAH!

Maybe I need a new venue?

uh oh.

I'm starting to exhibit fannish behaviour for the first time in YEARS.

Be warned.
