my cat was at the foot, and at first i thought he'd decided to go into a hind leg/ear scratching frenzy. no, he was sound asleep. and the bed was still shaking, and my laptop was bouncing. this went on for about 30 seconds, then gradually stopped. and i'm not talking about a little shake. i did hear a faint, steady rumble and wondered if it could be a train. but then i looked at the foot of my bed where i'd just plugged in one of those kitschy, religious nightlights of a woman being consumed by flames. my new place was built by a powerful catholic. i can't go into detail, but he probably performed a few exorcisms in his day.
so anyway, other than the poltergeist, i'm really loving the new place. but have been too busy to be online. closed on my house yesterday, still don't have a real phone, just got internet but it's screwed up. i thought maybe i could keep my comcast address, but it doesn't look like it, so if you emailed me at comcast it would have bounced. and if you posted here, i might have missed it since i hadn't changed my profile address.
the ceilings here go up to the sky. and speaking of sky -- i can see it from every window! no more staring at the side of the neighbor's house! stars! sunlight! fresh air!! no exhaust fumes! it's like staying at a bed and breakfast without the breakfast. and with a shaking bed.
