tell 'em i ain't coming back

I'm done with New York, save for continuing to support/sort of telepresence-something at NYC Resistor, and the pissing-few things I have in storage.

I said I'd go back. Clung to the thought. Don't want to, any longer.

Finding a way to get everything there, here. Finding a place here, where "here" is currently 21st and Guerrero, and maybe later the badlands of the Mission, the empty zone by the freeway.

I still want to be involved there, but I am far too busy with rediscovered passions to put up with living there.

I am alive and strangely well.

(Hey, LJ. I haven't seen you in a while. Turns out Google Plus is kind of pathetic and Facebook is far worse.)

Well 2000 miles closer (cause of course it's all about me) but still in a rad city. Also, yay LJ! Tempted ask what you're doing but I'm sure you'll say in due course.

Old tech FTW.

I'm writing a web app for a solar power engineering company. I'm working on some open source software. It's pretty good, though now I'm combing through sublets and constantly low-level freaked out that I don't have a place to live.

Yep, interesting how life moves... I never thought you'd not have the farm! But hooray, BC.

Muahahahaha!

-- love, a girl who played Sim City not so she could build cities but just to mess around with the terrain forming simulator, and spent her high school prom arm-deep in a model estuary.

Financial boat anchors, aye. I'm sort of eyeing actual boats, in that stupid-arse way that engineers do.

And north coast? It seems doable, if you like houses on permafrost pilings. Suspect the Inner Passage is much kinder, however.

Hello! Wish we could've hung out while you were on the east coast, but I completely understand...

I'm sorry I never made it up to Boston, yes. :/

Well, and this, the other thing:

This is one of the bike rides I've gone on since I've been out here. (Two months ago, now.) There was a certain moment at about mile 30 that was just... so absurdly much the best thing ever.

Best of luck in SF. Come back and visit sometime, though.

Thank you.

I have an ill-defined Plan To Be There At Some Point.

I'm sorry.

Oh, hey - someone else to visit in the Bay Area!

(I'm probably going to be looking at post-docs down there, just because.)

Thank you. I am a stunning amount of happier. It was really good to meet you and get to start + participate in things with you, though.

Moving stuff across the country, huh? I'm not sure how I'd work out the time off, but if you ever needed company for a road trip, you know I'm in. :)

Thanks. :) I don't want to do the drive right now, though. And I'm not in a hurry to move stuff. Still don't have a permanent place to live.

I wasn't posting much either.

I remember you because, I think, we're the only two people with "greylight" as an interest. Also, tea on Park Ave.

Sad to have you leave, but I'm really glad to have gotten to know you. Hopefully I'll pay you a visit in SF sometime.
