A death in the family


As I'm sure many people have read already, John Inman passed away. A great pity - the man was a very, very funny guy, and by all accounts a great person. And although "Menswear," and "I'm free!" will be what he's remembered for, I'll remember he was far funnier than just a couple of simple catchphrases. I'll always take a moment to watch "Are You Being Served?" if I see it on TV.

Otherwise, Q is off on his ski trip, so I'm being a bum tonight. This weekend I've got to do some cleaning and straightening up, plus take care of some bills - and, of course, play some City of Heroes. :) Next week is spring break at work, so it should be fairly quiet, and we have Friday off. Friday night we're having his aunt and uncle (the one who sold us the house) over for dinner for a little one-year anniversary party. Not sure when Q starts the new job, but he should also be finished with the Navy next Friday as well, thank goodness. Mom called and it looks like next weekend we'll head up to get the truck finally.

And that's about it. :)

I thought the plan was to move back to San Diego when Q got out. Has that changed, or does he need to stay in the area until his inactive duty bits run out too?

Trust me, if it were up to me, I'd already be packed and have the plane tickets in hand.

Alas, Fortune conspires against us. As it is I just started a new job that I'd like to stay in at least a few more months. Meanwhile he's looking for a starter teaching position, which would likely have a one-year commitment. Plus, we're unable to sell the house until February of next year, and we haven't decided if we're going to, or keep it as an investment.

So, basically, inertia has taken hold for lack of large scissors to cut ties. We expect that if he does find a teaching position it would run August to August, putting us back in San Diego by the end of 2008. If, however, no teaching job materializes, we'll be back in the spring.

on the plus side, we both hate it here and long to go back to San Diego, so I have no doubts that even with a few minor delays, it'll happen soon enough. :)

Thanks for asking. :D

I know, I know, I'm working on it.

In the meanwhile, it's CHOCOLATE JUNIORS TONIGHT! :)
