Office Move, Part 4

I spoke too soon when I posted last Friday that I'd survived the move.  It's madness.  Nothing works, from storage shelves that aren't tall enough to hold the 50 or so large 3-ring binders that are presently stacked up on the floor around my desk, to computer firewall issues that now deny me access to things that I could do in the other building.  If we had windows that opened, I'd be thinking about jumping right about now (I'm on the 22nd floor).  But, really, I couldn't even do that, since it would mean I'd never find out what's going to happen to Chris and Toby ....  So maybe I'll just crawl under my desk and hide out for a while.

25 days and counting, Aline.  It's all that's keeping me sane!

I seriously miss my music.  A requiem mass would do just fine today.

Hey! So you finally got curious and came over to take a look, huh? Or have you been reading for a while and just staying mum? Anyway, now that you're here, explore a little, get the feel of the place. Why not open an account while you're at it (you can just do a free account to start, if you want ....)

Do you like my icon? It was made for me by a very talented friend. I have lots more ...

Me Celia again. (I sound like Me Abbie when I say that.) Yes I like your icon but I've been wondering why you chose that login.

Re: waving hello
The simple answer is that all the easy-to-remember things I came up with had already been taken. So I just fell back on something from heraldry: "aswanargent" = "a swan argent" = "a silver swan". When crazybutsound offered to make an icon for me, I asked her to do the swan. Most of the other icons I use were also made by her (you'll like the Carnivàle one. The Due South, Callum Keith Rennie, and Paul Gross icons are courtesy of alinewrites.
