A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Remembered what it was...

...that I was going to say. Coming home last night, it felt weird not to see mountains in the distance. It felt weird not to see "distance," actually. I mean, nice to be home, certainly. Warm and cosy in my little apartment, everything familiar around me, chatting with the roomie as he played a computer game, catching up on my DVR'ed shows. But still...

Weird.

Yes....

And wierd for other reasons as well. One of which was not having people around in the mornings and evenings. I think it is a good thing that I miss that. ;P

Also, not waking up and having every animal in the house next to me in the morning was also an odd sensation yesterday.

Lack of "Distance" is the one thing that really tends to make me freak out when I go back east. Not being able to see 100 miles at a glance takes some getting use to. That must be why Yorkshire was my favorite part of the UK. Hills and I could see "distance".

I checked with the mountains this morning, and they miss you, too.

There's a reason why so many of us have gathered here :).

Oh and I recommend shopping therapy. It worked for me today.

Yeah. Was weird at home last night, and more so this morning, to have it be so quiet and empty.

The lack of horizon freaked me out when I was in eastern NC. That and the fact the sky was one solid color with no clouds most of the time.

Yeah, I feel strange since getting back, too.

And I know, you're all going to say, "But you weren't there."

To which I reply, "Not that you know about..."

I thought that I saw Ted peering in the window at the Coffee house in Winter Park where they had the Hot White Chocolate. ;P
