The Little Things

I'm not saying I don't like Northern Virginia. I like it here just fine. But there are some things that make it abundantly clear that I'm not in Phoenix anymore.

I haven't walked around barefoot since November. Prior to November I was barefoot approximately 16 hours a day. Now, my toes only see sunlight when I'm bathing or asleep. And, now that I think about it, there's no literal sunlight during either of those activities so my toes are probably extremely deficient in Vitamin D.

My car is covered is crap. In Arizona I had a license plate in the back and a Save Roe Now bumper sticker. Now I have a plate in the back AND the front, an inspection sticker in the middle of my windshield, a city sticker next to that, an apartment complex sticker on the back window and a hospital parking sticker on the review mirror. And the bumper sticker which is looking a little ragged and needs to be replaced.

Stairs. Phoenix was a largely horizontal city, Virginia is more vertical. 'Nuff said.

In other news, Stage 4 of New Employment apparently lasts 3 weeks. Maybe week 9 will start Stage 5.

And finally:
3. Wolves of the Calla: The Dark Tower V - Stephen King.
