"Are you alive?"
Well, sort of. I've been working, going to school and marching in my own personal freak-out parade since I reached Los Angeles. I think that means I'm alive, but I haven't been able to sit still long enough to think about it much. Let me check my pulse...yep, I've got one. Woohoo! I'm alive!!!!

"So, how was the move?"
Crappy.12 days without Mateo suuuuucked. Plus, Mateo had to drive across the hottest part of the country in a truck without air conditioning, and we still have boxes stacked ass-cheek high. This is what happens when Spurious doesn't get home until 9:30PM every night.

"How's work?"
My full-time position at the hospital is usually supplemented by a part-time position. The folks in both positions quit, which meant that I had a job, but no help, until this week. The new person is awesome, and the work environment, while busy is wonderful, so I'm happy, if amazingly harried, all day. It's 180 degrees away from my old job, where I had time to do important things. Like blog...and pee.

"And school? What's that like?"
I have 10 units of chemistry and a full time job. Looking at the previous sentence, you'll note that I must've been smoking fat crack rocks when I signed up for school. I'm holding my own (there's too much damn math in chemistry), and hoping I don't have to drop out...this shit is hard!!!

"So how will this effect my blog reading, dammit?"
I haven't posted for a quadrillion years, so I'll be surprised if anyone's even still a-readin'. Things are hectic, so I'll still post, but not every day. Probably once or twice a week, until I get my crap together. But I'll still be a-lurkin' at your blog. Lurkin like a mutha.

Lurkin' is sexy.

Thank you all so much for your concern and sweet comments! Ya'll are the bestest!!!
Random Fruit Fact: The Aronia

"Seemingly phased by nothing, this shrub will tolerate anything thrown at it: swampy ground, dry sandy soil, drought, salt, and pollution. It is probably pickiest about its light, tolerating partial shade but becoming more leggy and affected by mildew with in darker corners."

I wanna tolerate anything in my environment and be leggy! But not affected by mildew. That's icky.

Learn more about the aronia, here. If you ya wanna?

    The PLUM is ALIVE! The joy of RSS, I didn't spend lots of energy checking over and over if you'd posted, but when you I am!

    Hang in there with the chemistry. I'll send good vibes your way!

    I checked on you every day - sometimes even twice! So glad you're back on line and the move all happened OK. It's a shame we might not get new updates every day but then I just keep telling myself that Intermittent Plum is better than no Plum at all. :)

    I didn't read yet, but I must say, YEE-HAW, Plum's back!!!!

    First, I must sing, "In your fruity bonnet, with all the plums upon it, you'll be the grandest bitch, in the freak-out parade!"
    Boxes ass-cheek high? This is a relative concept. If you're old and flabby, that might not be too high at all! But in the case of young, hot, sexy, oh my, that IS high! Those are some high, high boxes you got there, Plum.
    If you have to choose between blogging and peeing . . . we don't mind if you pee while you blog.
    So glad you love your job(s). You'll get through the chemistry. You have to, Plum. I watched Tommy Lee Goes to College, and he failed chemistry. I have ALWAYS said, ever since I met you, "That Plum! She is SO much brighter than Tommy Lee!" Don't make a liar out of me, Plum. He had a hot tutor. You could have a hotter tutor -- get Ern to tutor you.

    (deep, satisfied sigh) OK. You're back, and life can go back to normal. I know you won't post daily, but I'll check daily. Maybe we should all stop by every day and leave rude comments, just to give us the illusion you're always around. Cause we'll all still be here.

    I don't envy you the work load, darlin' ... but we're all confident you can handle it ...

    YOU CAN DOOYET! take your time getting settled - it doesn't all have to happen right now ~ lower those standards and enjoy the funk - and good luck on the math! (blak! gag! gasping for air) - you have loads of empathy vibes comin' at you from me~

    OK, now I can breathe again.

    Damn girl, I was missing ya. So glad you are back. Of course, now I am finally in the Burgh and your ass is in Cal. Not good timing, Plum. :(

    So glad you're back. Moving sucks all by itself. I can't imagine chemistry and full-time work while still having to unpack.

    But you're back in California where you wanted to be. Things will be good. I'll be checking in to see when you update. Please, come lurk all you want!

    I'm so glad you're back. What were you thinking, leaving us here all alone without your blogging? Huh?

    Don't ever fucking do that again, okay?
