I've just made a couple pages so I can store lists of posts that relate to given topics, and stuck them up. Were I brilliant about technical stuff, I'd use some sort of tagging system, but I'm not, so that's that! I think this should work pretty well for now.

In other news, I've finally joined the demonic forces. I got myself a cell phone today. I can't figure out how to turn it completely off, though. I can make the ringer silent, but off, not that I can see. Does that seem weird?

I spent an hour or so trying to enter some phone numbers in.

I'm planning a rather cool trip now, to my Peace Corps group reunion, so I've spent time lately trying to get things taken care of, stupid things, but they need to be done.

But the trip! The trip is going to be GREAT! In addition to seeing my old Peace Corps gang, I'm going to visit some friends from former lives and grad school and stuff, driving across country.

I'm planning to drive across to Montana to visit one friend, then Seattle to visit another, then Oregon, then the reunion in California, then another friend in the Bay Area, then Colorado, New Mexico, and Oklahoma! I still have to figure out how much time I need for my visits, but I'm getting things in place.

/happy dance!


  1. The trip sounds great! I'm envious.

    But I'm still happy for you: you've clearly earned this.

  2. Road trip + friends sounds great!

  3. On my phone, I use the "hang up" or "end" button to turn my phone both off and on. Does that help?

  4. What a fantastic trip - good for you!

    Delurking to say...

    Have a wonderful time and drive carefully! I'm envious!

    On my phone too, you have to hold down the end button for a couple of took me weeks and intervention by my stepdaughter to find that out.

  6. That worked, Terminal and Theodora, thanks! Who'd think to turn a phone back ON with the RED off button?

    Thanks for the encouragement, all. I'm really looking forward to seeing some friends I haven't seen since we were in grad school and some I haven't seen in longer!
