I just looked down at my bottle of water and realized I'm drinking water from somewhere I've been swimming. It's me soup.

I need a new TV show on DVD to watch. I'm about to finish rewatching seasons 1 & 2 of the Shield (this time with commentary).

I've already seen -

Futurama
Family Guy
Scrubs
24
The Shield
Band of Brothers (thx John)
The Sopranos
ER
Law and Order

...all the way through.

Anyone seen The Wire on HBO? Any good? What about Entourage? I'm probably going to pick up Penn and Teller's Bullshit (thx John again) but that won't hold me for long.

Give me some recommendations here people.

The deep, dark secret I've been keepingCollapse )

I've been keeping a secret from my friends in livejournal land. I'll explain soon. Don't worry, it's a good thing.

Work has actually not been bad for the first week, the office is extremely laid back and I overestimated the dress code (which is nice). So far I'm working on three DRI projects, DRI being Development of Regional Impact. Basically we project the traffic in and out of a proposed development, examine how it will affect the surrounding roadway network, and design improvements as necessary. The job involves a lot more personal interaction than I expected, and I haven't even gone to a public meeting yet. I'm talking back and forth with developers and public officials pretty regularly. I even had a real live meeting with Sarasota County engineers and planners on Thursday. Not bad for my third day. We'll see how it goes this week.

Well, I'm here. Everything is in the house strewn about like crazy. I bought a couch, a big chair, and some other living room stuff today, those will be here on Thursday and I'll finally have furniture. Until then I've just got my bed, a desk, and a dresser. Pretty empty in here. I did get a 27" TV for the living room until I decide on a huge one. The way the room is positioned there's not that much space for a TV so we'll see. The cable company did give me a DVR I didn't ask for which is cool (as long as it doesn't show up on the bill). I haven't used it yet but I will tonight (The Shield) or tomorrow (Lost).

The reason I just got online even though I've been here since Sunday is that apparently I got 2 bad cable modems, one when they started the service and another that I exchanged the first for. The guy today brought a third modem which is working just fine (knock on wood).

Jet is taking being alone okay... when I'm here he seems fine, still follows me to every room but he did that in the old house too. He did mess up a couple of blinds while I was gone yesterday, a little bit of the separation anxiety is showing itself. I'm trying to leave at least twice a day even if I don't have to, just to get him used to the idea that this is home and I'll always come back. I can definitely see the pluses in getting another dog, but we'll see how Jet does. It wouldn't just be for him since I would like to have another, but it's a lot of work and effort and I want to be settled first. Last night he played with me for the first time since we got here. I still can't get him to take a pig ear from me (his favorite) because he knows I'm leaving when I give him one, but I'll give it time. The yard is nice and big for him so that's good. We went for a walk on Bayshore yesterday for a couple of miles and I think I want to make that a regular thing. It's right on the water and it's very close to me, only about a mile away and it's opposite from rush hour traffic.

As far as me, I'm dealing with it. I think once Jet calms down I'll be a lot better, I worry about him a lot more than I do myself. Unfortunately I've only got a week left of freedom, so I'd like to make sure I have everything I need before then. I've done a lot of little things the house needed, outside lighting and some little repairs inside. After the furniture comes Thursday there's just little things to buy, a couple of area rugs, a TV stand, a big bookshelf to hold all my random crap... stuff like that. I will get a new bed eventually (I need a new bed, bedroom furniture, the works) but I don't need that right away. I have to go back to Gainesville one of these weekends to get what I left there (unless someone is making the trip and would like to be paid in slave labor or drugs).
