Roughing it.

We're back at the house, parked on the new part of the driveway.  It's tough out here, poaching our own wi-fi, plugging into our own AC, but we're up to the job. 

Maria pointed us toward an interesting possibility in Arizona - a ranch/farm in Arizona that caters to women can use a caretaker (two caretakers?).  Exciting!  You can never know how something will work in real-life, but on paper, this sounds great.  Annie has initiated contact with one of the women, whom she describes as "New Age-y."  Maybe I'd describe the mindset as Zen.  Either way, it's something I can work with.  I guess what I want to say about this is that the prospect is appealing and thrilling, which may mean I'm easy.

I considered linking to their website, but I'm hesitating.  Naturally, if it's on the 'Net it's public, so I don't know why I'm being so cautious on their behalf.  I just don't know how safe they feel in Arizona (not a trivial concern, by the way).  Let's not over-analyze.  If you're curious about the place, let me know and I'll send you the website privately.  If you scoop our gig, I'll hunt you down and read you Vogon poetry

Cool, DD! Thanks! I don't get to see who uses it, but sometimes I get some money, which I [heart]!

Blogger has some fun new templates, so I gave this a try. It's hard to tell, but there's a road in it.

I can respect your not saying it "out loud" here - I have told hardly anyone about my potential job, either, because it's not a done deal yet - don't want to jinx it, don't want to be embarrassed if it doesn't work out, don't want them to find out I'm talking about it for fear they will think I'm assuming it's a done deal... Lucky for me, I was the one that sent you the opportunity, so I know who they are, and I've been to their website, and I know that we will visit you there if you end up there... hell, we might even stay there if you don't! :-)

Maria: Yes, to all those things. It's so preliminary right now that nothing is known, and I don't want to be the fool.

I'm curious about your potential job, but you can tell me about it after you land it. Meanwhile, I'll send impotent but well-meaning generalized optimistic thoughts your way! [I think they're more for you than for any effect they might have.]

How exciting!

I think you're making the right etiquette call by not linking the site openly, though I can't say why I think that.

But FYI I laugh at Vogon poetry - laugh! I have "Oh Freddled Gruntbuggly" on heavy rotation on the mp3 player.

Thanks for the validation. I can't articulate it either, obviously.

Oh, you're a tough case! But, it's on audio somewhere? Do tell!
