Andrei in the office

He surfaces!

So, I'd say the move to the PNW is complete, but we still have no idea when the movers are going to show up.

We've entered this sort of strange limbo phase of the move. We're up here. That much I am sure of. The registration for the car has been changed over and the Matrix has plates. They are normal, boring plates; but that too is in process. I got my temporary WA driver's license yesterday. I decided to go for the Max Maven pose and smile.

I suppose the limbo feeling may be due to the fact that our sleep cycles have gone to absolute hell. While we've pretty much stayed in the same place in the time zone... we've moved extremely far on the north/south axis. 1200 miles. The main effect of this is as follows:
Tomorrow, in L.A. there will be: 14 hours 23 minutes of sun (Well sunrise to sunset)
Here, there will be: 16 hours of sun.

Granted, if you actually take the twilight's the difference is more obvious:
LA: 17h 51m
WA: 20h 15m

So, we are without sunlight for less than 4 hours. If your body is tuned to sunlight, this is a bit of an adjustment.

People are friendly here. At times it's alarming. So far I've only been cut off once by a rude driver who was honking. As he barreled past me I was amused to see a California license plate.

Well, today we are off to get jnanacandra's old WA license back and possibly check out the Pagan stores in the area. Oh, The state approve my business license, so Apolo Productions is now official in WA.

I'll post more often once I have a desk. Things slowed down yesterday when I discovered one of my main monitors died. :-/

Buzznet, shameless plug...

So, for my moving trip, I really got into posting to Buzznet. It lets me email photos from my phone directly to the blog.

So, Now I will shamelessly whore them. Initial membership is free. You can upgrade to have individual skins and extra profile photos, but I'm doing just fine without.

If you are interested in checking them out, go to the following link:

Yes, this will get me buzznet karma if you sign up thru this link.

It's kinda cool and I'm looking for a way to unify my buzznet and LJ feeds into one feed.

Hrmn... ;)
