gotta get behind the mule in the morning and plow

I quit my job yesterday.

(Good sweet Jesus, that felt good to type.)

In light of recent circumstances (now I sound like my resignation letter), I'm soaring. I mean, I'm living out of a laundry basket, but I don't have it so bad after all, do I?

I'm having a steamy hot affair with my city before I leave her.

I slept until two on Sunday (much needed rest), then sat on the couch at the Ivory Tower watching 60 Minutes with one of my all-time favorite fellas and a G & T. I danced. I got up Monday morning, got a physical and, at four pm, gave my notice.

Then I lay on a blanket in Bryant Park and watched Monty Python's Holy Grail with about 2,500 other people eating hummus out of Whole Foods bags. I went to bed and woke up in a world with an expiration date. Crowded trains, catty bosses and that omni-pressive sense of pressure be damned.

I'm home free, Internet. Home freaking free. All that's stopping me now is me. And I feel like putting a stop to that, I'll tell ya.

This blog makes me want to jump up, quit my own job, and shout "fuck yeah!" at the sky.

Good for getting all that shit out of the way. Now the only thing left is to kick some ass.

It does sound like you are enjoying the city before you go. You sound very upbeat about the whole thing keep it up.

that was one of the most awesome posts i have read in a very very long time.

"refreshing" is actually a very good word to describe the feeling one gets when reading this post.

wishing you much peace of mind and rapture.

I hadn't read this post yet when I commented with the words "in light of the recent".. great minds? at least a little? ;-)

OK, you know I love you and I support you in all that you are doing, but I'm getting scared I won't see you.

And... And...
