[Comments] (5) An actual update for once: This weekend was grandpa's funeral. As far as funeral's go... well, it wasn't as sad as I thought it would be (which is actually not saying much...). It's good to know that grandpa led a full life and was well-liked and loved. Even though I miss him terribly, I know he must be much happier after how sick he was, and I think that makes letting go easier. A bit. It was so sad to see Aunt Helen and Uncle Larry's headstones. I don't think I'd been to that cemetery since Aunt Helen died.

In other news, after the funeral Leonard, Sumana and I went to Target to buy presents for Susanna. By fate, they were sold out of OOTP paperback, so we went to Russo's books, a fun independent bookseller in Bakersfield (which is actually where I bought OOTP when it first came out). I thought to ask if they were hiring, and they are! For morning shifts. So I have my whole ideal daily schedule worked out now. I can ask for fridays off, drive to LA thursday afternoon to work, then have all day friday to work here as well. I dropped off my resume on Sat and am going to be proactive and call on Monday to hopefully schedule an interview for Tuesday or Wednesday. I really hope I get this job, it would be sooo perfect. I may not have too much retail experience, but I have a degree! and that ought to be worth something.

A lot of people have been asking when I am going to move back to Bakersfield, and a la Rick Blaine, I reply casually, "I never make plans that far ahead." Actually, Tara, the girl taking my room, has been travelling in India and her email is over quota, so every one I send her asking when she is moving in gets bounced back. I have taken matters into my own hands and decided the day is Sunday. This gives me plenty of time to tie up lose ends, take another load back to Bakersfield and get a job at Russo's, hang out with LA friends one "last" time, visit Marisa in SD on Friday for her birthday, pack up the rest of my stuff and super-clean. If Tara shows up before Sunday, I'll just have to do some rearranging.

Why is it that this whole entry seems like a bout of deja vu?

...oh, right.

You really just described some one as "well liked" when talking about a funeral. Am I the only one have repressed memories surge?
