The Wait Is Over

My wife received an email yesterday from her soon-to-be employers informing her of which city she (and thusly, I) will be working out of.

Atlanta.

A big surprise for us, but a happy one. Staying in the city really simplifies things. No stressful interstate moves, no forward planning to visiting our parents around the holidays, and we know the area. I'll admit there was something attractive about the idea of a "fresh start" in a new city, hanging out again with old friends and all that, but I'm also a little relieved about staying with what's familiar and not having to say goodbye to anyone. So here we'll stay until the company decides my wife's talents would be better put to use in, I don't know, Cleveland.

Hey, don't blame me. I'm just saying, I know how easy it would be to point the finger of blame at me. And that's Morandddii-doo-doo.

That's not a link to a Harry Potter spoiler, by the way. I'm interested in hearing your point of view on this, Crane. It's long, but excellently done. The movie title pretty much sets up what it is about, so it doesn't take a lot of outside explanation. It's a conspiracy theorists dream movie, for sure.

The thing is, I've watched it... Part I is great and seems to be accurate from the sources cited - haven't done any fact checking, so take that at face value. Part III will make you very, very angry, whether you take it to be fact or fiction. Part II, however, is... er... it's difficult to comprehend. It's a conspiracy theorists wet dream, but I can't say with any amount of honesty whether or not I believe it... or disbelieve it either. It just hangs there in the open all pink and naked. I'm interested to hear what you have to say about it.

So... verdict?

This is the Real Mike Moran, and I am calling SHENANIGANS!!!!!

I would never ruin Harry Potter for you, Crane. Only someone with a fist that is blank would commit such a heinous crime against geekdom.

Me? No way! I am so not... so... I wouldn't... LOOK OVER THERE!

I suspected as much.

I forgot my first principles: if someone does something only an asshole would do, the smart money's on Heath being the culprit.

Also, I'm moved into the new place but will not have an internet connection until the 30th at the earliest. I'd steal some connectivity from some of my neighbors, but they're all stingy bastards: all of their wireless connections are password protected. I hope to get back to blogging soon.
