no one on the corner has swagger like us

just rereading some of my past entries, and I'm just kinda blah about it all. I used to be a freewheelin' weirdo with no particularly strong opinions about anything, and then I just had to take an interest in politics and stupid conspiracy theories. I ranked pretty high on some dumb "How Libertarian Are You?" quiz, and I gotta shake my head and laugh a little cuz I'm totally an anarchist - despite my hatred of labels. Maybe I'm not an anarchist, either. Maybe I just would like to round up every person on this rock who I dig and take them with me somewhere awesome with no big bad daddy telling us how to live.
Anyway, this hermit period is coming to an end, thankfully. Joe and I are moving somewhere else. We were gonna move to NH and be part of the Free State Project, but while it sounds nice and all, we're just gonna stick close to home but be closer to our friends. NH is okay, but not that great. We met some interesting folks but no one who we really clicked with. We're better off moving closer to the friends we have.

In other news, the right side of my throat hurts when I swallow. It's probably the aids.

I am addicted to this song, and the show that uses it as it's theme, "Weeds":
Little Boxes - Malvina Reynolds

I discovered last night that the one comment I ever left on the IMDB was used on a most excellent website. I feel honored and tickled, and I even signed up for WordPress to let the author of the site know, except it won't let me log in. C'est la vie. I think they chose my comment cuz I said Dean Cameron was adorable or something. Flattery gets you places.

I think i need to change my email notification sound. Every time Borat says "wow wow wee wah" my speakers are turned up too high and it scares the bejeezus outta me. Receiving email should not make me jump out my skin.

Joe bought me a pair of handpainted underpants by the Let's Paint TV guy. That is really the highlight of my week. Maybe he'll have me on his show to model these fancy ass drawers. But seeing as how he's on public access and I am a broke ass, I doubt I'll be in Los Angeles anytime soon.

I'm sorry you are not a fan of moving to Live Free or Die land for liberty. Maybe you can give us a second chance this March? The Liberty Forum is happening in Nashua from the 5th to the 8th.

I moved here from TN back in September and couldn't be happy overall. Sure, I miss some of my friends, family and old haunts. But I've met so many new cool people and am having a great time overall.

Please don't count us out just yet.

It's still an option, maybe just in the future and not right away. Besides, our big plan is to find somewhere really remote, build our own earthships, and quietly withdraw from society - so y'all won't even know we're there, anyway.
For the moment, it's best for us that we follow through with the plan we have. Maybe we'll reside in NH someday, and maybe we won't. Hell, I'd like to spend a year or two RVing and maybe even live abroad a while too. Gotta do all that while I still can. I'm in no rush to get to NH "for liberty"; last I checked, I do what I want when I want, and I don't answer to anyone, so I can't complain about a lack of freedom, here.
I hope you won't hold it against us if we choose not to add ourselves to your numbers right away, or ever. Nothing personal, we just go where we want to go.

As you know, the FSP doesn't officially "happen" until 20,000 people sign. I'd remind you that you're not backing out of a commitment until that happens.

With 20,000 people, you're sure to find some that you click with, and with the growing number of participants, you'll find a growing variety of people.

And yes, the Weeds theme rocks. It's the most catch annoying song I've ever heard. I like a lot of the variations on it better though. :)
