Maybe Not So Good

But send in the second string!

The job I referenced in Better than Expected turns out to be over a hour and a half drive to the west-northwest of my apartment in Hagerstown, MD. That's almost halfway to Pittsburgh from here. I could get to Jersey or to Harrisburg in that kind of time. Or DC, if I catch the express train just right.

But monster.com is gracious, and provided me with three other "Baltimore Metro Area" opportunities, and one down in Columbia where I JUST MOVED FROM.

Heh.

mmm conversations.
mmhmm *said in a 'yeah-that's-what-I-meant-typea-sorta-way-...-or-at-least-I-think-so-but-I'm-going-to-pretend-that-I-meant-something-else sortof way*

*grins*
ever tried responding to people only in 'mm's? It works surprisingly well.

It's just been said, in the past, that all roads lead to my house, and you've yet again validated that theory.
I live near pittsburgh *shrugs*
So it tickled my lil' ol' fancy.

Context, Tone, and Expression
The three things that can convey enough meaning to have a meaningful conversation without using any words. I love those.

I haven't been to Pittsburgh in a while. I have no idea what downtown looks like now with the new stadium and all. I figure the Tower of Ignorance is still looming over Oakland, though.

One of my college friends was from Plum, and one of my fraternity brothers lived in Altoona. I didn't get to see a lot else of the surrounding areas around Pittsburgh. No wheels at the time.

And nothing wrong with fancies tickled. *smirk*

and via lj... we can use context...
and maybe expression *in emotes*
*thoughtfully mmms*

Downtown looks much the same.
the view across the bridge isn't all that different, either... it looks like they moved the stadium over a little bit.
and left rubble where it was.

The cathedral still looms.
I love sitting in the throne chairs randomly.
It's amusing :-)
and running up and down the stairs.
they're very acoustic.
I've brought my guitar there a couple times.
I've danced there several times.
mm.
That sculpture outside the carnegie museum of art also has fun acoustics.
mega accused me of trying to find its something (maybe resonant vibration) and shake it apart.
*grins*
I was just halftoning up the scale 'cause it sounded cool.

The area where I live usually wouldn't be counted as 'around pittsburgh' except that that's the nearest majorish city.
It's only there because that's where two major (?) highways cross.
The outskirts of nowhere.
I have fun :-)

Would Something Context Sensitive Need to Be Washed With A Context-Free Detergent?
I think emotes pass for expression. *eyes wandering while he thinks* Yeah.

Three Rivers Rubbled. That could be an odd nursery rhyme.

One trip into the cathedral we went to the 36th floor and the other elevator was working. The 40th floor was locked and the 37th was just exposed piping and ductwork. I figure someone was working on it. The 38th had a locked office and two bathrooms with windows. The floors at that point aren't that big.

And that's the "natural frequency" you were accused of searching for. Ah, the CMA. Never went in, but I'll always remember the building fondly. Speaking of which, I wonder where my rollerblades are ...

Outskirts of nowhere, eh? There's cases to be made for that.

No.
It's actually a redneck competition whose aim is to say sweet things.

Three Rivers Rubbled.
and the silver spoon.

*grins*

When dancing at the cath once, we had time afterward.
I rode up and down and up and down in the elevator with Stacy.
It was rather amusing.
Until the security guard type looked at us real funny.
It was one of those 'giggle-at-everything' stages.
*shrugs*
I'm still occasionally in one of those stages.
I think it comes with being amused by a great deal of life.

I love their library, just because it's a library... and it has stacks.
*grins*
stacks are way cool.
I love the sculpture room.
I love the new exhibits.
I don't particularly go for the painting galleries, though I've been known to spend large amounts of time there.

One of the nice things about living out here is that nobody cares what you're doing.
I have sung opera at the top of my lungs at two in the morning, outside and naked.
I enjoy odd experiments :-)
