A Short One...

.:But First Things First:.

With much gratitude to Gyn and Sean, I finally found a place to move in. I'll be staying at a place in Shaw Boulevard for the time being, and it's pretty close Lourdes School, so that should give you an idea about its proximity. It's not the best I could get, but it will more than suffice for me at this point.

I move in around tomorrow, I suppose.

.:Got This From Kathy...:.

LONDON, (AFP) - British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly-named village.


While British visitors are finding it hilarious, the residents of F---ing are failing to see the funny side, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

Only one kind of crimimal ever stalks the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border -- cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humour and a screwdriver.

But the local authorities are hitting back and with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.

"We will not stand for the F---ing signs being removed," the officer told the broadsheet.

"It may be very amusing for you British, but F---ing is simply F---ing to us. What is this big F---ing joke? It is puerile."

Local guide Andreas Behmueller said it was only the British that had a fixation with F---ing.

"The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg," he explained.

"Every American seems to care only about 'The Sound of Music' (the 1965 film shot around Salzburg). The occasional Japanese wants to see Hitler's birthplace in Braunau.

"But for the British, it's all about F---ing."

Guesthouse boss Augustina Lindlbauer described the village's breathtaking lakes, forests and vistas.

"Yet still there is this obsession with F---ing," she said.

"Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no F---ing postcards."

Work has been murder, but I doubt I could drop it in favor of a thesis.

That being said, while I would like to finish my M.A., my current course, MA-TPH, is not a thesis course. The catch is that it's also not eligible for a Ph.D., but at the rate I'm going, is that even possible for me? I'm almost living like Batman, with very little sleep available to me...


.:The Final Word... For Now:.

In your world, you've retconned me to be little more than a depressing afterthought you'd rather not even give a second glance to.

I'm the lowest of the low, and I've done you wrong countless times, and the times I've shown you otherwise all mean nothing to you now.

But in my world, I won't retcon your existence into something meaningless to me. I'll forever treasure it. I'll forever regret not having been a better person for you, but I won't let it ruin what I have now.

In my world, you will always be welcome. I will never turn you away.

I'd be a liar if I said you still don't hold a special place in my heart. I won't press the issue any longer. I know that things have changed, and so for now, let it be enough that you know that my door will be open for you.

All you need do is walk in.
