    Re-intro to The Michele Zone

    Origin of the name:
    I thought about using it on some email list and having the footer "The Michele Zone: Something like The Twilight Zone on laughing gas". Then I joined this forum on shorter notice than I planned because I really wanted to participate in a thread and I needed a planner-ish sounding handle real fast. So I used Michele Zone. Michele is my actual name. Zone is not.

    I haven't posted much of late (like a couple of years maybe). I have been working full time and overtime, adjusting to life without a car, and getting well when doctor's say that can't be done. I will soon move to a day job, which is all part of my diabolical plot to take over the world! ("Pinky and The Brain" tm) Or maybe it's just a plot to achieve my lifelong dream of having a "normal" life. Yeah, that might be it.

    I have a rusty, dusty Certificate in GIS, I'm a few classes short of a Bachelor's in Environmental Resource Management with a concentration in Land Use Planning and Policy and I have some entry level job totally unrelated to the planning field. Are my dreams of doing something related to urban planning dead? Perhaps. Or maybe they are just sleeping. Time will tell.

    I would bore you to tears at length but I have to get showered and all that. Perhaps I will find the time and energy to participate here a little more often than every few months now that I am well enough to move to a day job. Or maybe the move itself will be some new crisis and I will go back to sleeping 12 hours a day and you will think I dropped off the face of the planet again.

    Later. Maybe MUCH later. Or maybe not.

    Welcome back, MZ.
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    Glad to have you back in the fold.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I've mostly been 'gone' all week this week. It's been an eventful week. Today, I get to log in and post a little because my mind is too far gone for me to show up at work: I'm running a fever and it must be pretty bad because earlier today I was all set to regale someone with stories of my sinus surgery when I suddenly remembered I've never had sinus surgery.

    I think I will stick to saying "hello" to people in the Intro threads.
