Hey basket, meet all of my eggs!

Although I've tried to keep my whining to a minimum here, for the past six months or so, L. and I have been thinking of little else besides where we're going to be living six months from now. Yesterday, that dilemma was finally solved when she took a great job in Billings, Montana! And we're moving at the end of the month!

In a way it feels like I just took Jay-Z's choice b: “bounce on the devil put the pedal to the floor.” Suddenly things seem to be moving very quickly and there's no doubt that this is a huge gamble. Most sane law graduates get a job and then move; I'm going to be doing it the other way around. It feels crazy, and it probably is, but hey, what's life w/out a little risk? Or a lot?


Of course, first I have to successfully complete law school and suddenly even that seems like a gamble. My final final is tomorrow and I still don't have a clue what I'll be expected to summon from my brain (or my notes, such as they are. I better get crackin'!

Oh, a note to all of our friends and loved ones who have been so supportive during our uncertainty and who had high hopes we'd be moving to the Midwest: We will miss you and hope you will come visit us often in the Big Sky Country! Take the train from Chicago and we'll meet you in West Glacier! We'll certainly try to visit you as often as we can and will most likely be moving east again sometime in the future.

Awesome news re: L!

I'm sure you can find something in Billings - you've got plenty of street cred.

Best of luck on the Final Final. (What is it?)

Fantastic! You'll love it - Montana is gorgeous and wonderful.

That's great! I'm sure you'll find something in Billings. And the PDs office is crazy if they don't hire you! My folks are in Billings--I'd move back too for the right job.

Fan-friggin-tastic! Hugest congrats... and knock 'em dead on the final final.

Job-wise, I have no doubt you'll be able to find something good soon. But the big question is -- will you continue to blog? I hope so!

Maybe a coffee apres finals but before you leave? Lemme know if you have the time...

Best wishes for success in Montana. I was stopped by a cattle drive there in 1977; a whole herd of Herefords crossing the highway. They stopped for awhile and I rolled down my window. One stuck its head in the car and gave me a slobbery kiss. I took its picture--a highlight of my trip out West that year.

Rad! Kewl! ROckage! And all sorts of other exclamations of joy long since dropped into the dustbin of popular history. I'm a really up with the times kinda guy, don't cha know. That's really great for L. And for you. I hope to god you find something out there cause I gotta tell yah, it's a shitty market no matter what the papers say. And anyway, Montana needs a guy like you with little things like this in its history.

I remember as well things moving like a train speeding downhill when we got ready to move to St. Louis. Course, J. was pregnant which is a whole 'nother world of weirdness. Anyway, D.C., Montana, no matter where you go, I'll lurk back in the RSS feeds. Maybe if L. gets a desire for it, you guys can hold a poker night at yer new digs and we can get the band back together.

Awesome! Here's to adventure!

I'm sure you're feeling as awesome as I was when I finally decided to move to Alaska. :)

Outstanding! I've never been to Montana, but hey, what's life without adventure?

Posted by: Beanie at May 4, 2006 03:23 PM

My stars. Congrats to L! (And you.) I'll admit I never quite pictured "L" and "Billings, Montana" in the same sentence (hee), but it'll be a great adventure for you guys. From Naptown here, Montana sounds delightfully exotic.

As for visitin', I'd love to take the train from Chicago, but I'd have to drive for four hours first to get to the darn train. The Indy-Chicago train is rumored to be so slow--I think it's pulled by mules.

Oh my god. That's great and scary all at once. But my question is this: Why aren't you phoning your oldest friend (OK, maybe not oldest, but close) to tell her all about it?

*hint: that's me.*
