Still No Podcast

Yep. Still no podcast. I'm doing better as far as health goes but I still have a pretty bad throat and it's still not fun to talk. I'll see if I can get one recorded maybe even for tomorrow or something. Or just record one way in advance for next week.

Anyway, something not so great happened to me recently. Jessica, my best friend of the past 13 or so years, has moved to a whole other country. She's living in Spain now and to be honest I'm not too sure when I'll talk to her again. She said it could be a few months until she gets the internet set up and she'll actually be living in a hotel for a while. If we're lucky she'll be in a hotel with wifi. She did send me a random text though too.

She moved in with her new girlfriend a few months back and I hadn't seen her since then actually. Thankfully I got to meet up with her one last time before she moved away that time. It just feels a lot worse because she's a whole other country away now. It's hardly the last time I'm going to see her though. Flights to Spain, form England at least, are pretty dirt cheap. For the price it's going to cost me to go to America I can take about 20 trips to Spain. Though I'd have no spending money. If anything I now actually have a holiday home in Spain. That's how she really wants me to see it anyway. I still ended up crying like a little bitch on Tuesday though. I really don't cry much at all.

Still, as I said, it's hardly the last time I'll see her. I know that she got to Spain safely and she's just waiting for me to come visit. I think I'll have to wait until next summer but it's something. I have a passport which is pretty much everything I need.

This ain't no end, it's a new beginning for her.

Slight edit: I can now confirm that she does have a new place to stay and should be moving in very soon. No idea on when she'll be getting the internet there though.

  2. Second...

    Going without the internet for that long would probably kill me, and one day, honestly, the internets probably will murder me.

  3. It's always sad when our friends move away but as long as we don't lose contact that's what's important. My best friend moved away a few years ago but we still, talk almost every day!

  4. I'm just super jelly that she's in Spain. And that a plane ticket for you to see her is dirt cheap. My family is from Spain, and I've always wanted to visit (looks so beautiful), but tickets from America to Spain... not so cheap.

    And hey, it sucks now, but as long as you stay in contact things should still be fine. The two of us were on different sides of the country at one point, and still talked every other day, collaborated on novels, etc.

  5. I do hope everything goes well for her there and that her new relationship is a good one. As close as you two are though, it has to be difficult not to be in touch every day. Here's hoping she gets internet soon and that you get a nice holiday over the Winter!

  6. Hi Mark...I realized today (thanks to twitter) that I had removed you from my blog list when I cleaned up my blog awhile ago. So here I am again!! I understand how you feel about your friend moving. I shed a lot of tears when I moved away from my best friend many moons ago. But with modern technology it doesn't feel so bad. I hope you get to Spain to see her soon enough. Will be very fun for you I'm sure.

  7. Where in Spain is she going? Hopefully the Balearics. She'll have to watch out for sailors, though. But it's a cool place.
