Oh, Austin. You get points for nice pink smoke rings and good choices of meat, but if it doesn't have spice rubs or sauce, it's not BBQ. Sniff. I miss you, KC.

How is it already 3:30 in the afternoon? Oh, research rabbit hole. You sucked me in again.

This is why I need to own my own house some day.

We were going to do this to our server rack.

I have power! Naturally, my home electricity is finally restored just in time for a road trip.

Since Thursday I've inexplicably lost air conditioning, television reception and the internet. Look, St. Louis, I'm leaving already. No need to push me out the door. It's gorgeous outside. Can I please pack in temperatures under 90 degrees inside?

I finally made it to bed before midnight, but thanks to #RobertCharlesWilson, I've spent the last two hours under the delusion that I'll go to sleep after one more chapter.

I like those sort of stories. Which book?

Look outside, Austin. After a summer drought this is the 4th rain I've brought you in 4 weeks. You're welcome. Now where are my offerings?

I used to live in Austin and have tons of friends and family there. Let me know if you need any assistance at all.

Young, tweed clad man claims he traveled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world. ...Doctor?

For the next 2 weeks, I get to drive to a rural post office to pick up my mail. They're not delivering any more here until the mailboxes are replaced, since the entire apartment complex's mail was looted over the holiday weekend. For once, I hope my paycheck was running late.

We went from a rural mailbox to a superbox. While we first thought this would be an inconvenience, it turns out that our mail is much more protected and secure. I hope you get all your mail and that your paycheck has not been stolen.

I'm finally starting to get more excited than intimidated by my move. I've crafted a list of 6 apartment complexes to visit in my budget plus one day set aside to let an apartment realtor show me his wares. I hit the road tomorrow. The goal is to have a lease signed by Wednesday. Then I head back to St. Louis for one final week of packing before I move to Austin.

A power outage? Oh, St. Louis. You already broke my a/c and disconnected my cable. What other prezzies do you have for my last 4 weeks here?

Peter, I'm packing a truck on Halloween (since my keys are due November 1) and moving from St. Louis to Austin. I can't wait!
