Out of the Blue

Well look at that, it's June 1st already! This means E3 is next week, and summer starts in just a few weeks. It also means today is the deadline for MrsBlue to tell her work whether we are accepting their offer to relocate to the west coast. We vacillated wildly on making this decision, but at this point have decided we will decline, and continue to inflict our presence on the east coast. It's conceivable that they will go all Don Corleone on us and make her an offer she cannot refuse, but barring that we plan on staying put.

California seems like it'd be more fun to visit than live in.
The thing I like about living in California is there is all types of country here: rural, forests, mountains, deserts, busy metropolitan areas, tiny secluded hamlets. So if I want a change of pace it's never too long a drive away. Southern California, I love to visit it and always have a blast when I'm there (I adopt my naughty "vacation persona") but wow, I could not imagine anything worse than living there.

So excited for you Blue that you get to stay in your lifelong home. But I imagine now that's almost as scary as moving would have been - unless they make that Don Corleone offer or they manage to find a place for MrsBlue in NY.

And being a native Californian, I totally miss a few hours drive to the desert, or mountains, or snow, or whatever ya wanted. No snow, low humidity, I miss it.
Could I afford to live in California now some 20 years later? HELL NO.

And on a separate note I once again took the plunge and ordered Guild Wars 2 (Digital Deluxe Edition not the Collectors like GW 1), and have been trying to avoid all info and somewhat enjoy it when it launches/beta.
Anything I need to know about Beta weekends/etc?
