Site containing real diary is down and I'm in weblogging withdrawl. Hello.

Insomnia. Inconvenient, but not unexpected. Had I been thinking clearly, I would have had a nap this afternoon to offset the inevitable. Currently sucking back as much coffee as humanly possible, because I soon have to break down the machine and put it in a box.

I'm moving today.

For a while I thought I was going to Nova Scotia. Then for a while I thought I was going to Edmonton. No longer the case. I'm going to Ottawa. Back to ol' Ottawa. This is a Good Thing.

And I'm not even moving for a job. That's a new little twist on things, because since 1992 I've only ever made major moves like this (ie: interprovincial) to either go to school (NS), or to go to new jobs (ON, PQ). No job this time. In fact, I'm currently unemployed, and have been for exactly one month, today.

Note: I am looking for work in the Ottawa area. When my website is back up (at http://www.osdi.org) there will be a resume there for potential employers to peruse at their leisure. If anyone knows of jobs for tech writers, web developers, intranet developers, information architects, and other such information-related stuff in the Ottawa area, feel free to drop me a line at deb@dria.org.

So, the movers will be here in 4-5 hours, then I'm off and away out of Montreal. I didn't much care for Montreal, but don't take my word for it. I have several friends who liked it here rather a lot. I'm just not a big fan of large cities. Ottawa is a nice little city. I like Ottawa.

Mmm...coffee. *slurp*
