Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States



E is working from home today thanks to the marvels of the web and the speaker feature on his cell phone. But telecommuting really isn't all it's cracked up to be when you have to close all of the windows and doors to shut out the sounds of life and the city during your many phone meetings all day long - apparently, his colleagues on the other end of the line don't particularly appreciate hearing the traffic or the occasional fire truck from the fire station three blocks away. Hmm. Wonder what they'd have thought about getting a taste of the sounds from our former "train apartment," as Mom calls it...

P.S. Glad to know SCW missed my blog, too!
