Okla-Homa... Where Contagion comes whipping down the plains! UPDATED!

I just received word this morning that my trip to Oklahoma has been confirmed. Right now it's just temporary, nothing perminant. I'll be leaving on July 28th. For those of you that know my schedules... yes, yes that means exactly what you are thinking.

UPDATE: 10:45 AM I just found out that I'm actually going to be leaving on July 20th. It could last as long as until mid October depending on how things go. IE, the better of a job I do, the quicker this could be over with. There was talk again about this turning into a promotional opportunity. All of you know I want out of Rockford in the worst kind of way, but this is NOT what I wanted. I just wanted to move out of the city.

As for my re-enacting... That may be put on hold for a while. You all know how much that pains me. The worst part is that there could be a 3 week period I go with out getting to see the family at all.

Also, I don't own a lap top so blogging may become non-existant. However, if anyone knows were I can get a good/cheap lap top in the next 10 days, let me know.

How much are you willing to spend on the laptop, and how do you expect to connect it to the internet? I can do some digging for you.

Oh, and be sure to practice up on your Oklahomese - terms like "y'all," "fixin' tuh" (ie. "I'm fixin' tuh go down to the store") and "as a crow flies" ("How far to the store?" "About 5 miles as a crow flies.") will come in handy.
And be prepared to have absolute strangers try to chat you up for no apparent reason all the time - happens a lot down there.

Oh, and don't speed on the highways. At all. Especially around Wagonner. $#!@!@$ podunk cops slapped me with two tickets in the same weekend for going like 5 over.

Best of luck with the temporary assignment. Since my husband and I did this for a year - I can say I know it's tough. I hope all works out well in the end.

Man... it's too bad you won't be on this side of the Rockies.

One thing... you'll only be a couple of hours away from Bloodspite. Whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen. :)
