New neighbor?

Michael Jackson has settled his Neverland Ranch issues for the moment, as I told you a couple of days ago.

So here’s the latest on his living arrangements. According to sources, Jackson is moving to upstate New York.

Specifically, I am told that Jackson has either bought a home or one has been purchased for him in or around Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Started writing to a friend, and realized I was only writing to vent/process minor annoyances

Current mood: drained

I”m still debating whether or not I’m going to this party Sat. It’s a big house party celebrating the end of the year with all Vassar folks — which will either be very fun and an opportunity for new friends, or a complete disaster with drunk professors bitching to me about their websites. But I think it’ll be the happier crowd.

Now, if my brother were in town it would be cool to make an appearance then go off and hang out together. I just sent him a note to see if he could come, or if not if I could go see him this weekend — looking at the calendar it’ll be until July before I’ll get another chance and that’s just entirely too long. My last visit with him — a year ago — also feels like one of the last “before my world fell apart” moments — not that dramatic, but you know what I mean. I need to bring him into the present. He wanted to visit last summer but I told him to stay away. Looking back on it I can’t believe I did that — I had forgotten actually.

Anyway, I am sooooooo looking forward to going to Charlotte for 2 weeks in June. Had dinner with the folks Sunday and my father asked if I had ever heard of the Penguin — he had seen it on “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” Yup.

Fried Pickles!
