I'm still here (207.0)

A couple of nights in a row of several beers at the Royal Palm before it closed for good helped put back a couple of the pounds I lost last week. I had a February low (I think) of 204.2. The Palms was never really my bar as a student, but I'd certainly been there a few times, and wandered in once in a while over the years to meet friends who'd picked the place for a rendezvous. Still, I don't think I'm exaggerating to say I was in there more in the last month than in the entire previous decade.

One of the people I got to chat with on Tuesday night is actually a very good contact, and I asked him if I could use him as a reference for a job I'm applying for. He's perfect, in context. More on that later, most likely.

I finally applied for unemployment yesterday. I probably should have earlier, though the severance from my job will keep my mortgage and car payments and grocery bills covered for a little while longer.

This is probably the first time I've ever gone two weeks between LiveJournal postings. Sorry. :-)
