An Alternative Spiritual Gathering for Gay&Bi Men
I haven't posted in a very long time. Well, I'll give a quick rundown. 2008 was a fucking awful year. The store managed to still break even, but it doesn't pay enough for Diana (my biz partner) and I to really pay ourselves much of anything. We have been living of of Ed's income for the last few years. Ed's business went tits up (financial planner), and he didn't react to it well. He basically played World of Warcraft 12 hours a day every day till we went through our savings. I had to get a night job as a security guard. Ed at the beginning of this year started working as a cable installer. I fell into a doozy of a depression. I didn't see a way out until the election last fall. I joked that if Obama didn't win and Prop 8 passed, I would move out of the country to Canada or something. Someone said it's too bad Ed or I didn't have any relatives who lived oversees. I though, Ed does. Then I remembered, Ed was actually born in England. He is still a U.K. citizen. Moving to England could be an option. We were both basically starting over, so why should we start over here. I did some checking. In addition to free health care, the wages are around the same, and even the crap jobs there start out at 4 weeks paid vacation a year! I'm sick of hot and dry weather 9 months out of the year, and I would love to live somewhere rainy. 95% of the music I like is British. I have doubts about the future here (economy, water wars, etc...) so we have decided to do it. In mid to late summer, we are expatriating! I'll try to post during the process, and I want to blog about the experience of being an immigrant. (the blog will be called "Ex-Patriot Games") Wish us luck!
