Aaaah, a beautiful, gray Monday morning. It’s now day six of being back in the blue dot in a red state called Austin, Texas. It’s great to be back, but I must admit I’m dealing with a little bit of PPS. File it in the Mark Phillip glossary near CWO ’cause I’ve found it to be a symptom of PPS, and close to its scary cousin PPD: post-pardum depression. That’s right folks. I have a nasty case of Post-Paradise Stress.

I am quickly learning about the annoying trifecta that is looking for a place to stay, looking for a job, and shopping for a car.

How do I get a place without a job?
How do I get to the job without a car?
How do I get a car without a mailing address?
How do I get a job without a mailing address?
How do I search for a place without a car?
How do I get a car without a job?

It is circular and quite maddening. Much like rock/paper/scissors, except (as anyone intelligent knows), nothing beats rock.

Anyhoo, as I deal with solving the conundrum of the car/job/home trifecta, and as to ensure this blog won’t go the way of my bank account the past few months (it’s funny cause it’s true…), I’m instituting a new gimmick: Guest Blogger.

If you’re clever, you already know who it is.

  7. hey, that’s the same problem I had a couple of months ago. Except I also had no PHONE.
    I had a breakdown, actually. but it was also due to hormones, so consider yourself lucky.
    I have faith, Mark…. you gots more skills than I do, and I found a job.
