Smitty Gets A Clu!

Well, the love affair with tent living is over. Actually, it never really started.
This morning I moved into my very own Containerized Living Unit (CLU). It's a lot like living in a U-Stor-It. I have a bed, a desk (with chair!), wooden shelves, two (count them!) lockable cabinets, and a sink with mirror. Plus there's electricity! And I'm only steps away from a shower and toilet, which I have to share with a neighbor (much better than sharing with 100 neighbors).

My clu is on the second floor (of two), which is not at all like living at home but is at least off the ground. I've grown used to altitude and it's nice to have some back, even if only 15 feet of it. From my porch I can actually see… um… some haze in the distance. And hills! There are hills! I have morning sun, too, so I'm going to plant some watermelon seeds in a sandbag and see if they grow.

I'll take a couple pictures soon so you can all see my wonderful new metal home.

Ooooh, if you didn't have an iPod before, you've got an IPOD now!

Ah, that's pretty good. I'll have to use that one.

Now all you need to do is get a meter long piece of rebar to use as a "redneck katana" for a little suburi.

Ooooh, nice reference. Hadn't thought of that at all, but you know... there's plenty of rebar around here. Nobody would miss one piece of it.

FANTASTIC Reference. Now you just need to get you one of them dogs from Diamond Age and you'll be set.
