Living in the city is still great - taking the train in the morning I now see a stram of people walking to the station rather than one every 15-20 seconds as was the case in Evanston (and the trains come frequently enough that I don't need to remember the schedule). And there's other good stuff - as it's a neighborhood neither of us have lived in before there are great shops and restaurants we've never tried. But the temporary living arrangements mean:
1) no cable so no usable TV signal hence no Law and Order fix
2) no home phone service and as we won't sign a contract no additional minutes from Cingular so reduced phone calls
3) no home internet
Then on Sunday, the adorably cute Apple iBook stopped charging. We took it to the Apple store and the genius bar confirmed that it wasn't charging and the problem wasn't the power cord. So it has returned to California and we are now without a computer as well. So there will be no new pictures until the weekend at least and I am suffering withdrawal symptoms from all the loss of technology. The good news for domestic relations is that I am doing more cleaning and dishwashing and garbage removal, and the good news for my brain is that I am making progress with my reading pile.
And I have accepted a job, but I need to get my work permit before it's official. But I am taking a day off work next week to fly to Montreal so you can all figure out where we are going...
