The sucky part was having to leave; we've come to the conclusion that at some point, we want to go to Toronto and not come back. We'll have to see how things work out with employment and with Canadian immigration.
No joy on hooking up with schillerium, either, but we'll be back next weekend for WorldCon and the Ex and other related stuff. And, hey, if we wind up actually living there, there'll be plenty of time. Even if we don't, ferry service starts in the spring, which will most likely make us extremely frequent visitors.
