Apartment squee

We're still waiting for HRDC to certify my job so that I can get a work permit, but once they do, it looks like linuxspice and I have housing. Really good housing. It's a big, airy two bedroom with 85% of the space of the main two floors of our house in Rochester, with a balcony and a view of the lake. It's right across the street from the High Park subway stop. It's in a complex with a fitness club, three swimming pools (one indoor), a dentist's office, and an assortment of shops. And, best of all, it's a five minute walk from my apartment to my new job.

We're thrilled. Now, if the government would only hurry up and finish processing my case....

(Many thanks to epi_lj and okoshun for their warm hospitality!)

I just noticed that you were listening to Sarah Slean. Have you seen her live? She puts on a wonderful live show. clawfoot is a big fan, and took me once.

I've never successfully made it to one of her shows, after having had firm plans to see her the last three (four?) times that she was in Rochester. I love love love her music, and I can't fathom why Atlantic hasn't released Night Bugs in the US yet. *boggle*

Well, you'll be local to her, so it should be easy for you to rectify the missing of shows. :)

It looks like our return visit has fallen through; we'll have to get your keys to you when we're up next, or we can drop them in the post if you need them sooner.

That's fine -- you can get them to us whenever you're next in town. :)
