In roughly reverse order

Last night I had a nice Ethiopian food supper at Lalibela with Blair and Ryan (who had the sense to order Bedele which I'd not had before). My favorite thing about being in a big city is access to food and people of all kinds and cultures.

Just before dinner yesterday I signed off on my Toronto lease and payed my first and last and all that… So now I have a nice big four bedroom house a few blocks up Dundas West from Bloor on a quiet little side-street. It's got indoor parking, a nice finished basement, and a big open concept kitching-dining-living room. I have to head over in the next day or two to our storage space and take inventory of what I have and what I don't, get cable ordered, and so on.

As a point of trivia, my agent also had paperwork from another house… on Larratt Lane (and it's not a common name). I had no idea there was a street with that name here. Unfortunately the car was too dark at the time to take a clear picture.

The agent is actually also Saira's mother. So if you're looking for a place (to buy, not to rent) in Toronto, write Saira. And here's Saira's dog Milo (no relation), who keeps Phil company during the day:

Finally, thanks to the wishlist elf who sent me Mark's latest book The World's Worst. It's a quick and fun read that I got through cover-to-cover on yesterday's TTC rides.

Anyway, I think I'm doing some contingency programming today among other things.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
