So yeah I think we found the place. Janelle Monae on the radio singing "Take me back to Wondaland, gotta go back to Wondaland" as we looped through beautiful green hilly streets put me in a good mood. The place three full bathrooms, lovely living room... and the lowest price in our list. Yard's a lot more exposed than I'd like but the insides look great.

Now to go back to fuckin' Boston and pack for the rest of the month.

This was also after a lovely morning spent bumming around Pike Place Market and the U District with Nick in a delightfully dreamy state. I am SO looking forwards to ditching Boston for Seattle. ♥

Also this has so not been scary rain! Just a little drizzle, ain't no biggie for someone who grew up in New Orleans.

Thank you!

Having grown up east of the Rockies (San Antonio, in my case), I've been trying to 5 years to explain to Portlanders that this rain is not bad. Inches per day do not scare those who have experienced inches per hour.

Sometimes I think they're trying to scare people away! Though natives just don't know what rain is; there was the time I was around Spümcø on a drizzly day and all the California natives were wishing they had umbrellas; I just laughed and went out without any worries.

I used to be a Californian, but I've been in Portland for about 6 years now and gotten used to the rain. Now that I'm up in Washington (moving into same house as mentioned above), I've been wandering around in the rain without a jacket or anything! :-P

This is great news. I hope to get myself out to the Pac NW in a year or two, so hopefully I'll see you all there.

Wow, I don't think I've ever even been in a house with three full bathrooms.

It will be excretiontastic! We will never be more than a hundred feet from a toilet or a bathtub!

You'll begin to feel like you're going to burst when you go out for an hour, so accustom to sanitary facilities will you be that your bladders will shrivel and become vestigial.

Excretiontastic...?

Were I on the right coast, I might politely decline any invitations to a housewarming party. Or at least skip the portion of the itinerary devoted to stress testing.

What if three people need to vomit at the same time? Can people use the MICTURITIONADE and the FECALTERIA for vomiting?

They might have to be pretty careful to hold it in on their way to the fecalteria, it's through a walk-in closet in the master bedroom.

OK, that's it, you two are SERIOUSLY not allowed to play with each other anymore! *grins and tugs on Peggy's leash*

But...but...I already got the doorplates engraved!

But before you get it decorated. Then we can compliment you on your choices.

Hooray!! Good luck with the cross-country move... and you'll have to let me know when the housewarming party is. ;D

Probably sometime mid-July; we still don't have schedules nailed down!
