Got one

At least I think so - it's right behind the Wedge, on Harriet (EDIT: and when I say Harriet, I clearly mean Garfield) between Franklin and 22nd. Cool brownstone building, 1BR (as opposed to a studio, which had the potential of making me and Phyllis cramped and depressed), I probably overpaid for it, but I'm glad it's done. And I'm actually happy about the place too, I really do like it. It felt a little weird relying on myself solely for guidance on this - I'm so used to doing this with other people! Gave them security deposit plus application fee (which, in hindsight, was probably naive, but it's *so* close to the end of the month I thought I'd do it), and will be signing the lease tomorrow or the next day.

The place is pretty cool and fits me well (I hope) - it's larger than I really need, but has some interesting architecture and lots of little "alleys" for pacing. I always pace when I think - don't really know why.

I did look at several other places before deciding on this one, so I feel good about that. Places for less money were too tiny, and the other places for equal money were in worse shape or had other flaws.

I've also gotta start a shopping list - so MN folks who are looking to get rid of stuff (couches, chairs, tables, kitchen stuff, or anything really) should let me know. I'm actually pretty pumped about having a place that "all mine". I can finally buy another bookshelf, display all my own art, and run my own show, I guess. The apartment is all cleared out right now, and they said I can move in early, which is HUGE because I hate the B.S. "must be out by the 31st, and must wait until the 1st to move in" stuff. I mean seriously - WTF are people supposed to do? There ought to be a law...

I think that's where Peebs lives... you better check on it; I don't know how he's gonna feel w/ you steppin' in on his spot. As for appliances you need, aren't you glad you already have a Bullet? Someone who really loves you must have given you that. Enjoy your move, sweet thang!

If you're feeling short on cash I've got a X instead of that Y, X is very fun and has worked out well in the past.

Oh, and congrats on the new place, hope it suits you well, but that's a long walk to the CC.

(am I out of the hipness loop?)

Yes, Carson, it is a longer walk to the CC, but no one really goes there anymore. This way, I'll be able to conduct clandestine seduction operations carried out upon unsuspecting Wedge customers. Also, I'm closer to Rudolph's in case I'm craving some dry, overcooked ribs.
