update

I'm in my new apartment, have been for a few days. Haven't unpacked all that much yet. Noise problems aren't as bad as I feared, though I haven't slept over on a weekend yet. Previous host had kept asking me to clean up my room to show potential tenants, said when I left that he didn't think I'd be able to clean up my room as much as I had. Wasn't hard, though, stuff folds back into my bags (or this time, got schlepped over in multiple trips), garbage gets thrown out, excess plastic bags get stored or thrown out, voila. I left the dust and grit for him to vacuum, that seemed okay.

anima-mechanique and Z had this neat light-weight folding bookshelf from Pier One. There's a nearby Pier One and I found them there. Something like $180 IIRC, though. Sadface.

I got tension rods, and hung up two of my curtains in my bedroom. I'm surprised, they haven't fallen down yet. Nice and dark. I also got some cheap Redi Shade blinds for the other 6 windows in the apartment, haven't tried them yet.

Got my Harvard Pilgrim insurance brochure, but no card. Well done, people.

Hmm, haven't really *done* much in the past week, mostly reading and some exercise. Lots of Penny and Aggie fandom, which spawned its own IRC channel, and yesterday I was geeking out about comics with a 20 year old who knew the Dreaming ("You liked Echo?" "Yes, kind of") and Lucifer -- in fact, had been on the forums and seen Lucifer Smiley Face Masterpiece Theatre -- and Hellblazer.

Oh! I finished watching Rocket Girls. Silly in many ways, but fun.
Finished off some classical history Wikipedia tabs. Thebes was more important than I'd thought; more like a big Three with Sparta and Athens, not a big Two. Macedonians never conquered Sparta, that took the Romans. It's estimated Spartan women owned 35% of the land.

Alright, set up in your new place! Hope you're enjoying Boston :)

Pardon if I missed it earlier, but are you going to be working in Boston particularly? Software engineering? Something else? ... (or maybe you already started? ...)

I plan to look for software engineering jobs. Odds say Cambridge. My refusal to own a car says Cambridge or Boston

Hmm... now who might that 20-year-old be?... ;-)

SRSLY Seriously though, that was a fun discussion. Possibly because of my youth, I haven't encountered many comic geeks who've read The Dreaming. Lucifer is rather more familiar as a Sandman spinoff.
