C. and I just signed a rental lease for an apartment in Oakland. We're so excited! It's a beautiful 1920's two bedroom unit with a huge kitchen, a few blocks away from Lake Merritt and just a stone's throw away from all kinds of cool things: the newly renovated Fox Theater, Chinatown, a pub that serves Trappist Belgian beers on tap, a diner that serves (among other delicacies) vegan pulled pork and milkshakes made with fresh blueberries, and yes. We're fairly pleased.
Anyway, that's way I've been kind of absent lately, and why I'll continue to be absent for a while longer.
