We have cable at home! No internet yet, whoops. Hopefully that will be fixed today.

M., it turns out, is as much an unpacking machine as she was a packing machine. The house is shaping up a *lot* faster than I expected. Well, except for the ginormous piles of books, but that's pretty much because we don't have the new bookshelves yet. Heh.

New complex is *very* responsive about getting things fixed, from problems with the A/C to cracked blinds. I have to admit, I'm impressed.

Oh, but cable. We have digital cable again, and OnDemand, which make me happy. And this time around, we have BBC America and the "favorite channels" feature (which we didn't have in Laurel.) Good times.

Bebe was very cute yesterday. For some reason she decided she wanted to show me The Little Mermaid, and once she put it on, she was explaining everything to me while she was curled up on top of me.

Tonight, cleaning out and cleaning up the old apartment. Tomorrow afternoon, the walk-through and turning over the old keys.

Good luck to my AOL posse today. Oh, and happy belated to elizardaa, disoculated, and hugeboozehound.

Is there actually nothing going on this weekend? That can't seem right, but gcal never lies...

More later, work permitting.

Commute report:
Left the house at 5:35, drove up to the Twinbrook Metro. Not the closest to my house, but literally *next to* bebe's day care. Got there at 6. Had an 8 minute wait at Metro Center, and got to work... right on time. Ting! Tomorrow's experiment: Glenmont, which I more or less passed on the drive today, but is oddly on the opposite end of the Red Line.

How long does it take you to get to work?

From Baltimore, it took me just over an hour and a half in the morning.

Still working out the new commute, but I think I'll shave about twenty minutes off that. Depends on which Metro stop ends up most convenient.

The afternoons are harder to judge (I hang with my bebe after work most days) but I've shaved a *lot* off that time, 40 minutes minimum. And being closer, we're also looking to have her over at our place one more day a week. Fingers crossed.

Wow, quite the commute. Looks like you are working on it though! Three cheers for perhaps getting bebe another day a week :D

Heroclix is going on this weekend...

It's one of the considerations, though I'd have to negotiate with the little woman. Time to go check out how enticing the second game looks.

(I am considering Savage Mill next Thursday, FYI.)

If you call me your "little woman" again, I'll show you what it feels like to be one.

We don't have any plans for the weekend (except that I'm going to games night on Friday) so, have at it.

Oh, and we have internets again. *waves*

Tee hee hee.

I haven't yet announced it, but Games Night is on for Friday.
PMMJ: Quad Damagecheetahmaster on September 27th, 2006 03:00 pm (UTC)
M. had asked about that just last night. :}
maia: Bondage Bearmaroonmd on September 27th, 2006 03:41 pm (UTC)
YAY! I'll be there! :-)

There is the VA Wine Festival on Sunday, followed by Snog at the Rock and Roll Hotel!

Sunday est bebe day. I suppose I meant Friday/Saturday.

(See above for notes on Game Night Friday.)

The Wine Festival is full of fun for the whole family and it's supposed to be a gorgeous day... ::tempts::
