Signed the lease for the flat in the Victorian house in Alameda. I have a HOME! No furniture for a couple weeks, but that's okay. I'm happy about it anyway. Goodbye, motel!

Oh, so I know why there are so many ornate Victorian houses on the island. The 1906 earthquake that destroyed so many of the beautiful houses in San Francisco didn't touch Alameda (in fact, many of the survivors relocated there). Anyway, I look forward to living there--away from the traffic and claustrophobia of the city. I think I dare to put myself in the Everything Mailing Address Registry.

PS! I get to see Starrynight and my SO in about six days. Life is good.
