And in other political news, we found an apartment. If you recall, Senate Democrats were threatening to block us from renting it, but we worked out a compromise that's amenable to all concerned. The new apartment has two bedrooms, a back yard and a full kitchen. This will mark the first time since leaving home that I'll have a yard, which the dog would be thrilled about if she understood English, and the second time post-marriage that I'll have a real kitchen. Two words: Par. Tay.
DISCLAIMER: In response to a recent email, let me stress that I am not getting engaged or married. Also, I forgot to mention that the apartment is around the corner from a great Indian restaurant and comes with a newly minted litter of stray kittens.
