This day has been more exciting than I can handle.

First of all, I found out more about the Master of Arts in Humanities program at my school. It looks fabulous, and I got even better news when speaking with an admissions counselor. This fall, they are adding a brand-new track to the MA in Humanities: a creative writing emphasis. Hell yes. I filled out my application on the spot. Now I just have to get my letters of recommendation, personal statement, transcripts, and creative writing portfolio together. It’s looking really good, folks.

In email, Victor informed me that he finished my ‘BlogTone, which I think is just the cutest little groove! Go listen; it’s a Flash hoomiejobbie in the sidebar on quill’s index page.

After work, I picked up my laundry — which I had dropped off at the cleaners on Monday because I am lazy, yet wanted clean clothes for my trip this weekend — and came home to a phone call from my landlady. It seems she might be selling the house before my lease is up at the end of August. So I let her know that I was intending to move into the City anyway, and sooner is better than later, as long as there are no problems between us with the terms of the lease. She said there wouldn’t be any problems at all. So … I’m officially looking for an apartment in the City, with a target move-in of 1 June. If you know of one, my requirements are: one cat permitted, parking, laundry on-site, and DSL. (I’m never going to find a place, am I? Time to scour Craig’s List.)

Then I went to get my hair cut and brows waxed, and my NP called to tell me that some further culture testing showed I have developed a resistance to the antibiotics I’ve been on. Now I have to run to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription of Cipro, then come home and pack like a fiend, and maybe, just maybe make it out to see a friend play at Sweetwater.

Or maybe I’ll just come home and eat a can of tuna with wasabi peas and call it a night.

    Please live in my apartment. I’m leaving in June and it will be so lonely. It’s not part of my lease to find a new leasee, I’m just very sad that such a cute and very, very cheap apartment is going to be lost to the world. The owners never advertise and rely on word of mouth to rent – this building is old and cozy and full of people who have lived here for forever and ever. They even decorate the stairwell with weird stuffed animals and put out candy dishes. It’s so poetic and bizarre.

    I have no idea if there is a spot available in the parking garage, but there may be. Cat? I’ve heard one mewing somewhere in the building, so probably. DSL? I have a weird sort of cable coming out of the wall close to my phone cord, and Doug said it was something vital. No laundry. No laundry. No laundry. But the best laudromat I’ve ever used (out of 4 possible competitors) is 2 short blocks away and has a low crazy-people quotient.

    The place is:
    – 5 blocks from Golden Gate Park
    – 2 blocks from the best Burmese food in SF
    – $750/month
    – month to month lease (although people seem to stay here for forever)
    – spacious for a studio (walk in closet, hall closet, room in the kitchen for a kitchen table or large computer desk + bookshelves)
    – very cute, bathroom has adorable 40’s style pink and grey tiles and a very deep bathtub

    Maybe not exactly what you are looking for… I’m sure a lot would depend on the parking issue.

    Did I mention you have to meet the owner, a nice old Chinese lady, who judges your character to see if you would fit in here? Louise (the manager) marvels that she has never been “wrong” about someone. God I love this building.


  2. OMG.

    the blogtone guy captured you. or … at least the ms.xcitement part of you.
