One fork, one chair, no table

I have found myself an apartment, which comes as an immense relief to myself, and also to Jon & Amy, who have gone far beyond the call of hospitality in letting me spend the last month in their guest room. I do want to say that they were fabulous hosts, and I'm very grateful to them for putting up with me.

Anyway, I signed a lease yesterday morning, and spent the rest of the day shuttling just enough stuff into the place to let me camp out for the rest of the week. I hope to move the rest from storage to the apartment this weekend -- is anybody available?

The apartment is a large one-bedroom, the second floor of a newer house, just over the line into Medford. I'm on St Clements Road, which is a grandiose name for a street only a block long, near the corner of Harvard Ave and Boston Ave -- so about a fifteen minute walk from Davis. The Medford thing turns out to be more significant than I had at first assumed -- for one, RCN doesn't serve it, so I have to figure out what to do about my internet connection. Does anybody know if I have any cable option other than Comcast? I can't seem to figure out where to look to find the answer. You'd think "What cable providers serve Medford, MA?" would be a straighforward question.

Does anybody have any experience with them? Should I be wary? Well, I am wary, but have no good reason for it.

Also, apparently the Medford address will mean lower car insurance rates, except that I don't have a car. Maybe I'll have to get one, now that I have a place to park it.

I'm not even going to try to reread this pile of ramblings. I need sleep. If it made any sense, then bonus.


Yay for new apartment! Having recently moved to Medford, I will say that you don't have any cable option other than Comcast. (I was disappointed too, but I don't have any complaints with service.)

I can help with moving stuff. Email me to provide details.
