"Burns: How many of you are familiar with the concept of a "tontine"?
[all stare at him, until Ox raises his hand]
Burns: All right, Ox. Why don't you take us through it?
Ox: Duh, essentially, we all enter into a contract whereby the last
surviving participant becomes the sole possessor of all them
purty pictures.
Burns: Well put, Oxford. "

Even though it's raining intermittent buckets here, I did find an apartment and will be able to move this weekend. I got lucky, since I walked Sam over to this complex so they could give him the onceover, and he was far more endearing than I could ever hope to be. Things are almost moving forward, and if I can get internet back, new posts will return next week...(highlights post for easy deletion if things go south)

Ah, the joy of moving furniture in the rain. I feel your pain. My Father-in-law just sold his condo in New Haven, so we have till the end of the month to clean it out, which is doubly interesting as he's in Arizona.

Need any furniture?

Good luck with your new apartment. I hate moving furniture and stuff, but finally you did find one.

Oh, and the "Oportunity" thing is plain fun :)
