I never take my MacBook to the bathroom with me, but iPhone beats a toilet-side magazine rack any day.

Thank you, everyone, for affirming that I am not crazy.

My partner always looks at me funny and says something catty when I dig into cold Chinese, Italian, chicken, curry, pizza, or burritos straight from the fridge. It's better that way!

That looks exactly like the nook in my old apartment. Weird.

With the 1.5TB Seagate FreeAgent Desk I could replace my ailing 1TB drive and resume ripping my DVD collection for easy access via Apple TV.

Knife blades down just seems too . . . stabby.

It's a deal breaker for me if there are too many units in the building. I like to have a relationship with my actual landlord and not some no name management company. It makes me feel that if there were ever some sort of financial crisis (god forbid) that I could sweet talk him and make special arrangements. I haven't had the opportunity to test that theory yet though, thank goodness.

Oh, and I can't even give a place a second chance if the hot water heater isn't locked up in a closet or otherwise hidden from view.

They're not fancy schmancy, but I enjoy Pyramid Apricot Weizen Ale and Goose Island India Pale Ale on a hot summer day.

Thanks for the tip, Cheryl! I think this weekend lunch at Hotei and a little shopping for plants will be in order. I'll just hope I don't kill these like I do everything else green.

And spaceagemouse, which building is yours? That new fancy building on the west side of the street puts mine to shame. From my old unit (I used to live on the back of the building, but I recently moved into a unit in the front) I could see the backyard and they had the lushest, prettiest, greenest GRASS. Grass! God, what a status symbol.

It DOES get windy in the Mission--at least on my block. There's always this fierce wind blowing off Bernal Hill down Capp Street between 25th and 26th. It's like a frickin' wind tunnel in the evenings.
