The Good Life

Yesterday, Celanie, Brad, Becca, and I went to People's in East Liberty for Indian food. It was my second visit to the establishment, and it was every bit as good as the first time I went. We had potatoes and peas, black eyed peas, okra, nan, and some appetizers, and the carnivores also ate some chicken.

We decided to eat there because we were in the neighborhood scoping out apartment. Now that Brad has landed a job, we can execute our plan to get a house far away from the hellholes in which we currently live. The house we looked at was great, having been recently remodeled by the architect that owns the place. It's decked out with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a lot of sunlight, as well as pretty new appliances.

The place has a couple of drawbacks, the least of which is not the $1,300/mnmonth price tag, which is more like $1500-$1700 a month depending on the season, since we have to pay utilities for 1,700 square feet of high ceilings enclosed by huge windows and plaster on brick. Other problems included the place being equipped with an electric stove (which makes it a lot more time-consuming to make 20 quarts of sauce), only 1.5 bathrooms, and it's lack of proximity to Becca's and Eric's work.

If we can get the guy down to $1,000-$1,1000 or work out a deal wherein he pays utilities, it'll look a lot better. But the search continues, and now, so does work...
