No Stinky Basement Suite, Hooray!

Well, for anyone who was wondering, Paul and Hunter and I found a place to live. We are moving next door-- our wonderful neighbour, who is traveling to Australia and other places for four months, is renting us his house and we're taking care of his cat. Oooohh.... Hunter.... and Jake...... do not get along very well. Yet. And I know Hunter is going to think we are playing some sort of lame and stupid trick on him when he tries to go "home" after a night out carousing with his other bad-ass kitty friends, only to see us on the other porch 20 feet away, beckoning to him with a bowl of tuna, calling to him from THE WRONG HOUSE!

It is actually THE EXACT SAME HOUSE, or at least it would have been when they were both built back in 1918 or so. But our nieghbour's house has been renovated inside, has a washer and dryer, has a claw foot tub and hasn't had its basement turned into an illegal suite. Also it has a new garage, and also our neighbour's television is really nice. So it is better. We are moving on up in the world! We'll be there until August 15th.

I am going a little crazy with the timing of events right now... Trying to keep ahead of everything that needs doing before we, oh, what? Take a holiday to Cuba? Yes, right in the middle of moving house, editing Booty, applying for a grant, and organizing what I fondly like to refer to as the "Vacheville" colloquium. Feeling a bit overwhelmed... Cuba is going to be surreal I think, in the state my mind is in right now. Give me a mojito! Let's go swimming! To Havana! Where is my cigarillo? All at once. At least Cuba is one of those places where it is truly difficult to stay connected to the interwebular autobahn, if you know what I mean. So everything that I leave undone or partially done in Calgary will have to wait. It simply will have to!

Can't wait for Cuba to spend time with Chris and Sandy, then for Vacheville when we get back-- looking forward to seeing Angela and Oana again when they arrive from Mount Royal. I mean Montréal.
