It is a beautiful sunny day in Puget Sound. After three and a half years of work in Chicago, I have finally returned to the place where I belong. It's not official yet, but I'm taking the ferry across the sound to look for a new place to rent, so hopefully by the end of the week I will have begun the moving process in earnest.
Ironically enough I stayed at the Green Tortoise again last night. It was so handy having a cheap, familiar bunk to crash in after a long travel day. They finally retired the old G4 iMac in the lobby and rearranged some of the furniture, but other than that it was like stepping back in time.
My friend and colleague in my intended new town is giving me a hand, and I can telecommute from anywhere with decent wireline internet, or even anywhere with an uncrowded LTE tower in a pinch. This is so much nicer and smoother than my last attempt to move out here.
