Moving Progress Update 1

Well it's been about a week and a half since we got moved into the new place. Things are getting settled and starting to feel a bit more like home. All of the rooms are pretty much settled with the exception of the basement living room and the office.

The office, where I spend the majority of my time since I work from home, is pretty functional at the moment. Next month when I have a bit more money, I need to go out and pick up a bit bigger desk. At the moment I've stolen Elizabeth's desk and have been using that which has forced her to use a table to set her computer up on. The room is really big so it can definitely accommodate two desks.

The basement living room currently has a few pieces of furniture in it but it isn't really set up. I think the cornerstone of that room will be the kegerator (which is still in Ames) and the bar I'm going to fashion when I get a few free hours. The kegerator should be coming up in the next two weeks, at which point I'll have to really set up my "man lair" down there.

I've been trying to remember to update my contact info everywhere, but if I haven't already sent you the updated info, here it is:
2617 Inglewood Ave S
St. Louis Park, MN 55416

Other than that, Elizabeth and I have been cooking quite a bit. She's been off this week so we've been taking turns making lunch. Last night we went to a restaurant down the street called Tryg's for our 'date night'. I had some oak grilled salmon and Elizabeth had a shrimp, pineapple, and goat cheese flat bread. Mine was pretty tasty but Elizabeth said she's had better flatbread. It was a bit on the spendy side, and since the food wasn't out of this world, we'll likely try a few more places before we go back there. Tonight I'm going to grill some gorgonzola burgers from Whole Foods (our trip to Whole Foods is worth another blog entry).

Finally, my interview on the Java Posse came out this week. Feedback has been good so far. I was a little worried that it wouldn't go over well since it was light on Java but people found it interesting.
