Whew. [livejournal.com profile] morganlf and I just got back from three days of house/apartment hunting and being tourists in Seattle. The more time I spend there, the more excited I get about moving.

We decided that West Seattle seems most appropriate in terms of price and location, plus we absolutely loved the downtown area along California. We've applied for a smallish (1000 sq ft/2BR) mother-in-law unit that looks like it will be more than big enough for now. We'd ideally like to buy a house in 6-8 months, assuming the market continues to act like it has been.

The big pluses of Seattle for me seem to be: a tangible environmental/green focus, a strong presence of a foodie culture, lots of available outdoor activities, and lots of used book stores. Taken together, these are huge. The downside is going to be two-fold--I will definitely miss the sun, and in terms of friends, we're leaving behind a large and established social base. That's pretty scary, but I am definitely looking forward to reconnecting with folks I've not seen in a long time.

My major annoyance of the weekend: having to watch the BSG premiere streamed over "borrowed" WiFi in our hotel room for scifi.com. The stream kept sputtering.... however, it was still worth it. :) The song that [livejournal.com profile] morganlf wrote/translated the lyrics for seems to be Baltar's new theme music. How cool is that?????
