Alright, folks. The other couple has dropped out of contention. We've taken the next step and coughed over the money for a deposit and credit check. The email from our leasing agent said something like, "Bring the check by today and we can have you approved by Friday." That sounds encouraging, right? Yeah?
I looked up some more information about the neighborhood we'll be moving into. It's been described as "upscale bohemian," "eclectic, cafe-society sort of place," "an intellectual, artistic aesthetic sets the tone," "funky, semi-industrial landscape," "where you can still buy art from the maker." In the words of Annie Hall herself (beautiful Annie Hall): "Well, lah de dah. Lah de dah."
