The New Digs.

As has become customary, I'll start by apologizing for my lack of attention to Tedrow Drive. Much has happened since I last checked in with y'all. I have a meeting with the editor in chief of a major newspaper in the Boston area. I also have another meeting with the author that seems interested in my work. As far as writing goes, everything is chugging along just fine and dandy.

Scientifically, things are moving along fine. There's been some nasty politics swirling about here in the lab. To make a long story short, I was getting dragged into the fray and swiftly recused myself from the situation.

Now for the big news. The really, really big news. We bought our first home!!! Yup, you read that right. Vavoom Q. Citizen is now a homeowner. Our new place is in a fantastic part of Boston, not far from John Kerry's house (I shit you not). We got the place for a fantastic price.

It's interesting, life changes once you have a mortgage. Suddenly I feel "all grown up." We're nervous, but excited to close escrow in the next month or so. For whatever reason, I'm overjoyed with the notion of making simple repairs, redoing the bathrooms and having guests over. It seems like it will be a healthy distraction.

Now it's your turn -- what's your big news? How have you been?
