Yeah, I've been out of touch. And my internet access is going to be flakier than usual for a few days, so I should probably update now...
The flight went...it went. There was a moment of terror at the airport when we had to rearrange the stuff in the bags because one was overweight but we couldn't find the keys. I was freaking out, needless to say. Then Cheryl found the keys and everything went better after that. Even U.S. Customs was alright: they've re-arranged things at the international terminal at LAX so that it's almost bearable now.
Apartment? We got that. We pick up the keys (and move the first batch of our stuff in) tomorrow, and the next batch of stuff in Sunday, and then next batch probably the weekend after that...man, our stuff got scattered everywhere four years ago. We should have phone/internet/cable in the new place on Friday.
Job? Working on it. The interview at Google is Thursday, and I'm continuing to job-hunt when I'm not studying for the Google interview. CS 101 was a looong time ago, I'm realizing. At least the office where I'm interviewing isn't hard to find.
I'm renting so many cars right now. It's definitely time to consider joining the ranks of car owners once again. Ontario is pretty good when it comes to public transit, as long as you never leave the city you start in, or if you only need to go to/from Toronto. (Hamilton to Guelph? 45 minutes by car, three hours by bus, and you have to change buses in Mississauga. Although that apparently gets better during the school year.)
Oh, and horror stories! I now know what it's like to have a tire blow out on highway 400 at 110 km/h. Okay, it wasn't a horror story: I didn't lose control and I was able to pull over without any trouble. Would you believe I'd never changed a tire before? I managed well enough, except that somehow I scratched up my right arm something fierce and didn't even notice until it was pointed out to me.
So yeah, busy few weeks. What's new with you?
