Hus-huntung

I haven’t be able to post over the past week and a half as I’ve been out of town. The reason for my trip was to look for a place for us to live in Toronto, where we’ll be moving as of August. And the reason we’ll be moving to Toronto is that I’ll be teaching at the University of Toronto at Mississauga in the Department of English and Drama for the year. (I’ll write more soon about my teaching next year.)

As for the house hunting itself, it was a gruelling experience, but finally a successful one. Throughout the process I e-mailed photos of the various places to my wife, who couldn’t be there, and in the end we settled on the final place we looked at. It was only a last minute decision to look for a place in East York (we were originally thinking Etobicoke), but we were quite happy with the place and its proximity to the subway. Here’s a picture:

It’s quite a relief to have that settled. Now we just have to pack all our things…

Those sound like great courses to teach! At least it will be fun. And congrats on finding such a great house.

Me again — just caught your review of the cat jazz mystery — just about exactly what I thought of it, though phrased a little more elegantly. A pleasant Sunday afternoon, not much more.
