Twitter!

I've added a Twitter gadget to my blog layout. Looks nice, ya?

Also, I've started using a free service from ping.fm which lets me send status updates to Twitter and Facebook at the same time. I can even write micro-blogs (which apparently is defined as a blog entry with 140 or less characters) to Twitter and Blogger via ping.fm.

To top it all off, I've added a ping.fm Google gadget to my iGoogle homepage, so I can update my status without ever needing to visit the ping.fm website.

Technology, ain't it grand?

Can't wait to move!

It's just 11 days until our closing date, and I'm friggin amped! The place is really starting to take shape, and now that it's starting to look like a home instead of a construction site, my level of patience is starting to diminish. Lemme in!

All of the upgrades that we selected in the spring are being delivered and installed. We saw the tiles a month ago, and the kitchen cabinets a week ago. We have yet to see our biggest purchases, the kitchen countertop and the hardwood floors, so you know CathyAl is making one more visit next week.

When we went to visit today, they locked all the doors (oh punk), so we were limited to peering through the first floor windows. We saw stain on the stairs (yay!), plus a toilet and sink in the powder room (yay!). One of the basement windows hasn't been installed yet, and I was thinking of slithering in, but it would really suck if I wrecked the insulation before we moved in. I also might have twisted my ankle, which was suprisingly less of a concern.

We've started purchasing stuff for our home, and ordering services (LCD TV + HDTV? Oh my!). Our move comes in time for Raptors basketball, which is great because I don't think I can stand anymore of this standard definition bullshit.

How many more days until we move again? Gatdamn!
