I've been in Jacksonville this weekend, looking for a place to live during the academic year. I found a cute little efficiency, furnished no less, in Jacksonville Beach. It's about 12 blocks (12 blocks!) from the ocean and the landlords are exceptionally nice. I can't move in for a couple of weeks which is ok because I'm going up to school today and then back to NC. Our stuff still isn't here from CA yet, though we hope tomorrow or the next day and then the gargantuan task of unpacking begins.

This weekend most of my known world was at comicon and I am looking forward to hearing all the updates and vicariously living through those lucky folks who were there. Special shout out to [ profile] melodymuse and [ profile] markcronan for text messages that kept a smile on my face all weekend!

There's not tons of public art in Jax but there is some and I thought she was especially wonderful.

I promise more pix of everything soon, I need to find the cable for my camera. But I know I'll find it. Eventually.

The efficiency sounds neat. Good landlords are worth their weight in naquada.

Mmmm, pretty, funky kitty.

Good luck with the unnpacking.

They did seem like genuinely kind people and that pretty much sealed the deal for me. That, and it was the nicest place I saw the entire trip.

Thanks for your hugs and good wishes.

Glad to hear you're finding things you can like, though I have no recommendations (and in fact no defense) for the humidity. I think the theory there is that it won't kill you and you'll eventually acclimate.

The cat art reminds me of those angels that were installed all over L.A. for a while, each with a different paint job and all of them incredibly surreal. I've always assumed that was meant as art, but if it was an alien landing, how would we know?

I don't mind humidity so much, though this was pretty oppressive. Made me appreciate how dry NC really is.

I remember those angels. At first I thought they were some very strange religious message rather than art. And I agree, if they were aliens, we probably wouldn't even blink.
