It blows up my blog layout a bit, but interesting enough to put in.

Last night I slept in my new condo for the first time, on my Aerobed no
less since my real bed is taken apart and still at the apartment.
As an aside, I've slept on a lot worse beds than that Aerobed, it was
actually fairly comfortable. Anyway, that meant this morning was
the first time to shower in my new place and it was awesome. Now
you have to understand, my current apartment is a vintage building that
still has a bunch of old plumbing. The water pressure, hot water
especially, is practically non-existent. Now I'm a person who
likes a hot shower and a lot of water pressure. My new condo has
one of those waterfall shower heads and plenty of hot water with great
pressure. I know it seems like a small (silly) thing, but
sometimes that's all it takes to put a smile on your face in the

Yes, it's official. I closed on my first condo on Friday around
noon. Rather stressful, especially since the title company was
somewhat incompetent and came up with about 5 different amounts that I
owed at closing by the time we finally finished. But God worked
it out and I had enough to take care of everything and I have
keys. Did a bunch of painting over the weekend, so I'm
exhausted. More later (and pictures).

Not a very popular sentiment here in Illini country, but I've been a
Tar Heels fan since high school. Not sure how it started (might
have something to do with a guy named Jordan), but it's by far my
longest lasting sports allegiance. I just like the style of play
in the ACC in general and there are just some great coaches
there. Anyway, I thought the Illini looked vulnerable in a couple
of their earlier tournaments games. they are a good team, but
really had no answer for Sean May down in the paint. it's good to
see the national title come back to Chapel Hill, it's been quite a
while. way to go, Tar Heels.
