|bzarcher's bits are best described as his "gargantuan carrot".|
I am just a bit tippled. Alex and I got the apartment stuff finished (pending getting utility accounts and the background check finished), bought CoH (which I haven't installed, yet, but give me time), and we met Alex's mom and brother at the airport. Took them to their hotel. Alex's mom then decided that Alex needed a birthday present, so we went to S&K and she bought him 2 new suits, 5 new shirts, 3 new ties, 2 pairs new shoes, belts, and lots of extra stuff. Needless to say, we made the salesman's day.
Then, we headed to Columbus Fish Market. SOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I can't describe how good this food was. Met neeri there, and Alex's mom basically ordered the biggest raw bar appetizer possible, several rafts of drinks for everyone, told us to go crazy on dinner (I did, getting 2 6 oz. Austrailian lobster tails with green beans and potato), and desserts until we were ready to fall out the door.
So, so, so good. A very busy but very neat day. And Alex's mom is really a very nice woman. Very, very tiny, and she speaks pretty fluent Koreanlish, but still reasonably understandable.
And she wants to take us out to dinner again tomorrow night. Hoooobdoy.
We have an address for the townhouse. :D Once we get confrimation of the background check Monday, we set up the accounts, and we're in. :D
