Moving day

In the past, when I've written that headline, it's meant I'm moving blogs. Today, however, I'm moving homes. As I've been doing for the better part of a week now (nothing makes you less excited about moving than, well, moving). So your faithful blogger is going to take the day off to pick up furniture in Baltimore and finish painting and clean his old place. I'll be back tomorrow. Try not to break anything while I'm gone.

good luck Mr Klein.

How in God's name did you find the time to find a home, sign up for a mortgage (hope you didn't use Fannie or Freddie Mac!!) and move now with only missing one day.

Good luck and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

"furniture in Baltimore" - hmm - is that a a new way of saying "going to Ikea"?

Mr. Klein -- good luck. But if a Washington Post blogger is painting and cleaning his own old place or new place on moving, then the Post is not paying you enough. Painting and cleaning are both rather inexpensive services to hire -- and blogging for a major media outlet is a cutting-edge-of-the-media-future position.

Tell Fred Hiatt I said so!

Ah, Ezra, wait until you have to move that which belongs to you (and has mysteriously become a huge, tentacular world unto itself over the years) *as well as* that which belongs to your spouse and children. It will give new meaning to moving-aversion--not to mention wrenched muscles--and you'll look back on your single-guy moving days with wistful longing.

Congratulations anyway. May you enjoy many years of happiness and creativity in your new digs.

KDID mentioned Ikea. That's not a store--it's something of an infection of houses that begins with replacing a few bookcases and spreads until the kitchen's been rebuilt. The final phase is discovering that the existing pots, pans, and dishes aren't suitable. Finally, the fever winds down and the place is nice and Swedish.

Please, don't turn into Cilizza and daily yammer about wife and children, domicile, favorite sports hero, Politics, what we tune in for, what you would tune in for, you got the access to the events that produce tidbits of info on that we add to develop a picture.
