A pre election warm up.

Help us decide WHERE the hell should we move. NYC or DC? It’s that easy. We have talked about both jobs, they are nearly identical. It comes down to where.

Or should we stay here and hope we can pay our bills all the while saving enough money to eventually move away?

Got a coin? Flip one. Magic 8 Ball? Shake that bitch. Got a fortune teller handy? Ask her if It’ll be a boy or a girl. I’m asking for feedback. Even if you just want to tell us how crazy we are for possibly leaving San Francisco so soon.

Now, I must go and write (and call) people back thanking them for being so amazing and helpful and sweet.

P.S. Gina, if you find work in Detroit, then hells yes!

P.P.S. Dad and Mom, thanks for being so helpful and flexible.

P.P.P.S Ryan, thanks for toying with the idea of letting us stay with you should we move to NYC.

P.P.P.P.S Soung, thanks for also offering up your big wonderful house should we move to D.C.

  1. well… having just spent my first weekend ever in NYC and still basking in the ‘afterglow’ as it is… New York gets my vote.

    i’d move there in a heartbeat if it wasn’t so hard for us Canadians to get work visas for down there.

    but since i can’t… you should.

    god bless the east village.

  2. Just wed some nice american gal. Hell, many of threats have been made on the internet lately about moving to Canada depending on this year’s election outcome. :] I’m sure you could find many takers. Put an ad on Ebay.

  3. This really is a hard choice you guys are making…..DC is a really great place and NYC is neato too…..and San Fran has its qualities too….oh the decisions. OK, I think I am going to have to give you guys my vote of NYC. You guys seem to have the most connections there, your family is close by, and it would give me another person to visit whenever I get around to venturing back to NYC again. But then again it would be a lot cheaper for me if you guys stayed here in Noe Valley!!!!!
    At any rate, I know you guys will be happy with what ever choice you make. :o)

  6. I’m an hour late for work and the muni is barely moving because there are 200 little kids in costume getting on. Crap.

  7. Open wireless networks in NYC is reason enough to move there. I vote NYC. There, I said it.

  11. New York City. I can moor my boat just outside your old loft and you can live on it and still have that great view of the city. The cats can become mousers over at Ryan’s. That’s the only reason he offered to let you live there in the first place – he wants the cats.

  15. sounds like NYC’s tippin the scales…

  16. There! Marry mia! Problem solved.

  17. I also vote for NYC. it’s providence: I’m writing this while using an wireless network in nyc. It was my great pleasure to show dubstylenine around this weekend, enjoying his genuine enthusiasm (i could almost hear him humming Andrew W.K. ‘I love NYC’ under his breath) and good nature. I bet Michele and Tobyjoe can show him around way better than I could.

  19. looks like i’d better start practicing some pool…. see you at ace bar. (woo-hooooo!)

  20. There must be other important criteria on your list
    beside
    open
    wireless
    networks.

    Either way, though, travel time from NYC to DC is the same as DC to NYC.

  21. “Got a fortune teller handy? Ask her if It’ll be a boy or a girl.” Am I the only one who thinks this means you’re pregnant??

    Reply

  22. haha! no, I am not pregnant. That would be totally insane since we have no health insurance out here and haven’t in months and months. I was only teasing.

    Reply

  23. That might have explained the sadness—all those hormones! You two are always good with the surprises, so I wouldn’t have been shocked.

    Reply

  24. These surprises are getting old tho, no? I mean, they are for me. But then again, we didn’t think we would stay here forever. So whatever. I dunno. How confusing and scary. But no, I am not preggers. Not even close.

  25. For selfish reasons, DC…but then again if it’s NY we can visit—I have a feeling we’d see you MORE in NY than we did in DC anyway :P
    If it were me, NY. No question.

  26. What sucks about NYC is the apartment finding extravaganza. I mean, holy shit, where else do you need like 6 thousand dollars to move into a place? Yeesh.

    Reply

  27. It may just be because I started reading this when you were in NY, and that skew’s my perception, but ‘ya just seem like a NY gal.

  28. Anna and I (and two little furry ones) want you guys back in Bklyn!!!

  29. holy cow. he broke through! it’s a miracle!

  30. Did that hurt, wiz? I hope not. Now if Soung leaves a comment, I will faint.

    Reply

  31. Either is fine, as long as you don’t turn into one of those NY people that thinks the sun rises and sets only on you and that you’re somehow more enlightened than the rest of the world because you live there.

    I’ve had a couple of bitter experiences with the New York ‘tude.

  32. Detroit, Detroit, Detroit. It’s the new hot spot for sci-fi action films don’t ya know…like…were talking Ewan Mcgregor and etc. As of today we have a futuristic subway stop and some fully enclosed bus stops! Some day we will get the rest – tunnels, trains, buses that work, etc. Gina can look out her window at work and see them setting up. But seriously folks, Detroit? You would really move to Detroit if there were some good jobs? Come on.

    Reply

  33. Detroit has its charm, I won’t deny. Find us jobs and we’ll move in with you! Actually, there is snow there and I like snow.

  34. yeah, yeah. no thanks to you t.j. actually that’s not true. i do appreciate the advice- mihow.com on safari and myhole.com on explorer…

  35. I can’t believe I never knew that those using Explorer on a Mac don’t have a “Speak” button and therefore can’t leave posts. My husband is trying to get people to use the better browser. I guess.
