So... We filled out all the online paperwork to get an apartment. We'll go in to sign the lease and get the keys and whatnot on December 8. (This is also the day I was already working a half day so I could drive up to Fairfax in the afternoon. Because I love a good busy day.)
(Wouldn't it be cool if we still used keys like that? Neat.)
Not that it's half as exciting as apartment-procuring, but I will have a NaNo update later.
