Life update! Good stuff! Also, need help!

Update time again, kiddies. (Not kitties, telling the cats didn't seem to impress them much!)

Yesterday, I set a PR in the half-marathon distance, and my fiancee completed her first marathon!

I recieve my Bachelors of Science 2 weeks from yesterday. College took 4 times the expected duration, but boy does it feel good to be almost done.

Finally, last monday, My fiancee got offered a Graduate Assistantship at Boston University. She reports sometime early August. So, now we're moving to Boston a month and a half before the wedding in Toronto!

So:

1. Anyone here live in Boston?
2. Does that someone know a good landlord in the Fenway/BU/Cambridge area? (1 bedroom that takes cats (and averageish credit), please!)
3. Does that someone also know a good IT recruiter? (13 years experience, awesome resume, great references!)

I'm a little freaked out because I've never moved this far, never had this much going on at once, etc. So I'm looking for whatever help I can get

All I know about Boston is I greatly enjoyed my two trips there. People were friendly and it was a beautiful city, full of history.


Best of luck on your move, wedding, graduation and life in general.

Thanks, yeah, we're pretty excited. And my previous week there for MacWorld Expo in 1995 was a good one, so I know it's a teriffic place.

All this stuff going on is why I havent been around much. That and going to a bike forum and not being able to ride due to weather made it hard to want to post. So now I might be able to ride some off and on as we move into spring.

Plus I have a triathlon to train for 4/18/09
