oh dear.

now, i'm not complaining here. no sirree should this be construed in any way, shape, or form as a complaint. because as i may have mentioned once or 17 times, i am really, really glad that we have an apartment to move to in the DC area. however - i am also glad that they offer short-term leases. because as nice as the apartment is, well...

a landscape comparison, courtesy of google satellite:

this is my neighborhood in chicago.

this will be our neighborhood in alexandria.

whoa. suburban sojourn, anyone? and yes, that big white building dominating the area is a mall. a mall!

well, at least i can get to ann taylor loft and victoria's secret easily.

I forgot how cool Google maps' satellite setting is. :) Don't worry, you'll be having so much fun wandering around D.C. proper that you won't care how suburban your 'hood is!

hey man, if that's the mall i think it is, you ain't got nothing to worry about. Really fantastic mall.
