All Setup in Brooklyn

We moved into the new apartment on Monday, and the last week has been a flurry of activity in getting everything setup.  The first few days were spent getting some essentials, but the big fun started on Friday morning when the movers arrived with all of our stuff.  It arrived in fairly good condition, and we've not noticed anything missing yet that we did not later find.  We made lots of walking trips to Costco, Target, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.  I got renter's insurance and a ZipCar membership for doing errands.  We even had our first houseguest on Saturday night.

I'm afraid our life is looking suspiciously like the entries in  Park Slope will do that to you.  However, we've been mixing it up.  Saturday, when we were walking to lunch, we made up a game where I'd get points for every stroller, and Annelies would get points for every dog we passed.  I got off to an early 4 to 1 lead, but she came from behind on the walk back to the apartment to win the match.  I'm not sure how to count babies that are strapped to the parent in a Baby Bjorn contraption; if I'd gotten those points, it would have been a tie.

We saw Kristen Schaal (the fan Mel on Flight of the Conchords) and Kurt Braunohler perform on Saturday night amid the downpour from Hurricane Hannah.  Here's a clip of one of the bits they did, although I think our version actually went a ltitle longer.
