Looking for housing in Ann Arbor?

Welcome to all the millions of readers streaming in endless hordes from this post on Left Behind at the Fishbowl, many thousands of whom are probably U-M students. Please allow me draw your attention to this fine rental property on the north side of Ann Arbor, which is quite nice and reasonably priced and is in a fine location, with easy access to the North and Medical campuses and actually quite close to central campus as well. At right is a picture of a well-known blogger painting the beautiful bathroom of this fine dwelling (which dried to a slightly darker...

Happiness is...

... a toilet that disnae leak anymore. Thank the Toilet-Fixing Man! The fiendish ceramic creature's reign of terror is at last at an end!...

La plombería del apartamento al lado del mío

God only knows what I've just said in Spanish. I think they've finished the apartment next door, which is rather odd because they'd only been at it two days. It sort of frightens me because I don't see how they could fit the shower in the bathroom without knocking out some walls, so I fear they may have just plonked the it down in the middle of the kitchen. The plumber asked me last night if I could switch apartments today. Yeah, like it's that simple. And yeah, like I didn't have to work. I'm kind of hoping I won't...

Plumbers at the crack of dawn

So much for my nice Wednesday grasse matinée. Apparently they did not finish the shower yesterday, so they are back this morning. I've said it before and I'll say it again: that room is cursed and the entire building is the epicenter of All Things Weird in Vichy....

Why does my bathroom smell like it's on fire?

The plumber accosted me as I got out of the shower in the hallway this morning. "I need to talk to you... later," he said, realizing I was wearing a towel. Once I was presentable I came out into the hallway to see what was up. He had come to install the shower in the apartment next door, and proposed to put one in mine while he was at it. "Um... I have to go to work," I protested weakly, "and Mme Messana said you were going to do that one, move me into it, then do mine.." "No, that's...

Damn you, Immo Vichy (25.9.02)

I finally got to visit an apartment today. This one was through an agency, Immo Vichy. The Immo Vichy woman showed me the apartment, which was a delightful studio (read: kitchen in the bedroom) with construction work going on outside, no closet space, no linens, and no oven, all for the delightful price of 250€, which of course does not include tax or utilities. I told her I'd call her. I got an email from one of the other American assistants in the Vichy agglomeration, telling me her phone number and address and saying she was lonely and had an...

Independence looms ever nearer

Wanted: Small, clean apartment in a non-scary neighborhood, with full bathroom and some sort of kitchen-like area where one might learn to cook or at least heat frozen foods. Location: unknown so far, but probably somewhere in France, assuming I get the assistantship. I've never lived alone before. I imagine it will be quite lonely. I dno't know how to make friends. I imagine it will be rather pricey, but I've never paid rent before. I don't know how much is normal. I don't know how much money it will require to feed and house me or if the money...
