Ok, well, we decided not to go for that long drive after all. Miss Spigotpumpkin has been prone to prolonged bouts of crying in the evening (as babies tend to be) and we began to wonder whether we'd be able to get enough sleep to drive safely, much less do anything useful once we got there. Inclined to think the answer is "no", decided to stay put. Anyway, we've managed to gather information from several sources so I feel like I can make some kind of decision.

Waiting on the counter-offer now. The suspense is killing me.

Finished reading Mieville's "The City & The City" (or is it just "The City"?). Excellent work, as always. I'm especially appreciative of his canny deployment of basic linguistic terminology: "Copula Hall".
