We’re moving to Wichita

Official seal of City of Wichita

Last week, I wrote a post announcing that we had found a place in Pratt and would soon be moving there. It seems I spoke too soon.

Diane’s had a counter-offer from her existing employer that is much more attractive for a number of reasons, and so she’ll be keeping her job and operating out of her company’s Wichita office. Rather than Diane driving over 80 miles each way every day, we asked our new landlords in Pratt if they’d be willing to terminate our lease, which they graciously offered to do.

It’s funny how plans can change so dramatically so rapidly. I’m disappointed to be a little farther from Sharon and my friends in Pratt, but this situation will be much better for Diane and me in the long run.

Our new place in Pratt

It’s done. Diane and I have signed a lease for a duplex in Pratt. We spent yesterday looking for places and, after inspecting several places, finally found one we liked. It has significantly more space than our current duplex in Manhattan, and will end up being much more functional.

We’ll start moving in after next week.

Tron

Tron (film)

Last night we watched The Diplomat. It wasn’t a bad movie, but there wasn’t exactly a payoff. The Blu-ray was divided into two parts, and it was only once we got it back to the house that we realized it was a British TV production. I thought the movie was over once the first part was over, and it was disappointing to have to watch the second half.

Lucas, Christopher and I watched Tron: Legacy today at the theater. None of us had seen the original. I can say that it was much better than what I expected, having heard very disparaging things about it. Olivia Wilde‘s performance was a pleasant surprise. The value was in the effects, certainly, as the plot wasn’t exactly compelling.

Since we were entertained and intrigued by the sequel, we watched the original Tron this evening. That movie was silly, though would have been an enjoyable watch when I was in junior high.

I’m scheduled to start recording tomorrow with Andy. Looking forward to it.
