Closing Escrow is in the Air. Posted on 11/22/2002.

Yesterday at 3p I found out my name had been recorded with the county as the owner of a smashing little lot on Russell Street in Berkeley. Huzzah!

It turns out that the day before, Steven closed on his Brooklyn brownstone.

Two blocks from my house is a Berkeley branch library which features a tool lending library. How cool is that?!

That's what I'm waiting to see: PeterMe with a tool in his hand instead of a computer on his lap.
