I jumped the gun because I am not leaving for another week and a half, so I figure I will give the update. I get a call last night from HR of the new job and they had found me an apartment at a crazy good price. The price is so good that it actually scares me. It is less than I pay now and I have an excellent deal now. The only problem is that it is right in Elmira and I was hoping to try to move to Corning. I am going to check it out this Friday on my way back to the AVO. The other problem I am having is coming up with a good nickname for Elmira. HElmira seems too obvious to me. I had picked 'The Glass Cage' for Corning, because Corning invented glass or something like that that. The only thing I have to work on is the Mark Twain retired here and every other thing is named after him and the other half is name after some dude by the name of Samuel Clemens. The only other famous thing might be that there was a Union prison camp there during the Civil War. I have heard tell that it was worst that Andersonville, but the north won so it is the South that is portrayed as the barbarians. So If anyone has any ideas please leave them in the comments.
