^That's walking distance from me.

There are a bunch of nature walks too for another free activity (though people tend to not think of forests when they think of Baltimore), they are worth checking out.
Yeah, there are a lot of good places to walk/hike in the Balto area. Right now a friend and I are working on completing the Torrey Brown (formerly NCR) Trail, a couple miles at a time.

Have you been to a Legal Seafood yet?

The oysters on the half shell are amazing, and the swordfish is delicious.

My trip stop is Madison is always to Babcock for some ice cream, and then The Great Dane for a Crop Circle Wheat. Good luck with the move back.

That's what I've been asking myself too. In this time of economical hardship in the US it's not exactly recommendable to quit a job before having gotten another one. It's comperatively easy to find a job while still being under contract somewhere else but it's next to impossible to get a job out of unemployment, particularly self-inflicted unemployment.
It's a psychological phenomenon: employers like to believe they have stolen a worker from their competitors. If someone is unemployed they hesitate to hire him, assuming that he must be a bad worker since nobody else wanted him. And if he quit himself and is unimployed he's sure to be capricious and difficult and will propably go again very soon if hired. So he might not be worth the trouble of hiring him.

Which all doesn't apply in this case, I'm sure. But tell that to the staff managers...

No, but my lease is up and I sure as hell am not spending another twelve months out here. I already have a few phone interviews set up for this week.

Re: Baltimore! ... oh, shit. Now what?

^Heh, I've eaten there, during Otakon this year, and last year, on my brothers request.

Oh, and Otakon is one of those great conventions I mentioned earlier which I take part in, along with Comicon, and Star Trek conventions.

I hope it works out for you and you land one of the jobs.

Injera is Ethiopian bread. It's like a huge, very thin but spongy pancake made of a sourish yeast dough. You tear off little bits and load them with meat, veggies or sauce. (In Ethiopia you eat with your right hand - there's no cutlery. The left hand is considered unclean as it's generally used for personal hygiene. Wise precaution, actually, and very hygienic. Prevents infections with intestinal bacteria.)

Often the food is served directly on a huge injera

Here's a pretty good sum up of Ethiopian etiquette, including table manners:

If anyone's going to Dukem, let me know. My brother lives literally two blocks away and the place is awesome.
