Helpful: How to find a new apartment in two hours

1) Look at ads on Craigslist
2) Find great-looking ad; call number.
3) Reach agent on first ring; tell her you will be there in 30 minutes.
4) Head to the 'L' platform; catch a train with no delay.
5) Get off at Argyle; walk by a dozen Asian markets and restaurants.
6) Get to apartment on Winnemac right near Clark St. in Andersonville; see that it is same rent as your current apartment but way, way nicer.
7) Realize that you have met the agent before--you bumped into her at a friend's garage sale where they were all drinking margaritas.
8) See one other apartment; realize that it can't compare to first one.
9) Call agent; set up lease signing for Wednesday. Done and done.

Yep. We have a great place here, but it has a bit of a dungeon feel.
