I’ve moved to Palatine. It was a harrowing move, but I made it, dispite the tornado, the storm, the power outage, the traffic and of course, the movers showing up 4 hours late. I must say, the place is convenient, clean and really a good deal, but with not much culture in the neighborhood.
But I also have bad news to report. I purchased a laptop on ebay on 3/23 and I just found out that my money is probably lost. Yup, I’m out $633.30. No Christmas presents for you. For all you ebayers out there, FYI, SquareTrade seals only protect against individual discrepencies, not wholesale fraud like mine. So always use a credit card. I will.
