In, like, a week. Eek.

I'm ridiculously excited.

Questions for Pittsburghy people:
  1. Do you know anyone who's subletting for the summer? We're looking for somewhere to stay while we house-hunt (preferably furnished, and definitely in Squirrel Hill, Shadyside or Oakland).
  2. Comcast or Verizon FiOS? Or are there other options?
  3. Do you have any recommendations for cell phone providers/plans/phones? I was all excited about getting an Android, but I had no idea mobile telephony was so freakishly expensive in the US. I hereby take back all the mean things I've said about QTel.
  4. In the extremely unlikely case that you have spawned young in Pittsburgh: Magee or West Penn?

Edit: In response to several questions -- it looks like Justin will have a couple job options in Pittsburgh, so we don't actually know where he'll be working yet.

Yay! It will be great to see you guys!

1. I may have something for you, will contact you via other channels.
2. FiOS, if possible. I just switched recently when it became available in Squill. I have a data-only 25 symmetric plan for about $70 a month. Comcast pissed me off way too many times.
3. We just have iPhones, so not really.
4. I will ask some of my other friends on this one. I think I've heard good things about Magee though.

4. "The answer to that is "it depends". If it's a high-risk pregnancy, or you want to use midwives but also have the mental security of being in a hospital, magee. If you want to potentially get the awesome male lactation consultant, west penn." The Midwife center in the strip is another option.

"The male lactation consultant is supposedly the best in Pittsburgh."
"The male lactation consultant was super fabulous. much better than the two female lactation consultants i talked to. and both magee and west penn have level III NICUs."
"So neither hopsital is really better, as far as i can tell. better is really more about your doctor."
