Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titantic

I like my apartment -- I've lived there for all four years I've lived in Chicago. I've had a variety of room mates (oh yeah, Mustapha's back!).

Saturday I spent a good couple of hours rearranging things in the living room to make it a little more livable. And then walked out the back door to have the upstairs neighbors tell me that the sale of the building last month was, in fact, a move to condo-hood and that we had to move out soon. ("An unspecified date" she said, but we don't have a lease right now, so our unspecified date could be any 30-days-notice away.)

So... Shaun and I are looking for (a) new place(s). If you know a nice place to live in Chicago, let me know.
