Laura and I moved apartments last weekend. For the first time since 2006, I live in a city other than Phoenix. Welcome to Tempe, pronounced tem-PEE, with the accent on the second syllable, and I should make an effort to say it right after saying it wrong for the last nine years.
Wikipedia says Tempe is named after the Vale of Tempe, a gorge in Greece. Greece makes me think of mythology, and a phoenix is a mythological bird, so really the cities are very similar. They're also adjacent.
