Houses here are still wayyyyy expensive. 850 Square Feet for about $185,000....that's one bedroom bigger than the current apartment I have. The houses in my neighborhood (that I love) are starting about $280,000 and up. It's crazy. I could afford to buy a house in bumblefuck, Colorado and have a nice 2 hour commute to work...nah, I'll pass.

Anyway - I hope both Bink and SYG get homes they love and stuff!

I got to see my best friend this past weekend - that was very good - so I'm happy!

the house i currently have an offer on is dicking me around so i went poking around online and also found the very first house i looked at back on the market. it was listed at slightly more than when i first saw it, but the back yard alone is well worth the difference. two problems though: (a) it needs a sewer lateral and (b) they've already accepted an offer by the time i saw it listed :cry:

Gah, sewer problems are no fun. And the idea of a house dicking you around... made me think of this:

Had a long, productive day at work. Feels good, man. Waiting for my girlfriend to get off work. She made some awesome lasagna for dinner tonight because she's a great cook (she's also very pretty). We're gonna eat at her place then go see Horrible Bosses, which looks like an awesome movie. I'm really excited about that because it has both Charlie Day and Jason Bateman in it, which are also the stars of two of the best sitcoms in the last twenty years, It's Always Sunny and Arrested Development.

I looked at some of my old posts on here and this scenario is definitely an improvement from being excited about a night of doing heroin with the boss' daughter. I think I might have even matured in the past six years.

HOLY poopcakes.

Indeed, I thought this was a lead up to a joke of sorts, and was like WHERE IS THE PUNCH LINE?!
Maturity. That's a zinger.

I think I get it. You're naturalizing yourself in civilized society so as to puncture its very heart, a killing blow all the more agonizing and decisive. How devious.

That said, Arrested Development genuinely was very good, so WHO THE HELL KNOWS?

Yeah, I think I might've gotten that from you. I'm not sure. OH WELL.

That being said, Horrible Bosses was one of the funniest movies I've seen in years. Much better than The Hangover. I dunno why so many people loved that movie. What a bunch of 'tards...

Retards all the way. Super-human strength is always gonna beat daddy issues.

Maybe if the bastards get a gun. That would make it interesting, but might just degenerate into retard hunting...

I know. Right? It wasn't even outstandingly bad. It wasn't outstanding in any way. It brought me a couple of hours closer to death, is all.

That's the thing about bastards, though: they wouldn't care.

I think some people just want to be cool and act like they can relate to such zany, alcohol-induced ongoings.

Ha, very true.

The more I think about it, I would love to see some bastards torn asunder by a pack of retards. Afterward, they get all the ice cream cake they can eat! Sponsored by Dairy Queen®.

So Good, It's RiDQulous!™

You should pitch this idea to NBC.


I'ma ramble about houses again, I HAVE NO OTHER OUTLET BECAUSE MY LIFE IS NOT A LIFE! Or something. So, house number 2: we like it. But asking price is out of our league. For the heck of it we lowballed an offer, they countered by barely budging, so we went up a bit, they countered again with something too high for us to afford. We said no and began looking at other houses. Then last night they said LOL JK WE WILL TAKE YOUR LAST OFFER HAHA.
So we got a pretty dang sweet deal (found out that they sold to us for less than the worth of their mortgage, so they lost a bit of money on the house...) But are still waiting on the inspection. If all goes well, we take possession Aug 15! It has a gorram hot tub!

yes! if it weren't for the totally decidedly unpleasant housing market i could never afford to buy a decent house in california! i gave up on the short sale house because they were taking way too long to make the decision to approve it and found another one with a view of the bay. in one of those bizarre twists of fate, both houses accepted my offer on the same day :roll: i'm taking the one with the view though, because it's not only a better house but has had the entire interior remodeled and supposedly new roof and gutters. the only major drawback is no garage, but i can find a way to work around that. and if anything i figure i can always put a garage on later if i really want to :D

Woohoo! Remodeled house with a view, that's exciting :D Graaaats! And if you ever do build a garage, it'll be nice having control over the layout and size and stuff.

The view from our back yard is... field! It's on the very edge of the city in a nice neighbourhood. It'll be awesome to have the BBQ going, relaxing in the hot tub while watching the sunset. Something I never thought possible, at least not until wayyyyyy in the future.

A bit of a housing crash is starting to happen in my city now, but for the last few years housing was crazy expensive. 2004-2007 was a good year to buy because the prices skyrocketed after that... until now. Dun dun dunnnn. So that plus the fact that the previous owners had already moved a few months ago and just wanted the house off their hands means we got a good deal.

Sorry, ramble ramble. YOU CAN'T STOP ME! MUAUAUUAHAhahahhahahahaaa.

WAIT A MINUTE, let's all remember whose idea this was in the first dang place! Christ!

I reckon Channel 4 would probably pick it up.

Every summer there's a fair near where I live. It's one of those great ones where they sell pretty much everything;
You could be looking at some clothing when you turn around and see an entire stand filled with comic books. next to that is some tv-shop-esque cleaning product, and next to that is a stand with toys and candy, across from which there's a stand with jewelry right next to the death metal accessories and so on. And pretty much everything is really cheap.

I bought five video games for 558 kr (Swedish crowns (SEK),I'm too lazy to convert it to other currencies, so here's a link), and two hats for 360 kr.

So, yeah. I'm pretty happy with that.
