See You In Hell!

Monday, October 03, 2005


I am nervous. And anxious. And a bit numb.
All because of this big adult thing I have just embarked upon. No, I'm not talking about a German scheisse film. I am speaking of...(drum roll) BUYING A HOUSE. We made an offer. The offer was accepted (I wasn't really expecting that part). Tomorrow we have the home inspection, and the day after that, the sewer scope (ok, that IS part of a German scheisse film), and THEN, assuming they don't find Jimmy Hoffa in our crawl space, a ridiculously overpriced 1923 bungalow with hardwood floors and built-ins is ours, all ours!

HOLY FUCKING SHIT, am I weirded out by this!!

Major kudos, Jege! Homeownership is the road to being a conservative! I'm glad you're finally coming around!

home-ownership is the road to being a free-thinking, "i can paint the walls any fucking color i want" liberal! i'm glad you are still on the right track!

I'm sorry...were you saying something? I couldn't hear you over all of that suck.

Nice try, though.

All your nervousness will fade into the background when you do your taxes and see that HUGE deduction and get a big fat refund check. Yum.

True! That is one of the best parts of owning a home! Love that check, although the painting the walls whatever color you want is also a very nice added bonus :) We've enjoyed both.

Congrats again, Jege!!

Now we've just got to get our asses in gear and finish our house so we can sell it, buy a different one and truly make this the 'year of the house' for the Leingirlz3!

Houses schmouses. Floyd has no use for such trivial matters.

I have to admit, I am most excited that you will live close enough that I can stumble home drunk again. Hurray!

... so this is where the fabled "Jege" resides! Your name is bandied about on Thomas's site like that of a famous person.

But seriously, folks. I guarantee in two years you'll kick youself for not doing the house-buying thing sooner.

Good luck with Hoffa!

Thanks, all! We just had the home Hoffa in the crawlspace, so it's lookin' good!

Such a shame. Floyd understands that Hoffa in the walls greatly increases the value of a home. Floyd should know since Floyd was the one who killed that union fuck.

Holy Cow! Congratulations! Home ownership - isn't that President Bush's dream for every American?
