House Update! I think it's been a while I rambled on subject, so here's the big stuff: we found a house, we made an offer, they accepted the offer, and we're in the midst of getting it all inspected and repaired. I can see this heading in either of two directions.
Option A: we fail to read the contract carefully and the seller manages to slip in a crazy clause specifying that we must turn our backyard into a walrus sanctuary. The cost of caring for the walruses drive us into the poor house, and I am eventually arrested for trying to sell tusks on eBay.
Option B: all of that walrus stuff still occurs, except this time, we manage to incorporate as a charity and, through donations, we barely manage to pay the bills. The walruses begin to hate the attention of their benefactors. They become ill-tempered, then chew through the fence in the backyard and start attacking the neighbors. Lawsuits drive us into the poor house, and PETA hires a hitman to kill me.
There's plenty of time for this plan to progress, since we don't actually close until May 1. That's due to some quirks with our lease, the main quirk being that our lease is terrible. While I did manage to sneak a walrus protection clause into that lease, I somehow forgot to look and see if it was possible to leave this place early. Ahhh well, I had my priorities.Posted by Cody at March 10, 2008 7:39 PM
