It was staring me in the face the whole time but I realize now that we're living in a time that, in the future, we will refer to as the great Journey revival of the late 2000s

Just got word that the seller has agreed to all of our demands! The closing date is firm.

Closing 9/23

Moving Day! 9/26 (three weeks away!)

I think everyone that I've helped move has offered to help but if I helped you move and forgot about it I'm pulling my card!

I've taken some things I learned in my short time with the Obama campaign and the move will be highly organized.

And of course there will be beer, gatorade, soda, water, pizza and Amanda brand baked goods!

Favorite thing of the moment [Sep. 4th, 2009|12:02 pm]

Italian Soda:

Big cup full of ice
pour in:
2 Tablespoons of flavoring syrup (the stuff they put in coffee, about 70 calories)
add in:
Tiny bit of cream (I use light cream)
add in:
1 Can of Seltzer

Stir with big spoon and enjoy!

It's like a soda but with half the calories and not too sweet. Quite refreshing and you can make stuff like Hazelnut or butter rum soda.

I was at the eye doctor's yesterday and a question on the form was "what are your hobbies". I hate this question, my first answer in my head is always "doing stuff". The first thing I usually put down is "Adventuring" because what else would you call picking a place on a map and just driving there. Also, I'm pretty much down for any kind of spectacle, rodeo, gallery night, whatever.
Sure I like taking pictures, foursquare, web development, music collecting, board games, D&D etc. I mean, getting down to detail and saying "I do this, this and this" seems like a silly way to do things, right? I had a real "hobby" once and it was urban exploration and it damn near ate my life for two years. I prefer things like they are now.

Still... whenever I'm presented that question I can't help but feel bewildered and boring. I think I might come up with a stock set to answer with from now on to see if anybody is paying attention. Something like "Catfish noodling, harpsicord model building and canary restoration"

So this Blip.FM thing, posting songs. Is it annoying? Cool? Be honest here, I'll take it off it it's annoying.

Also, got my certificate of eligibility in for the VA loan, appraisal ordered Wednesday. While I was 100% sure I was eligible only a fool trusts the Army to do paperwork properly. There was a small but real chance that my hopes could have been dashed. Obstacle avoided!

Next on my list is the inspection of course, after that appraisal. If all goes well I'm going to try to get the closing moved up a week (or two maybe)

Finally, if anybody wants to buy a house and wants to know how the whole shebang works let me know. It's better to get a feel for the entire process yourself instead of trusting a realtor or someone else.
