Throw away your Picasso painting. 'Night of the living squirrel' is the only art you'll ever need

Just got back from seeing America Pie 2 with: themabbi, brad, mrwiz, nick, garrettpalm, and ferrell. I think that's everyone... I forget...

Ben called me and said they were going to see at 9:40 and wanted to know if I was interested. I had nothing better to do, so a 45 minute drive to Beaverton/Hillsboro sounded like the thing to do. I really expected the movie to suck ass because most sequels do. It certainly wasn't a great movie, but there were some pretty good laughs in it. I enjoyed it.

After that Garrett and Ferrell took off and the rest of us went back to Brad's to play some pool. Brad lives somewhere in ... Aloha? I have no idea, he was navigating me, but it's pretty wild. His house is absolutely incredible... It makes the street of dreams look like chump change... amazing!

We played a couple games of pool and then we took off. Brad had to program, and it was late. So we dropped Nick off and then ended up at Mike's house. Played a couple games of Worms, and a game of tennis and then I took off. Pretty eventful night overall.

Update: I forgot to mention that Brad asked me something to the effect of, "what the hell is up with your subject lines, they have nothing to do with the entries, but they're interesting enough that I read the entry and find out they're not related." Basically it works like this... my life is boring... so no one would read it if I didn't spice it up a little... So a little no sequitur subject does the trick.

Slight fever, some skin lesions and pussy sores.

My realtor called me this morning bright and early (9:30am) returning my call about looking at some houses I drove by the other day. Sucked to get woken up so early (I went to be about 2:30am) but it was good that it was him because I need to get that done. I wasn't even going to answer it, I was still in bed. But the phone rang and Dan bolted out of bed to get it. :)

So now I'm gonna grab my digital camera and head out of here. I checked the classified ads for open houses today. There are quite a few in the area, few of which I can afford however. I just wanna walk through some houses and get a feel of what I should be looking for. Tomorrow I'll walk through houses I can afford. Gonna go back through House #2, hopefully take Angie and davidfrey as well. I want a second opinion.

I'll see you guys tonight, in the "No Fucking Section," right?

Just got back from about 3 solid hours of house hunting. It's fricking hot, and my car has no air conditioning so that didn't help. It wasn't too bad... Saw 6 total new houses today, and I'm looking at some more tomorrow. Nothing super spectactular... I did look at some nice houses, but nothing I could really afford. Good to get an idea of what I can get for my money. Here are the pictures:

House #4, House #5, House #6, House #7, House #8, House #9

So I came to the conclusion today that some people are just retarded... House #6 and House #8 were both pretty ass... Parts of the house falling down, and other parts were just never improved from the original build in the 70s.

Then I see a house like House #5 that's out of my price range ($180k) and I see how nice it is for what you get and it makes me wonder. So far I'm still pretty happy with House #2.
