We're always really elitist when it comes to Christmas tree-shopping

Just got back from doing another walk through of the house that I liked. No pictures yet, just the website. Took my ever discerning father with me this time. It was good to go again and see it in the light. I think it will work out very well, but it will need some work. I'll have to do so painting, and maybe redo some of the outside woodwork. No big deal.

At this point I just have to figure out how to proceed with making an offer on a for sale by owner. Working with a realtor they handle all the paperwork, now I'm on my own. Guess I'm off to the internet to find some insight on that.

Gonna catch Ocean's 11 with scooty, gorgonous, bigj, and Jason at 4:30. Looks like it should be a pretty decent movie.

Coors Lite, I choose you! Pika, pika.

Ocean's 11 was a really sweet movie. It was a lot cooler than I expected it to be. I want to see the original with the Brat Pack now.

Still trying to figure the whole house thing out. Messes things up because they don't want to deal with my realtor. My uncle suggested that we try and negotiate them paying a percentage of the broker fees, and I pay the rest. I'm not really sure. I'm not in a big hurry to go back to them with that since they were pretty quick to say they didn't want to deal with that. I need to track down some more information on doing the whole thing myself.

Argh! I just want a freaking house already. It shouldn't be that hard! I'm not looking for anything extravagant and I have money to spend. I'm used to the rest of the economy where if you have money the sellers come running to you.
