No House For You

A brief post today.

Yeah, the town house in Brampton... ...let's just say it's a little TOO fixer-upper. We both liked the layout and the location, and the exterior. But inside, absolutely everything needs to be changed and we don't have the money to do that, considering we'd be throwing all our money at a mortgage and condo fees for it. And we're just not handy gays. Y'know? Other gay guys could rips stuff apart and decorate and renovate like the wind. Us??? Not so much. We kinda need a place that we can move into and change over time. This place is a little better than a hovel, and we'd have to live in said hovel for god-knows how long. (with holes in the walls, and nasty floors, shitty carpets, and fucking wallpaper EVERYWHERE...) It needs new kitchen cabinets, and electrical work... blah blah blah. Anyhow... I'm a little bit relieved, a little bit disappointed. The dogs would have loved the little yard and the neighbourhood. Oh well. I wasn't crazy about moving all the way out to Brampton anyhow. My commute is long-enough as it is.

Later peeps. The Thursday workload beckons... or is that the Thursday workload cracks it's whip??

No time for lyrics today, but I do recommend a song called "Baseline" by Quarashi. It's a funky rap/reggae/rock/alternative hybrid tune. The band is largely unknown. The album is called "Jinx" and it's awesome when you're in the mood for something aggressive.

Well that's ok. I still think you should check with your bank, see what you'd be pre-approved for... and as someone else said ... you DON'T HAVE TO SPEND THAT MUCH! :-) and if this is yours and Teds and the poochies dream you keep looking until you find THE place...

Care to elaborate on that anonymous? :)

And thanks M.K. I think we're going to wait a little longer, til we've got more of a hold on our finances than our finances have on us. I think we're both ready to buckle down and take control of things we haven't been good about.

Well, as my Grandma would say...
