  1. :pokes head in: Are there any women in here? Oh hi, Zabz. Let me get caught up and I'll dive in too.
  2. I want some chickens for my new place. We have a big yard and very little traffic on the new street. I've always loved the New Orleans free range chicken population and now I want some of my very own. The GF has experience with chickens and eggs are delicious. Anyone else have them? What breeds do you like? Tips on coop building and winterization? Chicken stories? Let me have it. EDIT: ALSO THIS WILL MEAN WE CAN PLAY CHICKEN DROP AT MY BARBECUES!
  3. Hey Congratulations! I totally understand about cleaning. My tenants left me garbage. Bags and bags and bags of garbage. They also let the lights get disconnected and the FRIDGE. OMG! I don't know if there's enough bleach in the world. Been cleaning like a mad woman every night. My closing got postponed. Cross fingers that it's THIS friday! @IheartTesla Duly noted! At least once the repairs are done!
  4. Dammit. I missed out on the vintage Gash, but it looks like it's available in another line. I REALLY didn't need to look at the Vice line with this wallet.
  5. I'm supposed to close on Friday. We have some leaks from the balcony and we need to tent for drywood termites. Also the carpet is ugly and needs to be removed.
  6. Revised offer accepted! Now moving into storage and packing to couch surf for a few weeks until major repairs are complete. ARGH! C'mon October! By then I'll be living in the little dollhouse of my dreams.
  7. Help Houston, my people. NOLA is trapped by the rain and by flooded freeways. Help Houston. Please.
  8. We're still having trouble with our pump systems. Everything is closing for tomorrow down here in NOLA.
  9. I'm familiar with the weather down here. I found a place. Not raised as much as I'd like and I'll need to put ramp up in the driveway, but it's 2 story, so I can just go upstairs and wait if we flood badly. Looks like minimal water intrusion through the frontdoor during pumpgate a few weeks ago. Our inspection period ends today and and we're revising the offer a little bit because the house needs to be tented and that's going to delay the move and be a huge pain in the ass. Not the tenting, but the cleanup afterwards. I'm not going to move the animals (or my girlfriend) in after fumigation until everything has been scrubbed 100 times. Wish us luck! Looking to close on both places September 8. In the meantime, I am a total stress wreck. Inspection costs are killing me right now.
  10. Where have you been, dude! Welcome back. I think Mrs. Lobster is on to you and is just handing you the rope.
  11. Thanks! I've seen a few places that I like. Going to look at a couple more if I can get my students to nail down a schedule. Nothing that's perfect so far, but several that would do nicely.
  12. Accepted an offer, I'm just sick. Gotta get everyone out by the 31st. They were warned last month, but have shown ZERO signs of cooperation.
  13. Ok, 7 groups went through tonight and I have 2 more offers to deal with before noon tomorrow. Cramps our house hunting day, we were supposed to get started at 10:00 AM. HATE THIS.
  14. Gah, This has already been a rollercoaster. Have an investor who put in 3 separate offers within an hour. Got 4 showings today from 5-7 and a totally uncooperative tenant. Fiancee is here and we're going looking tomorrow. So tempted to take the last offer from the investor and say FUCK IT.
  15. I liked this one too, but when I tried to start the third one I got a bit of World Exhaustion. I need to pick up something else before I go back to it.
