Social Butterfly this week

I'm just going to come out and say that I love my real estate agent.
When I was looking at buying the house she was so patient and showed house after house after house and always kept a great personality about her.  After getting the first rejection (from a bank who wouldn't sell to me at $7k more than the listed price) I took some time off and she kept sending me reminder emails that whenever I was ready, etc.
So, here we are over a year after the house was bought and she still keeps in touch and says hi once in a while and whenever I ask her some questions she is always quick with an answer.  The other day I got a hold of her about getting some paperwork that I currently need and yesterday after a couple of phone calls she worked the paperwork up for me and emailed it to save me from having to go running around town and getting what I needed that way.

So, Boo-Ya for my agent.  I hope I get friends looking for places to live so that I can recommend her!


Last night I watched:

Even though this is not my type of movie (blah, emotions, argh) it still wasn't too bad.  The best part of this movie is obviously that Whitney used to have a voice of gold before she got involved with Bobby Brown and they decided to drug away both of their futures (Remember, was a prominent recording artist at one point as well.  Ghostbusters 2 theme anyone? heh).  
Even though I thought I had seen it before I didn't remember any of it, so I guess I'm now resorting to watching chick flicks from the 90's that I have never seen.  Oh, I sure hope Waiting to Exhale is next!!!!!




After work I also hit up a Blockbuster that is closing but I was pretty much a day or two late on that adventure.  When I got there there were probably only about 10 video games left and the only one I wanted was Space Marine but I just didn't feel like shelling out the $10 bucks for it.  Instead I picked through a bunch of movies and walked away with.

Weeds Season 2 and 3 on Blue Ray for $4.99 each.
Some Watchman cartoon, Nine and Wall Street (all on Blue Ray).

I went through a lot of the "no case" DVD's where were 50 cents each and ended up not getting any of them because 1) - they are DVD's and I'm becoming a Blue Ray snob 2)scratches and 3) pretty much every TV Season that I had found was missing one of the discs.
Case in Point - Soprano's Season 2 I could not find Disc 1.  Same with Rome, Carnivale and Deadwood.  I really wanted Deadwood but it was missing a disc and conversely I found like 4 Disc 2's but that didn't help me.
They had a lot of other Season's boxed up for about $5 each but I didn't want the DVD versions or I just told myself that the ones I was going to buy are available on Netflix and I could just start that service up (Or Amazon Prime) again instead of buying this old junky DVD format.
As I was checking out there was a Mexican family in front dominating one of the registers.  I feel bad for the guy who had to check them out as they probably brought close to 400-500 videos up to the register and had him open every one so that they could inspect the disc and see if they wanted to buy or not.  Good for them I guess but I felt it was a bit assholiness on their part because they were rejecting about 1/3rd of them and they also were grabbing like 5 of one movie and bringing them up just to find the best disc which meant that no one else in the store could even look at those discs until the family was done because they grabbed every copy.  Whatever, it was DVD and not much concern for me.

Tonight I've got a friend in town visiting and I think her and I will be getting a bit of booze in us and then on Friday I do believe that I'm taking Jennifer Gay out for some cocktails.
Jennifer - if you read this how about a local comedy show as well? It's cheap ($5) and enjoyable and the waitress asks for drinks fairly often.
If you don't read this how about I just suggest it via text?

That be all because it's time to have someone beam me to work for another day of playing catch-up!

  1. When I look at this post in Foxfire, under where you say "Last Night I Watched This" there is nothing but blank space until the next bit of text. When I look at this in Chrome it's almost the same, but over on the right side there's a tiny blank box which I think means there is an image that isn't coming thru.

  2. Good do hear you found a good agent. Only used on once and she sucked. Might have to get that info from you. I'm gonna look at a few neighborhoods next trip. Nothing serious now just curious what my dollar gets me out there.

    2. Thanks. Its just an idea right now. If I did it it would probably be 6 years from now but I want a back up plan in case I just walk away from everthing here which could happen as early as this summer tho not likely. Don't know two much about the neighborhoods out there

  4. You get a lot for your dollar out there especially rentals. Lots of inventory. Actually too much to choose from. Looking to buy if I make the move but just checking things out at the moment.

    1. They pretty much bore me but I've gotten to the point that I realize for every movie I drag my friends too that they might not have interest in I should probably give the same service back.

      I've seen quite a few "bad" movies now because of this policy but I guess that's what friends are for.

    2. Yes - friends.
      Even a guy who is as much of an asshole as I am sometimes turns an acquaintance into a friend. Strange huh?

      Doesn't happen often - I'd say probably once every 3-5 years.
