Random Post Redux-Housing Search

 Thank you Kel for Random Post Redux!  Each Saturday she gives you the opportunity to post a "previously used post." 

Looking back at my old posts is kind of horrifying. Posts that I once thought were genius, after a few years aren't so impressive. 

Anyway, here's a post of mine from May of 2006. Enjoy!

Housing Search

Trying to find and buy a house is like trying to kiss a racoon. You know its going to be hard but not impossible...

It turns out to be a living hell and you end up with stiches on your lips. Well I'm going to have stiches in my butt when they stick it to me with the mortgage and the realtor.

Every aspect of it sucks. You're constantly double guessing yourself, and you always wait out to see if anything better comes but it only gets worse and you feel you missed out.

At this point I feel like I've been searching FOREVER and I'm never going to find anything, and if I do find something its going to be a 150,000 dollar 2 story dorito bag under the expressway!

I'm getting desperate.


  1. The dorito bag reference cracked me up! It is a nightmare looking for a house. I don't want to do that again any time soon. Thanks for sharing this gem of a post:)

  2. I love the opening and ending. This story can be cut and pasted for anyone looking for a house. Great redux.

  3. wow, you've been blogging for a long time girl! Good for you!!! ANd love the Dorito bag!

  4. Yeah I think I was about 19 when I started this blog, and before this was this cheesy yahoo! geocities webpage. Its still up, and sometimes I go and check it out even though its HORRIBLE! some of the stuff on there just cracks me up. I guess that's the great thing about blogging. Its like storage space for memories. Helping you never to forget.


I love your comments!
