I took sheenaqotj on a lovely motorcycle ride down Felter Road outside Milpitas on Saturday. Forgot to mention. I always like nifty winding motorcycle rides, and taking a passenger who hasn't been on a bike before is always nice. Didn't see her again before she left for Austin, though.

Still, it was good to see her. I hadn't in several years. And overall I had an extremely productive weekend.

Looks like I'm going to check out the last bits of the house, the ones I haven't seen up close yet, tomorrow. That'll be good. There was a dog there last visit so I couldn't inspect fully, but if it's comparable to the quality of the rest of the house (and it appears to be, looking through the windows) there won't be any problems. I also get a significant veto period even after the offer is official where I can cancel without penalty, but I'm hoping that won't be necessary. We'll see how it goes.

Say you've got enough money for bizarre Japanese designer boots, and an old portable game machine, but not both. Imagine further that your illegal drug budget dwarfs both, or that you're simply naturally insane. What would you buy?

You know, I like that house.

The one I'm thinking about buying.

I know my second-choice house would be nicer in, like, five years if I could come up with the money (well, other than the lack of a proper garage). But at the risk of seeming shortsighted, if I'm going to scrimp and save and so on for a house, I want to like it. I like my current first-choice house.

Anyway. The illustrious capnkjb has now seen the house and can potentially report on it. And I've properly looked at the garage and the back yard.
