The Green Photography Experience! Day Two and House rambling
Note to various new readers: I post FREQUENTLY, multiple times a day. Often inane things (like this!). Beware.

Some late poster last night and a few people got a jump on day two! Again, we have increased participation size. Soon I'll need to find a new venue. :)



Photos!

In me news, we meet with the mortgage broker today to discuss financing. I'm worried that our eyes are way too big for our budget and that we will never be able to afford the house we want to build. But, mortgage payments, interest rates, sacrificial alters - these things are strange mojo and who knows how the numbers will actually fall. It's possible he'll tell us we can get all the house we want AND keep the payments under budget. He could also say that we could barely afford a hovel - but it could be a tricked-out hovel, with natural gravel flooring no less.

I know exactly what I WANT him to say, but he'll have to volunteer that on his own. I guess I'm hopeful but resigned. I don't want to bolster hope to far for fear of major let down. I'm also unwilling to settle for a less-perfect house of the floor plans we chose. I already feel vaguely like I'm settling were we to chose the one story plan we absolutely loved - it has a "plant ledge" which I heard as "cat perch" 10 feet up in a vaulted ceiling living room - which is hardly settling when you're only giving up a second story, something you only vaguely considering important.

So, dies that leave me at ambivalence? Excitement and dread? I fear I'll explode.

But don't worry, if its good news, I'll twitter the shit out of it this evening. (You are following me in twitter, right? Geez. ABMann)

So, when I went to check out madtownmichelle's picture, flickr was all "OHMIGOD ARE YOU SURE OUTSIDE FILTER SOMETHING SOMETHING!!!" and then it was... really nothing I would expect to be filtered. Very green.

You're probably signed in. I got a "you must be signed in to see this photostream"... which is probably a default setting that madtownmichelle has chosen.

Oh. I never sign out. PHOTOS IS MY LIFE!

You with the poking... gosh.
Have you always been this fiesty?
abmann From: abmann Date: April 29th, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Na. When we were in class together, I had so little self-confidence to be this feisty.

Oh baby, don't say that. It hurts when you lie. And Jesus kills a kitten.

Listen, I was much too busy critisizing the Intro Chem curriculum and flirting with ChemGuy to notice anything else.

As for Jesus... I thought the kitten killing was reserved for masterbation? I guess this means I have to double my count.

What's a twitter and how do you twitter shit?

You need to simmer down. Simmer down and pick a sweet new theme for me to make food based on.
