GAAAAAaaaaaah! @ 09:59 am

Rebecca and I have just put in a bid on a house.
I just forged Rebecca's signature and initials about thirty times on the 12 pages of legalese involved in making an offer.
I just wrote a check for TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.
I just put an order in to sell some of my stock in order to cover the rest of the still-hypothetical down payment.
I just heard from our realtor that there are two other offers on the house.
Keep your fingers crossed, and direct evil thoughts toward the other bidders. Those bastards are trying to move into OUR house!

Frightening, awesome, and enviable!

Oh, and what everyone really wants to know:

What are the house's live game possibilities?

Well, yeah -- that is, after all, one of the most important factors to consider when buying a house. One of the reasons we really want the Youngs to move up here is because then we could do a full weekend-long, three location live game (they're looking at places more or less walking distance from both us and the St. Laurents.)

That's pretty exciting -- and you guys haven't even been looking that long. Good for you!

I wish you luck (and wish ill to your competitors) and hope to welcome you soon into the International Brotherhood of Homeowners. Meetings are on Tuesdays.

--Randy, whose new home will sadly never see a live game...

Well, I figure there are enough hard-science types in Enigma; someone invent a damn wormhole already!

Actually, do you have a "Mills" brand megamall out that way? We have the Ontario Mills here, and Shawn was in one in Phoenix and said it was an identical layout, so we think they're transdimensional outlet shopping malls which exist in several locations at once. The trick is figuring out in what order you have to visit the stores so you can chose your exit destination.

Oh, and I just bought you a housewarming gift, so hurry up and buy the thing, move your boxes and have a party already.
