House things @ 06:15 pm

We received three offers on the house. We sent out counteroffers, and got some responses, and just a few minutes ago, we accepted one of them. It's not signed, sealed, and delivered, but we may have just sold our house.

On the buying front, we made an offer on the hipster place. We've received a counteroffer. I expect there were a lot of offers, so they're probably fishing for more money. But I figger -- hey, these people are hipsters... Let's send in the same offer, but we'll put a bird on it. It's a lock.

We dithered on the coke palace with a view, but ultimately we decided not to make an offer. And there's more fish in the sea at open houses this weekend.

Make it an owl. Hipsters dig owls.

Congratulations. And good luck! (But I'm bummed about the coke palace.)

When you put a bird on it, did you tell them that you were on a budgie?

No, we took hagdirt's hint and put an owl on it. We chose a Pulsatrix perspicillata, because they've probably never heard of it.

That way if they turn you down the owl can strangle them with its feet, and puke up piles of bones and porkpie hats when it's done eating them.
