One down

Well, the house is going to someone else - there were a lot of other offers. Back to square one.

  1. Aw...sorry to hear it. Something else will come along (and likely better), though. That is the nature of house hunting.

  2. Oh Funder, I'm really sorry it didn't work out.

  3. oh, i'm sorry. i cried two hours over a house we bid on - and we offered more money! but it slipped away from us. looking back, this place is better in almost all ways. i'm so thankful! but oh how i cried over that place.

    i even posted pics to my other blog, hey, that reminds me, what does emo have to do with livejournal?

    funder, i'm afraid i'm too old to have ever been "emo" but there was another word for it back then: )


  4. me too, same as Lytha. The place we "wanted" didn't work out...the place we GOT is heaven, and soooo much better than the other.

    You'll find yours, I promise!

  5. Thanks yall. I am pretty bummed, although I knew this was a good possibility and I was trying to not get too excited.

    Aarene and Lytha, I was thinking of y'all as I ate my blackberries at lunch! They are extremely tasty noxious weeds ;)

  6. Bummer about the house. :( As others have said, hopefully that means something better awaits you.

    I love house shopping even though I'm not in the market, so I'm living vicariously through you. LOL

  7. OH!
    Keep your chin up... hopeful that when you see the next one, you'll be so happy this one went to someone else!
    Sorry girl,

  8. omgosh funder, that korean fan death wiki was so funny! did you read the erroneous beliefs section?


    i've been to seoul, and it was plenty hot.

    i can't stop laughing:

    * That an electric fan chops up all the oxygen particles in the air leaving none to breathe. This explanation violates mass conservation and well-known properties of molecules and gases, particularly that known breakdown energy of oxygen molecules lies in the ultraviolet range. It also ignores the nearly universal human tendency to wake up whilst being suffocated in a moment of sleep. Moreover, the theory makes no justifications for how and why a person will not suffocate whilst awake in a room which contains an operating fan.

    * The fan uses up the oxygen in the room and creates fatal levels of carbon dioxide. An electric motor does not function by combustion; unlike a candle, the electric motor consumes energy supplied by the electricity, not from a fuel.

    well this way out-classes the germans, i must say. they seem to have specific reasonings behind it.

    and if you ask for a beer at the Namdaemun Market in seoul, you'll get feminine vaginal wash. it's happened to me.


  9. Hahaha, the German fear of drafts is almost as weird. I had no idea!

    I will make my husband order the beer if we go to Korea!

    This isn't quite new post worthy, but we're going to look at two more properties tonight. I'll post if I like one!
