Well, we saw the inside of the house today. The landlady was very friendly and showed us around, pointing out things that we wouldn't have seen, and then let us roam free. Honestly, the inside was even better than it looked through the windows. The place feels brand new. There are a couple of snags: First, no garage door opener (not even a handle on the outside of the door!), so we'll have to pay to get one installed; second, no dogs allowed, so I get a cat and Kelly gets a cat; and three, we have to wait 48 hours to see if we get the place. That's because she wants to run a credit check. I told her straight up, I don't have any credit, but I have enough money to pay for the entire year's rent up-front if that would settle the matter. It didn't help. I'm not particularly worried about the credit check, more that people who look like better tenants than us will apply in the next two days. Blah. I don't like waiting and worrying. I really want this place.

PS. In the title of the entry, I alluded to bad credit, which is Kelly's side of the problem. But on the application, I put myself as the primary occupant and Kelly as the secondary occupant, so if my money's good, we should be okay.

Having a large bank account should make a difference, it always did for me in the past. I hope that everything goes well for you two... it really sounds like a nice place to visit! :-)

Nah, they won't fit in the toilet. We're gonna need a kiddie pool. (Kitty pool?) :-)

Album of the Year

As 2004 draws to a close, I wonder what is some of the best new music you heard this year, if any. The general consensus around here is that popular music is terrible artifice these days, but surely there must have been one or two really good albums you heard? Go »


Any comments on the infamous $65 million pair of pants? I would like to think there's a tiny chance this judge has filed this lawsuit to point out the absurdity of the consumer protection law, but his refusal to speak to the press cancels out that theory. Go »

Eventual One-Hit Wonders

At lunch today, after KISS's "Rock and Roll All Nite" came on the radio, we began to catalogue musical acts who scored numerous hits in their day but you only ever hear one song from any more. Go »

Round XXXII Tournament

It took until the very last day of the round before we could declare all 24 names in the tournament, but at last the time has come: The brackets have been randomly populated with the 24 top-scoring players of the round, the four goos have been prepared, and we are ready to rock. Go »
