Saw this  and I totally had to share.  UP is one of my favorite movies of all time.  And a team from National Geographic’s new show, “How Hard Can It Be?” was cool enough to try this for me

Villa in Anadalucia by McLean Quinlan Architects

Saw this on Diggy’s blog (<- i am still not convinced that he’s writing this blog on his own).    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a house like this for me and John.  I mean who wouldn’t right?

Just saw the season premiere of House.  And once again, my real world crossing paths with my tv world.  Lin-Manuel was a quirky character on the show.  Fairly certain it’s not a recurring character but it was good to see him regardless.  And yes, I also concluded that House is 100x better than Heroes.

John and I are officially moving today from this house where we lived for more than 3 years.  It’s bitter sweet really but looking forward to what’s in our future.  Saw this for the first time this past winter.  Thought it gave the house alot of character.

Here’s my gorgeous find from Etsy.  I just wish you could wear these outside.  I’m not sure if I could get myself to spend $50 for something that will be collect cat hair and nobody gets to see….

John and I pay $1200 for rent.  We have an entire floor of a house, backyard, garage, driveway, storage, porch, and washer/dryer in the unit.   And if I drive to work, it takes me 20 minutes door to door and mass-transit takes me 45 mins or so on a good day.  This may not mean much to most people, but this will be shocking figures/description for most people living in the tri-state area.

We would love to be here until we have enough saved to buy a house but our landlord just sold the property and we have been apt hunting for the past 3 weeks.  Not an easy process.  Although the rental market is good these days, we had such an incredible deal that it’s hard to beat such figures.

But here’s something couple of shocking things that we realized while apt hunting.  First of all, we are not able to find these “out-of-this” world deals that everyone is talking about.  But more shockingly, we are finding out that ALL landlords just LOVE us.  Mind you, some of them are willing to overlook the fact that we have FOUR cats that will be sharing the apt with us, even when the actual ad had said “NO PETS”.  We were experiencing the “positive” side of racial profiling. 

Yes, it’s a good thing for us, but we were also able to sort of grasp what it would be like not to be Asian, not to look yuppy, and not to speak English fluently.  This is the reality.  We are aware, but also the lack of progress we have made is a bit daunting.
