House Update [Apr. 3rd, 2001|10:10 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
The lady that rents the house out called back and we all went over there at 6:30 to check it out.... looks even cooler inside than it did from the outside. I cannot believe it's only $1790 a month (for the 3 of us)... seems incredibly cheap for how nice the place is. It's double what I'm paying now, but it seems like way more than twice as cool.

I won't list the three dozen cool things about the house yet... it's not for certain that we've even got it yet. We faxed in all three of our applications and gave her $20 each for the background check fee. We should hear back from her tomorrow, and then I suppose we could be moving in as early as this weekend, if not already on Thursday if things go well.

A girl from Tennessee is moving into my room. Some frickin' hot ex-sorority girl is likely moving into Kenji's room ... I guess she was really eager to get it and is asking her parents tonight. Chuck's roommates are pushing him out the door because they have a friend they want to take his spot.

Man, I can't wait.

We're going to use one of the large living rooms as a study, with all our computers in there, around the walls (all windows, overlooking Lake Washington) ... damnit. Must stop talking about how cool the place is until we get it. I was even going to be happy living at a few of the other places we looked at, but now I don't think anything will compare.

Okay, back to NBGS.... I just wrote a ton of code (working for an hour without compiling) and then I went to build it and it just all worked. I love it when that happens.

Yo Brad Man!

Looks like your just down the road from Billy Gates, guess you two will be hanging together now your in the hood, swaping puter talk while knocking back a cool one on his dock or your deck.

Looks good man, hope you get it, wanna see you in happy digs you have earned it.

Good luck!

PS. The reason the rent is so cheap, you got a hit man living next door,("Vinny the Knife" lives there.) Just keep your tunes down, don't piss him off and you'll be fine!

Re: Yo Brad Man!

Didn't know BillyG was in the area. Can't be too close, though.... I'm sure his house is quite a bit nicer than ours. :)

I think he is down on the lake, so you'll get to look down your nose on him.

Gates sucks. He's not a LiveJournal member.

1800?

1800 a month is cheap? That's about 400 more than I pay a semester (and I don't pay for any utilities). Ya I realize this is a house and most likely much cooler than my hole. but damn...
