What Swear Word Are You?

Here's a great little quiz:

brought to you by Quizilla

And, because I know you're a cheap, sensation-seeking crowd, here's my result:

Your word is BUGGER. You are generally quite
restrained, but sometimes your anger or
frustration come to the surface and it all
comes out. Yet you somehow can't stop sounding
polite, despite it all.

About time for a change

Although we've got something lined up for a new house to be built, it's not to be denied that it's going to be built in September 2006 or so. It'd be lovely to move into a new house sooner than that and get out of this one, which is pretty crampy. So we spent the weekend looking at houses in Eugene. That was a lot of fun. Being with the Babe is pretty nice and we got to drive around town a bunch together. We actually saw a charming house that we'd have liked to get, but it didn't have an office area for me and it was on a street that got fairly busy so we couldn't have let the cats out. Honestly, for a house that was on a pretty busy street that we couldn't have let the cats out of, we'd have gone for this one. This one's an old craftsman house that's at the busiest street and intersection in Eugene, right at 7th & Jefferson where the freeway offramp pours into downtown. Noisy, noisy, noisy. We may go see it on a "just because" basis, but it clearly would be torture during rush hour.

But it's nice to have a house backstopping our searches. If we don't find something we like, we can still build it with an actual professional builder.

I'm going to be busy for the next few days, so don't expect an update (but I may surprise myself and do one anyway).

Have a lovely week, y'all.
