7725 - Friday, at last.

Well, I liked what I saw, and if the bank agrees with me, I'll be living there come the end of October. If not, well, it was a good try. Finances will be a little tight, because a lot of my cushion will be expended in the down payment.

It's a large one-bedroom with a huge screened porch on the third floor. The place was built in '69, and is in very good shape. Cinder block construction, seems nice and quiet and fairly hurricane safe. It's about 4 miles North of my old place (and Newton's first home - No Nose Maldonado's) in Pompano.. and the Strip Mall of Sin, and the Mall of the Dead.

Random cool factoid - a family of about 15 iguanas (including one HUGE yellow-orange male, must weigh about 40-50 lbs), and a few non-ugly (read - non aggressive or loud) ducks live by the fountain.

I may go to the club tonight and chomp the buffet there to celebrate. We'll see how I'm doing.

Moment of Lyric - mp3 - via

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman!

All the world's waiting for you... and the power you possess.
In your satin tights, fighting for your rights
And the old Red, White and Blue.

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman.
Now the world is ready for you and the wonders you can do.
Make a hawk a dove, stop a war with love, make a liar tell the truth!

Wonder Woman, get us out from under, Wonder Woman.
All our hopes are pinned on you and the magic that you do.

Stop a bullet cold, make the Axis fold,
Change their minds, and change the world.
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman.

You're a wonder, Wonder Woman!

Peanut Butter and Honey on whole wheat toast is good breakfast eats!

7726 - tag, I'm it!

Smacked by sedefendendo

I have to list seven of my favorite songs of the moment and then harass seven more people into doing it too.

Current faves -  (for mp3s of most, check this mp3 tag)

  • Rubber Biscuit - Blues Brothers
  • Three Little fishies - Kay Kyser
  • Big rock candy mountain (assorted artists!)
  • Mesopotamia - B-52s
  • Shock the Monkey - Peter Gabriel
  • Sugar Magnolia - Grateful Dead
  • Sheep, Sheep, Don't You Know The Road - Bessie Jones

Well, I won't hassle anyone, but I'd like to see what's on other folk's musical minds.

More quiz-type time benders.Collapse )
