Boom, Home: Acquired

1815 Madison St
1815 Madison St (Living Room)

Well, well. Looky here. Those dudes accepted our offer, and we’re tentatively closing May 26th.  Scientist is a shrewd negotiator;  I wouldn’t want to have to sell him my house.  For those who are way interested, we’ll be walking through the house on Thursday morning with our parents- stop on by if you want to check out the place.

Based on what we’re hearing from our current landlord we may be moving in a blaze of glory between May 26th and June 1st so that we don’t have to pay rent for June, July, and August.  I’m conceiving a Moving-Party-slash-Memorial-Day-Cookout-Spectacular.  Raise your hand if you’re down- and no, you’re not forced to help us move, just show up for a hamburger.

  1. which offer did they accept? 450? do i owe k-car any of my dick?

    what kind of trubbdget are you working with? i’d buy used speakers and subwoofer on craigslist and a used 7.1 receiver, and get a new optoma hd66. should come in around $1100, +$20ish for a sheet of fabric, and another $15 on 2x4s to frame it in.

  2. Come visit dude! (After June 1st)

    Beautiful day today- the sun is going behind clouds at the moment and we may have the Storm of All Storms.

    The final offer was $460K, seller has NO right to cure, and they pay closing costs. Scientist’s idea was probably better, but we’re not sure they would have gone much lower than 460. Long story short- I’m happy with the outcome, now we have to get inspections and shit to ensure everything is as we think it is.

    I drove wwhazz and lawman past the house yesterday so they can give their impressions if they wish.

  3. i did the same calculations when i made my house offer and they took it as designs and i still wonder if i could have gotten it lower… you’ll always wonder no matter what, but i’m pretty sure they take 454,4… they know they would take 460… 1% is not worth risking the deal… you’re not a dick, you just think it’s worth 454,400… 435 = you are trying to sweep in and steal their HOME…. now they feel justified standing ground.

    i’m drunk in an airport bar playing 2-4 limit up $100 in 20 hands.

  4. New house is COOL!

    Small yard, but BIG house. Family-ish hood, but we can cause trouble in the basement.

  9. house is pretty cool from what I see on the outside. the alley has great potential. stickball!

  10. Speaking of houses and spending money– the Sportsman 4000 was pressed into duty last night and performed admirably! With water coming into our pit at a significant rate, and with the storms that rocked the area bearing down on us, the power went out…

    “This is what we trained for, people!” I shouted.

    I ran downstairs, grabbed an extension cord, plugged the sump pump into it and fired up the Sportsman. For two hours she ran without hitch until the power came back on. No manual bilge required.

    Whazzy– buy a generator for your new house. Just do it, man. You’ll thank me later.

  11. menards has a 3500ish generac for $300ish… i might spend more to support racilla industry.

    k-cizz, is your basement basically useless? it sounds like you have serious water flowing down there… is it all over the floor, or does it just seep along the walls or what? can you store anything on the floor? right now our basement is completely dry… i hope it stays that way… i have serious trubbin to do down there. water + trubbb = badddddddddd

  12. We need to pull the cord on the old generac and bring some power to our detective agency. We really flooded the basement on the spider case.

    Our new case, from jsonline:

    Four sought in big-screen theft
    By Gitte Laasby of the Journal Sentinel

    April 11, 2011

    Milwaukee police need help in finding four teens who stole a 50-inch television from the community room at Westridge Apartments, 7901 W. Glenbrook Road.

    Four teens entered the locked apartment lobby entrance on April 2, police said Monday. They rang several apartments until someone buzzed them in. They walked into the community media room and removed the Toshiba flat-screen plasma TV from the wall mount and left through the same door, police said.

    Police described the suspects as black, 16 to 18 years old. In addition:

    • The first was 5 feet 4 inches to 5-5, 150 pounds, and had a mustache and wore blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a gray jacket with a hood.

    • The second was 5-6, 150 pounds, and had short hair, wore a black Trix jacket with a large Trix rabbit logo on the back, black pants with white design on both pockets and earrings in both ears.

    • The third was 5-7, 160 to 170 pounds, had a mustache, dread-locked hair, a white Milwaukee Brewers baseball cap and a black sleeveless T-shirt, khaki pants and black shoes.

    • The fourth was 5-5 to 5-6, 150 pounds, and wore a gray Milwaukee Brewers sweatshirt with a hood and blue sleeves, black pants and white tennis shoes.

    Police released surveillance video of the suspects Monday and are asking anyone with information to call (414) 935-7360.

  13. Those dudes are going to be sooooooooooo pissed at that Trix coat wearing mother fucker.

    Some MPS English teacher just did a spit take of coffee after readign this, for sure.

  14. Hey-O,

    So I obviously was way off on my goal of checking in to whazzmaster at least once a week… I’m a dick.

    Anyway, congrats on the house… sounds awesome. Jen and I put an offer on a house in Baltimore County about 2 months ago… it’s a short-sale, so the sellers accepted but there are two loans and both banks have to accept within 90 days or we’re back to the drawing board. Our offer was $80K less than the owners paid 5 years ago, so if we get it we’re getting a damn good deal… if not, oh well.

    Zach – I’ll probably give you a call this week, but I thought I’d give you a heads up here… I’m going to be in Racine this weekend for Spring Break, then heading up to my Mom’s on Monday (4/18). If you’re around, maybe we can meet up for lunch or something… let me know. If not, Jen and I will both be in Wisconsin again in June, so hopefully we can see the new place then.

    Madd, how’s the baby?

  15. Wow, netflix did a good thing: all trailer park boys 1-7 are in one place. No more season by season crap.

    The Dirrrrrty burger.

  16. baby is perfect. i feel very lucky and blessed… well beyond what i thought was possible.

    yo cal, how do the hot new tracks stack up against first and fifteempf? atm? i got a few more i never released… “every dick in my mouth” about a girl that wants every single dick in the world in her mouth at the same time, and “titty fuck ya girl” about titty fucking a girl until her breasts are ruined… like, bloody ruined. destroyed.

    we might have too much fun.

  17. madd–thanks for encouraging wwhazz towards fatherhood.

    also it’s FRIDAY, FRIDAY, gotta get down on friday, everyone’s lookin forward to the weekend!!!

  18. A new boss at Levy Pants, a third runner up on the Apprentice or some such lunchmeat, has me off the project and on the streets. I was told “good job” and I have a new line on the resume and a reference, but they are hiring a full time person, no more contractor. “It” as they say, is all over.

    Corporate wwhazz very much enjoyed his cup of coffee in fast paced world of coupon finance, but it is back to basement of the ivory tower with a 20% decrease in position and a -13% decrease in wage on the remaining 80%.

    No worries. I will compensate by working the land even harder. Asparagus is planted and the garlic is shooting up. Next: peas and Brussel sprouts. And: caterpillar husbandry.

    To quote my good friend Ignatius Reilly (who has a linkedin profile fyi: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/ignatius-reilly/8/377/264)

    It’s nacho night on Segoe, boys. I’m getting fucking drunk.

  19. ricky stomped randy a few times already… even with his pants off. I BET IT ALL.

    how to make money: 1-2 LIMIT HOLD’EM

  20. i’m not encouraging anyone to do anything. i just tell the truth.

    my dick is gigantic.

  21. Sons of Tuscon is on netflix instant watch. I checked out the first two episodes. Sarayu hen pecks the shit out of Lo Truglio.

    Madd, did you see what netflix did with trailer park boys, the series? It’s arranged episodes 1-55 instead of by season.

    I hope they do it that way for star trek. So much easier.

  22. i was watching them on sunday with my brother and they were the same as they used to be… he had never heard of it before… i think he liked it.
