Time to move.

I didn’t feel well enough to go to knitting tonight, but I had to Get Out Of The House before I went mad. Also the baby wanted frozen yogurt.

So I went to Larchmont, which is not terribly far from where we live and has lots of little shops including a Pinkberry. Now, I don’t really care for Pinkberry. If I want frozen yogurt with toppings, I go to Menchie’s. But I was not about to drive to Studio City for a fucking yogurt, so I went to Pinkberry and it was absolutely fine.

The problem was that once I had the damn yogurt I didn’t know what to do with myself. So I just walked down the other side of the street looking in closed shop windows. And I’ll be honest, it was kind of boring.

Then I got to the real estate office. They always have these ridiculous mansions for like $3 million in the window, and I love giggling at them. Today, though, most of the listings in the window were for condos. BORING. Finally I found a house. Not quite a mansion (three bedrooms, 1.75 baths, office, bonus room, etc.) but a decent house. Just under a million. And what’s this? It’s a fixer. “Bring your architect!” it proudly advertised.

Let me recap: A FIXER UPPER FOR JUST UNDER A MILLION DOLLARS.

I swear, the instant we have enough money to pay off our more crippling debts, we are so out of here. Canyon Country, here we come.

    I briefly looked at real estate in a California city I thought I’d like to move to. AHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. I don’t know what I was thinking. Anything that was big enough to conceivably cram a small family into was a crumbled mess that cost $2M.

    But you have frozen yogurt stores – how can you even contemplate moving? Unless that is, you’re proposing moving to Scotland to open a frozen yogurt store in Ediburgh.

    Well, my plan is to take the money we will save by not buying a million dollar fixer upper and use it to buy an ice cream maker. And then I will make my own frozen yogurt!

    It sounds like that 80’s movie “The Money Pit.” On the plus side, you and your family will have dozens of hilarious mishaps if you *do* make the purchase. :P

    No need to go to Studio City anymore! YOGURTLAND, at 3rd and La Brea, is my new favorite thing. A ton of different flavors, all delicious, a billion toppings, and it is SELF SERVE at 30 CENTS PER OUNCE. Do I sound excited? That’s because I am. Last week I got exactly as much yogurt as I wanted with a whole lot of fruit and some cheesecake on top and it was $1.74. WIN.

    Oh MAN, I *love* Yogurtland! It’s SUCH a good deal!

    Also, I went to SnB last night – I KNOW! I’m sorry I didn’t see you two there (Uccellina and Annika)!

    Sadly, you probably can’t get a place like that around here for under a million.

    Ack. I am just going to invest in a Tumbleweed house with wheels on it. True story.
