1. As you know, Defeater is on tour in Europe right now with Every Time I Die, Trash Talk, and Spy Catcher. Naturally, Jay saw this shirt and thought of me. He said he would bring one home for me. The truth is, at least once a day I utter the phrase, “I hate people,” or “I hate everyone.” It’s not exactly true — I hate when people fail to use their brains.
2-5. Today Jay and I put an offer in on this house. The sellers accepted. We close December 29, hopefully. Talk about burying the lead, huh? Today was insane. We put our first offer in yesterday, and the sellers came back instantly. Between pitching news and introductory calls for clients, I was immersed in a bidding war. It was thrilling, scary, and generally left me drained. But I am so excited. Jay and I can finally get out of the Kobe House and I can get away from #mynewroommate.
Plus, do you SEE that kitchen? Do you know how many delicious meals I am going to make in that kitchen? I’m excited that I won’t have to keep my spices in my closet anymore.
It’s a split-level with 1.6 acres of land and a barn for Jay to put his studio in. It will need to be built out, but we will be creative and make it work. We’re going to get a roommate once we get settled — so if you’re looking for a nice couple to live with in the middle of the woods, you know where the ask box is!
2011 has been the best and craziest year. It’s going to be amazing to settle in to one place, with my husband, and really start building our life together.
So, ladies and gents, I live you with this video clip. Feel free to begin at :45:
