|12:08 am - Operation HouseHunt results: Four applications, one very nice agent, and a case of sunburn.|
So, today was the epic house hunt. altheas, fa11ing_away and myself spent quite a bit of time wandering around Melbourne, checking out assorted and varied houses. And visiting several Real Estate agents to pick up keys/deposit applications.
The first place we checked out was a one in North Melbourne, which had a good location, but was a bit, well, crappy. And involved rather too much climbing of stairs.
But, it was on the second floor, to everyone's amusement.
The second was out in West Brunswick, and was rather nice, despite the inopenable gate. However, living there would mean a bloody long time travelling to Uni each day, so not so good.
Nest, was an open house, which turned out to be the most perfectly perfect place I had ever seen. It was just so gorgeous. Sadly, we were informed by the (rather nice) agent, that the owner refused to accept application from students, 'cos he was a bit of a bastard. (And I must agree with fa11ing_away, also quite pussywhipped)
I mean, apparently the last lot of students had damaged the place, and the owner was furious. However, from what we saw of the place, if they call that damaged these days, my parent's place would push the guy to suicide.
*rolls eyes* Prejudiced bastard.
Anyway, then we headed back to the agents, to deposit keys, and fill in applications (At Woodards, the place fa11ing_away and I saw the other day, and the first two from today, and at Chambers another place that we didn't need to see, because we know it's good - long story)
So, of the four applications, hopefully at least one will come through. *crosses fingers*
Also, I ended up the day with some severe sunburn. Now I am all owie.
Oh, and passionfruit-mint Tic Tacs have got to be one of the strangest tasting things ever. They make my mouth boggle.
PS: fa11ing_away, remember to go to the inspection tomorrow. If it looks good, grab application forms for all of us, fill out your own, and drop two for altheas and myself in my mailbox.
And text me so I know what's going on.
