House hunting

Two of my friends are buying a cute little house down here in New Orleans (congrats Nick and Lauren!), and while I love my little rented shotgun, it's so much fun to imagine buying my own place someday. The New York Times real estate section does this series on what properties are available for certain prices--properties for $440,000 (this house is my favorite), properties for $600, 000, etc. Kind of a bang for your buck thing. Their latest, and my personal favorite, is properties for $300,000. I'm smitten! And I've decided that I want to live in this houseboat on a lake in Seattle:

How great is that? It's two stories and has a cute little kitchen, as well as a view of the harbor.

It also has a loft bedroom, and even though I'm one of the clumsiest people I know and would probably fall out, I love loft bedrooms!

I'm taking a day off today (sort of), because this week's exams kind of wore me out. As did celebrating the end of them last night. Thank goodness for recording software, so I can listen to the lectures in pjs, with two sleeping kittens on my lap and a cup of coffee in my hand. Happy Wednesday folks!

Sounds nice, but come on Phelps: a view of the harbor? Why on earth look at the harbor? Look at the lake. The loft is really nice; are the guitars included?

Which way does it face? More specifically, would you get either sunrises or sunsets over the lake? Cause that would be awesome.

That house in Maine is awesome! The houseboat is cool too. Would you have to get in the lake once a year and clean algae off the bottom?? Thanks for the shout out about our house!
