Condo update

I guess I can't be arsed to find a picture without the arrows.
We are the yellow arrow though! 
I realize I never reported on the results of our condo NOISE TEST! (See How to make your possible future neighbors think you are a freak for more on that.

Anyway, our future downstairs neighbor was there during the inspection, working from home. He was already playing music - sort of 1920s jazz, which oddly fit the period of the place. Anyway, I was like, can you play something with a bit more base? For our test? He promptly switched it over to the Beastie Boys. Yes, I thought, this will do nicely! I asked him to crank it, and we ran upstairs and...only the faintest strains of music. It was so wonderful. So awesome. SOLD!

Anyway, now getting our ducks in a row for the closing, which happens on April 22nd! And we move sometime in May. My big thing is to have book #3 done by then. Mostly done. Then move, then another polish. Woo!!

When is the house-warming party? :^) Beastie Boys and beer, right?

What an awesome guy to do that for you.

Good luck with your closing and have a great move. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to breeze through book #3. (I'm getting ready to start Double Cross today.) =o)

lustyreader said...

congrats! and your noise test was just a super-sleuthing-cover-up for you to approve/disapprove of your neighbors' music choices, wasn't it?! jazz and beastie boys, quite the eccelectic combo, i like it!

Carolyn Crane said...

LOL thanks! Yes, I very much approved of the eclecticness of my new neighbor's tastes. And so relieved about the quiet upstairs.

Chris said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the new place! What direction does that corner face? SE?

New digs are always exciting, no matter the stress and the exceeding upheaval with moving. Glad things are moving along for you.

1. Congrats. Yay for new condo.

2. I think it's a good sign that you new neighbors can swiftly switch from '20s-era jazz to Beastie Boys. I say this is a plus.
