Refreshing... and fruity!


Nope, there's nothing wrong with the pool. Why do you ask? Oh, the color? No, no, that's fine. The pool's filled with Midori. It's supposed to be that color. Cheers!

P.S. While making sure that Midori was the green liqueur I was thinking of, I found this recipe on their website. June Bug? Mmmm, beetles. Drinkable beetles. How delightful.

I'm not sure what's more disgusting, that pool or the "QF Shooter" from the Midori website.

QF Shooter:
20ml(2/3 oz) MIDORI
10ml(1/3 oz) Irish Cream Liqueur
(Float Irish Cream on top of Midori)

:P

Looks like someone started renovating and then gave up.

What? Having a "green" swimming pool isn't a good thing?

I see the stove was smart and ran away before it was abandoned.

I was thinking Jello, actually. :P

Oh, it's liquor? Darn, I had my hopes on Green River.

I like how the chlorine floater is still in the pool. It takes some time for a pool to get like that. Therefore, that floater has been in that nasty sump for quite some months.

It makes me think it wasn't a conscious decision to let the pool fallow. It was just laziness.

Gah, I'm surprised the real estate agent didn't use some photoshop "magic" on that pool color. However, judging from the rest of the house's condition, I wouldn't bother either.

The whole house looks like someones crappy weekend renovation project gone horribly, horribly wrong...

Hey, when it's a foreclosure, lots of times, "souveniers" are taken - sinks, stoves, door knobs etc. LOL At least they tell you upfront that it's a fixer upper. And, isn't green the new black?!

I think if I had been the real estate agent, I would have just said there was a pool and left the picture out... yikes.

Look at the bright side. The scary pools are the ones so green that you walk up to them and monster bullfrogs jump in to escape you...and you can't see them on the bottom. I speak from experience on this.

WOW! That's fantastic!
I noticed the same thing Jodi did. Seems some counter tops got the hell out of town before it was too late also.
If one was to float something red in the pool, maybe some candles it would be very holidayish.

I feel at a distinct disadvantage, all pictures at the listing having been removed already. That's what I get for missing a few days. These hot properties are moving fast!

You forgot to file for vacation time, Marytoo. We just went on without you.

Don't worry! The slithery thing with scales only surfaces late at night.
