OH HI GUYS WHAT ARE YOU DOING



Probably it's because I read 1984 at an impressionable age, but this listing (found by Susan) is giving me the creeps. Why is the TV watching the bed? Why won't it go away? Please go away, TV. Please give the nice people some privacy.

P.S. I know I've been sent this before, but I can't find the original e-mail or any post I made from it. So apologies to whoever sent it. And more apologies if I'm repeating myself. And I apologize for that parking job -- I really could've done better. And I'm sorry that I don't always wash the empty containers properly before I put them in the recycling bin. And I'm sorry that I'm using such small type here. It must really be hard on your eyes.

Never mind the TV. Why is there a mirror propped up next to the bed? Who would want to watch themselves fall asleep? Oh... wait a minute...

It's a cute house, and that's not even a bad price by Seattle standards. It's been on the market for a few months, maybe they should PICK UP and take more pictures?

I have a question for you Seattle dwellers, and Washington citizens in general. Sarah has a ton of Washington listings here, for obvious reasons, does no one in Washington have air conditioning? Is it just never, ever necessary? It seems like even the poshest places come without it. However, in overhead Google views there are sometimes in the ground pools to be glimpsed, suggesting it does get hot. I'm confused.

Anon: air conditioners are rare here. One of my neighbors has a window unit, and I can't think of anyone else I know with AC. I might run in the wrong circles, though.

There's a week or two every year when it would be nice to have AC, and the occasional OH MY GOD heatwave, but that's it.

I don't fancy that TV landing on my legs in the middle of the night.

The placement of the toilet/mirror in the bathroom is also unfortunate.

I like it.. They've taken all the guesswork out of how my clutter will look there.

Yes, it was hard to read the tiny type.

The TV wants to make sure you have a doubleplusgood day :)

It was hard to read, Sara, but we like you anyways ;)
Oh wait. No we don't.

I almost forgot about that parking thing.

Thank you for the answer, Sara and I apologize for sticking an H on the end of your name! I guess I was too enthralled by the entire air conditioning question to ...uh...have any manners. Oops. Mea Culpa.

Hi, I'm the Susan who found the listing. Long time lurker, first time poster, etc.

I don't fancy that TV landing on my legs in the middle of the night.

That's what caught my eye, because we do get the occasional earthquake up here. I can't claim that I've done everything you're supposed to do to quake-proof my house. E.g. I've got bookshelves not bolted to the wall, because we're renters, and I don't want to have to unbolt them in another six months if/when we buy or move to a different rental. But none of those bookshelves are looming over my bed, waiting to crush my feet in my sleep.

Huge TV at foot of bed, mirror propped up next to bed... I'm surprised there isn't a swing hanging from the ceiling!

And the nightstand is facing the bed--not next to it. That's weird. Maybe for easier drawer access... You know, for bible reading?
