Plan B


Josh found this listing, and pointed out something I didn't see right away: "Mmmh. A foreclosure that is empty except for a red, 1-gallon can of gasoline." Whoops.

Buy now! Won't last long!

I always wondered what the term "fire sale" meant. Now I know.

For some reason, i keep thinking of that scene from the movie Orange County.

"and she was like "I hate my job, I'm gonna burn this mother down!" And I said "You better not... you better not!"

Los Arboles...let's see...that must refer to the only 2 trees planted on this lovely pink complex.

That poor plastic hanger, left behind. It looks so forlorn. "Will no one ever hang me in a closet again?" it wonders.

So many movie references in this one. For example:

Photo 1 - the theme from The Odd Couple starts up.

Photo 11 - "You really think God reached down and stopped these bullets?"

Photo 16 - the toilet used in 2001: A Space Oddessey.

Pink is the new black.

One thing that would depress me is buying a condo that doesn't have a washer and dryer. Do you really own your own residence if you have to haul your laundry around outside?

One could argue you don't really own a home so long as the local tax authority can put a lien on it if you don't pay them ad infinitum. Or if you have a mortgage, you're just renting the home from the bank.

I love the toilet on the wall in the last photo.

I read the title, then looked at the picture and all I saw was the hanger, I thought the worst. I'm Sorry.

Uhh... when I read "Plan B" I immediately thought of the pill you take when you break/don't use a condom..... then I saw the single coat hanger.

hummmmm

I would be concerned about the apparent slope to the building and wonder if it is on a cracked foundation. The wall to the left looks vertical, however the floor and wall separation measure out of plumb.

The vertical toilet tribute for the space shuttle is an awesome touch.

My parent's neighbors rented their house out while they were away (Foreign Service). They had to evict one renter for whatever reason. The neighbors had asked my mom to walk thru the house with the real estate agent after the renters left. They found a can of sterno (cooking fuel) and a can of some sort of oil on the stove that was turned on. They turned off the stove, left the house and called the police. We were shuffled further down the street to another neighbor's and the bomb squad arrived on our quiet little street to go thru the home. From what I remember, it was one of the kids that did it - he was my age and had already be caught playing with fire (burned his brother's leg with a lighter and can of hairspray).

Wow, what is wrong with me. I saw the title "Plan B"...and my eyes instantly raced to the clothes hanger,then headed straight to abortion.

Now I can't decide if I should feel stupid or ashamed. :(
