Naturally you had the bag with fries in it, and the lens in a supersized coke cup, right? Look legit and all the part :D

ha, that actually wouldn't have been a terrible idea.. less oil on the aperture blades that way.

Cool, do they have boots to hold the model upside down? :)

I'm so over this snow.... like, seriously. What a crappy day, again.

I'm over it too! Especially when I finally arrive to work after a two hour commute on public transportation only to find more than half the company decided not to come in.


This studio looks nice to me, and that's low money if you had a bunch of people to go in with, or if you actually made money doing shoots...

Seriously man, couldn't believe this guy...

Sorry to hear about this! I personally had 2 types of experience on CL - absolutely fantastic with nicest people showing up, having a laugh, a chat, a cup of coffee or two AND a complete disaster when they start bargaining at the last sec after the goods are in their hands.

We hunted for a house for close to 2 years on MLS (buyers market or not)! With a proper school district a priority we felt that anything under $700 000+ was not good enough (I wanted a renovated, move in ready home, my husband was way more realistic)! $700 000+!?!?!? Boston & burbs are so overpriced! Crappy townhouses for upwards of half a mil!?!? We are not NY or CA either. Now we have a fixer upper that eats away every penny! At least the chance to pile up on the sweat equity is limitless :rolleyes:

I've made a point to donate my fair share before but since having kids I came to believe that some personal example of help would make a better imprint on them. The money concept is somewhat abstract for them... I've been looking into those "volunteer vacations" - anyone had them?

Scott, if it's not too late send me the link also!

No idea what part of town it's in. There's a second listing for it that's a bit more... looks like the same location at a glance.

This guy Hector has had it up on Craigslist for about a year now. There must be a catch.

No, never done that. Provided support to things like "Engineers without Borders". Stuff like that.

Don't even get me started on home costs here in Massachusetts, specifically inside of 128. I realize we were looking in Milton/Quincy/Dorchest​er and they are direct suburbs of a major city - Boston. I get that. I know we will be paying more than say Lee, Massachusetts. Obviously.

When i watch HGTV and i see these palatial mansions in Texas for $220k and the people are complaining it's too expensive, i want to hop through the TV and smack them. But then, there are always two sides to a coin right? Those Condos in Manhattan that are 750 sq ft that people pay $2000. a month for... i guess someone else always has it worse.

But still, house prices here are ridiculous. I appreciate that my wife and i have jobs and being so close to a major city will ensure that will remain the case. But the price you pay sometimes is insurmountable to the return.

The worst part is that everything is expensive. House work, hiring contractors, landscaping... it doesn't end.

Since we've moved it's been raining and snowing non-stop every week. Looking forward t enjoying the house in the summer, so that i don't have such a gloomy outlook like i do, particularly on days like today.

Grrrr.

Exactly. I had lived in my father's house after he died. We replaced the roof, the windows, the boiler-twice due to flooding! The water heater! It truly never ended, we got out. I couldn't deal with the flooding year after year, Melrose has an entire section that floods, pretty much every house in the neighborhood has sump pump hoses leading from their basements...

That would be a pretty sweet deal. Most people I know pay over $3k/mo for a condo of that size in Manhattan.

Just refinanced my parents' house in NC. Can you believe it? Their monthly mortgage before escrow is $440.

I just wish salaries kept up with mortgage prices.

I'd love to move down to Maryland as I've got family down there. It doesn't hurt that they're into real estate and they've been wanting all of us up here to move down there for decades.

Both my aunt and cousin told me they could get me into a 3 bedroom 2 bath for between $700-$800 a month mortgage payment with next to nothing down on a 1/2 acre lot(minimum). Even better is the fact the company I work for has a sister company down there and the folks I've spoken with about it are pretty certain I could just transfer down and keep my rate and time in.

That would be livin' the dream, an hour outside of D.C, three hours out of Virginia Beach, five hours from the Outer Banks.

The very best part of it, no more of this God D**n snow!


Christian.
