This article about single female homebuyers is really pissing me off. I've owned my place for nine years as of this month, and it's been one of the most difficult things I've ever done. The author mentions that if your partner can't handle you owning a place on your own, you dump him. Or charge him rent. 'Cause getting a check from your lover once a month doesn't affect the relationship; no, not at all. Or make him/her feel like an interloper or anything. And clearly this woman's never seen the housing prices in my part of California. The median home price in this county is $295,000 right now. How exactly do you qualify for that on the $35,000 salary she uses as an example? Grr.

Fuckety fuck! I was stitching together the shoulder and front pieces of Puppy Love tonight, the most simple possible endeavor, and managed to screw it up to such an extent that I might have to rip out a couple of rows on each piece and reknit them. Did I mention this is unmercerized cotton and shrinks dreadfully? Craptacular.
And I decided to not have dinner with that guy--the timing could not be worse. I wanna be able to actually like someone first. Besides, he's 38 and a lawyer. Far too grown up for me. Restaurant openings are not nearly as appealing as a ball game and a beer. Or tickets to the Bowie tour in January.
