I've also noticed that.
This also applies to the Dog.

There have been times when the alarm cat stuck his nose in my face and started purring when I wished he had a mute button.

I'm onto the second cup of coffee and almost done with a bagel with cream cheese. I'm just now starting to feel okay. Maybe something will get done today after all.

My newly-rebuilt Tower PC is behaving itself [so far].
Just the job for the observer with a coffee. . . .

Hi.

I can sympathize about pets. The dog is getting older and likes to wake me up at 1:30 to go sniff and see if he can remember how to piss.

I like my coffee blonde and bitter...

Guess Iíll have to get it myself.

Oh no, I started to work on my geek story and a plot bunny attacked me and I've been busy writing a new one that's nothing to do with geeks. Camus, Malraux, a student and her lecturer. OMG. Oh no... the clock is tocking! I am ticked.

But... I can't stop writing it!

Except when I stop for coffee!

Existentialism in a space suit, why not? Better than a pony in a space suit.

Two stories, one deadline - I can't see your problem, Chloe. Stop time wasting, write, girl! My shares in Verbatim keyboards are dropping faster than a runaway car on a space elevator.

A horse in a space suit? Why? Design and build a mechanical horse that doesn't need a space suit. That doesn't shit by the gallon and doesn't require hay, which is hard to grow in space, I'm told.

Fresh coffee for the evening crew.

I must have overdone things. That nap slipped up on me with a club.

Ah, the mechanical Horse [didn't the Greeks have something like this ?]

Coffee after Breakfast; a wonderful invention.

Was wishful thinking. Someone made a cool story of it, though.

Is hasing "Angry Orchard - Crisp Apple Hard Cider" to lure brain into resting sos can sleep. Should probly has an espresso instead - is more relaxing.

Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man confused more than anything. Good morning all. Yes, i know it is earlier than anything but I'm awake so I'll make the coffee.

I might take the day off after I get my morning writing done. Fishing maybe.

The shares are moving back up. I rewrote the entire start of my geek story and it's rolling along. That little plot bunny sidetracked me long enough to think thru my geek story and rebaseline it.

And wow, house prices in Melbourne are steep. $2.8m Aus$ for a 4 bedroom 1 bathroom Edwardian villa in Richmond. I'm afraid I'll have to write that best seller to afford my holiday home in the Southern Hemisphere.

Wow. That must be one hell of a bathroom.

Here's a link to the listing with photos and a floor plan... nothing special. Rather pokey and the bathroom is .., tiny. Basically an old inner city house that's been restored and partially modernized. I got curious.....

I didn't see the interior space listed anywhere. As near as I could figure from the floor plan, the main house is about 2050 sq. ft, excluding the attic.

It's a cute house.

I looked at a couple other floor plans for houses in the area, and they seem deep (front-to-back) and narrow. They put bedrooms at the front of the house, so the main entrance is on the side of the house.

Richmond Melbourne is pricey but remember AUD aren't 'real $' (2.8mAUD = 2.1mUSD) and prices vary enormously based on precise location. Richmond was a rundown inner suburb but a lot of the early migrants from Vietnam settled there when it was cheap. Those early migrants were largely from the Chinese minority in Vietnam.

If you want a dream getaway look up say Cairns in Queensland - dirt cheap tropical paradise. And stay away from Sydney, it makes Melbourne look inexpensive!

I know all about that chinese minority from Vietnam - my cousins in Adelaide did just that - so one great-uncle & great aunt went that way, another set ended up in San Francisco and my grandparents ended up in Kansas. Some stayed in Vietnam, so we're all over and I have quite a few australian-chinese-vietnamese cousins. Except for some reason the aussie one's ended up in Adelaide rather than Melbourne or Sydney.

I took a look at Google Streetview and it looks like that villa was done up fairly recently coz on streetview it's pretty rundown. The rest of the street is a real mix of rundown, a few rather dilapidated villa's and a lot of smaller one narrower houses plus some new builds going in. So the most expensive house on the street... a bit of gentrification going on there from the look of it. Handy to downtown tho and it looks like a nice area to live.

I poked around. That house has nice curb appeal. I'd be surprised if they got their asking price at auction. I think the realtor might be surprised, too. Who has a four bedroom, one-bathroom house? And why? It's a home for one or two who don't want to entertain.

This is the impact of Chinese money moving into Australian real estate, buying in hard.

You'd be surprised what this old housing stock is going for nowadays, in the right area. I reckon they'll get what they're asking for - auction clearances are still high.

I looked at other listings in the same area. They're expensive, usually around or just under $1.5M. A lot of them don't have great curb appeal. Actually a lot of them look shabby from the street.

I get the locally high values, but I think the property that Chloe pointed out may be imaginatively priced.

What a nice expression; the capacity of English to be expressed in what might otherwise be called a 'Euphemism' is pure magic.
In the interim period, I feel a coffee coming on.
