Listing photos

I completely forgot to post the photos I took for the listing, not to mention the listing itself.

I accepted a bid 5 days after the house was listed and will be closing on June 28.

Who knew that this was academic?

My friend Laura is a PhD candidate in Sociolinguistics at Georgetown.  She recently had an article published wherein she analyzed my Facebook posts about the house and blog from December 2010 - April 2011.  I just read a copy of the article and it is a really great article.  If you like analytic linguistic articles, you can get it here for $31.50.

Don't worry, all of you who commented or liked the posts.  She changed everyone's name(even mine.  I'm Mickey), paraphrased comments, and there is no mention of the blog address.
