I've been eating protein bars for breakfast all this week, don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

I'd forgotten how good Marmite and shredded raw cabbage sandwiches are!

Although my sarcasm-o-meter is turned off today, I'm going to presume the worst. Therefore:

Finally closed on Oregon property yesterday. There was a snafu because I haven't been employed at my current employer for two years and my quarterly bonuses aren't guaranteed, but I found a new lender. Anyone want to rent a house in Eugene, OR,for around $1,900 per month?

That's an extra $250 month in rent if you so desire.

Nice! How long are you looking to rent it? Does it come with a ganja garden in the back? I'm lookng for a place now and damn, I've been off the market too long. Places are expensive! I only have to love around here a year and then I'm retiring and will know by then of I'm leaving the state or not. I feel I need to work one more year so I can wait until I'm 66 to clam SS and Medicaire. Then I might be able to afford a place from slum lords like yourself. ;) :D I'd be happy in the house.

They certainly should be at £500 a pair.
