    House hunt will be transforming from fun looking at zillow, to actually going to showings, soon after I get married this fall.

    Crazy how expensive my area is, Eastern Massachusetts is a shit show. I 3bed/2bath cape/ranch 30 miles or less from Boston is generally, at least, 450K.

    So, having changed some fittings, I have learned a couple of things about my place:

    1.) The old wiring for the heating has been done in a really frustrating way.
    2.) The back boxes for the switches and sockets are crooked in the wall, which gives the appearance of a fun house.
    3.) Chrome toggle switches look the shit.

    I love my Dyson Cyclone V10, but it's also $600. I just find myself vacuuming a whole lot more with it, since it's cordless. With a corded one, you're constantly unplugging and moving it around.

    With this, I just take it from it's power supply, vacuum downstairs real quick, and put it back on the charger. The next day I'll do the same, but upstairs. It's just quick, convenient, and cleans up really good.

    Fitted that big bastard and its three brethren over the weekend. Pretty pleased with how it all went. Learned some unusual things about the construction of my flat.
