Life

Life, The Universe, And Everything Status Report

I hate everyone.  I'm going to bed.

(As I hinted in my earlier post, I'm being kicked out of New Pixy Central, because the place is being sold.  Again.  I promptly got on the internet and looked for a new place to live.  There's nothing remotely suitable in the area.  The block I live on must have a hundred town houses - I live in a complex of 18, and there's similar complexes each side and an even bigger one behind, and more down the road - and not one of them is available for lease at the moment.  I did find two brand new townhouses, both larger, nicer, and cheaper than my current place.  Unfortunately, one's in Bowral and the other's in Ringwood.  Bah.)

(Actually, I'd happily move to Bowral, except they only have Telstra for internet.  Telstra.  Fuck.  The number one go-to telecommunications company, if you're looking for absurd prices and obsolete technology.  I could get iiNet or Exetel on a Telstra line.  It'd be slow, but significantly less sucky than Telstra themselves.  Sigh.)

2 Any luck?  We got kicked out of a townhouse like that once.  They gave us a month - the bastiches.

3 This is the third time in three years I've been kicked out because the house I was renting was being sold, and the house I'm in now was put on the market last year and I had people coming through for six weeks before the owner decided to hold onto it for a while.

At least they've given me two months notice.

I might actually end up moving to Bowral.  It's a very nice area, and a lot cheaper, but it's 90 minutes from the Sydney CBD.  I'm going to talk to my boss about working from home 2 days a week, which would make the commute bearable.

4 I guess they don't have much in the way of renter's rights down there, eh?  Some years back the apartment building my mom lived in was sold.  They told her to move out.  She told them, "bite me".  There wasn't a damn thing they could do about it.

5 Well, we certainly don't have that level of renter's rights!  They do have to give you 60 days notice.  Used to only be 30 days, which was a bit rough.
