You know that Jared asshole from Subway? I wanna be that guy, except for Taco Johns. I'm not sure how the logistics would work, but I think thats what I want to do from here out.

We made it through Mexican security (which isn't exactly as tough as ours) and caught our flight from Cancun to Memphis. So we get to Memphis, and you have to go through Immigration and Customs. So you get off the plane, go downstairs to a weird baggage claim, get your bags, get in line to check your bags again, go through TSA security again, and back into the air port. Only problem is that our bags said "memphis" on them, not minneapolis and we only had one set of boarding passes. So we go through all the security and ask someone what the hell is going on and they just kind of laughed. "you gots to go get your bags from the baggage claim and check in again." So we had to go get our bags, and check in for our flight (which for some reason wasn't a connecting flight like everyone elses) and go through security AGAIN (grand total of 3 for the day). Then we find out our flight doesn't leave until 7:20pm (and its like 3 now and we've been here since 2). So we're going to be in damn memphis airport for another 4-5 hours.

Oh my is Cancun a good time. I've swam in the ocean, layed in the beach, swam in the pool, layed by the pool and stuffed my fat american face with all the food and booze I can hold. If you ever plan on going to mexico, do it and go all inclusive. There are 12 bars and restaurants at our resort, and we can take a shuttle to any of the other resorts that they own and eat and drink and swim there too. Every 50 feet there is a bar by the pool. I've drank like 40 pina coladas and about 35 dos eqis so far (and its pretty much day two). Gooood times. Tomorrow we're taking a power boat jungle tour at 3pm, so we're going to wake up around 10, eat a bunch of breakfast, swim, drink, then go drive powerboats through the jungle. Peace.

T-Minus 4 days until Fox is married away forever, so get your offers in soon. Prime real estate, good rates still available, get in while you can.

Here is a sort of animated video explaining the 10th dimension (which I believe is part of the string and super string theory) - Video I got lost around the 7th dimension or so, but its a better explanation than I've heard previously.

Well, everything is coming along with the house. We had the inspection and found a few issues, nothing major. There were 3 windows that needed to be fixed, a couple of trim boards that need to be replaced, the top panel of the garage door is cracked, and there is an issue with the patio door's frame. We figured about $1000 of repairs if the patio door doesn't need to actually be replaced. So we asked for a price reduction of $1000 and they took it.
I got the mortgage taken care of on Friday morning, and let me tell you it was no fun. The rates went up DURING our meeting, but I made them honor the rates they came in with. But regardless, we went around in circles for like two and a half hours. It sucked, and I don't want to do it again. I'm pretty sure next time I get a mortgage I'm doing it over the internet with ING or HSBC or something. Anyhow, its over with. There was also apparently some issue where the seller called my agent bitching and demanding the inspectors number. Apparently he thought the inspector did something that caused some water to come in or some shit. I don't know, we'll see. I'll update when I find out more.
