OK, This Is It

The time is here to look for a new flat (and sell the current one). Probably at the worst possible time, when I was starting work on the big new thing, Karolina told me that, yes, it's definitely over, and we have to do something with our flat situation.

Instead of working, I now spend my days looking at property ads on the Internet. I am shocked at how ballsy the property companies are, advertising for example "excellent municipal transit accessibility" for a flat that requires you to go to the end station of Metro (25 minutes from the city center), then 5 minutes by bus and then 10 minutes on foot! Based on this, I suspect there is not a single flat in 10 km radius which doesn't have "excellent municipal transport accessibility". They could just put this picture on all their sites instead:

I now see it's rather difficult to find a flat for my needs. I'd like the smallest number of rooms possible (preferably just bathroom and one huge room), nice view (I'll be working mostly at home), accessibility for small dogs (not a lot of stairs, some grass to take them for a walk) and, most important of all, excellent municipal transport accesibility.

Yes, this is wide-spread typing error. In all adds should be "sport" instead of "transport".

Obviously you need to study the proper dictionary first :)

Well, Fuxoft, it's sad, but at least you can properly enjoy this Roy Orbison's classic now

I'm feeling with you - we splitted with my girlfriend a few months ago...
And I'm more and more realizing that this really works: "women don't know what they want and they don't give over until they get it..."
But we'll survive! And eventually find the right one:)

Cheers, J-dro
