temptation rears its ugly head... [Nov. 29th, 2001|11:46 pm]
Roy Janik
God help me, I'm in love with a 160,000 dollar house.

Well, if I take on 3 tenants, and don't eat so much...

I guess it would hurt to just go look at it...

Oh pleae, that's insane, afterall, what would one such as yourself need an Office/Gameroom/Workshop area and large back yard for anyway? What possible projects could you have going that would need all that dedicated space?
Where is Vanderbilt circle anyway?

It's in east Austin, which I certainly don't approve of.

Northies all the way!

Whew, for a second there, I thought it was in South Austin...I would have had some things to say about that!

Roy, it's time to turn your back on your Southie/Eastie past and be with people of your "own kind"...

*Pulls out carrot in anger*...

Some folks like water,
Some folks like wine,
But I'm a Southie...
So go drink Strychnine!

Well, if I convert the gameroom into 2 bedrooms, and the office into a bedroom, and put 2 people to a bedroom, dorm style, and charge 300 bucks:

300x 2 x 6 = 3600 bucks. Then I can quit my job and just lord over my kingdom.

In central Jersey, a $160,000 house would basically be a shack on stilts.

Seriously.

I've seen 'em.

But it has a WORKSHOP...Wouldn't it be so cool to tell everyone "Okay, I'll see you all later...I have to go work in my WORKSHOP now..."

You should make it a workshop of evil. Build all sorts of crazy things in there, like assassin robots and assassin lasers.

Agreed. If Roy gets a house with a workshop, I'll rent from him, just so I can "not" work on instruments of death. Or, I could get a job at Sandia.

But, Roooyy...It's a WORKSHOP...Think of the possibilities...

It will fufill all the Shop-class fantasies that you've had since middle school..Like building a birdhouse or bookcase with your initials on it..

DO IT!

i've got an idea; instead of a "workshop", it'll be a "sweatshop". along with renting the house, you can hire refugee kids for 10 cents a day to make your own 'Roys Toys' products and sell them to neighborhood brats for 20 times the labor cost. as a bonus feature, you can also start a "save the children" campaign by advertising the kids at work (unknown to the public that you employ them) while you're crying in front of the camera about their horrible condition. the cost for commercials will pay for itself through the hefty donations you'll recieve - the only portion of this money that should actually go towards the kids, is the purchase of a bullwhip to keep their little asses from slacking off. indeed, you've got it set...buy the house and start Roys Toys as soon as possible! Move quickly, because the time is ripe; at the northern boarder of Pakistan, you'll find all the children you need. Employ them before Toys r Us does, or the dream is lost.

Re: DO IT!

I like the idea of "Roy's FUCKING Toys!". Maybe make the 'F' backwards.

Re: DO IT!

It's funny mainly becuase the post indicates Roy should start hiring immigrant kids for 10 cents a day without even taking into account the 6 Filipino manchild servants he already has at just a nickel a head. I guess their job titles would be different though.

Oh, you obviously haven't heard what he's been using the Filipino manchildren for yet...

Re: DO IT!

I just heard he got a deal on the lot.
I think they are like 8 cents if you buy them separately.

One more thing...
You might think twice about getting a house with those creepy cameras in like everyroom. Espcially when they broadcast to the net.
Or...with all those bedrooms and locations, that could be your home based business if you catch my drift.

Five words for you..

Alright, it's six.. that fucking house is awesome. If you buy it, I'll kick your ass. If you don't buy it, I'll fucking kill you. That house would be like 800K-1.5M around here.

Well, you know, I offer a 6 month cut-rate on rent to newlyweds... provided you share a room.
