Come on Arlene!

We made an offer on a house today. It's in Silver Spring's bright red (the color's growing on me and it would grow on you too, believe me).

I'm attached to the house and really hope we get it. It went on the market on Thursday and there are already several offers. We put in a very strong offer and our real estate agent (Arlene) thinks we're definitely in the ball game. All you out there in cyber-space cross your fingers for us. We won't find out until Tuesday if we get it, so we'll leave you (along with the two of us) in suspense.

We've been singing a lot of the Dexy's Midnight Runners this weekend. So, all together now: "Come on Arlene, Oh I swear (well she means), at the moment, you mean everything to me..."


  1. not to be picky but isn't it "Come on Eileen"?? Or is there an inside joke here I'm not getting :)

    Congrats on the house (well non-congrats til you actually find out)!


  2. Yes, the song is "Come on Eileen," but seeing as our real estate agent's name is Arlene...well, you get the point.

  3. Haha I totally missed that line. Wow that's what I get for being a nerdy blog fake editor. !!
