In thrall to The Man

I think I've just borrowed my life away. You know the ads that say, "If you haven't refinanced in the last five months, you NEED to look into an incredibly low-low-LOW interest mortgage loan from Carcharadon, Crocuta and Sapiens!"?

Well, I didn't go quite that far, but I've gone completely to the dark side anyway by applying to refinance my house. They call it all kinds of things, but it's a mortgage. Mort-gage. Anglo-French, from Old French, from mort dead (from Latin mortuus) + gage security.

That means I'm engaged to make payments on this thing till I die. And all for a new bathroom.

Eeeeek.

Yes, and I'll die all clean and swirly from the bathtub jets.

Would it be too grim to name my new bathroom Marat?

Yeah, it probably would, huh?

Watch this space for before/during/after photos. (Because someone else's smalltime remodeling job is ALWAYS so fascinating.)

Eh, you can't take it with you, why not enjoy the lurve of a beautiful new bathroom in the meantime? Drowning in debt is better than drowning in a crappy bathtub, I say.

Look at me, encouraging debt with mindless abandon! Just call me a Republican....
