Oh Dear God, I'm buying a house.

What the hell.

There is a place on Stone and Northgate that I like very, very, very much. (http://www.29onstone.com/) I'm having the realtor poking into the situation and seeing where things reside on this and how it looks to the bank and so on and so forth. I'm hoping that I can roll the closing costs into the mortgage or find someone who likes me very much to loan me the extra bit I'd likely be short. Stupid closing costs.

And.... now... for other things!

Studio Ghibli is the creation of two people - Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. Miyazaki is in discussions to create two more films over the next three years. His partner, though, will be making The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. This story is /also/ called The Tale of Princess Kaguya, which has been the source of inspiration for Sailor Moon.

Miley Cyrus will reportedly have a cameo in Sex and the City 2. I wasn't going to see it before and that changes pretty much nothing for me.

The rights to the Terminator franchise are for sale. If you have a few MILLION dollars laying around (like $32 million) they can be yours!

Primeval has been pulled back from the dead for two more seasons. This bodes well for the BBC continuing to be producing TV.

Stephen King has signed on to turn his novella "The Colorado Kid" into an series. It will be titled "Haven" and, unsurprisingly, the project centers on a spooky town in Maine.

Ed Norton says that The Hulk being in The Avengers movie is 'purely a function of time'.

I would have gotten in today if it weren't for the fact that someone had drilled the deadbolt and replaced the door locks as well as added a lockbox. So, y'know, I'm pretty sure I would have liked it on the inside. I did like what I saw of it, the bottom floor with the small 'bedroom' and half bath. Kris and I looked at a place a lot like this when we were looking for places to rent.

So, we'll see if I can go see it tomorrow.

Also, I need to talk to the bank about getting my credit extended since my 90 days have run out. I get the feeling there was something most I should have done there that I didn't but as soon as I can get someone to call me back, I'll get everything in order there.

And I'm using this icon because I refound this picture today.
So, tomrorow I'm going to go look at houses. Still not entirely certain if I'm going to be happy with how much house my money can buy me but looking at the stock price today, I might be able to put more down than I thought. Still, there are a lot of houses going for much cheaper than they should be these days. Maybe I'll fall in love. That's the whole point right? Still need to talk to current landlord more in depth about what breaking the current lease might look like.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/nba-nhl-playoff-2371615-series-game - Article on the NHL playoffs in general. "And sometimes there are multiple 20-minute overtime periods in the NHL that turn into classics, such as the Ducks’ triple-overtime and quintuple-overtime thrillers during the 2003 playoffs." Yeah. I remember those. I remember screaming about those. Freaking Ducks. GAH. And the part about toughtness makes me miss Stevie Y.

The rumor is that the cut of Wolverine that was leaked really IS the same cut as will be shown in theaters. Interesting. Well, I'm going to see it one way or the other. I'm expecting a complete cheese fest and to enjoy the heck out of it.

Matthew Macfayden has been cast as the Sheriff of Nottingham in the Russel Crowe Robin Hood. He was in Frost/Nixon.

"Batman: Arkham Asylum" comes out in June and I really, really want to play this game. The PS3 version will be coming with content that allows you to play the Joker in extra levels or something. I may have to watch someone else play those. It is nice to hear the Animated Series cast in the trailer clips.

Today you get Blue Lanterns! - http://dcublog.dccomics.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/bnln_0r-27-copy.jpg I really like these guys. Right now, this image is only visible in Firefox and not IE.

Kate Mara has also been signed to Iron man 2 and will play an unspecified role. There is a lot of speculation out there as to who she might be playing: Bethany Cabe, perhaps? Janet VanDyne? Lots of choices here.

In addition, NickToons are starting Iron Man Jr. (or something) cartoons today!
It seems I'm pre-approved for $250K with 3% down.

Not as much as I was hoping but not hideous, either.

So now, we do some looking and some scouting and some moving around of fianances.

Student loans make up the bulk of my debt and man, do they hurt. Ugh.

I feel terrifyingly adult. Emphasis on the terror part.
