The Impatient Procrastinator

April 27, 2006

So I talked to this dude last week about refinancing my condo to see if I could get some cash out to buy a car…er…do some remodeling . And the end of our hour-long meeting, he said I would hear back on my loan and interest rate options in 48 hours. He used those words exactly “forty-eight hours” (twice!). It is now, not including weekend time, 120 hours later and I’ve heard nothing. I hate hearing nothing when I am waiting for something. I want it now. Granted, I procrastinated my ass off in getting in contact with him in the first place, but now that I’ve sucked it up and gone ahead with the initial paperwork, I want to know NOW.


As the days progress I am getting more and more impatient. I think a driving reason is because I found the bedding of my dreams and I want to know if it would be practical of me to purchase it instead of continuing to scrimp and save for a new car. Now by new car, I mean a different car that is not the one I currently drive, as opposed to something shiny, pretty and insanely expensive, reeking of monthly car payments. I mean who wants a car when they can have down bedding swaddled in pretty orange 260TC cotton to come home to and cuddle up with every night? So email me back dude, before I take back the normal things I said about you after our meeting last week and go back to hating you and thinking of you as a paunchy, short, dim-witted, wanna-be man!

    I was all set to say “car! car! car!” but then you said the bedding was orange. I mean, how can you go wrong?

    God, I totally could have written this post.

    Please tell me you will have fun things hanging from your ceiling too. That would be so cool!

    make some nice extra cash secret shopping. Just go to the site below
    and put in your zip to see what’s available in your area.
    I made over $900 last month having fun!

    Wanna-be man?

    Hmmm challenging his manhood to get a quicker response? “What kind of banker are you? Getting a girl all worked up and then NOTHING?! THAT’S IT?!”

    i-66 – Yes, it’s orange. A subtle orange. But subtly is needed in the bedroom–it’s still pretty though!

    Spark’mous – You are doing a refi too? All while desperatly wanting a new duvet cover and pillows instead of a reliable mode of transportaion?

    rah rah – If I don’t have to save for a car, you better believe that this girl is getting a four poster bed with swingy things hanging down over me!

    Anon – Perfect! Screw the refi!

    Rich – He balked at coming to meet me in the city because it was too confusing! I mean, grow some balls dude. Pshaw.

    Love the bedding, I just got new beding a few weeks ago, but the dogs have taken over and it is not so pretty anymore. I got Blue!!! 🙂 It makes me happy, so does Orange, I think we switched colors over the years, no?? Do you really need the car, I guess to see the family huh?

    The phone works two ways BB! While it may piss you off to do so, call this person up and tell them to get off their lazy a$$

    Harms! I still love blue, but orange has taken over. Curious, huh? And while I don’t use my car everyday, my social situation would go down hill pretty quick and Bug would end up hating me for always bumming rides from her (wait, I do that already! Love you Buggie!)

    Phil – I had emailed him w/ no response! That is, until just a few minutes ago when he said he’d “check on the status”. Rarrr.

    Can I tell you that you have now made it to the top of my favorite blogger list because you just responded (snarkily) to an anonymous spam-commenter.

    Wow that bedroom in that pic is spectacular!

  12. April 27, 2006 6:21 pm

    rah rah – You just made my day! Yes, I’m that easy.

    Chase – Isn’t it? I should have linked the photo. It’s West Elm. I just added a link on the side bar. And I lied. It’s 230TC not 260.

    Marsh, I forgot to award you 20 bonus points for use of the word “Paunchy” Not a lot I know, but every little bit counts.

    There’s nothing like starting off a post about refinancing your condo – which is very adult like – with ‘so I talked to this dude’

    I’m sure he went back to his office and said ‘so there was this chick who needed her condo refinanced’

  15. April 28, 2006 4:13 pm

    Ooh, I like that bed!

  16. April 28, 2006 6:44 pm

    I should have known it was West Elm…I love that place/catalog.
