This week has been a rough on my end, but loaded with lots of rumors regarding everything from Dark Angels to Orks. Normally I do not discuss personal events, and I will not go into detail here, but this week truly sucked ass.

Presence of Faeit is my weekly editorial. I generally report during the week what is going on, and today is my day to comment on what exactly it is that I am thinking of.



What sucked.
First off I want to thank the people that I have been in email contact with this week. There were many that know I am in the process of moving and several that sent good wishes this way for that move to my new house.

I did not yet get the house. I have paid for it, I have packed, hired movers and a truck, and still no house. I was supposed to close on Monday, but on the sellers side, a Californian Notary missed a vital signature. This sent the house past its evaluation date even though the notary tried to correct their mistake by overnighting the signature. (so we missed the evaluation deadline by 11 hours).

Because of complete and total over-regulation (this is not the blog where I am going to into all those details, but its the horrible, and this is just one part of what has happened in this.), I now have to wait for the seller side to do another evaluation. There is no recourse on my side. Thousands of saved dollars are sitting in limbo because of this, not to mention the money we lost for the move and time we lost from work.

My 40k is buried beyond reach in boxes. I have not been given a new closing date, and only told it will take at the minimal 2-3 weeks for them to do this. However starting this whole thing over (which took 12 months since offer) can take a rediculas more amount of time. For not I am living out of boxes, and have no way to reach my models.

I am going to get everything back on schedule, with the weekly articles hitting at the proper times. So the BlogExchange, Pics of the Week, and more will hit at their proper times. Already the week is loaded up with articles, that were started, but no enough time was available to get everything posted.

Its also quite possible I missed an email or so during all this. Don't fret, I will try and get to them ( I read and try to answer every email I recieve). If one or two were completely missed, I apologize, resend.


Until then, I am itching to get in a game. No models are available for me yet, but hopefully this all gets resolved quickly so I can get back to my standard couple games a week.

  4. I do hope it gets better, moving house is stressful enough without the bucket of crap you have been dealt! Good luck and I hope you get it sorted. Stiff upper lip old boy!

  5. Spent 3 1/2 months waiting to complete on my house. You have my sympathy, it's always more annoying when it's not your fault but there's still nothing you can do about it.

  7. Ach, that's some seriously bad karma that hit you man; my sympathies. I'd say give the Notary points for trying, but damn, that's a big FUBAR. Hopefully it'll work out for you sooner rather than later.

  8. Too bad mate, but as always there is wisdom in Calvin and Hobbes. "When life throws lemon in the back of your head make lemonade". Not sure what it says in english but that what its translated to in danish.

  9. I feel your pain, Natfka. My minis are still packed in boxes from my recent move. What's more, the contractor didn't get our closets built on time, so I'm still living out of boxes and wearing the same 3 shirts that were lucky enough not to be packed too deeply.

    I'm sorry for your hassle and I applaud your dedication in continuing with this blog despite your real-world hassle. We all thank you for it.

  11. Your friends/enemies don't have more than one army? I know you would be out of your element most likely, but a game is a game. Make some calls, see if someone will let you borrow their other army when you play them.

  13. Sorry to hear that, Naftka! I've bought and sold 2 houses in California over the years, and one each in WA, UT and AZ thru my travels & travails, and by far CA is absolutely the worst place to try to do this life-necessary task. As you say, far too many regulations. You have my deepest & sincere sympathy & empathy. Best of luck getting it all straightened out...

  18. Damn :(

    I'm sure that here in the UK once you've exchanged contracts and finalised a moving date you're (more your solicitor I think) held liable for a lot of cash if it goes wrong due to an oversight at your end and people can't move because of it.

    Whichever party missed that sig should have to cover your incurred costs :(

    I hope it gets resolved ASAP dude.

  19. Good luck on the real estate resolution. Last year I began the process of purchasing a bank owned property. They kept beating around the bush after terms and for two months kept pushing back closing. We later discovered they didn't even own the home, some guy in Ballard did. We were lucky to have an awesome agent and broker who covered all our costs during our arrested transition. They heavily suggested we ask the company to cover our costs as well, you might also be able have some kind of recompense. This way you can get back to the important things in life, IE 40k.
