Portents at Kinkos

I was going to title this post "Signs at Kinkos" but that was too much like an ad for their banner making services.

Anywhoodle, I could not make this up if I tried. Today we signed all the closing documents for our house in Fullerton, California. On our way to Kinkos to copy them and FedEx them back to our escrow agent, we drove through a torrential downpour. As we parked we heard tornado watch sirens. We ran into Kinkos, found the copier located farthest from the windows, and started photocopying. What song started playing on the sound system? Albert Hammond's "It Never Rains in Southern California."

That's so crazy.

So, you have a house?

Well, not like you have a house. We can't drop by and fantasize about our future there. Technically the closing isn't officially until June 6th. And then we gave the sellers three more days to move out. And we're not going to be in the state until the 18th or 19th. But theoretically our agents or assigns could drop by and fantasize about our future there starting on the 10th. And I believe the electrician will be doing just that on the 11th.
