One Red Paperclip Now a Homeowner...

http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.com/

We've got a house.

It's "official." I'm going to trade one movie role for one house with the town of Kipling Saskatchewan. But nothing's official until Dom and I go to Kipling and shake hands with the Mayor. Dom and I will be in Kipling on Wednesday July 12th to shake hands with the mayor of Kipling, Pat Jackson, and Bert Roach, Kipling's community development officer...and probably a whole bunch of other people as well. Then it'll be official - without the quotation marks. (Funny enough, I actually held my hands over my head and did those "quotation mark" thingy's when I typed out the word "official" the first time. Please don't ask me how I managed to type the word "offical" with my hands over my head. Unlike trading one red paperclip for a house, I still have no idea how I did it.) Anyhow, this is gonna be so much fun. We're going to seal the deal on July 12th - exactly one year to the day I put a picture of one red paperclip on this site.

one red paperclip.
one house.
one year.

A great statement as it is, but you better believe the first thing we're going to do is paint the house red. Please don't ask me why I'm going to paint it red. Like the beer keg, I think we can all agree it's just one of those things that has to be done.

Kipling's *revised* trade offer, goes a little something like this:

That's unbelievable. I didn't really believe he could do it. Good for him, though. By the way, where the fuck is Kipling SK? Near Saskatoon or Regina? Being Canadian maybe I should know, but there are a ton of small towns in Saskatchewan.

New house

Very impressive. I thought he had stalled since there weren't any trades recently. I need to go through my kitchens drawers and see what I can get for an old ziploc bag. Any offers?
