My mad conversation for house purchase hell

Solicitor - you need a letter of reference

Adrian - what kind?

Solicitor - one personal and one professional

Adrian - ok, I'll get these

Solicitor - oh and one from your bank too

Adrian - OK, same kind of content?

Solicitor - oh no, much more complicated

Adrian - OK so how?

Solicitor - have your bank manager call me and then charge you for the service

Adrian - great, thanks!

Solicitor - oh and I'll need to mail you the example letter, but I'm not going to tell you that, I'm going to wait until your bank manager tells you

Adrian - oh nice, this is fun

Solicitor - when you mail me them, I'll probably cause trouble, charge you extra money and just general act like a pain in the arse OK

Adrian - yup, works for me

Solicitor - oh and I'll drop in LOADS of industry terms like "deed of covenant" and crap like that to confuse you OK?

Adrian - roger that

Solicitor - OK so all clear then?

Adrian - why didn't you tell me about these letters last week so I could have got them done before

Solicitor - it wouldn't have been HALF as much fun now would it?

Adrian - I guess not

Solicitor - got all that then?

Adrian - yes, did this set of emails also cost me money

Solicitor - let's call it 50 bucks right?

Britney is here

WYSIWYG editor

Once your have set your blog up, writing is a breeze with the basic WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. This is a pretty simplistic interface but it’s nice and you might find that it’s all you need. If you feel you do want a bigger canvas to craft your blogs on then you can use Google Docs to post to your Blogger blog – plus, if you are up for it, you can even get your hands dirty with some basic HTML editing.
