Bloody Awesome

So, it’s a wonder to me sometimes that Mr. Wonderful is primarily Greek in his heritage. He says he has a bit of Irish in him, but I’m beginning to think that part is bigger than he thinks because the boy has luck like nobody’s business.

Seriously. First he gets laid off from his studio job, yet will continue receiving a paycheck through October. Then he gets a job right away with an extremely well-known director. Then he gets upgraded to first class when he’s flying out to London the first time. And now? Now this:


Because he’s going to be living in England for so long, the studio is paying for him to get an apartment. Given that the studio’s office is an hour outside of London, he opted to look for flats in Richmond—which is a 30-minute tube ride from the city.

He found a place he liked, and was all ready to rent it but then the housing coordinator found out that the person renting it wanted to stay longer. So instead, Mr. W gets this place.

It’s the freaking penthouse.


A 3-bedroom place, right on the Thames River; walking distance into the cute town of Richmond; minutes from a huge, beautiful park. The freaking penthouse.


Of course this is how it worked out for him. He’s Greek-Irish. I’m going to rub his head extra hard when I see him next month and see if I can bring some of that luck home with me…

Oh goodie!

It looks like there's room for all three of us in that big bed.

The thing is, you can't just look at it from his perspective. Take your own perspective into consideration and say, These are the sweet FREE digs I get to stay in when I visit Londontown next!

Big Sister said...

If i were you, I would be packing my bags right now and staying the whole time. Forget waiting for summer...

Big Sister said...

Oh, and I forgot to ask - how many guest bedrooms are there?

laura said...

Mel Heth said...

Mandy - Yes, and Fred can stay in the guest room.

Nilsa - Oh my mind is already there, girlie. I was giddy when he sent me the pictures.

Sister - Who will watch the cats and the worms? Should I take up a collection on my blog?

Laura - Haha well I'll be on a plane to visit in 3 weeks. Then hopefully there'll be a subsequent ride in July.

Sizzle said...

Jane Moneypenny said...

OMG, how is life fair?! You must be his good luck charm. =)

thecoconutdiaries said...

I think we should all pitch in some dough and have him buy a lottery tickets for us!

Wow, that was awkward said...

I can't really picture a keg party in there, but I'm sure it will be fine.

Dingo said...

I do hope that the next blog post you write is from that lovely penthouse suite because seriously girl, what are you still doing here!

julie desmeules said...

Bring the luck home with you? You need to stay right there WITH the luck!

Lara Watkins said...

Are you freakin' kidding me?! You told me it was awesome, but this is movie awesome! I'll start saving money for my early summer visit :) Love you guys!!

Mel Heth said...

JustRun - Haha. I'm working on it.

Sizzle - I'm visiting for a short time next month, hopefully with a longer visit to come.

Jane - Is it possible to be someone else's good luck charm but not have mounds of good luck yourself?!

Coconutdiaries - Not a bad idea!

WowTWA - Who needs keg parties when there's a pub on every block?

Dingo - I'm trying to make some moolah so I can afford to go stay there!

Julie - Yeah, well unfortunately Mr. Lucky's life comes with a price tag. I gotta have a job! :)

Lara - Seriously - you have to come visit. You could have your own wing in the house.

brookem said...

lucky guy you got there!

Amy Turpin said...

I think I'd sell my car and any other valuables I had and use that money to go over and join him for the entire time...you only live once!!!

Amy Turpin said...

If he's still getting paid through October, couldn't you technically count that as your income and his current job as his? Then you guys could still be a 2 income couple and everyone wins. :)

Hannah said...

Can I pack myself in your suitcase? I am so jealous! :)

geekhiker said...

But does he know how lucky he is? Wait, didn't they talk about this on "30 Rock" last week?

Semicharmed said...

Oh my goodness. That pad is amazing. Can you rub his head a few extra times for me too??

Mermanda said...

Of course he's lucky. He found you, didn't he? ;)
