So! Few months back, I had to go in this crazy "land ballot", where new blocks of land to build a house on (I'm jack of renting, you see) are dished out via lottery. I missed out. Today, another was held, and my number was drawn! So on Monday, I trudge into some government office, and have to part with a sum of money I'm not comfortable parting with. Then, I shake someone's hand, and become a member of the landed gentry. Kinda exciting, but then, kinda sad. It's an awfully grown-up thing to do.
