Da Carnival! Da Carnival!

By
Real Estate Agent with 1

Carnival turns 36 and I am hosting the party.  I almost feel like I am about to have hundreds if not thousands  enter into my living room, I would ask you all to take off your shoes, but I think that might be a bit rude.  (just don't touch my breakables).

 Normally, the parties are held at my house and one of the things that my husband requires me to do is to take a few shots before my guests arrive.  He tells me to do this because I have this "thing" about having to have everything perfect as well as have everything ready before my guests arrive.  I  also want everyone to have the MOST fun here at my "home".  So a shot of tequila, Bacardi or straight rubbing alcohol will usually do the trick for my nerves to calm down.

Twoof Active Rainers took a spot on my picks - (Gentle reminder when posting from ActiveRain, please make sure that the post is a public post.  I could not include a few posts because they were made for 'members only'.)

Maureen Francis from miOaklandCounty presents 10 Things You Can't Do If You Want to SELL Your Michigan Home.  Maureen explains to her sellers what NOT to do when trying to sell your home.  I love the first line about FSBO's and the fourth one - WHY you should not under pay your agent.  Great article Maureen!

There was alot of entry's about the SubPrime Mess, But the one that stood out to me was Broker Bryant's article "See Sally's fall on the way to Paradise lost".  This is a sad realization of what the Needermoney's of the world promised to the fallen. 

Finally after reading over 40 entry's (which btw, were all great) I came up with THE Winner.   Trulia's video interview with Barbara Corcoran which was hosted by Sean Black  was by far the most creative, most informative and so down to earth video.  Sean did such a great interview with the Queen Of Real Estate that he deserves the King Pin spot!  In the video Barbara says to be a great real estate agent you must "Be great at taking rejection and after you take a hit, don't take it personally, the great agents take a 1/2 hour to feel better and then they move on"  the ability to that is what will make an agent a superstar.  Sean this was a great three part interview and I want to thank you for the submission!

Head on over to my place to read the rest of the Carnival finals.

I have already been there.  I am a little bit tipsy from the shots of rubbing alcohol.  Excuse me if I slur my typing...

Christine,

Vodka does not smell and dose not have much of a taste,(chilled of course) but I can tell you if you do a shot fast and add the beer chaser, you will forget the taste and everything else around you!

It has got to be better than rubbing alcohol.

Thanks for hosting everyone and having such great entertainment. I'm still watching calories, so will pass on the vodka. But that doesn't mean I can't have fun at the party.

Hey NY Chic...

Man I forgot you had The Carnival this week. I'm making up for that later tonight. Is it a B.Y.O.B?

P.S. I will gladly take off my shoes. Anything else? :)

P.S.S. You're just like me. I stopped throwing huge parties because I wind up the drunkard. LOL.

TLW...ROAR!
