Livin' in Van, Down by the River


The other night I came home late, and tried to unlock my house with my car
keys. I started the house up. So, I drove it around for a while. I was
speeding, and a cop pulled me over. He asked where I lived. I said, "right
here, officer". Later, I parked it on the freeway, got out, and yelled at all
the cars, "Get out of my driveway!"

That is so funny, especially as it happened to me just the other night. Actually, it happens a lot in my Anderson Mobile Estate. Funny story; one time after flushing the toilet, I accidentally released the hand brake. Luckily, I didn't roll too far out of my parking spot. Parking permits for this thing are a bitch but hey, sure beats property tax.

Commuting in T.O. I felt like I was living in my car so what the Hell, why not just have a house on wheels? Ok, so gassing up sucks, but no matter where I go, I'm home. I could just park on the Gardiner and who would notice? I'll bet everyone will be doing this soon. If you're looking to buy a home in Toronto, forget condos, town homes or a semi, go mobile estate. Forget modern pre-fab or customized shipping containers. This mutha rocks! Don't like your neighbours? Drive away. Taxes go up? Drive away.

The only downside is it's the only house in Toronto that depreciates 30% the day you drive it off the lot. On the plus side though, you feel so safe when you drive, it's like Hummers will bounce off you like bugs.*
