Woobie!

Dammit, dammit, dammit, I just got spoilered on a major plot point in Veronica Mars when I went to TWoP to figure out which episode I was up to. I should know better. (Also, waaaah *about* the spoiler.)

Someone earlier linked to christ_slash and bible_slash, which do exactly what they say on the tin. Their existence freaks me out even more than the Dalziel and Pascoe slash I saw. But their subtitle is "The Slashing of the Christ", which did amuse me somewhat.

Question: How much do solicitors generally charge for doing your house-buying type stuff? I've been quoted £499 plus vat plus £130 registering with the official people - is that reasonable?

Question 2: How did the word "woobie" move from being a comfort blanket type thing to being a word you can use descriptively about a person, and what exactly does it mean? I can get the general gist of it, but trying to explain it is currently beyond me. I know Ianto is the woobie of Torchwood, and I've been reliably informed that Matt is the woobie of Heroes.

Ooh, so that quote sounds OK, then. Cool.

The conveyancing fees sound pretty cheap (although it's really dependent on the value of the property). I'd always be wary about going to a firm that is too cheap regarding conveyancing costs because there is so much that can go wrong and my experience (through academic work and sitting on a committee that deals with problem cases) is that some of the cheaper ones cut corners and the client ends up with problems which cause additional costs down the line. Is it a Glasgow firm you're looking for? If so, I'll f-lcok a post for you with my contact details and am happy to give you details of some firms if you want to contact me..

The registration costs are not negotiable.

Yeah, it's a cheap (in relative terms!) property, so that's why it'll be relatively cheap fees, I guess.

Jesus had sex with a whale.

While you're at it, could you scrub out that poor whale's blowhole?

*boggles* I wasn't brave enough to actually read any of it. For which I am now profoundly grateful.
