Paperclip + Blog = House

I don't know if you've heard about this, but there's a blogger named Kyle MacDonald who took a big red paperclip and has been steadily bartering it (and the items he subsequently traded for) with the goal of eventually getting a house.

He and his paperclip started their journey on July 12, 2005 and this Wednesday, exactly one year later, he will make his final trade and become the proud owner of a 3 bedroom house in Kipling, Saskatchewan, Canada.

How cool is that?!? Really, you have to check out his blog and read about all the trades he made to get the house - a pen, a beer keg, a snowglobe, a movie role with Corbin Bernsen.... Sounds interesting, no?
