As the Lounge looked upon first Viewing. we made an offer upon second viewing  in March 2009

 

11/18/09 Ev moved out. So i took down her interior wall and opened up the space. note the icky tile floor. 

 

Egg’s room. as it looked when we installed the steel wrap around beam over this wood beam. 

 

(11/28/2010) Egg’s room as it looks currently. turns out his room is not sound proof. i know, right? why didn’t they build rooms to house noisy gamer rock music
playing teenagers. So because i can, i’ve ripped up his room. will rewire, insulate and hang VERY EXPENSIVE sound board sheet rock. 
also he will get new floor, as will the lounge and my office (Ev’s Ex-room)

 

Note: missing icky tile!! this is the view from Eggs door frame into the office & lounge. and River, my fat Bengal baby. 
she’s up for rehoming btw. tho she comes w/a gf. 

 

looking from pool deck into Lounge. can’t wait to see the new floor!!! i hope it’s as perfect as i’m expecting.

Prez job site flooded.

 

IF you had told me when i bought these that in the future i’d be wearing them every single day for 5 days now i’da have said, 
“where do you think i’ll be living?? Portland?”  and sneered at you. IF i had known i’da bought some boots with more insulation and support. 
puddle jumping makes for ice cold tootsies after. AS it is i only bought these in NYC for a trip in NYC where it rained every.single.day.i.was.there.
NEVER thought i’d get more then two or three uses outta them. 

 

parking lot waves. over the drainage grate. it was 7 inches of water, in case yr wondering.

Okay! i’ll show you. but i’m fairly positive only 3 ppl care. 
Here’s some photos,but i’m sure, if the Ol’Ore could talk, she would make me take them down. they certainly don’t show her best side. 

11/18/09 -Sink

 

11/30/09 -No Sink

 

12/02/09 -No sink. No floor. No wall. she’s soooooo exposed. i feel bad for her. 

 

01/22/10 -Hi Almost sink, Almost floor. Almost walls. 

The sink is still in it’s original location. right down to her pipes, but those, the pipes, are new. as is damn near everything about this old whore.

Haiti-

The CEO of the American Red Cross pulls an annual salary of $565,000. For every dollar donated, only $0.19 is left over after expenses (i.e. only 19 cents is donated).

Dear Pat Robertson, I know that you know that all press is good press, so I appreciate the shout-out. And you make God look like a big mean bully who kicks people when they are down, so I’m all over that action. But when you say that Haiti has made a pact with me, it is totally humiliating. I may be evil incarnate, but I’m no welcher. The way you put it, making a deal with me leaves folks desperate and impoverished. Sure, in the afterlife, but when I strike bargains with people, they first get something here on earth — glamour, beauty, talent, wealth, fame, glory, a golden fiddle. Those Haitians have nothing, and I mean nothing. And that was before the earthquake. Haven’t you seen “Crossroads”? Or “Damn Yankees”? If I had a thing going with Haiti, there’d be lots of banks, skyscrapers, SUVs, exclusive night clubs, Botox — that kind of thing. An 80 percent poverty rate is so not my style. Nothing against it — I’m just saying: Not how I roll. You’re doing great work, Pat, and I don’t want to clip your wings — just, come on, you’re making me look bad. And not the good kind of bad. Keep blaming God. That’s working. But leave me out of it, please. Or we may need to renegotiate your own contract. Best, Satan

Circa 1989 or 88 Durbin SA 
they say people look like their pets… this was not my pet. coulda been tho, eh?

 

If you think anything about this photo is dated you’d be wrong. i’m still all goofy smiles. i still wear jeans & tees 97% of my days. and while i do appreciate the beauty of 
women i will ALWAYS and FOREVER prefer the company of men. =)
if only i could rmbr the name of the boy on my right. he was the first boy to ever take me walking-on-the-beach-at-night-then-making-out-in-the-sand-boy. 

garsh those really were the days. 

and Haiti. it’s really truly horrible. please if you feel compelled to give money find some other avenue instead of The Red Cross. the Red Cross wasn’t so helpful to it’s Katrina clients. and thats all i’ll say about that.
