Quote of the Day - May 25th, 2007

The details of my life are quite inconsequential.... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament... My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon... luge lessons... In the spring, we'd make meat helmets... When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds — pretty standard, really. At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. At the age of 14, a Zoroastrian named Wilma ritualistically shaved my testicles — there really is nothing like a shorn scrotum — it's quite breathtaking... I suggest you try it.

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Allow me to introduce the new home of myself and she who can't be named on this blog.


It features a living room that will look nothing like this when we move in. It will be painted something other than pink and may have the carpet removed to reveal the original hardwood.

The pink will also disappear from the kitchen. Along with the carpet (seriously who carpets a kitchen?)Yep, you guessed it. The the bedrooms are also in need of painting, both of the main floor bedrooms are this colour, but they do retain their original hardwood floors and trim.


Downstairs features a more or less finished area that was a rental unit at one point. It will be the future site of J. Doan's new office/gaming room/brewery. Dig that groovy lino.
