These boots are made for walkin’

by statia on January 18, 2005

I’ve dubbed this area as the land of half finished projects. They’ve been doing some form of remodeling of our development now for the better part of 5 months. They started “retrofitting” the buildings (if you call a steel beam and a couple of two by fours retroitting) a while ago, but they never finished, they redid the lagoon, which took them a month or so, because they started the retrofitting project. Then they started painting the buildings, which they finished half of. The trim on some aren’t done. They have some weird order or something that they’re going in. I don’t know. In our office building they’ve ripped all the carpet out downstairs, over a week ago, but haven’t been back to finish it. At this rate, it’ll take a good decade to get this stuff done. What happened to starting a project, finishing it, and moving onto the next one? Is the entire bay area riddled with ADD?

In other news, my cousin signed up to do the Avon Breast Cancer walk in May. She needs at least the minimum of $1800 pledged for this walk. If you have some spare change (or it hasn’t been guilted out of you by the 9 million Tsunami relief efforts), donate it to the boobies. You’ve seen a LOT of her boobies during the boobiethon. Save boobies.

They probably get paid for a project, or at least partially paid, when they start a project. So, the more project they can get started, the more they get paid up front. Old contractors trick. It ain’t right, but that’s how they do these things.

As for donating to the walk, it depends: what kind of rack does your cousin have? :) I keed, I keed.

I’d ask you to pimp me too, but my blog is completely kerfuckered.

I’m the “other” cousin and I’m doing the Komen 3-Day walk for breast cancer in Seattle in July.
