Recently in the house of love 4 Category

In lieu of Transformers content... I present...

Old and busted:

Dining Room (before): northwest corner of the house

New hotness:

Dining Room: Day 17 - The new chandelier is installed.

Sure it has taken 19 days of work but the dining room redo will be over with this evening and I can begin work on the living room tomorrow.

Thankfully there's no major replastering involved. Well. At least that I'm aware of yet.

I have less than 7 days to get that room redone in time for Thanksgiving and then I have about 15 days to get the foyer and hallway done prior to The Pierogi Day & Dumpling Orgy.


The new toy room? Oh maybe by May.

No toys, but lots of Play-Doh!


Hallowe'en 2007: Gravestone

I couldn't find much in the way of toys to hand out and that was fine.

The Play-Doh was quite popular and went over well.

In the end, we passed out about 10lbs of candy, there were a lot of 13 year old girls that looked like they basically dressed as slutty whores, and I ended up drinking 2-6 more beers than I should have.


Someone from The Domicile had to dress up and it sure as hell wasn't going to be me or Giga!

This and that...


So I finally was able to repair a SD card and get a few photos off from when I was moving.

From moving day - some of the plastic crack.

Some of the crack is in the basement but I have no idea when I'll ever touch it again. There's just so little time right now for toys.

From moving day - The Hoont dead after the insanity of moving day.

I had forgotten how stressed out Hensley got from all the moving and all the people in and out of both houses last month.

He, much like his owner, was a total mess.

And unlike his owner, he's actually adjusted quicker to everything.

Of course the demands placed upon him by the powers that be, which is pretty much to eat, go for walkies, and poop, really don't require too much effort.

I snapped this photo late at night after he was completely and utterly dead tired and pretty much passed out in this big dog bed that he never used before.

It was all we had available since his normal bed was buried.

I'm still not sure why the data corrupted on so much of that SD card.

Anyway, time to get ready for costumed frogs at my door.

Oh. If while I know most of you could care less, some of you have followed my other little hobby over the past few years and it is in full swing already.

I'll be trying to consolidate The Domicile renovation posts over at "Domicile: A Story of a House in Clintonville".

It also will be serving as a test bed for some different site structure testing for MovableType 4.

A garage full of crack!



About 2/3 of the crack is on the premises, most of it in bins and boxes in the garage.

I want to get it all into the basement by winter at least. I want to be able to park in my garage for once!

I need to replace some electric exterior lights today and I'd like to tackle the office which I can't seem to organize.


Without those decent shelves, I have no idea what to do with the toys in here.

Losing the attic space sucks.

Broadband's back!

| No Comments

I finally have the internets again at the new house.

The new N router is working well.

Alas, I haven't been able to set up my desktop PC or even anything remotely looking like an office.

Boxes. Boxes. And more boxes.

That's life.

New House: Day 4



Well, I'm having to post this from the Cup O Joe in Clintonville since there were all kinds of problems installing our broadband last Friday once I took possession of the house. TW tried 3 different modems and there was nothing so this is the best I can do.


I have to offer up the greatest thanks in the world to the following people who made this insane "less than 24 hour" move possible: Kelmeister, Kelmeister's Husband, MaxPower, Cynned, JayK, the NalaOjciec and NalaMatka, Evebird, and PamA.

The amount of time... not to mention backbreaking labor that was exerted from Friday night to Saturday night to move the entire contents of the house is appreciated beyond any words I could say or type.

I can only imagine the swearing and cursing that everyone had to be saying under their breath, especially at the attic shit.


80% or more of the toys will have to go. There's no doubting that now. I just can't see having these with the lack of a 4th bedroom. Target has this nice, though overly priced, shelf that will fit well in my office and will probably be the control space for toys for here on out.


Hensley has adapted. The first night there put him off but he's getting better.

Ziggy has spent most of the past 2 days hiding in the basement. Chester, annoying alpha male that he is, pretty much wanders the house screaming out his general displeasure with the world.


Boxes! My life is literally just boxes and boxes and more boxes. They are in every room, the basement, and are also completely filling the garage!

As soon as I leave here I'm heading back to try and set up my office and the front bedroom so I can get the clothes in drawers and the aquariums set back up. Neither has had the filter operational in the past few days and I hope it doesn't have too much of a negative effect on the danio/cory tank. Number Six will survive a nuclear apocalypse so I don't worry too much about him.


Unfortunately, my laptop will not read my SD cards. I don't know if the camera is in fact damaged (my mother dropped it) or if it is a data issue caused by not reformatting the card in-camera.

Not that I have anything other than pictures of boxes shoved into spaces, rooms, and crevices.


The worst thing that happened is that my glasses broke so I'm without my extra eyes.


Ok. I'm heading back home to start working. At the moment I couldn't tell you where anything is if you asked!
