I'm fighting the urge to post again.

Cuz I bought a wreck of a house and just want to talk to people about paint colors and contractors who never seem to finish.

Virginia Roberts said...

Um, not only should you post it so we can hear, but some of us live in the same city as you (?) and can tell you who to hire or not hire. Can't wait!

Virginia Roberts said...

Pooooost it! Some of us live in the same city as you and can veto or thumbs-up certain contractors, too.

Bring it on.

maison21 said...

do it.

and welcome to my life- contractors never seem to finish. they always start another job before yours is completely done, and then it takes forever to finish. always.

Robin said...

Please post! I miss reading you!

Well, damn, so that's where you've been. Missed the snark.

Why did you stop in the first place? I just found your blog today. I got a book by decorators on entertaining, and one said you should never use paper napkins, ever. Which I thought was a little extreme -- I use fabric cocktail napkins for small parties, but do I really have to buy 50 linen cocktail napkins for big parties? So I went searching for an answer to this oh-so-important topic, and found your blog. You're funny. You're right about so many things that are wrong. (But you are wrong about my tiffany necklace. But it doesn't actually say tiffany, though, so maybe you wouldn't mind it so much.) I'm a SAHM, after many years as a lawyer, and then many years as a law professor, and I've never been happier.

Would love that! You've been pinning some beauties.

tomt said...

Sorry if this is old news, but have you tried one of those room painting sites or apps? Several let one upload a photo of a room and then virtually paint it.

I was so afraid that you had dumped the snark.

Flirting & teasing (walking by after a shower with wet hair sans towel) tends to get you a better job and done quicker. Not that you didn't know this. Painters, lawyers, congressmen, all the same.

why ?

penelopebianchi said...

I think you post anonymous blog posts that are mean.

Just my opinion.....but a few have been traced back to you.

Stay in your self-imposed cage. Don't lash out anymore.

It is sickening.

Please do!

Not all contractors are bad:) Being a new home repair contractor specializing in basement finishing (among other things) in York PA, it is always hard to get customers to trust you. The never ending battle I guess, lol.
