Well-hung

For those of you who might agree with the xenophobic Republicans in Congress who want to build a 700-foot wall at the Mexican border, I respectfully say BITE ME. I have been stood up twice in the past two weeks by drywallers, and would give my right nut for some reasonably-priced hardworking manual laborers, and I don't really give a damn if they speak Swahili and eat live chickens while they're doing it so long as I have nicely-finished walls.

Anyway, as you can tell, I'm more than a little bitter to the point that I have started hanging the stuff myself again in the living room. Sadly, I only got one wall finished today...in 6.5 hours. I will admit to loving any excuse to wear my toolbelt, and I suspect one has not been worn with a Cher t-shirt since the heyday of the construction worker from The Village People. At any rate, two walls and the ceiling down, two to go, plus all the dining room. And the finishing. And the painting, and the trim, and the sanding and refinishing the floors. Being butch really sucks.


In other news, Whitney and Sly had some sort of coke explosion that I had to clean up on top of all the drywalling mess. I am seriously considering military school for them both.

No pics of the Cher top + toolbelt combo?

Only if you promise to photoshop Annette into them!

...and did you think if they were illegals, they will come on time and not stand you up? Don't bet your house!

I think they would...legal or illegal, people come here for a better life and are willing to work for it. Those of us who were born here too often take a certain lifestyle for granted, and are lazy as a result. I'm always amazed at my office the lengths to which people will go to do as little work as possible. I always want to meet the parents of those folks to try and figure out how they were raised and how they turned into such lazy bastards. My mother would have smacked me upside the head if I had behaved that way!

Do the Republicans really want to build a big wall to keep immigrants out? Ironic, don't you think, that the folks who will end up constructing the wall are the very immigrants they are trying to keep out because no white folks are willing to hard work in the heat?! Sheesh...
