You guys are just a bunch of smarties. Much more witty than me on a Monday that's for sure.
If only it were a stripping machine and I would have come home to exposed woodwork everywhere, but that is only something that could happen to the fortunate among us who attract the likes of fairies.

I believe in fairies. I believe in fairies. etc... etc... (Damn- it still hasn't worked!)

I especially like the "tenant-remover" idea. It could work indirectly, but I doubt it.

Actually, our tenants tend to grow on us, but kind of like a fungus; like the mold that grew in their closet from the pile of damp clothes left in there to rot for a while.

Sense of humour: imperative!

But really the smartie prize goes to Ron, who guessed it right. Our street is being resurfaced and will be all pretty real soon. I don't have a prize, but I could send you a little placquard that says "smartie" on it- just let me know :)

Today, riding my bike home from work I got 2 unexpected and pleasant surprises.
1. As I rode by the el train a few blocks from my house, I saw the police arresting the woman Steve refers to as "crackhead"who has been plaguing our block for the past few months. (No photo sorry.)
2. The next door condo building finally put in some of their landscaping. (see photo left)

Even though I was quite the cranky girl at work today, the day ended on a positive note and all your witty comments brought a smile to my day also.

Now in a few weeks hopefully the city will come back and re-pave.

I can dream can't I?

Better to be a smart ass than a dumb ass..... So I tell myself!

I meant smartie in a good way- I hope that came across.

Yay for landscaping neighbors!
