Me And The Buh Buhs

2:45 pm – Now updated with more kvetching!

I have a lot of work today but I can’t concentrate until I get this off my chest.

Truth: my subtext of internal dialog goes like this: buh buh buh buh buh

And the reason for it is this. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the theme songs from Farmer’s Insurance and Hot In Cleveland are conspiring to keep my head full of buh buh buh. Is there no escape?


In other kvetching, it looks like the dopey creek project will have  a suitably matching dopey fence around it soon. In the world of fencing, can there be a fence more inefficient at keeping things out than the classic split rail style?

There’s so much tangential goings-on around the creek project. Remind me to tell you about how they put in new sidewalks because of the new catch basin and had to conform to current ADA standards by making  all driveway aprons meet flush with the road pavement and they did that by chopping out half of my concrete driveway and re-angling that part, changing the slope significantly. In the 16 feet of driveway that they replaced, the drop is 21 inches. Ironic that their efforts to meet ADA standards made it a real physical challenge to walk up the drive. We protested and they offered to solve the issue (that they created) by building a wooden ramp from my front steps down through the middle of the lawn and through the heart of my magnificent rhododendrons.

These people are insane.

UPDATE: Wait. One more thing.

This professional photo, in a nutshell,  is everything that is wrong with the modern bridal industrial complex:

oooh i am a naked bride and someone hung my wedding dress so high in a filthy tree that even if i stand on a golf cart i won’t be able to reach it

  1. The ADA compliance is a guarantee there’s federal money involved.

    Doesn’t that make you feel good? Now, anyone with a handicap can peruse your neighborhood without any restriction.

  2. The Good News: your US representative, Frankie Pee, has thrown his swollen head-sized hat in the ring for US Senate, stating that he thinks that “government has a major role to play in peoples’ lives”. And you, God bless, are an example of that…

    Sorry, that may actually be bad news… unless he wins and you have a small chance to get a better Congressman.

    1. Now the rest of the country will be treated to the visage of little ole Frankie Ferret Face and his square hair as the Ds battle it out for Jersey’s US Senate seat. Who will win? Nancy’s pet or Newark’s local hero Booker? Better hurry up and find a cat to save from a house fire, Frankie.
