6/17/2015: Renovating our loft in East Boston

Well that escalated quickly.  Last time I told you guys this place needed some renovation. Uh that was an understatement.  This renovation turned into a 2nd full time job.  Here’s what we did: new custom steel stairs & railings, built-out the loft level, new appliances, new toilet, all new light fixtures, new carpet, some plumbing and painted the place.

Putting the apartment on the market this week for rent.  If you like lofts, or Terminal A at Logan, you are going to love this place.  $2,200 USDs per month.  After pics below…


6/18/2015: Kitchen renovation – mudroom

Sheetrock and plaster was done earlier in the week.  So Pete decided to knock out the mudroom today.  Pete is not a general contractor, he’s a builder.  He doesn’t show up for a few hours each week and tell the subs what to do.  He builds shit.  There was nothing in this room at 7am this morning.  Now we have a great mudroom.  Management is so excited her texts are all emoticons.  Salsa dancing.  Beer mugs.  All kinds of stuff. 🍔🍻👌🎉

6/10/2015: Kitchen renovation — thanks you guys

Just a quick shout out to everyone that’s hosted us for dinner or brought over food while we’re out of a kitchen.  Had some great meals and times with the old gang on the street. Another reason I love Randlett Park.  I mean people have brought over dinner, desserts, breakfast stuff — even a sixer of Coors Light. I think about it and get a little dusty and am like — aw you guys….

6/9/2015: RandlettPark.com reviews 50 Shades (part 3)

I know this book came out like 5 years ago but *Spoilet Alert* – Christian & Ana break up at the end of this book. This must be a huge relief to everyone in the book. Possibly everyone in America.  I mean who really thought this was gonna work?  Sure Christian has unresolved issues from childhood. But what it comes down to is he likes spanking and Ana doesn’t. So if you ask me what this book is about I say spanking. People who like it and people who don’t.

These 2 kids really tried to make a go of it in the last part of the book though. Christian met Ana’s mom and she was like damn this brother is fine.  They also went gliding at sunrise while they were in Georgia.  Was like a date from The Bachelor or something.  They spent a bunch of time together and Ana was legit falling in love with Christian. Christian meanwhile was on Planet Dominant like me no what love is.  Was just never gonna work you guys.

So I guess there are more books in this series that I won’t be reading.  My thing is more like war books. Or books about impossible feats of survival. Back when men were men. Not reviewing 50 Shades on a blog. You think Ernest Shackleton gives a shit about a blog? Guy took a rowboat home from Antarctica.
