11/30/2016: Ugly sweater party at Paddy’s this Saturday

Suzy babe just alerted me to this. Ugly sweater party at Paddy’s this Saturday 12-3pm. Prizes for the ugliest sweater. Which sounds like a beer glass. Um — thanks?

I may/may not be attending this event due to previous commitments. (I typically book up fast around the holidays). Obviously if I went I would win and come home half-drunk with a dozen Sam Adams Winter beer glasses and make the kids chant DAD! DAD! DAD! Maybe Management too.

My sweater isn’t ugly. Isn’t even that Christmas-y. But every time I wear it you guys seems to dig it.

11/30/2016: Still raking on Randlett

Every year you guys. This is the last tree on Randlett with leaves. Happens to be right in front of my house.

I mean everybody else is done raking. Moved onto holiday cards or parties. Not me. I’m out in the cold with the leaf blower trying to blow leaves that are frosted to the grass into a big pile. Each leaf takes like 10 seconds to become unstuck from the ground.

Then I realize yard waste pick-up ends Friday.

wtf

How the hell does this tree know when yard waste pick-up ends each year? For the 7th year in a row, I’m gonna be stuck with barrels of trash, rain & snow until March.

You guys might be like #Newtonproblems — stop crying. There are more serious problems in the world. But you gotta know gang the struggle is real. Just remember that while you’re sipping eggnog or sitting next to a warm fire. I’m outside. Raking. In the cold. In the dark. Still.

 

 

11/24/2016: Holiday lights on street

First off, Happy Thanksgiving you guys. Hope your surrounded by family & friends, enjoying good food and a million Coors Lights. 

Ok back to business. Due to the overwhelming response I received for holiday lights on trees in the berm, I’m declaring it on. 


I mean Carolyn wants it so she’s gonna get it. My lights will be live on Sunday. Sure Carolyn’s will be too. Don’t leave us hangin gang. Like you did on Facebook. 😬

11/22/2016: 936 Watertown is still old as crap but has new diabolical price

Such a diabolical real estate move you guys. 936 Watertown has been on the market for 94 days. Old as crap.

936 Watertown2

Originally listed at $3,200 — much to the delight of people that enjoy funny real estate stuff. Or just funny stuff in general. Price has come all the way down to $2,799. Until today.

936 Watertown4

They increased the price $1. To $2,800. Can’t even stand how diabolical this move is! Kinda tempted to call the broker and be like I have a client that would do it at $2,799 — is there any room on price? LOL.

936 Watertown3

I mean the bathrooms gang. Just look at the bathrooms.

11/22/2016: Both condos at 108-110 Warwick under agreement

After 100 days on market and several major price cuts, both condos at 108-110 Warwick are now under agreement. 108 is a 3 bed/2 bath with 1,500 sq/ft that was originally listed at $750k. The price was cut to $629k then they found a buyer.

110 Warwick was originally listed for $775k. Also a 3 bed/2 bath with 1,500 sq/ft. The price was cut to $699k before going under agreement.

108 Warwick2

This real estate it’s not so hard you guys. They let this person do it.

11/22/2016: Holiday lights on trees in the berm?

Can we even do this you guys? Might look really nice if we wrapped some of the trees that sit in the berm in holiday lights. Maybe even a little lighting ceremony? There could be drinks after. Obviously — feel like I don’t even need to say that.

Look I don’t care if you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever. Let’s make the street look celebratory for a few weeks. I mean we won — we’re America’s Favorite Street!

In case you’re wondering how this could even be possible, it’s called an extension cord. And it would go from the house, over the sidewalk, to the tree.
