Not entirely pissing me off, but I went by the local ethnic grocery store because they have reasonably priced lobster. First time cooking a live lobster for me. The smallest lobster they had was 5.5 lbs. I had to go buy a new pot to cook the thing, and it was a fight getting him in the pot. I went from "holy shit I'm trying to murder this lobster" to "Get in the pot you BASTARD" in about ten seconds. All guilt went away once he started fighting back.


But tasty...mmm.....

I'm sorry about your shoe horn. It must be happenstance because I was just in a dollar store to buy some cheap slippers when I saw they had those 2 foot long plastic shoe horns and ended up buying one. I could've bought about 700 of them for the value of yours but I bet there's some cool assed family history behind it (maybe the ghost of a butler looks upon you whenever you use it and when it broke you finally set him free to ascend into the light like Swayze in Ghost).

I got shat on by a bird before a big college exam once. My neighbor (who may or may not have been in a Rhode Island and Providence and Plantations Crime Family) told me its extremely good luck to be randomly shat on by a bird. We lived on the beach so getting shat on randomly by seagulls was actually pretty common. I fucking aced that exam.

One of the medium sized counties I practice in has a glorious courthouse. It's from like the 1830s and looks amazing. It is a pleasure to try cases in front of a jury there. Feels like Inherit the Wind style trial. Like old school fucking lawyering.

One of the best things about it were the bathrooms. Oh em gee. These were probably added in the 1920s and it feels like going back in time. Marble floor. Wood paneling. Heavy wooden doors. The doorknobs were fuvking heavy iron or lead or something. Like Conan heavy steel. Absolutely beautiful.

I haven't been there in about six months. I know they were renovating the lavratories last time I was there and that's good. The one sink was leaky (omg the sinks! Separate hot and cold water! Marble backsplash!) the paint needed work, and the lights needed to be replaced.

I get there today...

I can barely go on I'm so heartbroken...

The once glorious bathroom has been completely redone. No more marble. No more steel. No more wood. I wish I had pictures of it from back then so you could appreciate it.

Instead, those beautiful real wood bathroom doors (probably oak) have been replaced with fiber ore. Those fucking heavenly heavy door knobs have been replaced with this.

I'm completely heart broken. You fucking disabled fucks who can't turn a handle. You fuvking code enforcement officers. This is the kind of unintended consequences from trying to pass laws to help the fucking weak.

You've ruined something beautiful. And you've made the world an uglier place. Fuck you.

I'm really fucking angry about this. It's a good thing I don't have a flamethrower.

If you could meet me in St Louis Louie I'd go with you to Ted Drewes and we could dance the Hoochie Coochie.

HB, that totally blows. Very little angers me more than shitty renovations to historical properties.

My college had a habit of doing this--they'd take beautiful 18th century buildings and add drop tile ceilings and linoleum floors. ffffuuuu.gif
