At contractor Mitch’s suggestion, I did not go to the house last week. “The concrete came out a little blotchy and you should probably wait until we fix it.” Fix it. Yes that’s a good idea, if you don’t get it right the first time… I guess if Obama can repair eight years worth of ridiculously bad decisions, Mitch can repair a blotchy floor. I will definitely go up some day this week, as I have to approve it before he puts the finish on. I’m thinking semi-gloss. Laura, maybe you have an opinion?
I thought I would share a story with you. A friend told me that some friends of hers had gone to Hudson for the first time with an architect friend. He took them to see a house he had done. They went on to describe this great house being constructed across the street, one that belonged to a “famous designer.” Famous designer, yes that would be me. Brokeback Manor it is already becoming a landmark. I hope I am up to the responsibilities of living in a famous house. It can’t be easy. Right, Mr. President? Does anyone know where I can get a brass plaque made?
Speaking of Mr. President, is it just me or is everyone sleeping a little better now that we have some brain matter in the White House?
Now that we are talking politics (not much to say about progress in construction), I might as well continue. As if there wasn’t enough comic relief with the governor of Alaska, how about the governor of Illinois? Quick association: Gandhi, Mandela, Dr. King—the name Blagojevich comes immediately to mind, right? When I read the transcripts of the tapes, I was immediately thinking “Sainthood for this man!” Where do they find these people, Comedy Central? If they weren’t so scary, they would really be funny. Watching the interviews with him was like watching Saturday Night Live sketches, except they weren’t!
