I have yet to decide what to wear to the soiree I am throwing at the newly completed Brokeback Manor on Labor Day weekend. I must remember to invite my neighbors so they don't get too upset with all the paparazzi hanging around, not to mention the helicopters hovering above. I completely understand what Brad and Angelina must have gone through at their nuptials. Fame can be such a bore!
Before I have my new suit altered, I should check in with contractor Mitch. Last weekend he told me he would hand me a schedule by this week. When I said I wanted the house to be done by Labor Day I should have been more clear and specified that I meant Labor Day of this year, the year of our Lord 2010. It's Wednesday and, as of yet, no schedule, what a surprise! He also said that from now on there will be two assistants helping him with the job. Maybe a bit of a stretch to call it a crew but let's remember three is a crowd.
I know I've been saying every week that I am going up on the weekend, but with so little progress it's just too depressing. This weekend I am taking clients up to shop in the area and I just know they are dying to see my house so I've put it on the itinerary. After Olana, Brokeback Manor will sure to become one of Hudson's great tourist attractions. As I always tell architect Joan Chan: this house will make you famous. She's going to be so grateful!
