Whoa, you're wondering....exlrrp.....on the second Saturday of the month? WTF, over?
Yes, once again, someone communicate with me and begged me to write a diary today. Well, of course, noblesse oblige. Its never easy for a liberal to say no when someone's on his knees in front of you begging and pleading.
Its all good because I just had my carpets put down in my upper two stories. I've been waiting for this forever. Oh frabjous day, calloo callay, with a YAbbadabbadoo for an ending. This finally exorcises the demons of the idiot who lived here before me. AT least on these two floors.
I started this  years ago. Lets see now, I've built 6 closets here, cut down and rehung 5 closet doors,  painted everything not moving, re did all the interior trim, which I made and stained, rebuilt the stairs, built a kitchenette, made a master bedroom closet into a full bath and made a half bath into a walkin masterbedroom closet. And then I had it carpeted. Finally. That shitty carpet gone. Every room was a different color and had different carpeting in it---now it all looks like someone had a coherent image of it. I redid all the casings and baseboard,, th casings I made myself. The whole place is painted the same color.
And its finally been Unstupided. I wake up in the morning and love to look at my placee

Behold the befores and afters:

OK, so that's what I've been working on----how about you?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
