I really hope that the employee @ Canadian Tire has never successfully convinced anyone to use drywall compound in place of stucco patch.

OH MY GOD
My carrier has been super slow releasing the ICS update for my handset. It says alot about me that the highlight of my has been waking up to a ready to install firmware update. Mmmmmmmm
I fucking love my wife. Just sayin’

- I am semi-guilty of this syndrome, my wife and I do live together (with pets) in a 2000+ sqft home that previously raised a family of 8. The only thing that differs us from this concept entirely is that we were the only buyers looking to “respectfully revive” this amazing 1920s cottage not destroy and subdivide the large lot into two McTownhouses. I do feel a sense of responsibility to the designer, and builders of our home to revitalise it’s “bones” and remove the bad 70s “Brady Bunch” renovations done in the past. I think these feelings of duty to older/borderline heritage buildings is strongly rooted in my grandfather’s involvement and amazing success in the real estate industry leaving me and my father the de-facto caretaker of his heritage properties since I can remember. I also recently learned that my great grandfather made a living not only as a farmer in rural England, but also buying up run down farm houses and reviving/combining the best parts into vacation homes for urban sycophants looking to get away to the country. Yet again, maybe these are all just the justifications I tell myself to reconcile the idea that I have enough space to dedicate one entire room to sneakers and another to Lego, records and other immature pursuits.
