Counter point: This is your god damn house. Your castle, your domain. If you can't do crack pot renovations that you like here, where can you do them? Worry less about how shit will effect resale value, and worry most about how any changes will effect your day to day mood and happiness.

I guess I'll be getting a couple direct reports at work along with a title and pay bump. Details TBD but the CIO finally realized all the shit I've been doing as well as the results I've been getting. Ops is signing my praises and he wants me to have the authority to set standards for the rest of the team. Last title bump and pay raise about 2 years ago was toothless and they realize that now. that was basically just to keep me from taking another position in the company with compliance, which I was leaning 60-40 on turning down any way.

Nice!

You know what I miss? Weekends. For about 10 weeks now, every weekend, we have some sort of project, whether it was moving, fixing up, cleaning, etc the old house, which is no longer ours, thankfully, or working on the new house. Landscape stuff, moving the rest of our stuff, now we are in full construction zone mode, only having a queen bed in a guest room to live in. Once the floor goes down, i'll have to move everything from the garage to its proper place

Still a ton of work to be done on the house, Tons more landscape stuff, and that doesn't even include throwing multiple pallets of sod in the backyard, I still have multiple things to chop down and pull from the ground. There is no end in sight.

Sigh. Some day, my weekends will be mine again. Maybe once summer is over. But the house is gonna be cool once it's done.

This is so awesome. I'm looking forward to the finished pics. I wish I lived closer so I could help.

Can we get a physical description of these geriatrics?

They looked exactly like you would think two 60 year old ladies who lived in california and are into horses would like like.

Maybe Shooter wasn’t thrilled about you riding him, Napa. You ever think of that?

I have zero issues with someone not wanting to bang a 60 year old. And i’m a lot closer to 60 than you are.

Oh, Shooter was definetly not pleased to be hauling my fat ass around all weekend. He was a giant of a horse though. In awe at the size of the lad. An absolute unit.

And he was absolutely perfect as a trail horse. Basically the horse equivalent of an autonomous car. But he was not into trying to sort cattle. Which is fine, he doesn't need to be.

That sounds miserable and rewarding at the same time.

I gotta say, the thing that bothers me the most about living in a temporary, crappy condo is that I canít justify spending much of anything on improving it.

Thatís one thing thatís slighlty infuriating about this all. Iíll ask my realtor what she thinks and sheíll say ďwell, it depends what itís worth to youĒ

Well thatís what youíre here for. Youíre the fvcking expert here.

The appraisal game is absolutely a scam. The appraiser will always "magically" come back within 2% of the exact number that was mentioned to them by whoever hires them.



That's crazy. I don't even use a standard wallet anymore. I just have a phone case wallet.

who hires somebody to give them a professional assessment on the value of something and then poison's the well by saying how much they think it's worth? why would anyone ever do that? I've been thinking about getting some silverware and other items appraised and if they asked me to tell them what I thought it was worth I'd ask them why I the hell should I pay them to tell me what I already think?

I've never lost a wallet, phone, or keys. Still actually rocking the same wallet I've had since probably 1998.

It kind of hit me like I imagine someone like mk or Strat feels when one of their bands goes mainstream. LeBatard felt like our thing, and now it's everyone's thing. It's not bad or sad, really, it just hit me weird that it's getting so popular.


Also, thanks for somehow finding him so many years ago and pushing us to listen. I still can't believe you just randomly found a local Miami podcast like that, BigD. Do you have anything else that you've been listening to lately that you're loving?

Maybe I'm alone here, but I'm not a big fan of Hank being the voice of March Sadness. I mostly enjoy his work, just not in this capacity.
