I hereby declare August 21 as Official [livejournal.com profile] smartassbunny Day. Let there be parades in his honor, keys to the city, and hand-made truffles* for all. Craig gave up part of his day off to make the long, perilous trek down to the F-W to spend several hours in back-breaking labor. He helped Shawn move a ton of furniture, removed the world's ugliest sink counter and cabinets in the basement, capped off the plumbing, and generally advised on the appalling condition of our post-wallpaper-stripping walls. Removal of the counter revealed the original linoleum in a pattern so hideous that I can only assume it was installed by vandals. And the wall color behind it was a kind of neon jaundice that defies description outside a Lovecraft novel. Craig, the weasels are fascinated by the drywall patch. Kaylee just wouldn't leave it alone, so I'm figuring you guys ran out of joint compound and switched to Ferretone instead.

Seriously, thank you for all your help today. I'm sorry I didn't get home in time to say hi. We would love to show you the results of all this work at the housewarming party, so try to keep 2012 open.

*Except he'd probably end up having to make the truffles, and it's not very celebratory if you have to make your *own* damn truffles, so this is just a placeholder for now.

Yes! Wear clothes that you don't mind getting torn, spattered by paint, covered in grass stains, etc.! If your health is iffy, please bring a note from your doctor clearing you to do heavy labor! Construction experience helpful but not required! We'll provide the Bagel Bites and Diet Coke!

I was so happy, I almost cried. Next up: Finish sanding down all the spackly walls, prime, and paint! (Note to self: Buy paint.) Then the carpeting arrives, and then some furniture! No more sleeping on the floor!

Well, the boxspring and mattress are on the floor, and I was surprised to learn that it makes a big difference as to whether or not your mattresses are on a frame vs. just being on the floor! Soooooo uncomfortable.
