The bathroom could probably use a bit of a clean, and the place generally could be a bit larger (I'm a bit of a hoarder which takes its toll on storage space), but no complaints. No, wait, I do have a complaint. Last week I put one of my pot plants out in the parking area to get some much-needed sun, and what do you know? Some common thief decides to take a very unwell plant -AND I had a note on it asking people not to steal it. That's inner city community for you.

You know, chances are that plant wouldn't have been taken if you didn't place that note there.

So, if you don't mind sharing, which inner city community do you live in?

Yep, I knew it was a bit of a Catch-22 there with the note - but the plant did look like it could have been simply abandoned. I wanted any prospective thief to know they were actively thieving, c.f. picking up left-out-junk.

I'm in Sydney.

Excuse me while I go green with envy. As for plants, there must be garden shops somewhere in your fair city. My rule for maintaining nice plants? Get rid of the bad ones.

that you are not a socialist. When I am old and frail, I shall fear for people like you coming into power. -- because it isn't

Just to clarify: plants are not people. People are not plants. And socialists have no more respect for human life and dignity than any other political group, as has been amply demonstrated in the past.

I support getting rid of dead or dying plants but am anti-euthanasia. It's a mindbender, isn't it?

That's how they all start out. (none / 0) (#10)

"Plants are not people", you say. Fine. No-one will argue with you. To follow up, you say "Animals are not people.". That's OK too -- only a handful of extremist "animal rights" terrorists disagree. Next, you say "Foreigners are not people". A few hand-wringing liberals might duck out, but people will generally still support you. Nationalism is popular this time of year. Then comes "Protestants are not people". Well yes, obviously, they're openly flouting the rule of God, aren't they? And if we say "Atheists are not people", we're not saying anything untrue, are we? But then you make the fatal mistake and say "Jews are not people". Jews! Oh no, Godwin was right! Suddenly people start drawing moustaches and swastikas on your photo, and saying "Mein dogg hast no nose!". It's too late. You've failed. Back to the garden with you, you tyrant. -- because it isn't

I'm just imagining me in a Hitler moustache and jackboots, marching around my house and yelling, "Zee phicus tree vill go! Ya!"

Oddly enough given our current conversation, my very favorite houseplant is our Wandering Jew.

My wife may need knee surgery to correct a patellar misalignment in both knees. Years of basketball, volleyball and running on bad knees have taken their toll.

My two year old can pick out any randomly asked for letter from a jumble of refrigerator magnets. Although today, he decided the letters' names were "D" and "not D." Par for the course for his developing sense of humor - the dog is not a frog, and the moon is not a cookie.

The master bedroom bathroom is coming along. I've knocked off the old ugly yellow tile, smashed out the shower pan, pulled up the hundred pounds of lead lining, and knocked down a wall that made the shower a dark mildewy grotto. I just had "natural white" cultured marble walls and shower pan installed, and it looks sharp. All that's left now is laying the porcelain tile on the floor, wall texturing and paint.

As for me, I'm looking for another job.

So, how are things at home for you?

I just moved into a home built by Vincent Price in the late 1800's. I'm 21 and dating a highschool girl whose 16, she's always at my apartment, and we are always making out. I started a new job that I LOVE because I get to use Microsoft Window's all day and I get to program with Microsoft Visual Basteic as well. I don't have to see my parents anymore, thank God! I'm peacefully waiting for when I turn 25 and my life is over. That's that.
