Excerpt from timeline copy on park plaque reads:

“1812: North End Bridge is listed as only place butchers may “throw their beasts’ entrails” in the city of Boston.”

The Bean in Chicago

Allen and I walked around looking at furniture most of today. At one point, this trip became very much prolonged as Allen became obsessed with a certain Puerto Rican saleswoman at Design Within Reach. We spent a good 40 minutes there, with Allen settling down into a womb chair to go over EACH AND EVERY design detail of his apartment with the victim.

I would have taken a picture but that would have been smarmy, so I took one of the giant bean in the Millenium Park instead.

Allen sends me pictures and I post them.

I like that.

This is Allen’s kitchen. There is something very geometrical and Allen-esque about it.

This is Allen’s bathroom. Notice the “His” and “Hers” sinks.

I don’t have “His” and “Hers” sinks in my apartment because I hate and fear other people.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Measure Twice… Cut Once?

Or in my case, measure once very poorly, tear everything down twice, then do it all over again.  The picture you see here is my kitchen as of last week, ceiling torn out because it turned out that it was built completely unlevel a few months ago.   Apparently, the contractors who framed up the ceiling thought it might be more expedient to measure the level by going 8 feet up from one end of the floor, and 8 feet up from the other end, draw a line between the two and start nailing wood in.

Unfortunately, the floor was about 5 inches out of level from one end to the other.

Looks like another 4 week delay.
