BufBloPoFo 09 DaySix

Not a lot of time to post tonight, so I’m going to leave you with this. It’s a before picture. That’s right, get an eyeful of this baby, because over the next year it’s going to become something really special. Hell, it’s going to become special in twelve days when we close. Right now, it’s the product of two and a half decades of... not neglect, exactly, but rather a stunning fear of decorating or updates of any kind. Let’s just say it’s a collage of shag carpets and bad wallpaper.

Anyway, here she is. Chez Garvey. Or at least the before picture of Chez Garvey:


Um... after picture forthcoming.

I’ve had a lot of homes away from home before. Each with their own class and their own distinct, you know, smell. Canisius bore the brunt of it, first in Bosch Hall, then in Frisch, and finally at the Village Townhouses. Oh that poor, poor townhouse. It didn’t have a garbage can, for instance. More of a pile, really. Four troglodytes, a well used N64 and a garbage pile.

BufBloPoFo Topic for Day 7:

Hey! Look at us! We’re halfway to the finish line! And you, participants, YOU have gifts. No no no, yes you do. In recognition of that, you get a freebie for Day 7. It’s like the center square of your BufBloPoFo bingo card where you get to use those creative participant brains of yours and come up with your own topic. And hey, if I like it, I’ll use it for everyone in week two...

Mike, the place looks great. And I bet it will look like a lawyer with a wonderful family lives there before long (i.e., twelve days!).
