Well, when I posted this entry a couple weeks ago, who would’ve thought that the correct answer would’ve been “a”? I know I certainly didn’t.




I mean, not to look a gift ceiling in the mouth, but I was kind of excited at the prospect of having the entire thing cave in before it would get fixed. But now, since I was so patient with my landlord, not only did he fix the ceiling, but he ran all over my apartment fixing other random things I wasn’t even worried about.

And plus, now how am I going to get rich if it doesn’t involve a lawsuit from being partially paralyzed by my upstairs neighbor when she and her bathtub came crashing down on top of me? This is a bunch of crap. Well, I guess I always have my 401k to fall back on. Oh wait…

    looks great! can you please have your landlord come to my house and fix things…

  2. David Says:

    Well, that indeed was a good and thoroughly job, which is a sign of how rich you might have been with the lawsuit. But, who knows… perhaps your neighbor has a big car and she doesn’t really pay too much attention when driving backwards? Just an idea.

    That’s some nice work.
    I think I’d quit taking showers and go to baths just so I could lie on my back and look up at it. Maybe with some wine.

    Gee, it looks so simple and convenient when reduced to a 3-picture montage.
    I’m glad it’s fixed. Knowing our (my?) luck, the tub from above would just break all your digits making it impossible for you to blog.

    Looks like he fixed it real good. Can we not talk about 401k’s right now? I’ve already resigned myself to being a greeter at Wal-Mart until I’m in my 90’s.

    Take heart, he just patched it. The real problem of water seeping through the floor of the bathroom above hasn’t been fixed. He just hopes you’ll move before the stains start to show again. Note how you lost your accent wall. See? See? It’s all falling into place, isn’t it?

    Clearly your landlord reads your blog and fears the judgment of the internets.

    dee-dee: sure – he’ll have his Polish handymen up there sometime in June!
    david: you know what? that’s not a bad idea. what’s a few months in traction? i’ll still have the internet!
    delmer: sometimes after drinking wine, i wake up in the bathtub, staring at the ceiling. that’s kind of the same thing, right?
    claire: i could still type with a pencil in my mouth.
    churlita: i think you would look stunning in one of those red vests!
    don: okay, you know him so well. he was totally convinced that this was just due to some one-time bathtub overflow and not years of slow leakage. i hope to be out of here by the time the stains reappear. :)
    vahid: who doesn’t fear the internets? no one, that’s who.

    Very nice job… looks like they painted your whole bathroom too?

  10. Cheryl Says:

    The paint makes it so pretty. Too bad 401ks can’t be painted over.

  11. teahouseblossom Says:

    Wow, that’s some plaster job!! Woot!

  12. martymankins Says:

    Wow. night and day. Great job on the repair. Hope the water leak doesn’t return.

  13. shari Says:

    Oh man… now it’s just another plain ol’ bathroom ceiling, whereas before, you had your first initial literally bursting through the plaster! Nothing says “zing” quite like bathroom drywall with personal monogramming. *sigh* It’s sad how we just settle for humdrum as we age, Jenny. ;)
