For the record and just to warn the universe on general principles, it is now eight minutes after midnight on July 4th and the moronic bumblers working on the garage gates of our apartment building are STILL AT IT WITH THE FUCKING POWER TOOLS, sixteen hours after they started and six hours after the bylaws say they have to stop. I tried calling the noise bylaw hotline: it’s open from 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday, and there is NO VOICE MAIL.
If they really want to see a power tool up close and personal, just let them keep this up till my bedtime.
Thus: the Devo. I am self-medicating with New Wave.
Although in Operation Global Media Domination news, I note with great pleasure that my post on Ashley Kaufman at Lolebrity is on the front page of Google. The post on Gawker got kilt; wonder why? Ah, well, less competition!
You’ve got a noise bylaw hotline? Wow! Civilised or what?!
But it’s only open from 9am-4pm, Monday to Friday? Sorry, gotta smile at that circular logic.
PS, they were still going with the power tools when I left the house at 5:30. They appear to be finished, though.
Your bedtime IS 5:30. Can’t see why you’re complaining.
Re: “self medicating with New Wave” — just what the doctor ordered, to my mind. Other option would be large dose of ketamine. Fall down, go boom…
One should let bylaws be bylaws
I would, but they’re not taking my calls!
