Shameful confession: yesterday after work I watched not one but two episodes of that old Hallmark Channel show, "The Good Witch"

Here's my man-card. Just take it.

It was basically the only thing on tv? Trying to give you an out here.

House purge part two starts this weekend. Found out my in laws are coming to town (thought Mr. Hab said in three weeks, he said for at least three weeks).

Self disclosure: I'm not in a good place today.

You know you can take just about any situation and spin a 'it's not bad if you look at things from THIS perspective" scenario from it. It's just a matter of picking the right perspective.

Boss man just accelerated 2 projects. Needs quotes now, before the end of the day.

But we have to attend the EDC's annual meeting for the next 2 -3 hours.

Rolls of Sweetarts were on sale for 50 cents a piece at the grocery yesterday. I seldom purchase candy but I got two last evening.

I've got to set a price on our radon services, but at the same time I have to deal with the "You can't compete with private industry" crap. If private industry were doing their job right I wouldn't have to do this. Also, I've got the equipment and trained people, why not do it.

Our Board Chair, my Code Enforcement Manager, and I were served with a law suit today. Oh, BTW, our contractor demolished the plaintiff's violation today. Do I get a Merit Badge for that?

Some foreigner on the internet would like me to know that "affordable housing" in his country (by which he means cheap ass and corrupt government projects, which isn't what I am talking about) did not work, so it will not work in mine and the decades of US history I recited isn't pertinent because these things work identically in all countries everywhere.

I think I just got mansplained.

The plaintiff filed a Notice of Dismissal to withdraw the suit. It didn't stand a chance in court.

I have a stack of projects that I need to get back with people with answers that they will not like. I have gotten to the point of just quoting the Zoning Code knowing that it will kill the project.

Ridiculous amounts of trick or treaters did *not* come by tonight. I bought as much candy as I typically did at our old house, and still have most of it.

What the new neighborhood lacks in quantity, they made up for in quality. Good costumes, and many of the groups were whole families where the parents took their kids around and wore costumes too.

And every single one of them was polite.

Best costumes tonight were the little boy dressed as Buzz Lightyear, with mom dressed as Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl. Second best was the roller derby girl that was actually on roller skates.

Apparently there was a small earthquake in Tennessee early this morning that was felt in the northern parts of metro Atlanta. I slept right through it.

With apologies to folks in California and other true seismic zones...

Heard outside my office at the front counter:



[STRIKEOUT]Woman [/STRIKEOUT]Citizen COMPLAINING that her street didn't get scraped after the snow storm.

Us: Your street is privately maintained. The HOA is responsible.

Her: There is no HOA.

Us: That's the certificate on the subdivision plat.

Her: Why would that happen?

Us: The developer didn't want to put in curb & gutter.



& it goes on...

Today a developer told me that there is no way that anyone can make money building homes with the regulations that we have in place. I looked at him for a few moments as all the things that I should not say got caught up in the filter. I finally responded with “Inam sorry that you feel that way. I seriously had about 40 responses that would not have gone over so well, starting with “we have doubled the housing stock in the past few years with developers who can make the numbers work, perhaps you are not cut out for this development thing...” but it stayed in the filter.

I also had 2 different attorneys compliment my new beard at different points today. I might keep it for a while.

Got a meeting with a developer and their legal team this afternoon who are likely going to try to strong arm us into a re-zoning and bushel basket of variances that no one wants to see happen.
