I Am Not Dead. Yet.
Some of you have sent me email, wondering where I am. "Tony are you okay?"; "T-Dog (my street name), whassup with no new posts?"; "Tony, your blog is all that I have going in my life right now, so will you please post something?"; and so on. I'm deep into painting the new house before the furniture arrives, managing some work things, and keeping a wife and two youngsters happy, so I haven't had time to write to you, my faithful readers. But rest assured, I'll be back in business Monday. Ish. Tuesday at the latest.
In the meantime, read any of my comrades to the left (not in the political sense, of course). Unless any of you happen to drywall, in which case, send me your name and a brief picture portfolio of your work.

Oh, so now "drywall" is a verb?
(No, I don't um drywall. Just sniping.)

T-Dog? Those paint fumes must be getting to you.
To Brian: drywall is a verb now. It's in Webster's New World Dictionary, 4th ed. (although it is not in the earlier editions).
As you can see, Tony, I'm a highly skilled professional expert in drywalling as a concept. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to actually do it. I think it goes on the walls or something.
I'm looking forward to your dispatches from your new base of operations.

"Drywalling" is like "stonewalling" only more irritating. (All those crumbly bits get everywhere.)

Damn! I send you love letters and I'm still not on that blogroll. I'm brilliant, baby!
Okay....maybe not. But, the point is, ummm....I think.....well, there WAS no point.
Have fun with that work on the house. Too bad you don't have a friend like me willing to paint for you. I'm EXCELLENT! I've helped restore several homes. Strangely, I heard day-glo orange wasn't a popular color in Victorian homes. Oh well, I thought it worked well.

Yo T-Dog! Whassup with the dis! Is it my crush on Hitchens? Or my CPUSA membership?

I can "drywall", only it may remove your house from the House Beautiful magazine to House Ugly! Function over form, and as long as the sheetrock stays up and doesn't fall down, then you're ahead of the game (wallpaper can cover alot of "whoops").
