Saturday is the new Friday

We have 6 showings tomorrow. This means that after a quick dinner, we’ll be cleaning the condo from top to bottom. This also means that from 11:00 to 4:00 we’ll be out of the condo doing Something Else.

If tomorrow is a brilliant spring day, being out won’t be a problem. If we get an offer, this will all be worth it. Otherwise, it’s just another day of work.

Given that extra work time, I’ll have another post up tomorrow on my feelings of Build a Better Blog in 31 days.

Friday fiction, for this week, is over at WTT:RP. Enjoy your weekend folks!

Things I Do Not Like About Chicago

1) Weather

Seriously. We hit the high humid extremes and the deep freeze. I can only lie about the change of seasons being “refreshing” for so long.

2) Traffic Management Authority

To solve the pedestrian/commuter issue (ie: no one obeying their signals at intersections) we hire people to stand in busy intersections and direct traffic. About 10% of them do. Some talk on their phones. Others talk to pedestrians. The assholes bust people for “standing.” Honestly, do we need this?

3) Cable/Broadband

The cable/broadband companies have divided neighborhoods into fiefdoms. One Monopoly per area. I’d prefer Comcast–but no, I’m stuck with MDU, RCN or AT&T. So much for “Market Solutions.”

Over all, my dislike list is exceptionally short. I’ll throw up a “Like List” at my next break.
