Adoption

Just posting my mind on the adoption stuff... It amazes me how much Chris and Kim are going through to become parents. They have to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that they will be fit parents. Not just fit... they have to ace the test. They have to get straight A's and present themselves as... I dunno... 1950's Ward and June Cleaver or something.

Hell Hole Three: Your A$$ is MINE!

The Hell Hole still continues. I'm stumped as to what constitutes "repair" now. In this brand new episode of "Hell Hole Rapes Man of Innocence"... Following the wily Siding companies attempt to imitate a jack up bull in a china shop, they not only put holes in the hot water pipe... but they also put holes into ELECTRICAL CABLES! It took me over a MONTH to get the condo assoc to take responsibility for this and send an Electrician out. They only did so grudgingly, and with threats about how I'd pay for…Read more …
