The Guyanese Golden Gods Kickass Amp Lawn Poetry Drill Bits Clique (I'm President)

My next door nieghbors (and many others on my street) are Guyanese.

I don't want to make any sweeping generalizations, but I think the Guyanese are great. They're totally taking over the 'hood, renovating homes, and making my street nice again.

Tonight, I caught a neighbor high up in a tree with a machete, cutting down branches.

Let me restate that: he was 20 feet up in a tree, sans ladder, cutting down branches as thick as my freaking waist with a machete.

Rock on, hardcore Guyanese neighbors!

I'm not big on memes, but I really liked this one:
You are a WRCL--Wacky Rational Constructive Leader. This makes you a golden god. People gravitate to you, and you make them feel good. You are smart, charismatic, and interesting. You may be too sensitive to others reactions, especially criticism. Your self-opinion and mood depends greatly on those around you.

You think fast and have a smart mouth, is a hoot to your friends and razorwire to your enemies. You hold a grudge like a brass ring. You crackle.

Although you have a leader's personality, you often choose not to lead, as leaders stray too far from their audience. You probably weren't very popular in high school--the joke's on them!

You may be a rock star.

Take the test!

I is a hoot to my friends and a golden god! I might even be a rock star! How could I not like that quiz?

Speaking of rock stars, somebody (whose name starts with "Z") got a kickass amp today.

He was going to get a lower-end Marshall. But I found such a kind deal on a B-stock... well...

He had half the money saved up already. His dad and I kicked in for the rest (for now, anyway). I fronted the dough, found the kind deal, and sent it down Florida way.

He is a happy little rock star :)

I'm just glad he got it before going into the studio. That he got it before his fireworks gig is superbonus.

"You know," he said, "someday you'll come down and live with us and you'll be able to hear this thing WAY TOO MUCH."

Hee. I love that boy. :)

I raked the yard this afternoon. My mower* doesn't mulch, so when Z mowed the lawn, huge tracts of dead grass were left in his wake.

They were killing the rest of the grass.

I did the whole lawn, but man, I didn't do so great a job. Those mosquitoes were VISCIOUS.**

Despite her best efforts
Clumps of dead grass
Lie scattered across the yard
Like so many bad toupees

Mosquito, mosquito, mosquito, mosquito
Mosquito, mosquito, mosquito, mosquito
Mosquito, mosquito, mosquito, mosquito

I think I need to work on my lawn poetry.

After fighting off hordes of woman-eating mosquitoes raking my lawn, I put up a railing to my attic.

Let me backtrack a little bit. When we went to Lowe's for building supplies, Paul said I was stupid for wanting to buy good drill bits. He insisted that I get the cheapest ones he could find.

Yes, that'd be the drill bit that broke off in the wall. Behind the plaster.

So, here I am, toiling away on getting the house ready for sale, and I get the $6 drill bits that break off in the wall... meanwhile, schoolboy off on summer vacation gets the highest-end amp I can find. What's wrong with this picture? :P

I'm buying THE MOST AWESOMEST DRILL BITS I CAN FIND next time I go Lowe's.

I am a member of 13 cliques of size 11, and 6 cliques of size 13.

I'm not going to say who they are, because I don't like cliques.

But I'll give you the link anyway :)

Alcestis is da bomb. Twist's da bomb, too, but Alcestis is extra bomby.

I'm working myself into the ground for the company I currently Vice President.***

I was offered the Presidency of another corporation today.

I can't leave the first, but I can work on the second in my spare time.

"Spare time." Ain't life a hoot?

I'm obviously overtired. Don'tchathink?

I took pictures of the railing and the neighbor in the tree with the machete, but they'll have to wait.

To bed go I.

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough :)

* Not the reel mower. Actually, Michele gave me an old gas-powered mower. I only mention this so those of you who have been paying too much attention to my lawn care don't think I made him tame the jungle entirely by hand.
** Out for blood, even. At least they weren't viscous... hm. Upon further reflection, they were, kinda.
*** I verbed it. Get over it.
**** My cat's breath smells like cat food.
