11:08 pm - paint!
I occasionally have olfactory hallucinations - at the moment I am catching the odd whiff of paint fumes.

One way or another, I'm sure it has to do with spending a good chunk of the day helping grouchychris paint his new domicile. Either I'm smelling paint I got into and haven't been successful at removing yet, or I'm triggering on the last reasonably less-than-regular scent I've smelled lately.

We got a fair bit done by the time we knocked off around 3:30 p.m. or so. I arrived with uly and cjo in tow; when they had to leave was right around when mykque showed up. My hands are a little stiff - I spent most of the time doing edging/detail work.

It was more fun than I was anticipating - I don't usually look forward to activities where I'm liable to end up covering myself in something like paint (I'm fastidious in weird ways). Good company makes up for a lot. Not to mention I owe a large karmic debt for the 20-odd times or so he's helped me move, for example.

Besides, who doesn't love paint fumes? Mmmm. /facetious
Current Mood: amusedly tired

If we hadn't been here keeping an eye on the contractors (and totally wiped) we'd have been there. How's it looking?

Quite good, actually. I think the carpet may prove tenable, but I've said that before. To my eyes, the photos actually did represent the color tones fairly accurately, but I have learned in the past that I'm not always the best judge of the finer nuances.

One coat of white yesterday, a second today, and I imagine the living-room at least will allow decorating consideration without being hijacked by PINK.

Oh, ask him about the rose border. *snicker*

That looked like a particularly nasty shade of pink, too, if the color tones were at all accurate as shown on my computer. I've threatened occasionally to paint our bathroom pink, but yikes, not that pink.

And don't worry about not being there - just bad timing of the universe. You can help him repaint if/when he decides to make any of the white wall colored, down the line.
