What up, FT.us?

So, this board has a case of the borings this week.

Surely we can come up with SOMETHING better than the Fern Wars.

Okay - I'll go first:

Yesterday, my knucklehead neighbors opened a fire hydrant in order to fill up their pool.

Last week, I FINALLY screamed my head off at the folks on Fletcher who use Konrad Square as their own personal dog poo receptacle.

I have been seening A LOT of work underway on the Pizza Brain/Little Baby's venture - from what I can see from Collins Street, it's going to be a really nice space in the back.

YOUR TURN.

is the back the outdoor venue thinger they were proposing?

there's a fool on every corner when you're trying to get home.

Not sure if it's enough room for a venue, but maybe outdoor seating.

The Fern Wars are at least more entertaining than coffee in Point Breeze.

Neatly chiseled, well groomed, drop dead handsome face.

I'm excited to see my nephew come up from "South Cackalacky" today until Sunday.
On the down side, freaking squirrels ate my basil sprouts yesterday.
I'd like to see how they taste with a little basil...rats with fancy tails I say.
Gonna end up going to GG and just buying some established plants. Evidently, squirrels don't like chives.

Well, they were standing in their doorway, as per usually, and let the pooches out to do their thing. All three of them loose, unleashed, running all over the park, pooping everywhere.

I stood there incredulous for a moment, then started to yell across the park for them to pick up their dog's business. That I was tired of my dog walking in it, of me walking in it, and seeing kids play in it.

They waved at me. Like they were saying hello.

I asked what this waving shizz was. He responded that he would pick up the poo when I left.

Motherthumper.

The fern episode is a symbol of all the quality of life issues in the neighborhood that we are trying to combat. I wish everyone had video cameras to capture this stuff. you done good Kenzo.

One Time a while back, I picked up their dog poo, and returned it to their doorstep (in a bag obviously). Their dog started barking when I left said delivery.. they opened the door and the guy literally started running after me calling me an jerk. i said "i'm just returning what you left in the park". it didn't end well. can't fix psycho.

Actually, you can fix psycho...but they put you in jail for it. Go figure.

Apparently one of their dogs is blind. I was told this after it lunged for my petite flower of a dog, and that was the excuse given, and not to worry.

My reply was, well, you're not - and I'm sure you see the mess it's leaving now.

6116 sign guy hasn't been around in a while. Guess he figures it's not worth it if his signs only stay up for 6 hours.

DON'T scare the bandit monsters or they'll come out at night and replaster the neighborhood. I've been surprised there hasn't been a total re-plastering yet. *knock on wood, throws salt over shoulder*

The war that is going to come on that OTHER board is going to be the meltdown of all meltdowns. If you can get me that you-know-what.

I already warned Mike it's coming to his board.

I'm guessing this will be on the order of 10 Fern Wars + 5 Huey the roosters + 8 homeless trees + 3 Hetzells in magnitude.

No kidding. Having seen some of the flame wars on that forum I am curious what Kenzo may have in store.

Water emergency in my building at work - third floor leak sends water cascading down into the second, first, and beasement levels.

The stairwells looked like waterfalls. Got me away from my desk for about and hour.

Attention Artic Splash connoisseurs...not my cup of tea, but I heard yesterday that Scoops is making a lemon water ice mixed with just enough Artic Splash.
