Saturday night's all right for fightin'

Good morning, dear readers. As is my custom, I was up early on this cloudy (I think -- it is still dark) Saturday morning.

I put up a poll over there on the left. You might as well participate. I know you ain't got nothin' better to do, 'else you would not be wasting time here. Did you like that sentence?  That is some pure Hoosier talkin' for you this fine day.

A collection agency started calling the house yesterday looking for a Joanna.  There is not and has never been a Joanna at this number. I told them that the first and second times they called. I did not answer the third time nor the fourth nor the fifth. They called approximately every hour from 8:30 in the morning until 9:00 pm. I know they use phone bots, but if you call during the weekday and no one answers, wouldn't you think it is safe to assume the party you are trying to reach is at work? The jerkoff I talked to the second time pretty much called me a liar when I said there was not and never has been a person by that name at this number. I pointed out I have had the same phone number for 20 years. He asked me for a number to reach Joanna.  I told him again I don't know Joanna. He started yelling that I need to tell her to call him at...I hung up. If they call again today I am calling the State AG. BTW, If you are Joanna Wilson -- pay your bills or do not give my number.

I am not sure what is on tap for today.  I may go see the Harry Potter movie this afternoon, if I can get the boy to be seen in public with me. I have some minor drywall repair to do. I probably will not get that. The hole has been there since last spring when the toilet paper holder tore out of the wall. Another day week month will not hurt anything. I don't mind the spackle work -- it is the painting I will have to do after. I hate to paint and I know when the paint and brushes come out the wife will find a thousand places that need touched up. Did I mention how much I hate to paint?  I would rather pick up dog turds with my bare hands. NO-  before you ask -- I will not come over and clean up your dog doo if you come and paint.

Have a good Saturday.

Ya know HB, people mount those and towel bars on drywall anchors instead of studs. For friends (you live too far away like most of my friends these days) I find wear the nearest stud to the roll holder or towel bar is, stain a piece of wood and attach it to that stud (on one side for the TP holder) and drywall anchor on the other. Then mount the holder to that.
For the towel bar I do the same, making it at least 18" wide to span the 16" between studs.
You may have thought of this, but maybe someone else reading hasn't.
No painting involved.
Now tell Joanna to call us immediately!

Wear instead of where, indeed. I need a new keyboard.

Ah yes the phone calls from debt collectors are us. I have quit trying to be nice, since they want to threaten me even though they have the wrong number. I have no problem with more direct threats,, ie I will gut your mother, have anal sex with your daughter, etc, etc. I have managed to get a so called supervisor or two and have had even more fun, of course threats of law enforcement visiting me are empty and I do have fun telling them how perverted I could get with their mom, wife, daughter, etc, etc. Cheap thrills but it is the Christmas season and I do feel like giving.

You could do the same thing I do to telemarketers, say "hold on" and then just leave the phone next to the stereo speakers, or television and go on about your business. lol
