It’s been way too long since I’ve spoken with you and it has made me very sad 😦 Part of my stint away from this blog has been due to forgetfulness and I’m aware of that (I apologize!) However, lately it has been me trying to get used to my new schedule: balancing school, work, and writing (which hasn’t been as easy as I would have liked, but that’s usually how it works, right?)
But now I’m back! And seeing as how it’s getting close (but not really) to Halloween, I thought I’d give you a bit of 4-1-1 on the goings on of the haunted house next door to mine. I can’t quite recall if I told you about the house by me exploding a year ago this October (although, maybe “catching fire and the roof caving in, causing a small explosion” is a more accurate description), but yeah, that happened. And now it’s the creepiest looking house–well–ever.
Warning: Short rant about to begin. The IDIOT contractors (who were oh-so-super-shady, by the way) hired to rebuild the house after the fire decided to build from THE INSIDE OUT instead of TEARING DOWN THE WHOLE FREAKINGLY UNSTABLE DUMP that is now the house across the street from mine. HOW STUPID IS THAT?!?! WHOSE BRIGHT IDEA WAS THAT?!?! And, just for the record, it wasn’t a bright idea. IT WAS STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, surprise, surprise, the contractors didn’t pass inspection. I wonder why? But actually I don’t because the contractors were doing some extremely shady work. Like putting walls up around the previously charred structure without getting rid of the char or putting support back into the walls. Literally the place is going to topple over by itself any day now.
There is currently talk of tearing the whole thing down (which would be awesome because it’s ugly as sin), but I hope they manage to keep it the way it is until after Halloween. One more spooky night with that terrifying house in the corner of the street would be awesome! Honestly, though, it has taken WAY too long to make this ugly thing disappear. I don’t even want to call it a house because it’s not. A house has to have a roof. One year later and this place STILL DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A ROOF!!!! How is that even possible???
Oh, the irritation!
On a much lighter note, the most adorable little boy ever came to sell us fruit yesterday. He was so precious 🙂 And then it took me 40 minutes to get back to my university on what should have been a 15 minute commute. Way to go, Mel! Bringing down the vibe…
I guess that’s just how I’m rolling today. Rolling with the ghosties! Sorry, that was bad. Bad joke. My bad. Time to stop rambling and just finish this post. Yeah, okay, bye!
Psst, oh yeah, guess what? You know those YouTube videos that I also totally dropped the ball on? Yeah, those are coming back too. And expect a new guest/host. And a new segment!!! Yeah, stuff’s getting serious. BUM. BUM. BUUUUUUUUUM!
