Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I came as close as I have ever gotten to threatening someone with the kind of positions Clint Eastwood discussed with that empty chair.  An attorney with a defaulting client tried to turn the table on my client and me, looking to get my client to lose money and wanting me to do extra work.  Some people won’t own their own screw-ups, especially when they employ obsessive lawyers to deflect their culpability.

~~Speaking of creeps, I’ll pile onto Mitt just a quick bit of amazement on his fixation with “free people,” while he plots to eliminate PBS and reproductive independence.

~~ I’ve decided that I’m not a particular fan of the word “cozy.” It is used far too often to describe fall and winter food, clothing, or activities that should actually be described as fattening, elastic-waisted and unflattering, or lazy.

~~You know how somebody may “Shush!” you if you say that traffic is flowing well, or that a game (or life) is in the bag? That’s what I said to a RE agent who called me to discuss a cash deal that should be a “piece of cake, a real slam dunk” (her mixed metaphors, not mine). That deal now lacks paperwork from defunct banks on long-satisfied mortgages, plus it has a boundary line mix-up that had to involve a drunken surveyor. Celebrate when the time on the clock reads 00:00, people, not at the coin toss!

~~ My office has become infested with some sort of flying, biting bug that is bigger than a mosquito and smaller than a wasp.  I am covered with bites, and the neem I sprayed has given me a headache  (I detest killing even critters who hurt me, and pesticide fumes would be even worse). Any proven humane, effective, and non-nauseating suggestions?

Have a great Columbus Day weekend!

Bugs are relentless. Maybe there is some odorless repellent to spray at night?

We tried that... they don't seem to be repelled.
