turns out the boiler/furnace/whole freaking heating system is busted and has to be replaced (had heat for a LITTLE bit on Saturday) -- oh joy! and this "may take a few days" (which may not even be legal according to NJ tenant laws?? gotta make some phone calls tomorrow)

ok gotta get back to work -- but i will be listening and digging :)

STAY WARM everyone!!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Mr. Pumpy:

slug! NO!!! As a former landlord I can understand. I knew what it took to get a job done, but I always put my tenants first. Some delays are inevitable, and I hope that is all you are dealing with. Either way...it is not enjoyable, I KNOW! Aside from that...Shit Landlords Be Damned!!! I hope you have a good one.

Mr. Pumpy!!! thanks so much!
yeah, my building -- all condos now, except for my next door neighbor (who is even older than me, but did not move here until 1987) -- turns out our apartments are both rent controlled (i did not know that when i rented the place in 1982! and yeah, surely my original landlord would have caught this BEFORE anything happened -- old-school Yugoslavian dude, was in the building practically every day, working on stuff -- anyway, he sold the building in 2007, and that is when i found out that my neighbor and i are protected by the rent control laws)
thank you for being a decent landlord!!! now all i deal with is some "management company" -- thankfully i have two space heaters from when the boiler broke down some years ago (or when Sandy hit and flooded the whole basement?) -- but that building management company gave EVERYONE in the building two space heaters! (this company said "you may want to get a space heater")
and yeah, i gotta check out the regulations! kinda rusty, but iirc -- units have to be 68º during the day, 65º at night
Avatar 9:52pm JohnEBGood:

I lived in Denver for 10 years and it was not uncommon to be 10 degrees below zero. But it could be 70 in 2 days! We've all heard about Texas tornados and Texas floods. This is Texas Freeze.

It is unfortunate that this is the type of shadowy shite that many have to deal with in this country while being tenants of those that supposedly do the correct thing by others. Damn shame, my friend. I wish I lived nearby. I'd either set someone straight...or hang out and comfort you! Ha! Not sure how I'd be at the prior. I think good!!!

Handy: Oh yeah, that's right, while I was working I thought I heard Scott W saying that you and K8 took a care package over to FMU. Coupla menschen! And thanks, missed "War Girls" this morning, but gave a listen to the archive later, was pleasantly surprised that the mix held up. The other entries were amazing.

I spent the past three hours (decades) hanging with pops (at my request being he needs to get out of his room), drinking seltzer having cocktails, watching Doctor Martin, and then clicking and cocktailing along to WoofMoo while responding to his usual accusations. It was not bad. I love dad, and I love WFMU. I began to write with envy in my heart, but here I am, taking care of pops and getting to hang out with you lot. Cheers!

If this confuses anyone, I assure yo that I am more confused.

I am confused, and confusing.

Handy, pretty common nowadays. But I don't have any, so a few hot days in a row will put the house only about 5c cooler than outside. But nights have been cooler so house is only 28c at the moment, We haven't had any many 40c+ days this year. So a cool Summer really. 😎☀️
