Grass

New family member and other stuff

A couple of weeks ago, I was gifted the mower pictured above by a co-worker who had just upgraded to one of those fancy, zero-turning-radius, riding mowers. My old mower runs just fine, but two of the welds on the bag have broken, causing me mind-splitting frustration. Also, this new one has a 6HP motor [...]

Cluttercide!

So, Paul2k, Benyenyen and I trekked far into the woods on Saturday, burned a bunch of stuff, ate a phallic meat dinner, and made fun of each other for about twelve hours straight. The Geester\’s uncle has a bunch land outside of Ellijay and he was nice enough to let use use it, so we [...]

The Archer

My quiver of entertaining arrows is stuffed full and I hope to begin shooting them into the hay bale of your web browser post haste. There has been a bathroom redecoration completed, a Georgia/Florida game endured, a Chili Cookoff lost, a lawn aerator rented, a Boubon-aged Imperial Stout bottled, and the components of a Mash [...]

Foreshadowing

The rain is starting to take a toll on my mental condition. It\’s not some sort of Seasonal Affective Disorder. Not only do I not mind overcast weather, I prefer it to the blazing southern sun. The problem with Atlanta\’s weather this summer is that we keep getting tossed from blazing upper-nineties heat to these [...]

Stupid, natural face

Since I\’m sure you\’re all chomping at the bit for an update, I\’ll toss you a few scraps about my lawn. The turf has mostly recovered from the close call last month, but a large weed contingent has taken full advantage of the grass\’ weakened condition. And after my chemical misstep, I\’ve become too chicken-shit [...]

Summer Break

Yes, posting has been light of late. It\’s the June-July-August norm in school and in business, so why not blogging as well? Is this not yet a substantial enough medium, subject to the crests and troughs of any entity existing in modern society? Don\’t answer that. Blogging about blogging is like hosting a shower for [...]

There is such a thing as too much fertilizer, I guess

Although I\’m exposing myself to massive amounts of shame and ridicule, I thought I\’d come right out and say it anyway: I think I killed my lawn. Well, killed is a total exaggeration, but all is definitely not well on Turf de Tony. The weather this year has been nothing short of perfect for growing [...]

Gay tearing down studs

Over the weekend, we were blessed by a visit from Dawn Dontfuckaroundsky, our next door neighbor from Portland. You can see where she and her husband earned their last name at the end of this entry. She updated us on the old neighborhood. Apparently it\’s getting nicer. It was also nice to hear that the [...]

Weepend

While Gia and I were living in Portland, we spent any and all significant periods of free time travelling back to Atlanta to visit with family and friends. During these trips back to the durty durty, we grew accustomed to breakneck social schedules that would make presidential candidates whimper with exhaustion. We would return to [...]

Good Friday? You stupid, redundant jerks.

I know it\’s painfully Office Space to say, but what Friday isn\’t Good Friday? Things have been pretty weak around here for the past couple days, and I\’d like to crank out some sort of monster blog entry complete with hilarious photographs, informative links, and the kind of inflammatory speech that ranks high enough on [...]
