I have just finished decorating a bedroom.

No accidents or injuries occurred, and no areas of North Somerset were declared disaster areas.

That is all.

I think I need to sit down.

I feel like my Dad. Dammit, I think I'm a man.

It certainly sounds like a rite of passage - to complete a DIY job without mutilating yourself.

How did you do it? Did you really pay a painter and decorator and claim the work as your own? :cute:

If I did, it raises disturbing issues around the fact that I managed to get white gloss paint on my penis.

I am not going to ask how, but I do know that paint needs stirring. Didn't you use the piece of dowling passed down from generation to generation and you will eventually pass down? Not your willy mate ;)

What?

You never forget to wash your hands before using the bathroom during a paintjob?

A good vigorous scrubbing will take latex paint off. :)

If its oil based, it'll have to wear off. Gasoline or kerosene wash isn't recommended.

You sure it's paint?

I didn't forget. I just couldn't be bothered. Anyway, white spirit shifts it.

I thought you were going to tell us that you're voting Tory in May.

That wouldn't be as earth shattering

Oerdin

I agree. Laz horribly botching DIY jobs was just one of those things you come to expect at CG. It's like John Miller misspelling his name or Venom cursing at people.

Just dip it in paint remover.

I thought rites of passage usually DO include some kind of mutilation...

Maybe in real terms it'd be much more earth shattering but not in CG terms. :D

The Valentines one is gayer. Same argument for at least the 3rd year running. :beer:

I actually did my second laminate floor this weekend. Lessons learned:
Never assume there's only one way to lay a laminate floor.
ALWAYS read the directions.
Stay calm when your g/f walks in and says that one piece directly in the middle doesn't look good and needs replacing.

respect.

now you really are an adult

Drekkus

zmama

But did you replace it?

it's very unsettling. you have made your masterpiece (let's say a screw installed sirurgically with a black and decker and dui and everything on the opposite of an outside wall so as to have an extra strong nylon thread holding a 3 meter tree on a vase so it doesnt gets dropped by the wind ) and it was very difficult to do without falling over the balconi and you did made it perfect and so strong. every cm calculated and then someone which is not an expert comes along and says "maybe we should put a second one just to be sure". you cant do the mona lisa twice.

I've got you beat...I tried to build large, sturdy shelves in my garage out of stray lumber. The resulting fiasco is two shelves made out of closet doors my wife decided to take off (for god knows what reason and despite specific protest) that are sagging under their heavy loads. But that's ok, cause I used crappy spare wood and propped them up. Looks like something out of an old Mickey Mouse shantytown construction scene.

Of course, this is only temporary. I'll be buying real wood and using cleats and all the propers stuff eventually...I felt like such a metrosexual when I finished though...shameful.

Congrats Laz! Hurray!

Um... Drekkus, why would anyone let you near tools? ;)

MDA

I think its only metrosexual if you painted it and added contact paper.

Because we don't ban people here.

Just one more episode in the tv series

Lurker

When did he get "banned"?

zmama
16-02-2005, 18:43:03
For pretending to be a pornbot...umm 2 years ago??

Lurker
16-02-2005, 18:50:35
He didn't really get banned, did he? I assume someone just started a thread that said "Notice: Jon Miller Your Posting Privileges Have Been Terminated." And he believed it.

zmama
16-02-2005, 18:51:40
Nope, he was ip banned for a bit

Lurker
16-02-2005, 18:57:21
I'll be damned. I'm surprised he could spell enough porn words well enough that anyone could figure out he was a pornbot.

Spartak

Darkstar

He just copied what the porn bot had posted, and reposted it. Everywhere he could find that the porn bot had spammed, and then some threads that it hadn't. AIR... That's what got him tagged and banned.

Lazarus and the Gimp
16-02-2005, 20:08:58
Though, funnily enough, he got the url wrong in his first posts. Then went back and edited them, revealing the fact that he wasn't really a spambot at all.

That's the quintessential JM moment.
