Paint and riddle

April 18, 2007 at 8:35 pm | Posted in Employment, Friends, Happy, silly pants | 6 Comments

Today I helped paint Anthony’s den green.  It was lovely.  He was going to go with a beige or white but I convinced him to go daring.  Be bold!  I told him.  And the end result was absolutely awesome.

Here’s an almost finished picture of part of the room.  The trim still needs to be stained and put back on the walls and the corner is still wet in this shot.  But the color is fantastic for Anthony’s earthy personality.  Bold but not ridiculous.

Have I mentioned that I love to paint.  Holy cow do I love it.  I will paint any of your houses for free.

Oh the job front (ugh, you’re thinking, is she really still talking about employment?) I have an interview on Monday with a highly recommendable engineer for a boss.  He sounds wonderfully cheerful and personable on the phone.  I simply can’t wait to meet him.  I’ve come to the realization that not only do I love to paint, but I also love going on job interviews.

I’m going to leave you with a riddle.  80% of kindergartners get this riddle and 5% of Stamford graduates figured it out.  Here goes:

What is greater than God, more evil than the Devil, poor people have it, rich people don’t want it, and if you eat it you will die?

  1. I know the answer. Nothing. And it’s all true.

  2. Oh good, do you paint the outside of the house?

  3. Excellent paint job. I like painting too – I just don’t like cleaning the rollers out afterwards.

    As for the riddle, the God bit kind of skews it, doesn’t it – with “God” being imaginary and all 🙂 (ooo – and he hides behind the sandbags…)

  4. What a perfect match! You love to paint and I have a bathroom that needs painting. Is that good fortune or what? Any time you feel like painting something, don’t hesitate to call.

  5. beautiful paint job ~ want to come to canada and help me with my kitchen (orange sunset colour)?


    answer is nothing ~ i heart that riddle …

  6. Good luck with the job interview and I love the paint as well – my bathroom is the same color!
