Who's your daddy?

I don't mean this the way it sounds, but I'm pretty excited about the state of the hole.I took this picture this morning. It goes all the way to the third floor. Isn't that cool?

And then a couple hours later, it looked like this! We have ceiling! They're going to curve the molding behind it, which apparently is going to be kind of a bitch to pull off. But will ultimately look amazing.

Have I told you how excited I am about this elevator? And how I plan to take the day off when we finally have an installation date? And how we're totally going to throw a party after it's in, because so many of my friends have asked if they can come over and get drunk and ride our elevator?

That's not Hector Bigwood, by the way. That's Miguel. Who didn't want to smile for the camera.

You know, when he arrived this morning, Jordan said, "Hector!"

And Miguel was all, um, no. Miguel. The other Latino. We all look alike.

So I had to explain that to Jordan, every woman with long brown hair is our friend Jen. And every time he sees a tall guy with a big stomach he says, "Daddy!"

Seriously. After the "Daddy!" spotting started I realized I don't want to know who gets identified as "Mama!" when I'm not around.


  1. "And every time he sees a tall guy with a big stomach he says, 'Daddy!'"? I know Nick, and he doesn't have a big stomach. He is just big boned.

  2. oh! please, may we take a weekend sojourn and invite ourselves on an elevator ride?!?!? doesn't have to be the inaugural ride, just...ya know, eventually!? i'm a big fan of dumbwaiters, but i've never known anyone with a real live elevator! also? declan calls every under five year old blonde girl "ally". every. one. they can be a little bitchy when you call them another name, those little hussies!

  3. Yay for progress! It is starting to actually look like the shaft of an elevator. And you've got ceiling pieces there!

    Rock on!

    Maybe Miguel needs a porn name too, like Hector. To distinguish one from the other. LOL.

    LBM doesn't point at random folks with Dadda or Mama. But he does often point at things like clouds and call them planes or cars. Or bubbles. He's big into the bubble front right now.

    Wish I could be there for the after installation party. Sounds like it's going to be awesome! :)

  4. That looks seriously cool.

  5. A de F - Yes, big boned, I know, I know. So is his father, who needs yet another heart operation.

    Coleen - Yes, come down! It's apparently very very slow, so not actually an exciting elevator to ride. But still, I find the whole thing so fucking cool.

    Moue - Hahaha - I would feel kind of creepy bestowing another porn name on one of the construction guys who are at our house daily...

    Jordan hasn't really noticed clouds yet. That's very fun!

    Dana - It is going to be. Very psyched.

  6. HAHAHA! my sister watches alot of TV and for the longest time my niece called every black woman she saw "Oprah"
    gotta love the connections toddlers make


Tell me about it.
