Off My Chest


So, I can't let this thread die.

Took my new hammer to the walls in the room; just to pop some holes while planning the demo.

No insulation. This is f'ing Wisconsin. It isn't an any season room without insulation; more like a 3 day a year room. On good years.

This whole house is getting to me. My wife did not want a fixer-upper; we just agreed to get a place that would have some projects for me. By projects we didn't mean rebuild.

I still can't find where/what to get for doing the basement. Was at Menards and think I found a lot of it; but why is info on this stuff so 'hidden'?

Things are also getting way rough with my dad. His hot tub room is built on dirt; so my anger at the room we are removing just upsets him. He still adamantly wants us to keep it. He taught me so much; but he has worked for landlords for 20 years. This is my home. I've had to do so much research and go beyond...

I'm so upset about all this... I could tear a room down.

Have to be careful, do it early enough in the day I can buy any supplies I need and close anything up that needs closing; although I'm pretty sure this thing is just caulked to the house.

From the sounds of it, it may be. Look around the room for a load-bearing popsicle stick. Pull that and the whole room should be dust.

CAREFUL NOW!!! You'll get yourself in trouble.

Apparently that moron has a lot of milk toast friends around the Internet that hang on his every word, and he donates his time and some money to meaningful stuff now and then. He helped an old lady cross a busy street in Toronto one day. He's a real keeper and deserves the best cause he's the best.

OH GREAT!!! Now I'm in a spelling bee and you're an expert in the matter.

The spelling you offer is the noun version, my spelling supposes the adjective form.

This from Dictionary.com:
milk-toast
   /ˈmɪlkˌtoʊst/ Show Spelled[milk-tohst] Show IPA
–adjective 1. easily dominated; extremely mild; ineffectual; namby-pamby; wishy-washy.


–noun 2. milquetoast.



Origin:
1815–25

But thanks anyway. Always open to contributions from geniuses.

Not to stir the hornets nest; but I really like the early shows. I've seen almost every episode of every season and it is unfortunately a show that only gets worse.

I like a lot of what he has to say and I try to remember that it is a television program. Maybe I'm milk dumb or whatever you called it.

Bless You My Son.
But if I may say so you are beginning to sound like Bill O'Reilly. (Or is it O'Rielly?) (Or is it just one "L"?) (How about "Bill"? Is that spelled correctly?)

"milk toast" is the corruption of milquetoast. Given the spelling versus pronunciation of the latter, the former has become used enough to be considered legit.

The English language sees many of these sorts of changes as words and usages evolve.
