Corinthian Marble Update

Here is where things stand at 6:54 p.m. PST. All tiles have been cut and sized for this, the main leg of the hall. I plan to glue and roll them before retiring for the night. Tomorrow I hope to finish up the last two legs by sundown in order to have the hall complete for the first official day of the Obama Era.
This, to me, is a fitting tribute to the final day of the Bush Era. Dirty, smelling of cat piss, stained, faded, worn and soon to be heading out the door. Now I need to decide whether to call the Junk General or College Hunks Hauling Junk to do the final honors.

I hope you have some rich Corinthian leather to accompany your Corinthian tile there, mang!

Angry - Oh but of course. I am wearing NOTHING but Corinthian leather as I write this.

How appropriate. That's pretty hilarious how "dirty" and "piss stinky" reflects much of the last 8 years. This is exciting but I'm still a little cynical, I hope Obama can fix that. Speaking of fixing, new floors are like a new paint job, makes a ton of difference. Looks good. Will it last four years?

Reidwords - The manufacturer says it has a 90 year guarantee, so I hope it lasts me at least 80 years.

Gary - I'm down to the final, final inning and feeling stiff and not in a good way.
