Full Board!!!

Thank the maker(s of Advil)!

Yesterday the gang got together to help Chris and Tash install their new floor and while the experience was pretty fun as floor istallations go (meaning it wasn’t MY floor, so I wasn’t super stressed) it was also educational.

Some of the things I learned include:

  • Unless you live in a room that looks exactly like the room pictured in the instructions, odds are it’s not going to be as easy as the instructions suggest.
  • Group work is always more fun when you can shout obscure statements like “TAPPER!” and “FULL BOARD!” at each other with unbridled glee
  • If you have the option of having a professional install your floor, for heaven’s sake, DO IT
  • Only really mature people can get through an installation like that with floor boards that have male and female parts without continually cracking up
  • Dominion makes some lovely salads
  • “You don’t want to fuck with Shady. Cause Shady will fucking kill you.” – Eminem

Really, we’re all better people for knowing this.



  1. Obviously we don’t have the maturity required.

  2. It was my floor and I wasn’t super stressed while doing it because we had such great help. The aftermath of needing to do the trim around the edges of the room is what’s killing me now…and not softly…or with his song.
