A Manor of Speaking...

Jaime sends this Craiglist advertisement:

Due to the current state of the economy, i am able to work for less then i would normaly charge. Custom home builder and finisher looking for work. from remodels to decks to siding and much more. I will stick to my quote, and finish in a timely manor! Thank you

While we understand how the economy can make one want to scrimp on capital letters, what really gets us going is the idea of turning our house into a timely manor. It's close, but alas, not good enough.

When we're able to live in the manor of our dreams, we are no longer going to bother with being timely. That's for the little people. No...we shall sleep in, loll about, and let our servants bother with such things as clocks and thousand-pound hourglasses that require twice-daily manual turns. Let them eat cake!

But seriously...good luck to everyone looking for jobs. It's a tough world out there, and SPOGG is rooting for you.
