Oh, Zombie Virus!

It gets us all!

Each in our own way. But in general, we are shambling around, trying to find our way out of the mess Zombie Boss left behind.

We have two new Board Members--which means we have two former Board Members too.  At last sighting, one of the former Bored was at the Meeting last night, strangely quiet, lounging in an unusual position on the sofa in the Meeting Room. Maybe recovering from, or delaying the rest of, a real bender? He's been getting more erratic all the time. The other one was wearing Spandex on the elevator.

We had five people who had complaints or issues. Usually no one shows up for Board Meetings. I have no idea why anyone would ever skip one! But for the new Board, it was like baptism by fire.

Me, I have turned into a weapon on the side of organization but can barely talk. I have this internal thought process going for cleaning out Zombie Boss's former office and finding all the Pending. But if you asked me to explain it, I couldn't. It is all part of the Deep Focus. My subconscious is doing it, and it's driving everyone crazy. Too bad it didn't work on the Zombies.

There is a lot of Pending. There was also a lot of photocopies of the same thing, over and over. I shredded those (not the Pending but the Duplicates).  But enough about me and papers. There are still too many left. I even had an e-mail from a desperate lawyer. I've never had a letter from a desperate lawyer before. I have almost gotten him out of Zombie Stasis. Couple more steps.

One of the new Board Members said being at last night's Board Meeting was like watching reality TV. Ha ha ha!  We almost had a fistfight between a resident and the Board President over (kid you not) laundry lint. I love our Board President. He was getting far more blowback than laundry lint ought to cause.  And I could at least speak up about that.

The meeting adjourned at 10:00 p.m. One of the new Board Members announced at 9:50 that he had ten more minutes for the Meeting. He did the right thing. We would have shambled around all night. I would not have been able to cut it off--but I did tell him, in advance, that somebody was going to have to do it. And I knew he would.

Sounds like entertaining stuff. It will be interesting how meetings with the potential for violence will change after what happened in Florida this week (I guess that this would impact public meeting though).

Reality TV! I love it.

Also, weren't computers supposed to reduce the amount of paper around? Doesn't sound like it here for sure! Shredding can be fun tho.

Laundry lint! If I am using a dryer with a lint trap you can access, I always just clean it, and usually after too, since it gets filled with my cats' fur. It's just the considerate thing to do.

Great post--you have such a way with describing things!

Dear Slamdunk,
It is entertaining, afterward! At the time, I wondered how any resident could blame our super Board President for a failure of care, expecially over lint.

the resident even brought his laptop with film of dryer lint . . . I left that out . . . ha ha ha!

A little comic relief never hurt me,
Thanks for writing in!

Dear The Observer,
One of our Board Members goes to work and describes what's going on and his whole workplace thinks we should have a camera crew. So when Nixie said that out of the blue, it was pretty funny.

Thanks for a great compliment! And I saw Spandex Junior at the bus stop today. He looks much better in ski clothes. Ha ha ha again!

Thanks for writing in!

If anyone shows up to ANY condo meeting in a Guy Fawkes mask...better call for security.

I'm just sayin'...
Stay safe out there.

Dear Bob,
It took me THIS LONG to think up some witty repartee. But truth is I

This is not a good sign!!!
