We've got graffiti

Isn't that lovely? Right on the corner of our building. I was pretty steamed about it. I mean it's our house, not some bridge or pole or tunnel. I took the time to paint over it yesterday and wrecked a shirt doing so. I always think I can use paint without getting it on my clothes, but that is never the case. I need to stop thinking that.

This isn't the first time that we've been graffiti tagged. Though it is the first in Montreal. When we lived in Long Beach (California) we were tagged several times. The tree trunk, the tailgate of my truck, and the "for sale" sign within 12 hours of erecting it. Sigh. Another example of teenagers uglifying the world.

In other news, there's no news. It's a boring chore filled weekend and the weather is grey and cold. Here's something. Serge in his new glasses reminds me of my ex. This alarms me. They say you always pick the same person, and in a lot of ways it's turned out to be true. I had thought I disproved that adage. Guess not.

In the het world, I have often heard it said that you pick (for a wife) someone most like your mother. I wonder if that is true in a gay world.

Re: graffiti. My understanding is that much of it is the work of "gangs" marking their territory. Quite frankly I think male dogs are better.

The white wall does cry out for Graffiti but since it is clearly private property it is not cool to mark it up. Next time they should at least paint a nice mural.
I don't want someone like my mother, I couldn't take it. I do seem to have a certain look I really like in men. They all look a lot like a guy I used to know.

You should have used one of the stripper's shirts.

I'm sorry about the graffiti.

Teenagers aren't the only ones uglyfing the world; they aren't the ones creating wars or ignoring global warming because it inteferes with their profit margin to do so.

Just saying.

Don't blame the teens, it looks like the work of a drug dealer. You know, some grafitti is wicked awesome, like the stuff the kids do on the CN rail cars? They should PAY those kids to beautify all the CN Rail cars. It would be an improvement.

I love how you bitch about them though, it makes you sound like an old man! :)

Even though the glasses remind him of your ex. I think you will agreed with me that your spouse is a keeper ;) Unlike the ex :P

The similarities between spouse and ex have always amused me. However, they are not the same person.

I'm at the age where if I caught taggers I would be giving them the speech. Luckily I'm always in bed when they are up to their amusements.

I agree with Ed - couldn't the graffiti artists have done a bit of artistic work?

There's graffiti and there's tagging.

What you have there is a tag. Any gang or drug activity in the area? Because that's probably what this is all about.

Good that you painted over it though. There is some evidence behind the broken window theory.

Graffit should be left to bathroom walls, in my opinion.

I think his glasses are cute.
