Happy New Year’s Eve from the Oak park, Il blog!

Just want to give you a Happy New Year’s really quick did you know that it was actually Julius Caesar who established made New Year occur on January 1st? There are of course other countries that celebrate the holiday but they all celebrate it in different ways. These are some links that show you the many different ways New year’s is celebrated:

I think this information is great if you think about traveling to another country around New year’s and want to know how other countries celebrate the holiday and so that you do not look like an “ugly American” ! You could probably also take some of the ways other cultures celebrate the holiday and integrate it into your holiday celebrations or even your Holiday party.

Thank God for Winter it stops the Neighbor from sanding furniture downstairs in Oak Park, IL

I am glad it’s winter because I can have some peace and quiet from my neighbor Meg always sanding her furniture like she is on an episode of this old House with Bob Vila (remember that show?) n the back area where the garbage cans are at the /entrance way to the laundry area and where some people park their cars without any village stickers. Wait I am in an apartment complex right? You ask. Yes, I am so it’s not like it’s her property to go and make a mess sanding furniture and leaving sawdust everywhere e for all to walk in and track back into their apartments. Nor is it her right to block all the majority of the recycling cans by placing her furniture or work area right in front of them. Nor is it her sidewalk to stain or leave wood stain on the ground, basically in the form of an outline of the furniture she painted with said stain.

Yes, with total disregard for anyone there was shit left everywhere and she did not attempt to clean it up! I came home from lunch a couple days in a row I would say basically 8 days in a two-week period and was beset by her sanding! There was not peace and quiet escape from the job on my Lunches there was Meg sanding from what I gathered was early morning to 7 pm at night, basically whenever it got dark.

Now I have to hand it to her work ethic but god damn on two days I took off in that same time period the sanding last from at least 8:30 am to 7:30 pm. That is simply ridiculous unless you have a permit and were actually remodeling something officially and were licensed but this crazy ass is renting an apartment in our building like me!

Here I cannot play my music loud without someone trying to come down and talk shit and the management (Green Plan) backing it up by talking crazy but this straight up privileged chick with the sweaters on her shoulders, upper crust yuppie was just going buck wild outside making noise and destroying the property and, nothing, was, said! That is why I am glad winter is here because that stops all that fucking ignorant behavior (can’t stain in wet winter bitch!) and gives me some opportunities to peace and quiet!

Now if the stupid old cunt and her creepy son can stop playing with their 50 lb. dog at 10 pm at night I would finally be able to enjoy this apartment… oh I almost forgot about the dog shit, so scratch “enjoy” from my previous sentence. Fucking Oak Park, IL is filled with a bunch of crazy bitches young and old that are determined to make this village worse that it usually is.

Oh, I had my friend go downstairs and make a little video of her sanding outside in the back of the apartment I put it on YouTube to save space on the blog account, just click on the hyperlink to hear how loud this shit is! Crazy fucking bitch.

Figuring out New Year’s Eve In Oak Park, IL

So I decided ahead of time to formulate a plan of what I can do around here in regards to getting my party on in Oak Park, Il and I googled “new year’s eve around Oak park, Il” and I saw immediately oakpark.com’s calendar of events. I thought to myself Yes! This is a ray of hope so I clicked on the link to look at the events listed for the 31st and.. wtf? German class? Are you fucking serious?

Here is the link look at this shit:

This shit is anti-viagra in Oak Park, Il the only thing close is a “The Gents New Year’s Eve Black Tie Event” in Berwyn, IL, this village is the lamest shit on the face of the planet. All the stuff, the parties, the concerts, it seems are happening in downtown Chicago, and you know how Wild Wild West it gets on New Year’s eve in Chicago!

Here is an article regarding the events in Chicago on New Year’s Eve https://www.timeout.com/chicago/new-years-eve

So you bet your ass I am going downtown to party and leave this boring shithole Oak Park, Il in the dust at least for the night. Because I really don’t feel like decorating, buying food, alcohol and all that other shit being a party thrower on New Year’s entails. Ugh Happy New year’s Eve my ass.

Merry Christmas from the Oak Park, Il Blog!

Just a quick hello, and Merry Christmas to all my Christians readers but also a Happy Holidays to everyone else of different faiths as well! Please enjoy this day as peacefully as you can and I hope you find some joy in today, and in the upcoming new year!

Happy Hanukkah Oak Park, IL

Good day to all! Happy Hanukkah!

This Holiday even though it is well known to people of other religions is not really recognized in Oak Park, Il either which pretty much is indicated of Oak Park, IL. So not being Oak Park, IL born and bred, I wanted to throw this shout out to my peeps of the Jewish faith in Oak Park, Il and everywhere else.

Hanukkah again is not a federal holiday in United States however today will be celebrated with traditional songs and Gift-giving as today starts 25th day of the month called Kislev of the Jewish calendar year. I have actually given coworkers at the job who are the Jewish faith dreidels as part of interfaith acknowledgment I will be surprised to see such gestures in Oak Park, Il by any entity that does not have religious affiliation, but again what do you expect living in Oak Park, Il where they are supposedly “diverse”-ha!

Anyway peeps Happy Hanukkah!

Go ahead Oak Park, IL and learn something!

Opposition to the Madison Avenue proposal in Oak Park, IL

Covered this before in my blog as well, the development in the area near Madison avenue in Oak Park, IL

Again the residents are not told about the construction of various properties around the village and the Dudley dumb dee Mayor of the village is trying to push another construction project ahead. Does he not live in this area, and the new construction will boost his property values.. nice. They are trying to build another grocery store in this area, like the Walgreens and Jewel down the street need competition, this is just another example of stupid construction and corrupt politics, whatever happened to “for the people by the people…”?

Obviously, the village government does not know how to ask the people of Oak Park, Il what they want and accept it, the village is becoming more and more like Chicago every day it is not funny. The people of Oak Park, Il really need one of those recall votes, or no confidence votes for this Mayor to get him out quickly, Oak park, Il will not be how the residents envision it anymore and I am surprised the State is allowing them to cause the type of traffic nightmare that you know will need to be fixed in 5 to 10 years with State and Federal dollars.

When all this Mayor (“No means YES!”) needs to do is listen to the people who elected him! Maybe all these groups that are opposing all these stupid projects individually that I have mentioned in this blog should come together and give the Mayor one big fight or Fuck You, either way combine efforts and get the Mayor out,

Here is the article talking about the opposition the Mayor faced regarding the proposed construction on Madison Avenue from the residents of Oak Park, Il who live in that area:

To wreck Christmas parties from Oak Park, Il and beyond

I found some stuff that will help bring cheer or freak out the residents of Oak Park. Il during the Christmas season like the legend of Krampus to the original A Christmas Carol movie, I plan to add this to the free E-books on the season and making Holiday crafts that I found online I am going to add it all together to make everyone at the holiday party crazy.

Because all they want to do is talk and shit and sit around with kids running around up your ass, plus they don’t want to have strong drinks like tequila “because of the kids” but tell you that while holding a glass of wine. (((SIGH)))

This little bit of information will freak the kids screwing up their minds forever:

Santa’s Horned Helper: The Fearsome Legend of Krampus, Christmas Punisher http://www.ancient-origins.net/myths-legends/santa-s-horned-helper-fearsome-legend-krampus-christmas-punisher-004799

OR you can do the video thing from YouTube for those kids with ADHD:

The Life and Times of Krampus by Andreas Ziebart which explains the whole legend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlSa922DgNY

This is the link to a Christmas classic movie of the Charles Dickens novel called “A Christmas Carol” but add this with the Krampus stuff, and you will have the kids paranoid for next year! Nothing like putting a little terror in their hearts.

Happy Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve from Oak Park, Il blog!

One of the things my family use to do on Christmas Eve was that we open at least one gift on Christmas Eve. I mention this because I really can’t have my family come over due to all the land mines my neighbor’s like to have their dogs plant into the snow on the sidewalk.

Now I just have to wait until Christmas day to exchange presents and open them but at least my shoes will be clean! So happy Christmas Eve people!
