Here are some updates to my blog, as I can remember, of what I never finished.
The table with seats along the side that finishes at a wall is called a banquette. I prefer to call it a snug or a booth.
The cannibalized bicycle is still there.
The Nylex clock is still not working.
I am very interested in someone setting up a web site about Melbourne's public art.
We have informed the body corp committee that we are not re-nominating for the committee at this year's AGM. Disappointment expressed, as expected. No matter.
On the matter of body corporate, a tenant moved out of an apartment at the weekend. It was what we refer to as an illegal move, as he did not notify the building manager, so that lift protection could be put up and other arrangements made. He caused around $1000 damage to a exit fire door, stole a $160 floor mat, scraped paintwork and dumped two old couches in the laneway behind our building. A police report was made, photos taken, security footage viewed. I am not sure what will happen about the door damage, but he has returned the mat and has promised to remove the couches. Yet people wonder why body corp fees go up and hence their rent. It is partly due to the buildings poor claim record over the past year. The buildings insurers have increased the premium by a few thousand dollars.
