It's about time.

Mr Lannis finally installed a ceiling fan at the top of our staircase, an act that was long overdue.

Yes, he built a platform.

Yes, it stayed there for almost a week.

Yes, I had to take a picture. (Have you met me?)

You're welcome, Interwebs, You owe me.

Maybe this is just me, but I was of the impression that people don't normally sit down on chairs to install ceiling fans.

But whatev.

(And people assume he's the rational one... pffft...)

    I really don't see the big deal here. I have responses in list form:

    1. Of course he took a long time to get to it. I can only imagine the pain in the ass that project was. I'd have put it off as long as possible too.

    2. Of course he built a platform. Can you imagine trying to get a ladder over that section of the stairs? 911 operators love getting those calls.

    3. Do you have 911 in Canada? I imagine you have something similar. I'm guessing it's 1000 based entirely upon my knowledge of the differences between the metric and customary systems.



    4. Of course it stayed up there a week. Hell, if I had built that beautiful platform I might have also painted it and put potted plants on it too.


    5. If a guy can get a chair that close to where the ceiling fan is to be hung, a guy will sit while hanging a ceiling fan. Standing on top of a ladder working with your hands over your head is exhausting. Lifting a ceiling fan which isn't normally heavy feels like a ton of bricks when you have to hold it with one hand and, as I mentioned before, over your head.


    6. If you share this photo with his friends you are going to get a lot of: "F***ing brilliant.", "You got a chair up there? Awesome!" and "I'm building me one those this weekend!"

  3. Eric, Mr Lannis has voted that you are the smartest person I know. (This possibly sounds more prestigious than it is...)
