Colour Me Impressed

I have to admit that when I found out last night at 10:30pm that there was a work crew showing up at the house at 9:00am today to tear all the windows out of the house, and that they'd be done installing fancy new energy-saving windows before they left at 5:00, I was nothing short of entirely sceptical. What with the trouble that we've had with our electrician lately, the degree to which it has disrupted our lives and the fact that i work at home during the day...well, let's just say that I was less than thrilled to hear that we were going to have major renovations done to the house the next day while I worked.

I say to you now, with God as my witness: my faith has been restored. Actually, restored doesn't even begin to describe the sense of awe and wonder that Igor and his brother Ivan have given me with their inhumanly fast work crew. It's 4:00 now and they're in the final caulking stage of the job and will in all likelyhood be gone by 4:30. So yeah, if any of you are living in Toronto and you need some new windows installed, I will pass you on to Igor and Ivan. They rule the scene.

Also, their names are Igor and Ivan. Even if they totally sucked and did a poor job, you'd have instant movie-quality dialog when you cursed them for their shoddy "Damn you Ivan, I curse the spirits of your ancestors," or "A pox on you Igor for your incompetent windowship."
