McGuire Scaffold-Watch! Week: ???? + 26

Still there. And still no dwarf army. I'm just trying to figure out what's going on. Of course, speculation is a lot more fun than actually calling the McGuire and asking what gives. I'm thinking that the dwarf army's absence is due to their conflict with the mole people. All that digging along Bell Street has coaxed the mole people to the surface. They began marauding and naturally they attacked the dwarf army, because both peoples are small. So the dwarfs are currently occupied with war, which is quite a large component of their society. Yep, war and renovating the cheap exterior of the McGuire. They don't believe in television, so what else is there for them?

OK, so that's just a theory. Here's another one: the work is actually done, but the management is keeping up the scaffolding until the New Year so that McGuire residents can make it as Christmas-like as possible under the circumstances. So they're paying thousands of dollars a month in scaffold rental just so its tenants can string Christmas lights and hang tinsel. Gosh, what a gesture of niceness - if it's true, which it isn't.

Whatever the reason, I'm pretty sure that ugly-ass scaffold will be up forever.

Latest rumor I heard...

- Major foundation and structural damage
- Lots and lots of tech workers are still overpaying their rent in the building, circa 2007 rents
- Building still is a frat house really
- Some people are scoring major deals under 1K since the building is so awful

- They received super fast Internet from the management, though!
