Patrick...."Et tu Brute!"
Pat knows Latin and is classically educated as a former street kid from Taft School, so he knows exactly what I am saying to him.
But for you other boneheads, it is a quote from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar". And it stands for... "Why did you stick the freaking knife in me Brutus? I thought you were my freaking friend!"
It's sad that I have to explain everything. And you really have no excuse. I read Shakespeare at Lynn English High School, not some hoity-toity, pedigreed academy like Shrewsbury High or something.
Nanepashemet Peeps of the Week for the 4th week of 2009.
The Lift Ticket Lady at Mount Cranmore
Ironically, I was down by Taft School in Connecticut on Thurs. pulling permits for Nanepashemet Telecom, which caused Piscatelli to miss his precious POTW Selection post.

Can't say that it slowed me down though. After a quick stop in Marblehead to check email and prepare some documents, it was off to Maynard, then Sturbridge in a hectic search for Nanepashemet paypoints. Elsier was wielding his way through Rhode Island, and we had Rockland, Maine covered... among other things.
The weather is cold... but Nanepashemet remains sizzling hot.

Plus it was only after I paid for lift tickets when I was told that you got a discount if you were over 65 years of age.
The ticket lady said that I easily could have faked it.... Bitch.
It was cold though. This morning the thermometer showed -9 degrees Fahrenheit in North Conway.

He is definitely the leader that the country needs. Soon we'll see if he is the commander and administrator that will truly ensure his greatness.
I am sincerely happy for the people of color who are so emotional over the success of this man. One can only imagine the deep rooted feelings of a people who have been so persecuted over the course of American history to see one of their own rise to the top of the pile.
Dr. King's Dream is realized. And that on it's own is something to cherish and celebrate.
A new world is born. Let's see how quick it reaches maturity.

They are actually having involuntary orgasms on camera as they coo and gush over the inauguration details.
How embarrassing for them!!!!
Speaking of the Obama Inauguration, I didn't get invited so I'm not going.
So am I.
I didn't even get offered a job in the Obama administration, which is a major faux pas on Barach's part.
Doesn't he realize the contributions that could be made in a plethora of places by the Nanepashemet Blogmaster???? It is such a blotched opportunity for the hapless Democrats.

To my detractors who predicted that my business would fail, ...and you know who you are, ....you were woefully off of the mark. But I'm so God Damned busy that I can't take any satisfaction from it.
I will pick up the pace with this pathetic Blog, but not today or tomorrow.

Sorry about the post lapse.
This house fire has taken a lot more attention that I had anticipated, and a number of other issues popped up that I don't want to tell you about.
Usually I feel like I'm getting screwed by business or finance, but that side of the equation is holding up well. It's a whole bunch of other abnormalities that has demanded my focus.
This too shall pass.
Looking forward to returning to peace and harmony.

This is a dramatically different style compared to the dovetailed traditional chest that I crafted last spring.
I have some time, but I'm leaning towards this alternative design.

Wouldn't you think that somebody would be thoughtful enough to give me the one gift that would truly add solace to my life??? Thanks for Nothing.

I have been trying to tell you Peeps for a long time about the sheer power that the Nanepashemet Blog wields. It is not to be reckoned lightly with. Look at how it has affected our reigning Peep of the Year in only the first few hours of her term!!!
Her life is about to be turned completely on end and her kids are obviously struggling with the strain.
POTY Lauren states....
"I must say I am both shocked and honored to be Peep of the Year. I did not believe the news when I first heard. Calls, emails, and texts have been coming in all day!!! For a stay at home mom with two children under two this is about as good as it gets. I promise uphold the Peep of the year title with great respect. I am already looking for a company to make a Peep of the Year sash that I can wear out in public. I hope that I can pass it on to future Peeps of the Year. Happy New Year. Lauren Rathbone, attached is a picture of myself and the boys when we heard the News!"
Hang in there Lauren. It's only for a year, and time passes quickly.
My freaking house almost burned down.
I've had Nanepashemet Telecom work up to my eyeballs.
But all I hear from you Worthless Bastards is a constant annoying chorus of lamentation. "Who is the Peep of the Year??? When will you make the choice????"
Do you know how irritating you have been? I wish I could make all of you Pathetic Pieholes, the POTY, because you all certainly qualify from the annoying criteria.
Speaking of criteria....
The Nanepashemet POTY is chosen by the same qualifications as the Peeps of the Week.
The successful/lacking candidate must be....
- Either annoying or inspirational.
- Cannot be dead.
- Cannot be an animal.
- And the case of the POTY - A case of Lagavulin given to me prior to this moment would have been an automatic.
So I have to make the selection from the remaining criteria.
Looking back at the previous POTY's, Tommy McMahon -2006 and Michael "Murph" Murphy - 2007, I have to admit that the legacy of holding the crown is starting to gain some cache. McMahon's forays onto Fenway speaks for itself, but Murph's swansong comments a couple of posts ago, really brought tears to my eyes.
This year's selection was decidedly a tough one. There were so many worthy candidates. MegaPeep Brian Butler was in the running right to the end. Mountain of a Man, Bob Brown, was hard to deny, and Pat Piscatelli was always in the mix. Not to mention the Insidious Bob Bob Wojcik and my Archrival, Joe Collins. Even "My Friend Who Doesn't Want His Name Mentioned In The Blog" merited serious consideration.
But in the end, I think that the choice was a good one.
NANEPASHEMET PEEP OF THE YEAR 2008 .... Lauren Rathbone.
Now don't start with all of the "Why Lauren?" questions. You know that I could never disclose the reason(s).
Just suck it up and offer Lauren your congratulations/condolences.
Her life has been forever altered.

Just as I was getting ready to make the crucial POTY selection, a FREAKING FIRE broke out in MY FREAKING HOUSE.
And it's already been reported in the Lynn Item. If you don't think that the Nanepashemet Blog has deep metaphysical power... Think Again!
Chimney fire causes estimated $50G in damage to Marblehead home
By Dan O'Brien / The Daily Item
MARBLEHEAD - A slow-building fire crept through a chimney flue at a Marblehead home Thursday before it burst through a wall and caught the house on fire shortly after 5:30 p.m., firefighters said.
Fire Captain Elizabeth Wilson said the couple who lives at 32 Beverly Ave. started a fire in the fireplace a few hours earlier but the situation got out of hand when the flames went through the chimney flue.
"It breached the chimney and was in the wall on the first floor" when firefighters first arrived, Wilson said. "It burned for quite a while before it broke through. There was a lot of charring."
Wilson estimated the damages from the one-alarm fire at about $50,000.
The occupants of the home, John and Joanne Nestor, both evacuated and no injuries were reported.
Wilson said the couple had their chimney cleaned just two days ago.
"This is a good reason to have your chimney inspected and not just cleaned," Wilson said.
She said frequently these types of fires happen at night.
"They were lucky they were home and awake," Wilson said.
Salem and Swampscott fire departments provided mutual aid to Marblehead.
Our profound thanks to the Marblehead Fire Department for saving our house. They are hard-working, tremendous professionals.
