So, Can I Go to the Trump Parc Roof or Not?

The headline of this Stamford Times article is "Trump open for viewing" but nowhere does it say, "Anyone who wants to come get a look at the top floors, call 212-555-9595." The article just quotes a Trump Parc spokesman saying how great the view is, then it tells how much apartments cost.

Ah... am I invited to the roof or not?

The article ends with the spokesman saying, "Things are moving along well. With the roof open we wanted to get up there to show off these amazing views."

Show off to whom? Just newspaper reporters? Or anybody?

I have to assume we are all invited, because that is what the headline said.

Do I sound grumpy? I'm mad because my favorite Project Runway contestant did not win. And, my husband and I "disagreed" on the proper way to make grilled cheese. I can't deal with an ambiguous headline right now, especially where Trump is concerned.

You can read about Trump Parc's and my rocky relationship in my "Construction/Development" posts. In addition being angry that the Trump Parc workers let debris crash down onto cars, I once got irritated at another inaccurate headline relating to Trump in the post "I'm Mad at Advocate Headlines, Trump Meeting."

On a related note, got this cheesey little mailer from the "only" luxury highrise in Stamford..The Classic. Has all sorts of spinning dials etc...hard to explain.must have cost them $$ to produce. Must be getting desperate.

Please tell me you were hoping Korto would win....

I'd love to see the views from up there.

PS: Love the spelling errors in the Times piece.

PPS: Grilled cheese=cheddar, white bread, tomato optional. Butter one side, grill. Butter other side, flip. Tada!

YES- the flip! That's what I said. The issue was, we were making grilled cheese in a panini maker. All hell broke loose.
Yes, I was hoping for Korto!

Gotta say, it looks to be a breathtaking view from up there....

If you ask me, once you bring a panini maker into the mix, it's no longer a grilled cheese. It's now a panini.

As a side note, if you like PB&J, try making one the same way you make grilled cheese. It's AMAZING.

We missed you last night - hope you're feeling better!
