Diary, I got back to the house in time to see the painter's vans very optimisitically trying to make a left onto the P. I got settled down with a carrot juice and Manolo explained that the painters had been doing the trim in the gray room when Sam started loudly criticizing their technique. According to Manolo, Sam then threw a can of paint down the hallway and upset the paint mixer. According to Sam, the guys were using masking tape on the mouldings incorrectly. Either way, there is gray paint all over the place. Write your own punchline. I will have Manolo run down and rent "Rashomon" and paint the damned room myself. The paint mixer is a machine, not a person, just to clarify.
