"ahhhhhh, Communication"

Chris Elwood on how he does, in fact, pay attention.

Is it just me or does everyone seem happier this season? I'm glad that they are showing Jeff's softer side this year. After last season and up until recently so many people would come up to me and ask, "Is Jeff really that crazy?" and I would say, "You betcha! BUT, he is a lot nicer and had done a lot more for Jenni and I and everyone else in his life than they have portrayed ." And that is the truth -- Jeff is a bit nutty but I do believe he genuinely has a great heart.

How 'bout that painting? I wish I could get a poster of that painting. Would you guys like a poster of Zoila's portrait? How much would you pay for it? I told Jeff that we should mass produce that painting and sell them to all of Zoila's fans ('cause believe me there's a bunch). Or a Zoila t-shirt, huh ... huh? Yeah that would be sweet! As far as the painting itself, I thought Samantha (the artist) did a great job. I mean portraits are very difficult and I think the mark of a well-done portrait is when you look at it, you immediately see the person being rendered and I think Samantha definitely accomplished that. Art is sooooooo subjective -- one man's trash is another's treasure. BEHOLDER people BEHOLDER!!! Anyway I do think Jeff's heart was in the right place again -- the bottom line is he helped facilitate the immortalization of a truly great woman. FYI: It did help keep the coyotes away for a couple weeks.

I'm glad that Ryan and Jenni were able to each bless V.O. 2 in their own way.

So now about me, when Jeff said that I don't listen or pay attention: The fact is that Jeff and I had discussed what the plan was for the day. He wanted me to be at the house for the pet grooming and for Chris 2 to do the running around on the errands. Jeff had given me a bank deposit that he said needed to be deposited first thing so I went downstairs and talked to Chris 2 about what we were doing for the day and that I was going to the bank and would be back in ten minutes. Jeff did not say "Stay at the house no matter what." He said for me to decide what needed to be done between Chris 2 and I and make it happen and that's what I did. Sooooooooo, do you guys feel like we are trying to subliminally make you guys and gals watch old episodes of Who's the Boss?

Exhibit A: Jenni's blog title last week

Exhibit B: my blog title last week

Exhibit C: Chris 2 say "Who's the boss?" a few times in Episode Two.

Exhibit D: Dr. TONY (Danza) last season

Exhibit E: Zoila is such an angel (Angela). OK -- so maybe E was a reach.

Do you see any other examples? Thanks again for watching.

Jenni Battles Lewd Snowmen

Jenni dishes on her HR struggles during the office's attempt at a "new day."

IT'S A NEW DAY OR IS IT?

Jeff's therapist Doctor Donna explains it all to me and Jeff.
We need to be professional.
Jeff explains it to the office at Gramercy.
Following the doctor's instruction, I ask everyone to do a little homework.
When they are at home, they write down what respect means.
Adding how they feel they have been disrespected at the office.
Jeff is not happy with the business time waste.
I am visibly unhappy with the behavior that causes it.
Zoila weighs in on respect, which she thinks is at zero all round.
Design Dad AKA Jeff wants a "new day'" starting tomorrow.
Andy clearly still wants to play "old day."
Jeff finds something obscene to stir the pot before the "new day."
Human Resources not amused.

New clients George and Monica Eads are down to the studs.
The budget has gone way up for their renovation in the Hollywood Hills.
Monica has to tell her husband George.
Never a fun moment to tell your significant other about shipping purchases or a renovation budget increase.

In Playa Del Rey client Judy's beach house is for sale.
She is moving to Palm Desert.
Jeff makes it clear he wants to buy her incredible beach house.

Gramercy is dealing with Andrew's construction crushes.
Plus we are questioning his shirtless employee screen-savers.
Personal and professional boundaries have to be established ASAP.
Andy and the word or concept of boundary are in no way connected.
Cast as the enforcer by default causes my popularity to take a holiday.
Jeff needs to support me, and frankly he would rather be the leader of the bad boys.
Just call me Buzz Kill. "New Day" at Gramercy begins with an early office meeting and truth encounter.
Jeff is surprised at the amount of employee complaints.

Monica is taken to meet with Joseph the owner of Living Square.
Jeff hopes he can entertain her with some renovation details.
Megan cannot believe that every plumbing fixture can be provocatively described.

Andy and Megan visit the Eads' work site to supervise David the contractor and his crew. "Cracking the whip" is a term Andy prefers to use.
Andrew volunteers that "Megan will give you special favors" for speedy completion. Megan is embarrassed and asks contractor David to ignore Andy.
She is questioning the "New Day" concept when dealing with Andy's "old day" behavior.
At Gramercy Andrew's boundary free conduct is discussed with Jeff.
How are things ever going to change heading in the current direction?
Jeff keeps boundaries blurry with his own crossover fun.
Gramercy is the setting for Zoila and Gage's war zone.
When she calls him "a bitch" in "New Day" Jeff and I  have to step in: "Jenni we're stopping all this crap."Judy in Playa Del Rey has strong opinions and gives Jeff as good as she gets.
I love it.
Jeff wants her beach house, so he thinks he's on good behavior.
And he sweetly asks for a "special price."
Jeff thinks she is steps ahead of his games, because she's a therapist.
And he casually asks her to define his issues.
She without hesitation says he is "needy with low self-esteem."
I don't think these are the answers he was expecting.
She says we are both "passive aggressive."
I quickly admit to being needy with low self-esteem.
Are these the ties that bind us?

Jeff and Megan do another walk through at the Eads renovation with David. Measurements are not adding up, and Jeff is stressing.

Gage blows the whistle on Andy's office iPad photo saying, "He's a weird dude."
Snowmen with a lewd human close encounter...and carrots are involved.
Clients don't need that nasty revelation imbedded accidentally by Andy into a work file. Andy is told to remove it -- the snowmen three-way has to go.
He refuses and is clearly upset thinking we are all overreacting.
Jeff is having some very unpleasant employee realizations.
