I'll get to the faces in a minute.
I am in week two of a gluten-free, vegan experiment and I am a bit hungry and grumpy as will be evident in this post. I need a chili cheeseburger.
Have you ever had another design blogger come to your house and have the overwhelming urge to apologize for all of the ugly crap in your house that you haven't gotten around to changing?
That was me Saturday morning at 10 am.
I had already joked about my ugly kitchen floor and the still unpainted walls in some rooms and somehow found the strength to avoid total dorkdom by commenting on all of the orange wood in my house.
The suburbs just wouldn't be the same without orange wood and the economy might collapse entirely if all of those 50 gallon drums of the stuff were suddenly outlawed.
Have you ever wondered who picked this for the standard builder wood stain?
Usually wood is stained a color that it might actually turn if oiled and left alone for 100 years.
The other thing I have decided to hate is ceiling fan /light combos.
I am not thrilled with ceiling fans but they are a necessary evil in some parts.
I have the ghastly builder version.
Just because fans and lights would both be useful on the ceiling does not mean they should be combined.
A toilet and a bidet...useful in the same place...not good to combine.
It doesn't make it any better to make it look all space age.
There should be a $300 fine for using them.
Now I should explain the term "drake-face". Drakes are the name of a male ducks.
Just when I thought that Restoration Hardware dominated the man -duck-face in print I saw this...
Its an ad in Elle Decor. I laughed out loud and still can't look at it without smirking.
That guy and his mustache just said, "We have this Indie-barbershop quartet and it was so hot that we took these bedazzled inner-tubes on our electric scooters to the ironic swimming hole." Then he made a drake-face and now the water is cooler.
Karen very kindly featured me in an interview with her 2013 Artist Series. Be sure to stop by.
