Re: Petty annoyances

I've been enjoying the show Good Bones on HGTV -- it certainly doesn't hurt that the younger woman is a super hot freckled redhead -- but the title really annoys me. To me it implies a house that might need some cosmetic work but that is fundamentally well-designed and/or well-built; yet every episo...

For all their flaws, I can't imagine any of those guys wanting to hang around with Trump. Nobody with more brain cells than Kanye wants to hang around with Trump.

Re: Home $weet Home

I’m a lover of the open plan and the base assumptions of such spaces is use of seating to create separation. For the most part irrespective of anything else, if you can’t deal with seating defining space you need lots of little rooms. It's a bit of a catch-22 because I don't want seating-defined sp...

I rise to second my esteemed colleague's support, and offer a friendly amendment, by which the spelling of their children's names would be standardized. No teacher should have to manage a class roster that includes a Brandon, Branndon, and Brandonn, nor a Codie, Cody, and Codi. And nothing that rhy...

Yep. It's crossing streams that should not be crossed.

Possibly a dispatch from Captain Obvious, but: have you looked at the thrift stores in your area? Almost every such store I've ever seen has a huge (pun unintended) selection of maternity clothes, no doubt because there's always a steady supply of women who recently outgrew -- uh, undergrew? -- the...

What about having the TV as the divider instead? Because I agree that it seems like the TV is too far away from the left-most wall where the bed is. I'm wondering if you could compress that TV viewing area by moving the TV to the middle or middle-top of the room. Unfortunately, the problem with tha...

It's a constantly shifting cluster of stuff that drifts in and out on the tides of life. Somehow because there's no defined purpose for that space it attracts random crap until the corner fills up, and then it stops attracting, and things get put away in their proper places, and it gets cleared, and...

It's not a distraction so much as a division. It just FEELS like a transition from one room to another. I think putting anything on it would only call attention to that more.
