I think the apartment thing detracts from the important message that’s she’s completely retarded in the “unemployment is low because everyone works two jobs” sort of way. Fucking. Stupid.

Re: Home $weet Home

Brits also sure do love wallpaper. Ah yes the great ebb and flow of wallpaper. It's like the yo-yo, it keeps coming back. The us reno shows usually nix wallpaper as too expensive. But they'll turn to it for a "feature wall" or to "take it to the next level". Inevitably some large garish design, lik...

Re: Home $weet Home

Up most of the night with sick kids and ended up watching a ton of House Doctor on Netflix. The premise of the show is that an American designer comes in and helps redecorate British houses that have been on the market for a long time. I personally find the designer annoying and her taste questiona...

Some justice in the case of the kleptocratic Marcos regime, as Imelda Marcos is convicted of graft and sentenced to prison. (Confession: my first reaction was "Imelda Marcos is still alive?")
So that whole "right to a speedy trial" thing must not be a Philippines thing.

Re: Home $weet Home

Housing prices are officially bonkers right now. There's an 80-year-old, 672-sq ft house in South St. Paul listed for $190K. (I know in some areas that would be a steal in any market, but this is the redneck boondocks of the St. Paul metro, and also it's ST PAUL, not Portland or some shit.) It does...

Re: Home $weet Home

Depends on the room. My living room is long & narrow, so the only place for the TV is over the fireplace. We're sitting far enough away that the height of it really isn't an issue. In those situations I've found it expedient to just put the TV covering the fireplace, not above the mantle. But then ...

Re: Home $weet Home

I'm bummed that in a few years when we're ready to sell our townhouse, things will have crashed and we'll get peanuts for it, but at least we can still live in the area without paying $200K for an old dollhouse. Housing prices rising and falling with interest rates, will not affect whether you can ...

Fiction, usually mysteries or PG Wodehouse.

I will allow zero shade to be thrown at PG Wodehouse. ZERO!
You misinterpret. I am sighing with longing.

I once had a gf that read Douglas Adams to me though.

Off Ellie's joy of hate, I watched Tiny House Big Living, the Expressive Tiny Art House episode.
Worth the price of admission. The Mother summed it up well "I am inconsolably proud".

Re: Vote or Die

The Senate complaints in their best form make one very accurate and good point: performing well in the Senate does not represent any sort of popular mandate. Trump keeps saying things like an overwhelming majority of voters supported him. This is false. He is going to say that the Republican Senate...

I'm pretty much orthogonal to all you guys, I think. We have a breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen (with a bay even), and a small table in it. We have a separate dining room on the other side of the kitchen with a normal door opening, but it's then got an archway to the living room. We have a 10...
