Aug 8, 2009: Red five, sleeping by.

For those of us with Y chromosomes, the photos are self-explanatory.



There are more photos at http://ourvisaliahouse.com/layout.html. Click on bedroom#2 to see them.

brokey linky?

Looks like something out of some computer game. I have no idea.



newtimer  Saturday Aug 8 12:00 PM

Dang it! When I previewed my post, it looked fine. But now I can't see it from the main screen. What gives?

Attached images have to wait for a moderator to turn them into directly-linked images. This is done now.

It's an elevated bed dressed up as a Y-Wing from Star Wars. There's also a Darth Vader helmet on the desk.

My creativity and skill level limits me to the ol' 'fish aquarium in the Packard Bell monitor' I used to have.

I'm impressed by the lack of pillar in the middle of the room holding it up. Apparently the laser cannon on top of the cockpit is hiding a bracket. Clever.

Cool piñata!!

looks like the door will hit it when opened -

It looks like there is a kitchenette in the background, suggesting that this is the studio apartment of a more-or-less independent adult.

Hey, sweetie, wanna come back to my pad and check out my Y-wing fighter bed?
Wait, where are you going? I've got a Darth Vader helmet too!

Wait! I was going to bulls-eye your thermal exhasut port!

There's your mistake. Some women don't like exhaust port sex.


Flint  Sunday Aug 9 11:20 AM

But, I used to bull's-eye womp rats back home... they're not much bigger than that.

Sigh. Looks like another night of flying solo in the cockpit.

"Special" decor sometimes goes the way of the dodo with new owners.

When I was about 12, my parents allowed me to select the carpeting for my room in our new home. I chose two-inch, dark purple shag. Years later, mom and dad were only able to sell the house on condition that they replace the carpet in my bedroom with something remotely normal.

On the flip side, when I sold my condo, the new owners were thrilled with the big jungle mural (painted by my very talented mom) in the guest room.

In the case of the Star Wars room, it's quite possible it will not survive a sale intact. It's a bit.... much.

When we were house hunting in the late 90's for our new home it amazed me how many houses people showed with the most hedious decor or color match. Some of them had really nice design layout in the physical plant but who wants to move in and have to do a ton of work at great expense replacing what is obviously not a popular color selection in paint, carpet, or in the case of Star Wars decor a deal killer in a sale.

Yuppers. In my case, I had the entire condo freshly painted (ceilings too, and that was some job, given that the place had 10-18 foot high vaulted ceilings throughout) before selling, but left the mural in case someone really liked it. I would've been happy to paint it over if it was a deal breaker, but I got lucky and mom's beautiful mural lives on.

We looked at one house that had the most astounding "feature:" the master shower (a wide bathtub-shower, not a skinny standing shower) had a huge picture window set into the wall inside the curtain... which looked not outside, but into the master bedroom. Clear glass. Perfect view from the master bed. The sellers had placed a large armoire in front of it on the bedroom side so it wasn't immediately obvious what you were looking at, but we still declined to purchase that house...

Got a picture Glinda?

I tried painting a jungle scene once.... Sad.. Our bathroom is now painted lime green, purple, brick red, light blue, straight blue, forest green, and burnt orange.

We get a lot of comments. Mostly positive.

But then our sink gets a lot too because I put in a commercial fixture that senses your hand and turns on. The cool part is that you can adjust the temp with a typical looking 30 degree lever on the side. People think that is how you turn ON the water. After turning that with no result they eventually pass their hand thru the sensing zone while fidgeting with the control. We often hear shrieks when the water comes out unexpectantly. MWHAHAHAHA

I think it definitely cuts down on family pandemics.

* I wasn't there to sell the place (I'd moved and was renting it out), so the RE agents did all the digital photographing and I don't have copies. Oddly enough, I don't seem to have taken my own digital photos of it (but do have a few old-timey snapshots). How stupid is that?!
