This and that

Since it's a slow news weekend, I'll catch you up on our latest addition to the bedroom. In the picture you see the new window that we had installed between the bedroom and bathroom. If you'll recall, we bought this place from a pornstar and he and his wife had "fixed up" the building to be some kind of brothel. At least the two studio apartments were. They were all decked out with tasteful (okay cheesy, but not raunchy) nude photos of themselves. Anyway, in our apartment which is the one that they lived in, they made it so there was an opening between the shower and the bedroom. Fail. This made it so that you could never really have a poo in privacy because anyone could poke their head through and have a look. And of course sounds and smells travel easily through open spaces. We always thought it was weird and now finally that hole has been plugged. We opted for clear glass instead of frosted for two reasons. One, they wanted like $250 more for frosted glass and two, we liked the idea of being able to cusotmize a design on it. So what we've got now is a (I don't know how to call it) stained glass look applied. It's translucent and easily removable. It's nice to have a shower now without all the cold air rushing in from everywhere too.

I was flipping the other night and happened by Fox news for a moment. Somebody was shrieking some kind of non-truth, but I can't recall exactly what, and I just thought why don't they make their slogan "Biased and Proud"? I mean at least I could respect them a bit more. Fair and balanced? Hardly.

Oh my gosh you guys, I got the nicest email ever yesterday from someone who stumbled upon the blog by misclicking a link on someone's blogroll. He then whiled away his Sunday reading the archives and sent me a nice letter of appreciation. My favortite part of his letter was this: I have spent my complete whole lazy Sunday (well into this nightly hour) reading your blog. Laughing out loud, caring, chuckling, link-clicking, crying, being jealous, not caring that much, relating, whining, farting, deciding I want to move to Canada, clicking 'next page' religiously, summarizing yet another year of your blog to my boyfriend, being mesmerized, reading some more and finally decided to write you this quick message.
Thanks so much Peter for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed it!

Finally, some Georgie porn for ya. Happy Monday peeps. I'm off to work, enjoy your day off Americans!

A window from the bathroom to the kitchen?! Holy doodles!

wcs said...

So is that bed in your kitchen? I'm confused...

tornwordo said...

Wait, what? Did I mistype? Yes I did. Between the bedroom and the bathroom. Oops, I'll fix it now.

Mel said...

Everybody knows bathroom windows should be to the outside so the neighbours get a show.

Jabacue said...

Interesting set up! I like the
`artwork` on the window. Did you guys do it...

Birdie said...

I'm still trying to figure out WHY someone would want an opening between the shower and the bedroom that is only a window. I mean, if access is your desire, wouldn't you just take down the wall (and enclose the toilet)? And how is it that I've been reading your blog for about two years and I'm just hearing about the prior owner? Is there a link to the tale? This is hilarious.

Georgie looks coy. Another cute explosion.

CoffeeDog said...

The things the prior owner did...bizzare

That is Georgie's sexy pose.

I like the window framing and your glass-painting technique (play HGTV and tell us what it is!). However, why did you have a window installed, rather than covering the opening with drywall? Are there lighting problems in the bath, or do one of you like playing voyeur?

And I can almost hear Georgie's thought process: "Do I stay here, or do I go try to get some attention and/or treats off my other dad?"

A Lewis said...

Hey, how does this sound to you -- Maybe when we have a holiday down here and I have a day off, I should come up and doggy sit Georgie while you have to work. Deal??

Rick said...

I too am astounded that this is the first time I'm hearing about a former porn star owning your house. Maybe I missed it but...

Lemuel said...

Georgie has the "aside to the camera" look on his face as if he is going to let us in on all your secrets. :-D

Mark My Words said...

Did you say pornstar?

Rebekah said...

How come no one else noticed the window looks decorated with...um...you know... the stuff that belongs in the toilet? I'm sure close up it has a pattern, but it looks like something spattered on it.
:)

Phronk said...

It looks much better in the big version of the picture, but Rebekah's spatter comment made me lol. :)

Weirdest place for a window I've ever seen.

Georgie looks very intelligent in that picture.

GayProf said...

Maybe they hoped to have some sort of drive thru service?

Blobby said...

To be honest, I thought the exact same thing Rebekah did....and it is after all - YOU, so it could stand to reason.

I must not have read far back enough of the pornstars, but I did get the story when I grabbed a drink w/Torn.

As for Georgie - is it possible for him to takeke a bad pic?

Dean Grey said...

tornwordo!

My couldn't you just drywall over the opening?

To bad the porn star didn't come with the house , he is a hottie ..

Serge should just turn on a light and you should put up dry wall in the space , it makes no sense at all and really would only make me nervous about pinching a loaf when company was in the house , even if it's in the bedroom .

Patricia said...

You're very good at getting Georgie to look in the camera. Indi rarely holds still long enough. Or else I have alarmingly slow reflexes.

I'm sure it's the Indi thing.
