Painted Up Like A $2 Whore.




Not really, but that title should get a little traffic, right?




This post is late today. I have been painting. HHH and I decided that the living room and kitchen need some personality, so it was off to Lowe's we went yesterday. I think it looks good. I had to prime the baseboards and let them dry out before painting them a "Snowbank" white. They were a shit brown, not a color I would have chosen, but I don't own the place. When we moved in, it hadn't been repainted, so the landlord was OK with us making it look good. We picked a color that resembles frappaccino for the walls. Yes, I know. I have coffee on the brain. It looks like a frappaccino with whipped topping! Yummy! For the kitchen, I went with a sunny yellow with a light blue for the trim and cabinets. The cabinets are sooooooo ugly, but they are sturdy and work well, so I don't actually want to go to the rouble to replace tham, especially since we are renting. Paint is about as far as I go to make a place look better. That, and landscaping. Planting and pruning makes me feel less stressed, more calm and happy! In a way I am kind of painted up. I tend to get the paint on the wall and myself. Just call me Spot!




Just a quick little observation. Yesterday I wrote about how my Hot Hunky Hubby put my back out while we were..... ahem..... otherwise occupied and I thought a post about sex would have everyone clamoring to comment and put in their two cents. Nope! I had about 31 hits. Now the day before where I wrote about my dog being a chickenshit, and my anniversary with HHH.......I got 134 hits??!!?? Weird, but it restores my faith in humanity's morals. We may just be a society that isn't bent up on sex. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!




I gotta get this paint off......

The Net is just weird.

Love the color, it looks yummy. And the white baseboards add just the right touch, and contrast nicely with the carpet, too.

There's no rhyme or reason to the internet. I've had posts I've slaved and sweated over, and had no comments, and had something I just toss out there get twenty comments.
It's frustrating sometimes, but I try to just go with the flow.

I just figured "sex sells" and all that. HHH had been asking why I don't post on our sex life like other bloggers, so I figured that after a 134 lookie day, a post on how I put my back out doing the naughty with him would really light it up on here, but alas, no it did not. Hmph! See if I post on my sex life again!
