wasn't planning on blogging tonite, but i just had to share this! i was sitting here watching "my first place" on hgtv. they were showing a young couple through a few different houses, and the woman was completely turned off by a "tacky" marble fireplace. so, she says, "well, why can't they just-- instead of marble, put, like, a bunch of wood around this fireplace?"

to which her husband delicately broke the three seconds of awkward silence by saying... "uhm... maybe not the best idea to surround a fireplace with so much... wood."

"ohh," she says, "right. yeah."


the five things i fell in love with today...

1) hgtv.
2) the smell of a good fireplace.
3) not currently having a fireplace, and, therefore, not having to chop wood.
4) come to think of it, living in such a tiny apartment and, therefore, not having a whole lot to vacuum.
5) when someone says something really dumb and it's not me.

song of the day...
"a million fireflies" by the midway state

movie of the day...
"chariots of fire"

  1. ...and in those few seconds before he explained about the absurdity of a wood surround on a fireplace, he either seriously questioned his choice in a mate....or remembered why he fell in love with her in the first place.
