12:58 pm - New dinette: OMGPIX
It's a little bit oversized for the space, but I really like it! (All pics are clickable for 4x increased resolution.)



This is the only pic of the bunch that you can see the underlying color of the chairs at all - they're a sort of "stone" color, but it's tinged with a very pale green that doesn't show much. Which I rather like - subtlety and a sort of restrained ethic works for me. Except, of course, when it comes to my electronics; but we already know all about that right?






Here we are standing behind the counter, looking across the breakfast area into the living room. You can just see the reading room (originally intended for a small formal dining room) to the left, behind the humidor on the other countertop.





Now we're looking in the other direction - standing on the steps down into the living room, looking across the breakfast area and into the kitchen proper.





I decided to snap a pic or two of the reading room while I was at it, since in theory at some point I could decide to put the table in there. On the way there, I encountered the wily cat-beast, and decided that perhaps people would appreciate a picture of it in its native habitat.





So, this is the reading room - the hallway where Tom was (leading to the front door) is behind us; that's the front yard through the picture window to the left. The dinette would fit the space more comfortably in this room, but it certainly wouldn't go anywhere near as nicely.





The reading room again, this time looking in from the breakfast area. That's the front yard dead ahead. The room is *not* in any way dark though, it just looks that way because the camera was pointing at the picture window in the sunshine - the actual lighting is as it appears in the last picture.





Unrelated in any way, and in fact not even taken at the same time: Tom watching his own personal television, and his personal television watching him right back.





Can't you see I'm watching TV, here...?

But now you can fall and crash through a glass table.

Protip: guests who break furniture will be invoiced.

  1. That fucking plate had it coming.
    • LOLI HAET PIZZA
    • That's what it gets!
  2. I also owe you one sleeping bag.
  3. I owe Karen $10.00 USD for eating that mound of salt.
  4. I owe your mom a fiver for services rendered--although I think five dollars is gracious considering the poor service.

I think that's all for now...

What did you do to his sleeping bag that would ruin it enough for you to have to buy him another one?

Ha! To all of that. I'm adding you to my read list as a Great and Fantastic Reward for making me laugh.

Yeah, but if that happens, it's comforting to know that there's a first-aid kit and a person willing to dress wounds nearby.

I think you should carry a foot-long syringe around in your first aid kit just to fuck with people.

"A splinter? I got this!"

Also, I think that new table needs to be christened with a Poker Night.

Me: This weekend, I'll be in New York, and next weekend I have some possible plans with my sisters (they are flakey so who knows), but I'm feeling a poker night a Jim's sometime soon to break in his table.
Chris: I read that as break his table
Me: hah
Me: we don't need poker for that.
Chris: it's as good a reason as any
Me: we'll just invent some retarded-ass game involving bouncing shit off of it
Me: It'll be like russian roulette
Me: who can bounce the heaviest object off of it without breaking it
Chris: I totally support this idea

When you described the table and chairs, I'm pretty sure I actually cringed. But I love it in your space!!!! It goes so well :)

And I LOOOOVE your reading room! <3 hardwood floors <3

I never thought I'd like so much white and neutral. Your house is really nice and why is that furry ball of love not lying in the sun ?

Also, you did really well with your dining room set but I've dealt with glass tables before, and I couldn't keep up with them. This is the same reason I really regret buying an iPod Nano with a shiny silver back. I CAN'T TAKE THE PRESSURE of it not being pristine !

The wily cat-beast cannot be predicted.

My roommate just fed him three shreds of turkey, one shred of jalapeno havarti, and one shred of (sigh) clean paper towel.

I was far more surprised about him eating the cheese than the paper towel. That was a lock-in. Paper, plastic bags... he loves 'em.

Chris is all OCD about stuff that smudges too. I think of that as one of the prime benefits of having selected a glass table: the hours and hours of entertainment watching my roommate frantically polishing it!

That explains why he polishes his knob so much!

The new set looks great where you have it. And I really like your kitchen - I am hugely in favor of lots of white in kitchens for some OCD reason, so yours meets my high and strange standards nicely. I think we have the same oven and dishwasher, too.

Tom is a beautiful cat, and I never tire of seeing him and Molly watching eachother through the glass.

Nice house! Love the hardwood.

But do you have MONKEYS!!!1 on a tapestry in your living room? Probably not!

Man, you really were scopin' hard if you even spotted the dishwasher. Well done. And thanks, I really like it too. That is offically now my favorite room of the house. Looks wise at least!

Nope, I do not have any monkey tapestries, so you TOTALLY WIN!

Seems to fit nicely, although I'd have to see the chairs in person to really comment.

Maybe after I find a new place to call home for a while, of course I want a place where I can install a large antenna

nah, lease is up in may, and we're kind of tired of living in a shit hole, and with a new decent paying job, I can afford more than 200 bucks a month on rent.

Trying to find a nice 4 bedroom or something with some other people, which will give me a project of having a network to control as well as my pet project of a new server, and running a mini domain for backups for all.

The house looks great, and the animals are way adorable. The only criticism I would have about the dining area is that it might be a little too neutral. Adding a darker centerpiece to the table might add some contrast. Other than that it's great, and I really like the style of the chairs.
