Worst decor trends ever

I feel good (better) about my early 2000s decor (which we still think is cool, but really is getting sad) after seeing this hilarious slideshow. Here’s a preview:

The most posh bedroom decor ever, and a total Man-Magnet!  (do note the negligee on the ottoman. This is actually an ADULT bedroom.)

This one’s like having the sun burning right in your room!

Plaid is a can’t miss attention-getter:

Every house has a staircase that could use attention:

Jazz up that tired open floor plan:

We recently succumbed to cashier pressure and signed up — paid actual money for –a B&N discount card. We haven’t calculated our break even point, but as a way to increase sales, B&N has it down. What we won’t pay for a 10% discount.

I’m due for a new NYT Sunday Crossword Omnibus. Actually, I’m re-buying ones I’ve already done because my memory is shit. I have an addiction, OK? They relax me, remove me from the day. So I went online. Look what I found! […]

Short short fiction: write about a welcome

A Welcome 
By Laurie Freehafer

“What the hell happened!??”

“Son, you caught your death.
You picked at it and it never got well.
You put your eye out.
You stuck something in your ear smaller than your elbow.
You went outside with a wet head.
You squeezed your pimples and cracked your knuckles.
Your face froze that way.
Your eyes stayed crossed.
You made your parents pay to heat the outdoors.
You sat too close to the television.
You tripped over your toys and broke your neck.
‘Everyone else’ jumped off a cliff and you did too.
You thought your folks were made of money.
You made her turn the car around.
She counted to three but you still didn’t go to bed.
You went out dressed like that.
You didn’t have anything nice to say but you said something at all.
You made her come over there.
You made her call your father.
You had an answer for everything. In the end, you didn’t have clean underwear on and there was an accident. A bad one, son.”

“What ever happened to presumed innocent?”

“Oh, we already know you’re guilty. We’ve been watching you not listening to
your mother since you were born.”

“CHRIST! This is so bizzare!
Oh shit, my mother always said if I took the Lord’s name in vain I’d be
catching the next train to hades. Is this the gates of hell? Who are you?”

“It doesn’t matter who I am, and no, you’re not in trouble. We don’t take
sending people to hell lightly around here, you know.

What happened was this: You didn’t listen to your mother, so you died.  We see a lot of this around here. To be frank, your mother seemed a little smug at your funeral. And she’s blue in the face, you know. From all the warning.”

“But , like, where am I? I don’t know what’s ahead for me, um, if there is anything ahead for me, and I have no idea YIKES!!! I’m fucking FLYING! What the hell! Wheeeeeeeee!”

“Welcome to Afterlife, son.”
