colour your world.

...or rather colour MY world.

Sorry for the lack of blogginess from me these past few days. Aside from nursing my other half over the weekend from a serious flu bug... he's doing better now thankfully, the poor wee guy had a fever for 2 days...

... I am as I said on Friday on Vacation. But what am I doing with my time you may ask???

-Lounging on the roof, basking in the summer like weather? No.
-Sleeping? No.
-Catching up on reading a good book (or two)? No.

...I am painting our condo. And it's going s-l-o-w-l-y... After two full days I've only accomplished to get the ceiling and walls done in the Livingroom/diningroom/kitchen/hallway.... Yea OK that's a lot but when it's only really one humongous room you can't help but focus on the ONE ROOM part... let me just say this... Open Concept sucks ass! As does a room with eight, corners eight doors and 2 windows, and nine foot ceilings.

Anyhoo, Tomorrow I do the Trim and the big-ass room(s) will be done. Then it's The Computer/spare room on Thursday and hopefully the bedroom on Friday. Then the bathroom can bloody well wait til the following weekend cause damnit I need a day off from my vacation...

Ouuuu and demain I'm chowing down with N@ and Ma... YAY! a chance to get out of my painting gulag and talk to N@ face to face instead of face to radio... heh

OK, well time to hit the hay. I gotta get up early and get to painting again...

So what's new in your world? (what colour is it?)

...speaking of colour... I swear I want my next job to be the person who names paint colours, because damn it... it's been ages since I smoked up....

Here's a rundown of our colours...
-Livingroom/dining room is "Cornerstone" A sorta carmelly-creamy-earthtone.

-Computer room is "Palm Breeze" A sorta light sagey green.
-Bathroom is "Breaker" a sorta pale blue.

-And Bedroom is "Unicorn White" (you know us fags and our unicorn obsession! HA!) it's a sorta pale brownish gray.

-Then ALL trim and doors are "Popped Corn" a faint off white... and here's where we went crazy ass... the ceilings...
... all "Ceiling White" Ain't we rebels!

-And there will be one accent wall between Dining Room and Kitchen in "Ruby Red"... oddly enough.. it's Blue. NOT! It is the reddist red you ever did see!

@ maria: happy birthday!!
& a piece of cake wouldn't kill you. never had anyone come to the ER because they had birthday cake... have some. just "some"!!
:D~

@ M-K: "breaker" sounds nice as a name, but your "unicorn" thing-y sounds better, the way you describe it. as for white ceilings, yes, you are a rebel!!! since fashion currently still dictates colored ceilings... that'll pass quickly enough though...
good recovery to didier! nothing worse on this planet than a sick man...

I have been in the process of painting my apartment for the last two years... I like to go at my own pace and I am also pretty lazy. The apartment used to have tons of colour in it and I have repainted most of it white. I knows it's incredibly boring but I went through a phase where I bought a lot of animal print accessories and fuzzy, fluffy things so I think it all balances out. Sometimes I think I would like some colour in my world and then I think "No, I would rather take that nap".
Good luck Miister Kitty!

I'm with the gnome - neutral colors & then I jazz the place up with art and wall hangings and stuff. Choosing paint and the thought of painting make my head hurt.

My head always hurts. Maybe it's too jam-packed with voices.

Ma's head hurts lately, too.
