You guys leave the best comments–I really love reading them. As I say on the About Me page–Hooked on Houses is 100% ad-free, so comments are the only payment I receive, and I appreciate every single one! Here are a few that were interesting or made me laugh this month:
1. Written by JLB in response to A House as Big as Utah:
I really liked the foyer but other than that it was like the set of Cinderella or something. I am sure with a place that big a few singing mice who also clean would be a real plus.
And to think, the jeans I’m wearing at this very moment contributed to the purchase of one of the lightbulbs in his home…. Makes me tear up a little.
You forgot the fake food that is glued down. I’m personally a sucker for the wine glasses with fake wine inside.
I know you are going to win…but if for some reason they pick me, I promise to put all my cereals and pastas in glass jars. You will see when you come visit for the weekend!
5. Written by TraceyB in response to HGTV Dream Home Winner Stephanie Dee:
What is with that woman? That’s all the enthusiasm she could muster? It was like the host had shown up at her door to sell her some insurance.
When we were surprised by a third pregnancy last summer, everyone else kept asking us if we were going to sell, feeling that our house (four bedrooms, although one we’ve converted, and two baths) couldn’t possibly accommodate a family of five. I grew up in a 1000-SF ranch with one bathroom and five family members, so I just can’t see the need — especially in this market — to upgrade right away. And the baby’s small. She can sleep in a drawer for a few months at least.
7. Written by Bonnie Morscher in response to The House Always Wins: Book Giveaway:
Why do I love this blog? Um, hello! Houses. Lots of houses. Houses I love and houses I hate. Houses that belong to famous people and houses that don’t. Houses. That’s why I love the blog.
I too, am guilty of painting a room “apple” only to end up with a horrific “shrek” color. However, we referred to it as atomic green.
Wouldn’t it be great if whoever bought this palace converted it into a shelter for homeless disabled veterans or something like that?
10. And finally, again from the always-entertaining JLB, comes what I think should be the new tagline for this blog:
OMG. This site is like crack!
