An Augtober kind of neighborhood

I don't know about y'all but I feel like I'm living in an alternate universe this summer.  Global warming made August feel like October and now my sinuses are having a hurricane of snot in my head.  I'm having to chew with my mouth open because I can't breathe.  Thanks, Obama.

I cancelled most of my cable so I feel adrift in a sea of 24/7 non-HD Sheldon Cooper reruns and I'm praying for a swift and painless drowning.  

I joined the 21st century and tried this new "online dating" thang for a hot minute only to realize that I must live in a princess bubble of sequins and sunshine because 113% of the available population in my area is either a sociopath, someone who sends me bad poetry or has Jesus as their sassy gay friend.  Sometimes all three at once.  Everyone is illiterate.  Maybe I'll change my profile pic to me chewing with my mouth open...  

Probably get some weirdo who has a chewing fetish. He'll write me a dirty poem about masturbating to my mastication...  Summer of 2013, y'all!

Anychewzles, maybe because my life is currently very surreal I'm having a love affair with this project by Kid Zoom aka Ian Strange.

He's traveling around the country turning real houses into commentary about suburbia and the icon of homes but frankly I just want a big red cartoon house.

Some design bloggers might suggest matching your crown molding to your wall color but we take things to a whole new level around here.

Maybe it's the hurricane of snot and allergy meds in my head but this seems like a fantastic idea.

Oh.  Yes.  I'm sure my neighbors will think my house is marked by gawd because there's a plague inside but I'll be like "Nope, it's art, fuckers!"

They're gonna be even more confused if I tried to burn the Ranch down for ART then...

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Augtober with minimal snot hurricanes.  This weekend I'll be plotting what kind of large scale graffiti I'm going to apply to the exterior of my house.

I bet you're starting to think those suburban neighborhood HOA guidelines are pretty damn beneficial now, huh?!

Tough shit.  This is America. 

Where British people paint our houses for art and we like it.

Already Saucy

Wow I think I must have passed out from all those pills (vitamins) I've been binging on and spirits (sweet tea) I've been funneling because I swear I just blogged a week ago.  I must be overdosing on summer.

I'll be back again in a few days I swear but in the meantime head over to one of my favorite body positive/style blogs Already Pretty.  I'm guest posting about the fun and (maybe a tad) philosophical way in which fashion and interiors are friends.

Just like how Karlie Kloss is probably friends with that room.  Or maybe I want to be friends with that room.  Probably rather be friends with the room than Karlie...

I'm sure she's a lovely person.

But I bet I could cuddle better with the couch.  Just sayin.

So I'll see y'all soon but go check me out hanging with Sally at Already Pretty and make sure to follow Sally on Twitter too.

We're Already Saucy over here so it's a guest blogging relationship that's meant to be.
