Nobody does, and yet, they make them. So somebody buys them. And then, see, what happens in a few years when that green chandelier that was so drool-worthy becomes dated and tacky? They go out and buy ANOTHER different one, and then re-work the whole room and spend $150,000??!! Who lives like this? Celebrities? No wonder they need to make so much per movie.
I could be wondering because I need to find the right fixture for my living room that looks up-to-date, and yet not so modern that I can’t live with it for the next 30 years.
MY FEAR: What if I get my house exactly the way I want it, and then never ever touch the design, and live in a house that my kids/other people secretly think is the ugliest thing ever? And then when they’re grown, I can say “Oh, remember that kitchen tile that was so pretty?” and they’ll say “You mean that hideous stuff? You PICKED THAT?” And I will hang my head in shame.
I may be afraid of that because I’ve had a similar conversation with my mother, not knowing that she really did heart that fireplace tile.
MY FEAR: I’m too shallow because I care what other people and future versions of my children think about my decor.
MY FEAR: I’ll get the house the way I want it, and spend too much money doing it, and then hate it all in 5 years anyway.
My friend says I’m obsessing over my house because the moon’s in Capricorn (or Cancer?) and to give it a few days and I’ll be over it.
I have asymmetrical lamps in my room now. I’m cool, modern, different. *snort*
You see, I’m thinking all this stuff because if I don’t fill my head up with superficial crap, then my brain goes to what to do with my house in SLC (lease option? find a renter and hope they don’t trash it? Pull it off the market and relist later?
Burn it and take the insurance money?)
And then if my brain doesn’t go there, it goes to the election and all the worst case doom scenarios…What if Obama wins? We’ll become a socialistic country!! Terrorists will attack us all the time!! We’ll be like Europe, except there won’t be any superpower to protect us, because let’s face it! We were it!! DOOM!!! DOOOOMMM!! What if McCain wins? He’ll nuke some random country because their leader looked at him funny, and then they’ll nuke us back! DOOM!!! DOOOOOMMM!!! Either way, we’re under ATTTACKKKKK!!! DOOOOMMMM!!! And then I eat candy. It’s not good, really.
Speaking of candy, doesn’t that chandelier look like apple Jolly Ranchers? Don’t you want some now?
