HGTV is no long boring to me

So I'm on vacation and so far I've watched too much HGTV. When did I get so boring? I remember a few years ago thinking HGTV was the most boring channel on television but now I'm completely obsessed with it.

I saw this one episode of House Hunters from 2007 where this guy bought a new condo with 100% financing and two mortgages for his first place. I wonder how fucked he is right now.

Then I watch a show about remodeling and I'm all oooooh! Look at that flooring!

When I was a kid my birth father used to watch This Old House and take me along with him and my first stepmother when they toured the Parade of Homes. I thought I might leap to my death from the roof of one of those fancy houses just to get away from the torture. I never understood how the fuck they could be interested in this shit. And now - now I think that sounds fun. Eight-year-old me looks at Now me and says "What the fuck have you become?" Eight-year-old me had a foul fucking mouth.

Anyway, it's intriguing to me that I find these things so much more watchable now that I'm looking for a house. And at a party last weekend while others were playing cards I was standing in a remodeled kitchen, asking the host about his Caesar Stone countertops.

When I did I get so boring? What happened?


  1. HAHAHAHAHAHA... well, it happens, Emily. We all get boring at one point in our lives :-(

  2. It's never too late to change back...the revolution awaits...

  3. I've been an addict for years, glad to hear you're enjoying the fix. If it were only as fun as it looks. My next place will be a simple box with a square of sand and rock as a yard, landscaping is such an ass-kicker.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
