Don't invite Lentil


"Honey, I'm home! What's for dinner?"

"Lemons."

"Lemon chicken?"

"No. Lemons."

"Greek Lemon Soup?"

"No. Lemons."

"Salmon with lemon garnish?"

"No. Lemons. Just lemons. It's a cry for help. Grab some forks, will you?"

Hmmm... it's in Celebration, Florida, so perhaps that explains the giant wine glass.

The jury's still out on the lemons, though.

Okay, so we know someone's been watching the HGTV, which gets them bonus points for trying. They just don't seem to get it! Designers on HGTV do this, but only AFTER they've decorated the room. Unless this is another place with a restrictive covenant against paint in some color other than white!

Ohh, I could just see my kids running into that room and glass and lemons going everywhere!

At first I thought, "Giant wineglass filled with lemons ... what's up with that?" But then I realized that the giant wineglass managed to completely distract me from the tininess of the room, so now I'm thinking that the giant wineglass is kind of genius. I'm even considering stealing the idea for my tiny bathroom.

Lemons. From Chernobyl.

A meal consisting of nothing but lemons at a table you'd have to be a size 0 to sit at.

This is either Renee Zellweger's home or the stupidest diet plan since Deal-a-Meal.

What a waste of a lovely giant wine glass... Now if they had poured a good fruit forward Zinfandel in it, I would have already bought the house. Hands down.
Face down... after drinking out of that glass.

Hey, Old Sneep has to live somewhere, you know.

The Lentil reference is absolutely perfect. The lemons remain a bad idea.

Do they know nothing about scale and proportion? You have a tiny two-seat table so you make it look even tinier by sitting the largest wineglass in the world on top of it. Aside from the misfire on the centerpiece, the condo looks really cute.

But I like limes!

Is that picture on the wall a lemon too?

Aside from the scale problem, it also draws attention to the fact that the pictures are hung at different levels.

But maybe the homeowners were just being prepared in case Nicolas Cage burst in with the Declaration of Independence and asked for the juice of a dozen lemons to decode the ancient, nonsensical hidden message on the back, just like in "National Treasure."
