It's not them, it's me



I give up. Clearly candy-themed rooms are fine, just fine, and I need to get over my heebie-jeebies. Thank you, Jessy, for finding this Pez-filled room as proof that such things are completely normal.

I didn't know they MADE Pez bedspreads... now I know what to get my neighbor!

God, I am sick of Pez collections. I judge at the County Fair and every single year someone enters one in the Home Arts and Hobby section. Each year they don't understand I end up judging them and absolutely do not think those are unique collections. Ugh.

My first thought was "what a great room to put a sugar addict in." That sugar addict being me. I would easily go into a sugar coma after 1 hour of being in that room and then pass out on the pez bedspread, the wrappers all around me. Shame on whoever who make a tempting taunting room such as that!

As a victim of the kind of aforementioned county fair judging process, I must protest.

Every year I travel to the county fair with 14 stainless steel shock resistant cases full of the most extraordinary dispensers that have ever been displayed at any county fair.

And each year I am voted down by pezaphobes like the previous commentator.

Perhaps anonymous does not appreciate the amount of time and painstaking decisions that go into arranging and organizing a collection like mine. You don't just wake up one morning and decide you are going to exhibit at the county fair.

Perhaps anonymous also does not realize that the founder of PEZ Emanual Pierson Pezwolski helped finance the solidarity movement in Poland which helped lead to the fall of the Soviet Union.

Or that a single PEZ wrapper left behing helped lead to the arrest and conviction of the Lake Watonkan Kissing Bandit in the late '70's.

Or that pummeling pez into a paste and combining it with vinegar and mayonaise is a solution that can be used to ease the sting of fire ant bites.


Even scarier, maybe anonymous does know of Pez's great and patriotic history and just doesn't care!



You don't have to give me a blue ribbon every time, but maybe if you don't start the fair season with the same prejudices this year, I will at least feel like I had an equal shot.

I'm just sayin....

Honestly, the PEZ bedroom is the only room in the condo with any personality! LOL

Holy cow, someone's done their homework on Pez! ^^ I'll add my trivia-- Pez was first designed as a mint for smokers-- the dispensers were designed to mimic lighters.

What? Who the heck figured that out? Do the African bushmen have easy access to Pez and mayonaise (sic)?

I'm amazed that they actually found wall cabinets that display pez dispensers. That's devotion...or obsession.

The eerie bit is that the rest of the place is completely and utterly undecorated. Then, suddenly, the Pez room, with its embarrassment of riches...

I like the humongus crucifix above the bed in the bedroom photo

Oh god I think I went to high school with the guy whose room that is.

PS: I assume this because he was a crazy Pez collector and NOT because I ever set foot in his bedroom. Just to clarify.
