*sigh*


There's something about this listing that makes me feel... sad. A bit down in the dumps. Mildly unhappy. No, that's not it... melancholy? My hopes have been unfulfilled. :( . Things just don't feel right. I'm feeling the pressure of the times. I'm gloomy. I'm as melancholy as a gib cat, as grave as a mustard pot. Looking at the photo just makes me feel...

Nope, can't come up with the word, sorry.

And I guess that's why they call it the doldrums!

I feel obligated to quote Eiffel 65.

Inside and outside blue his house
With the blue little window and a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and hisself
And everybody around cause he ain't got
Nobody to listen to


Now we finally know who this song was about.

I just smurfed myself.

Seasick?

evilcupcakes said...

Wow, this is just a few blocks from my house. With that color scheme and the rain, it's like living in an aquarium.... full of candy fish.

♥ Bekki said...

Makes me feel like I'm living in a fish bowl or an underwater world.

I'm getting seasick just thinking about it

This is freakily like the house at the end of 2001 A Space Oddysey.

At least, it's what I remember it to be like - I was slightly delerious after sitting the entire way through that movie.

Lynne said...

but what is the shadow on the wall? the reflection of a prehistoric monster?

That's the really scary part.
Besides the blue.

The seaweed is always greener
In somebody else's lake
You dream about going up there
But that is a big mistake
Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more are you looking for?
Under the sea, under the sea!

Is that a weird angle, a huge door, or a small everything-else?

....MUST....
PAINT IT AL BLUE....

Damn you voice in my head!

What is worse: The blue rooms, the wood paneling, the shagadelic carpet,or the scaary medicine cabinet in the first bathroom?

Meg said...

It's perfect! C'mon, show the mid-century rambler some love, people. Seriously, you know I love the wacky houses.

I did find this funny though. From the photo gallery, pictures showing the grounds:

"Alley access is enjoyed at this home."

Now, I do love a good alley access!

I'm azure that this house will sell for its merits. It may be corn(flower)y, but it certainly has plenty of a-teal. (I had to say this. If I didn't, my wife would, and she produces puns that would fell a mature redwood out of sheer shame.)

Those are some curiously overprocessed pictures... strangely tidey. Though the squashed aspect ratio may get some buyers wanting those 'American' sized doorways.

The red room child was the rebel of the family. Or was that where they were banished for being bad?

The sliding door off the carpeted kitchen into the "rec room" is klassy, too.

Oh my gosh, we forgot to paint the baseboards!

Now... what color goes with blue and blue and blue?

Glory von Hathor said...

I LOVE their bathroom though.

Hmm. If this had been grandma's house, I could have spent many a happy hour sailing the ocean-blue, lost at sea on a sofa cushion, and defending myself from sharks and giant squid.

DBraeges said...

...

I actually quite like it.

...

Stop staring. I'm normal dammit!

Chris said...

The bedroom carpets are ... eyecatching.

Anonymous said...

Blue on the floor, walls and ceilings. I can't help but think you'd feel as if you were being ingested by blue while in that room.

bikergeek said...

I came here for the Eiffel 65 references and I am not disappointed.

I'm blue, dah bo dee dah bo dah....

Brendan said...

It reminds me of an Ames Room -- where the person standing in the far corner looks twice the size of the person in the near corner --

Ames Room

okay, is it just me, or does the whole pic look photo shopped in some way?

Cyan?

Ummm...Yeah said...

UMMM, is that carpet on the ceiling?

Anonymous said...

Oh my god - the condo my husband bought right after I started dating him had this color scheme. Except the walls were either stark white or the color of the carpet. Or in the charming case of the bathroom, a bad sponge-painting attempt with both.

You just gave me flashbacks. The painting we did...

Tarmie said...

I ... feel like I'm drowning. ... In blue jelly (or jell-o, depending on where you're from). Urk.
