Little boxes, in the bathroom, little boxes filled with I-don't-know-what

My house suffers from Pink Bathtubitis too, so I really shouldn't raise an eyebrow at this listing Karen found. What are you going to do, after all? You've got a house to sell, the bathroom is pink, you're not going to remodel. All you can do is carefully frame the photo so you get in your collection of collections and hope for the best.

View all 5 pictures:

Let me see..what to show...what to show...2 bathroom shots...2 of the same outside panoramic view and 1 glam shot of the front of the house. (No one would even care to see the kitchen or the bedrooms)

Stanley Kubrick must have been involved in setting up that elaborate angle in the pink bathroom pic (I'm thinking a crane was involved?). All it needs is a peony pink monolith...

..and Suzy wondered why it took her 2.5 hours to find her makeup every morning....("It's in one of these drawers!")

We are about to redo our bathroom...I am so inspired by this lovely shade of pink.

Just found your blog through Perplexikon. I love it.

Two toilet rolls? That's just greedy.

I've got the pink bathroom at home too, but my complaint about this one is the size! I would feel sooooo claustrophobic in there, and the boxes sure don't help!

*Raises hand* Aren't there earthquakes in California? Wouldn't that make stacking a veritable Jenga tower right next to the commode rather inadvisable?

"We lost Jack in the last 'quake."

"But it was just a minor one...how...why...what?"

"He was crushed in a falling tower of Alpha Hydrox creams, and Tupperware organizers...I can't talk about it anymore! *Sob!*"

Here's an idea homeowners: Unless you are Tammy Faye, no one needs that must junk in their bathroom. Embrace the natural you.

Those boxes are actually business traveler bunks, like the kind in Japan, for the miniature businessmen that live in your house. Some nights they're too drunk to go back to their homes under your bed so they sleep it off in the stacked bunks.

It also looks as though there is no ceiling in the bathroom??

It looks like they've organized their reading material for extended periods on the throne, a strategy used by the anal retentive when they're not being so anally retentive.

Alissa said...

Burhanistan, it must have been a giant business traveler who took that crazy shot or perhaps all the tiny businessment climbed up on each other's shoulders to achieve that perfect angle.

Here's another thought. Aside from the fact that the ONLY interior shots are of the bathrooms...there's 3 bathrooms in the house. They posted photos of two. Does that mean the third is actually worse than the pepto-bismol pink one? I can sympathize, though, as one of the bathrooms at my house inexplicably has a pink bathtub with green tile.

T said...

that looks a lot like my scrapbook room... although it seems pointless to keep it acid free if you're not bothering to keep it potty free...

That shower curtain amuses me. It's got like a little window in it so you can see out, but nobody can see in to the important bits. It's a good way to do a bit of recon on any intruders before they actually see you nakie.

Also, gee, maybe a few more handrails are called for in there? Not to mock anyone that actually needs them but in just how many directions are they planning on falling at once?

It must be for their geriatric uncle who used to travel with the circus as the human superball.

I guess the bathroom really has no storage what so ever.....

When the bathroom in my house was remodeled in 1956 (according to the date on the sink I threw out), it had pink fixtures with lime green tiles. I understand this was a popular color combo of the time.

Also popular back then were plastic tiles. There were some pieces of the old tiles left on the walls from a previous remodeling and they are 100% plastic, glued to the walls and grouted just like the fancy ceramic tiles we used before and after plastic tiles came and went.

1. Not a fan of the pink bathrooms. A bathroom the color of pepto-bismol would make me nauseous (but i would already be in the bathroom, so i guess it's ok)

2. I am really intrigued by the rest of the house. There are 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a kitchen and Family/Living/Dining rooms and the best pictures they could give is the pink bathroom and the backyard twice.

3. Nobody needs that many boxes of junk in the bathroom. At all.

But i do need 3+ shower bars. It's where i practice gymnastics. I was a giant superball

4. I know it's pretty odd because i know its a cartoon, but i find Callisto kinda hot.

Loonytick said...

Worst of all to me is this bathroom seems to have NO DOOR. The photographer had to stand on the toilet to get the shot, which indicates that there probably isn't a door behind him/her.

And if there is, then the bulk of the doorway is blocked by the TOILET.

Stuart said...

I just can't get past what it would feel like going to the bathroom inside a large cubical stomach.

The downfall of the sleek pedestal sink!!! and I think I want to go watch an old episode of Weeds:)

"But i do need 3+ shower bars. It's where i practice gymnastics. I was a giant superball"

Or you're over sixty or disabled?

Because I would mark a house UP for having those bars.

sarah jane said...

my MIL's bathroom looks EXACTLY like that, minus a few tiles! she even has the plastic storage things stuffed who-know-what!
weird. who on earth thought pink toilets would still be pretty in 20 years?

Grace said...

"Ticky Tacky" fits so well here.


*goes away humming*

Chazya said...

its a house of the risen sun, there is the sun room and the sun room and two bathrooms. oh and the front yard is pretty nice.

why do they need a pink shower curtain when there is a glass door for the shower? does it not work?

Tony Paul said...

Am I the only one to have notices that all those boxes are transparent... and empty?

Okay, I am exceedingly, exceedingly late to the post ... like everything else in my life. But I'm thinking the woman of the house is a scrapbooker and has completely run out of space in her craft room and had to put her stuff SOMEWHERE. (This is not autobiographical, BTW. In any shape or form ...) Okay, at least the bathroom I had to put my extra stuff in has CABINETS with DOORS on them to hide the boxes!!!
