Chestnuts roasting by an open... uh... hmmm.


Mantelpiece + heatsource = fireplace. Therefore it needs logs. Similarly, I have a drawing of a Jacuzzi over the puddle on my kitchen floor where the ice dispenser leaks, which I say makes it a hot tub, and therefore my "SHOWERS REQUIRED" sign makes total sense.


Oh dear. I was trying to come up with a sleazy house rule for some swinger with a hot tub, and stumbled onto this page, which includes the information that "Our complimentary buffet blows away every Swinger Club in Orlando, with entrees including items such as shrimp, oysters, chocolate covered fruits, fondues, sushi, etc." and now I'm too disturbed to continue my research. Oysters, chocolate-covered strawberries, whatever, like you can tell the difference.

(Found by Sue. And just to be clear: the pink room above is NOT from a club for wife-swappers. Or husband-swappers. Or pet-swappers. Or houseplant-swappers... as far as I know.)

Oh ye of the dirty mind! Yes, the "Taboo Swingers Club" is a little schizy on their mission: "We are not a Swinger Club. ...We DO, however party like a swingers club! We've always got the sexiest, friendliest, and liveliest swingers on earth!"
A close perusal of the home page reveals a photo of the "dance floor." Complete with pole. As used by "swing dancers." Yes. That's it.

It's a cute house though.

The faux fireplace is a decorating ploy, albeit an unusual one. They should just build in a real gas fireplace.

It seems like a good price for that house.

I noticed that pole on the dance floor too.

I didn't notice how they denied being a swinger's club. They are definitely contradictory.

And sleazy.

"solid cherry pool table with competition felt..."

I guess that's best for, um, swinging... at a Swinger Club that is not really a Swinger Club...

I need an aspirin.

"...we don't get pushy like a swinger's club.."

Oh reeaaallly? You don't consider forcing me to look at a pink wall where there should be a crackling fire being PUSHY? It is in my book bubb!!

Oh Orlando---the Kingdom of the Mouse---you have such diverse entertainment venues. Who would need to go anywhere else?

Cute enough house, and really pretty darned cheap with a decent amount of land around it. Admittedly, it looks like a sherbet factory exploded in there.

I don't know. Sure, it's peculiar decorating choice but the place is also neat as a pin. I can't really ding them for a poorly chosen photo. I guess they could have moved the pretend fireplace and snapped the picture, but realistically, at least that mantle distracts from the pinkest pink I've seen.

What was I smokin' this morning?

I now see the house and the Swinger's Club are two different animals. Sort of forget what I said before...this is what I get for multi-tasking before I've had my yogurt.

I think it was a bit unclear, mudslicker, so don't feel bad. I just added a disclaimer.

But look the radiator is right there behind the faux fireplace so the if you just pull up a chair and close your eyes when the heat comes on it could almost work... Just don't stub your toe on the firewood when you get up!

What about fireplace swappers?

Christina said...

The pink and white, the dried flower wreaths, the faux bling chandalier thing...
Was this Paris Hilton's childhood playhouse?
I'm totally seeing dollies and stuffed animals sitting around that table being forced to drink "tea" and eat "cookies."

The swingers' club's next party will have 'finger food' apparently. So, do we think swingers are more or less fussy about the 'no-double dipping' rule with the crudités?

So when you get tired of the dollhouse theme, you can move into the trailer out back?

I vaguely recall something like this being done on Changing Rooms or Trading Places or some other home decorating show about ten years ago. Even if it wasn't, let's blame TV.
