  1. Oh, how I love “The X-Piles!” It’s a good thing I am alone right now, I am laughing so hard that tears are sqeezing out.
    “Molder” and “Sullied”

  2. hysterical! this is the one I would watch most: • Trashing Spaces

    he he. I always wonder what those beautiful homes look like a few months later! and where is all their STUFF!?!?

  3. It’s sad to say but I am one half of an oddly compatible couple. Sigh. You might just as well send the camera crews over.

    This was hilarious, btw, as was your sci-fi suggestion over at my place. Low Supply-lons. Ha!

  4. flying-
    Thanks! It always makes my day when I can make someone cry.

    Maybe I’ll take up TV programming if this grad school gig doesn’t pan out…

    Yeah, once the stuff moves in, the house never looks the same again.

    I’m afraid that John and I are also an oddly compatible couple. We keep waiting for someone to come in and pick up after us. (And glad you enjoyed my BSG show at your place. Your post was a hoot.)

    I think it’s the chaos that inspires me. I don’t think you’d want lessons.
