Personally Spacey

Now that summer is here most everything on TV has turned to reruns. I guess people actually go outside and do, you know, stuff, when the weather is warm.

I've got my Big Love and my Top Chef to keep me happy, but the rest of the time I've been forced to watch home improvement programs on HGTV. Don't get me wrong. I love to see people remake their living rooms for $1500 dollars and the help of a perky size 2 interior designer. It gives me hope. It makes me want to buy spongey paint brushes and decoupage glue.

Besides wearing tiny shirts, a host of a home improvement program must be proficient in the delivery of the most important word in the interior design dictionary. Space. Say it again....Spahhh-accceeee. As in:

"Even though this area is dated, it's such a big spaahhacce."
"Some mirrors on the accent wall will make this spahhacce look larger."


It's a ROOM. It's not undefined! It's a living room, a family room, a bathroom, a kitchen, a bedroom, a freakin' redwood deck with some mosquito netting. It's not just space! Gah! Stop saying "space"...just stop it!

I would like to visually define "space" for my readers and other hangers on.

The final frontier. Klingons around uranus.

Emptiness denotes the concept space, right? (My apologies to Paris Hilton.) Park here.



I only add the last photo because I just recently remodeled my myspace space. I painted. I put up curtains. I fluffed up all my accent pillows. It's fabulous.

Finally, I will add an impressive space that is bound to make some folks particularly happy they came over to AMHW today.

You're welcome.


  1. Whoah! Is the real and for actual Jon Lovitz one of your MySpace friends!? I went to his MySpace and it looked legit... that just blows my mind!

  2. You have found some mighty interesting examples of space. I thank you.
