TOK goes to the Movies, again

    " Yippee Ki Yay, Mother......" . This Monday, we're back at the movies, movie quotes to be exact. "It's a dangerous business, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no telling where you might be swept off to",  so, "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night"
 

     If you're thinking, "I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore", you'd be exactly right. I moved. To Oshawa, affectionately know as the 'Schwa. I took the plunge and moved to the 'burbs. Didn't know the area, don't really know anyone out here, was more than a little apprehensive having been a downtown boy for soooooo many years. But you know, I love it here. "It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself". "Don't ever let somebody tell you...You can't do something." Let me show you around.


      Come on in, grab a seat, relax a little in the living room. We can have a chat. Well, you know what they say: if you don't have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me!



    Here's the side view of the living room. Looks like the mirror is not going to say. We're thinking gas fire place on the feature wall. Big built in mantle. Yes?


     From the couch in the living room, you can see to the kitchen. There are very few full walls in the new house.

"Gimme some sugar, baby."
Sure if you've got the arms of an orangutan.
Who builds out cupboards to the depth of the fridge?


Now I know you're all jealous of my custom built kitchen, but... "There's three ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way and the way that I do it." This is a recurring theme in the house. I'm not sure who the DIYer was. “ I appreciate it, but I don't accept it. ”


"But you are, Blanche! You are in that chair! ”

      The dining room is right off the kitchen, one large room really. And speaking of those chairs, let me tell you how much I hate that dining room set. It looked  good in the showroom, not so good in the old house or the new one. I was very disappointed it didn't get lost or damaged in the move. That's pretty much it for the main floor. Time to move up stairs.

  1. Thanks for the tour! I love the wide windowsills you have the plants on, and the tub and the black and white kitchen! As for the attic, I hope you are able to find an old forgotten treasure up there!

    1. Thanks Ellen. I know, who can mange with 11 outlets on three floors? Not me. No attic window to make things easier. I can't figure why they bothered to put all that stuff up there in the first place.

    1. Thanks Rory. Went just a bit overboard there. A little AH right back at ya, "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son" LOL

  6. Yes, "I'll think about that tomorrow" should be the mantra of anyone who buys an old home. Which are the only ones we have ever bought. Much to my husbands chagrin. I really get the lack of outlets thing. Don't ever want to think about extension cords being a fire hazard. Congratulations!

  13. Love your take on this! I'm a little slow, so it took me to the Napoleon Dynamite to grasp what you were doing. Sigh.

  15. Wonderful list! Now you left me hanging. Who said, ""There's three ways to do things, the right way, the wrong way and the way that I do it." That is totally my motto - I want to see the movie.

  16. Ok, this was, by far, my favorite take on the listicles. Fandamntastic job on this! I am still working on a couple of the quotes--might have to call DD3 who is our movie buff...I don't think there's ever been a movie made that she cannot quote word-for-word. Well done!

  17. HOLY MOLY I LOVE THIS POST! Talk about clever. I'm in awe. Love the lines love the house love the yard! PARTY bbq garden dinners...I see it all! Is that your bike? What about the turquoise baby bed frame in the attic!
    by the way I don't know "I appreciate it, but I don't accept it." what is it from? I want to use it often....and often as in daily and possibly hourly to my students, kids, husband! Love this site, so glad I found Stash which lead me here!

    1. ROFL, thanks Kerry. I had so much fun putting this all together. The bikes are mine, there are three bed frames in the attic, not mine and I can hardly wait until summer to get out on the deck and in the yard.
      The quote is Humphrey Bogart from Casablanca.
      Isn't Stasha's a great place to hang out and meet new people?
