Step One in my quest to become a Crazy Old Lady  
As some may know we're re-doing some of our house (yay, the joys of homeownership...). We have a brand-new lovely yellow stucco and now I have to pick a trim color. I didn't pick it ahead of time, because teeny swatches never look the same when spread all over your house. But now, I'm at the stage where I need to pick.

I could do white (white-ish) trim. It's sort of traditional, especially on my California crackerbox. So it's my fallback if I can't find something else, but I would like not to be a color coward and pick something a bit more ... colorful. So I'm playing around with the color pickers on various paint manufacturer sites and it's great fun. But man are some of them HORRIBLE. People on my street would never speak to me again.

"Oh, there's the crazy lady with the appalling yellow and teal house. Funny, she LOOKED so normal..."

"Let's hurry past, so she won't speak to us!"


In other t.v. news, LIFE continues to amuse me. William Sanderson as a guest star! How can you go wrong? It's not a show I feel I need to devote a lot of attention to, but it's fun. Now if only they would also add Timothy Olyphant from Deadwood, and I'd watch this show forever and ever.

(lallalalala implausible law and police work lalalalala not real -- SEE? WIlling suspension of disbelief at work)

In my other crime show of the week, I'm completely unable to tear myself away from the Hotch angst-fest of Criminal Minds. I'm weak that way, I admit. All the cases so far have reflected rather deliciously on his personal life, and it's awesome to watch him pretend that everything is JUST FINE THANK YOU as he gets wound tighter and tighter. I'm wondering if he snaps and that's how Joe Mantegna gets brought in as a new supervisor.

But I miss Gideon. Nobody else does the little voice-over tags with as much gravitas as Mandy Patinkin. *sniff* But generally, for having to rewrite everything without him, they did a really amazing job considering how quickly it had to be done. Helps having a giant ensemble I guess, but still, good work making it seem almost as if the episodes were written that way all along.

Back to the paint game!

Yellow and teal? *boggles* What were they thinking?

Now if you lived in Wisconsin (like me) the obvious answer would be green to go with your yellow, then you would be sporting true Wisconsin and Packer pride. *gags* Thank the LoK that you are in Cali.

I don't have any color choices for you, but I can say that there is a yellow house with white trim at the end of my old block and it was the cutes house on that street. They used their front-yard garden as their place to play with color, choosing different flowers each year to really spruce up the area. You could always do that if you get the white-ish trim up and you find it bland. :)
