I've spent a lot of the afternoon here. I really oughtn't as it's driving me crazy. Ever since I've been living Away (if not before) I have been searching for my own little home and have failed miserably in this quest. I tend to move every year, from flat to flat to flat, never particularly satisfied with what I've found, always searching for that elusive perfect fit. This website is fucking killing me.

That, and we watched Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations in Istanbul today.  It made me very very sad and very very hungry.

ETA: I really really really want to live in a 1949 train caboose in the forest! I do!

Oh yeah - I would totally live in an old train. There's a train museum south of here with a station and some old trains pulled up to the platform. I'd love to live there.

There's some stuff I love about our house (the high ceilings, all of the light, the pantry, the big yard and deck), but it's not a perfect fit either. Part of me wants a tiny Craftsman bungalow, another part a totally modern loft in an old building, another wants an Airstream trailer, etc.

So, we take the loft in an old building, outfit the kitchen with shiny aluminum bits a la the airstream trailer, and put lovely parquet floors and architectural details in the windows of the rest of it?

I'd say, get an old building with a vast rooftop terrace to park the Airstream trailer on (with fabulous rooftop garden to enhance the experience). One floor of the building could be done up as a totally light and airy modern loft and another could be transformed into a cozy little country house with an Aga in the kitchen and shutters on the windows and whatnot...

Oh, I have the cure for that. Do I ever.

It's www.luriddigs.com and it is NSFW LIEK WHOA.

I mean, REALLY NSFW. BUT--if you're having a variation on the beautiful-home dream, this will wake you up and make you enjoy what you have.

In its essence, it's a couple of gay men proving to teh internetz that no, not all gay men have taste. And it seems like most of the pictures are gained by said men w/o tastes showing off the goods in order to attract company. But all of them have just eye-popping decor. So there.

Have you ever checked out lovelylisting.com? Now that one can cause hallucinations, nightmares AND deeply felt gratitude for one's own digs!

I think I may need to add luriddigs.com to my rss feed!

The blow jobs really enhance the design qualities, btw.

Did you see the one of the guy in the leopard print sling with the leopard-print CAT TOY on the floor just underneath his butt?

(restrains self from pussy jokes)

He does know that cats like to play with dangling things, right?

I remember the leopard print but failed to note the cat toy. I must say that site certainly put me off sex with men for at least a decade.

They really do.

Not sure who told the legions of men on that site (and, hell, most other sites of a similar leaning, straight or gay) that posing with legs splayed and dangly bits dangling droopily and askew is attractive. IT. ISN'T. ATTRACTIVE.

When you get down to it, between the awkward bits, bizarre way things work (I mean, either you share the playground with the sewer or the playground is in between two sewers), and the sheer indignity of it all, it's a testament to just how good sex feels that we're willing to even bother.

I mean, looking at that, if you were an alien and curious, wouldn't you just scratch your head and think, whiskey tango foxtrot?

Indeed! Though perhaps it is my inner virgo that leads me to cringe at such things- I've known many folks who actually seem to actually kind of somehow seek out such things because they...like them or something. Last year at my job in Istanbul we had one teacher (a British woman in her late 40s) who just wouldn't shut up about graphic descriptions of her nightly adventures in dangly bits. Seriously. In the teachers' room. In her classes. Over lunch. All she talked about was genitalia and what it did/had done to. She would have totally loved the leopard print splayed legs.

Oh, good, I'm not the only slightly cringe-y Virgo in the room!

Living and working so closely with a big bunch of men, it's actually kind of amazing that I don't have to deal more with bits...thankfully they tend to be fully clothed at all times. Doesn't stop them from being way too proud of what they've got, because it just ain't pretty.

No, not pretty. Clothes are better.
