My Apartmequarium

I've said it before and I'll say it again. My friends rock.

Here's a piece of an email from a friend that's too awesome not to share. I mention that he's gay because... well... you'll understand.

"I have to say, you're the gayest straight man I know. Not that there's anything wrong with that!!! (I've always wanted to use that line on a straighty) But seriously, dude, your place is pretty gay.   ;-)

nothin' but love for you Rob!! (of course thats meant in a very straight, non-sexual manner) HA! (always wanted to use that one too!! tee-hee)"

What's Willis talkin' 'bout?

This - from Apartment Therapy:

"The Smallest, Coolest Apartment contest is a contest for all small apartments and homes in the lower 48 states under 650 square feet. We are seeking the most ingenious and beautiful 120 submissions along with all the tips and resources we need to maximize our own homes."

Yes, I've entered my place into the contest.

I titled my entry "Rob's Apartmequarium" because I'm living in the fishbowl. Here are the pics I sent in:

I'm not going to win, of course. There are professional interior designers and architects that do wondrous things with their small spaces, and they blow my place away. However, there are three reasons why I did enter the contest

#1 - I'm proud of what I've done with my space. It's definitely unique.

#2 - I love the idea of sharing ideas. Take, for example, my bed. That was an idea an old friend helped me come up with. Maybe I'll pass the idea on and help someone else too.

#3 - Awe, hell... It's fun.

At the very least, I hope to win a copy of their book: "Apartment Therapy: The Eight Step Home Cure." Not that my place needs a cure - but I'm betting that thing is filled with superb ideas. (I could just go to Powell's and buy it, but that's too easy)

So there you have it. Am I indeed the gayest straight man in PDX?


I sure do love boobies!!!!!

But I sure do love my red bed-curtains too...

Oh man.

I'm shutting up now.

Having good taste does not make you the gayest straight man...getting pedicures with high gloss polish, shaving your legs, and bragging about your Kenneth Cole shoes does!

Dude... you're so not straight. ;)

Nice apartment.

J - I don't do those things!

Then again, I do love Kenneth Cole. Not the man... not even his shoes. I love his ads. They're usually black and white with a phrase that has nothing to do with what he's selling.

"There are now fifty red states - thanks to the national debt." - Kenneth Cole.

The model in the ad featuring that slogan wasn't even wearing red.

Kenneth Cole kicks ass. Probably while wearing his own shoes.

HA!! Kenneth Cole ads are awesome.

Rob, I was not implying you do those things. Those are things that the gayest straight guys do, like my friend Michael (aka. Pedicure Boy).

Hope he doesn't read your blog!!
