I have my camera back and will not "get into trouble" after all.
Holy freaking WHEW, y'all.
Actually, it looks like there are rain spots on the lens, but they don't show up in the photos which is weird, but who cares, right?
Thanks so much! for all your good ideas and positive vibes. xoxoxox
Now that that little dilemma is all settled, I wanna bitch about my bathroom that, by all accounts, is so pretty, but is grating on me like I'm a hunka, hunka cheese.
Here's the pretty part:
So pretty, right?
I was obsessed with that tile when we ("we" meaning Jackdaddy) had the bathroom down to the rafters.
Oh, it is soooo pretty and mod and spa-like and ocean-like and all things dreamy and mermaidy.
I actually think it's called something horrid like Fairway.
I call it Mermaid though and so that's what it is.
Here's the rub ...
When I bought this tile at the wonderful tile store over here on Anderson Lane - The Tile Guy - my tile dude, the lovely John, tried really, really hard to educate me on why I really, really should not use white grout.
I could not be convinced as I am as hard-headed as they come when it comes to design.
Stupid, stupid me.
The white grout is fucked in every imaginable way.
I swear to the goddess that I have just scrubbed that floor.
Really, really deep stains that happened instantly.
This grout was white white white when it was installed.
Fourteen seconds after moving in it looked like this.
Plus our tile installer was a shithead stupid ass and so the tile is popping out all over the place all the time.
(Don't tell Jackdaddy, but I just put a glob of craft glue in the hole and stick the tile back in.)
It's so much easier than putting that official glue shit on there and neither one of them works.
I really want to rip that tile out and start over.
Starving people right down the street, I imagine, and I want to re-tile my crappy ass bathroom.
I want this:
Course, I have "nothing to do" and might as well just rip out an entire bathroom floor to replace it with new tile.
It's a tiny bathroom, but it's my only bathroom.
The thought of 3 people with one bathroom whose floor is ripped up is more than I can handle.
I might freaking freak out and do it because I can just crowbar that shit up and lay this stuff down in a jiffy.
Jiffy being relative, of course.
I dunno...I'm a psycho.
I just loooooove that subway tile look and I feel like crying or killing something every time I look at all the evil stained dirtiness of the floor now.
On a lighter note, you know what makes me soooo happy?
Seriously, if I lived alone I would so tile that whole bathroom in tattoo tiles.
SO, so, so tile that bathroom in tattoo tiles.
I'm not gonna do a damn thing about any of it, of course, but it was fun whining to ye, matey.
