OK, more on the kitchen

Update! Now with extra added old floor picture!

If you've been to my house, perhaps you'll understand what an incredible improvement it is to have this pretty new kitchen floor to look at over the old, peeling, burnt stuff that I used to have to face when I looked in the door of this room. Is it motivation enough to want to do dishes? Perhaps not, but I swear the whole room has a whole different air to it now. I bet it will look even better tonight when the fridge and stove get put back in there - well, okay, maybe it won't look better but the living room sure the heck will.

And the old ... (note this actually looks nicer than the old floor did - it's a fake, but very close. The real floor had a circular scorch mark in what would be the upper-right corner and wasn't shiny, ever, no matter how much you scrubbed).

Well, I never did see the old kitchen floor, so I don't have much to compare it to... but yeah, brightening up a room and making it more pleasant to be in can make a surprisingly big difference as far as motivation to get chores done in it.

I have remedied this problem for you ...

Ooooh, yeah, the new floor looks like it will definitely make the room much more pleasant to be in. That rusty-streaked color of the old floor, while I'm sure it's deliberate, looks like nothing so much as ground-in, smeared food waste. Icky. :P

you just brought back some unappetizing memories there
Um, yeah. The old floor ... well, we used to lock the dogs in the kitchen all day long, and ... um, well ... uh .... linoleum, I discovered, is absorbent and retains stains. I like to imagine that everything all kind of disappeared together into the swirliness of the floor - tea, spaghetti sauce, uh ... whatever ... but I always knew which were mine and which were theirs. Srubbing, bleach, whatever.

OK, focus on now: Go Tile Floor!

Your icon is verrry Princess Mononoke. But you know that. Hey, we've got a Studio Ghibli boxed set (or did, it's been lent out) and they've got a lot of movies in there I still haven't seen. We should watch some of them!

Re: you just brought back some unappetizing memories there
Heh, actually the picture is a photo of my halloween costume, which is not based on Princess Mononoke but rather Spirited Away... but you're far from the first person to make that confusion, and I can definitely see the similarity. :)

Yes! I'd definitely be into watching some Miyazaki movies with you -- I've loved all of the ones that I've seen, but I still haven't seen all of them.
