Back when we had cable, we watched plenty of This Old House reruns on the DIY Network and PBS. The guys knew what they were doing. They broke it down in an understandable way. Then there was always the beautiful old house eye candy. I even subscribed to the magazine for a while when the Brownies were selling those discounted magazine coupons. We followed Tom's instructions for a quick patch to our laminate counter tops shortly after moving into the Carolina House. In short, we adore This Old House and have long dreamed of meeting the guys in real life and featuring a project of our own.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly announce that we are one step closer to our goal! In newsstands now, the Palindromes asked This Old House and received an answer!
Unbeknownst to me, Mr. Palindrome had sent in a picture of some red bugs we found on our front walk last spring. He was just curious and thought they might know. When an editor wrote back saying they wanted to run it in the Q&A section we almost peed ourselves with excitement. We zipped off a print ready picture of the little buggers and waited patiently for this month's edition. Roger actually answered the question and it was fun to see Mr. Palindrome's pseudonym in print. Thanks to some good, old fashioned stink bugs for paving our way to This Old House!
I’m a Defense Consultant with a tendency towards pulling office pranks, taking lunch breaks, and drinking Wawa shakes. I’m also an English major with a serious obsession with alliteration and rhymes. While I’m not keeping America safe, I’m priming, sanding and painting. Or increasing our fresh veg intake. Or pontificating on my newly minted status as a wife. All the while, I’m getting myself into Lucille Ball-esque scrapes and making Jim Carey-esque faces. Post-wedding, I’m bringing blogging home to explore renovations, recipes, and reflections.
