For a Laugh

I get a little giddy when I see a Pottery Barn catalog in my mailbox.  Sometimes, I find myself looking at their pictures, thinking to myself, "I wish I was an architect so I could have a cool drawings/plans lying around my home office with the tall table."

This picture had me wanting an abacus, even though I have no idea how to use one.  What's wrong with me?

Before I start doing some kind of self examination on why a catalog could make me want a whole different life just so I could have cool stuff, I'll go to
Catalog Living.  This girl puts funny captions under these out-of-touch-with-reality homes.  They are hilarious.  

Here are some good ones:

Here's the caption: 
I’ve only set out personalized towels for Margaret and Patrick, but I see three people arriving on horseback…if they’re bringing a friend I wish they had told me ahead of time.  The embroiderer is fast but not that fast.

Gary! If these oars even come close to knocking over a single one of my starfish, I’ll shove one inside you. And if you leave your tote bag by the chair one more time…

Elaine was not amused by Gary’s passive-aggressive response to her request to “garnish the cocktails.”


  1. That girl has way too much time on her hands but I guess you must, too. Thanks for the laughs!

  2. Those are too funny!
