    Elbow Creek: The New Pimp Daddy
    Well, I went home last night and, against my objections, the wifey had painted our basement, with the help of a supposed painting pro.

    It's red.

    Pimp Daddy Red.

    All you need is a leopardskin throw, and some gold flake on the wall, and it's a dang house - err, basement - of ill repute.

    We are talking, eyeball staining, Heinz Ketchup, alien popping out of stomach red.

    I don't think I can take 10 years of this prostitute red where I work in the evenings.

    I'm not real happy this morning, though it is kind of nice to get back to my office and it's off-white walls for a few hours, to give my eyeballs a rest.

    Maybe I'll get a fur coat and one of those nifty bowler hats for Christmas this year.

    When asked what I thought, the nicest thing I could come up with was, "Uh.... it's.....different."

    "Prostitute red" probably would have sent me to the doghouse, which is flea bitten white.

    And how much time does wifey-poo spend down in the basement brothel?

    I feel your pain. My office is in our house after I took over the formal dining room and threw up some double doors. My wife is free to decorate the rest of the house, and she's pretty good, but the CMC world headquarters are off-limits.

    I can imagine the red brothel look and it's not a pretty site in my mind LOL

    webworker- it's an open basement, really, really long, so the rest of the family uses one end.

    greg- you know, that's an idea, maybe I need to move the office into a different room. Hmmm. Not sure where, but that's a thought! In the meantime, maybe I can find an affiliate program that sells pimp coats.

    LOL here's one http://www.frankelcostume.com/pages/...es/pimp_suits/

    Too bad they don't have an affiliate program. Maybe you can make your point by renting a pimp suit and going home. Tell your wife you just wanted your attire to match the new paint job.

    ROFL, that's perfect. I love the sparkling bling on his neck and fingers, too. I wonder if PimpBling.com is taken.....

    I think I'm going to go take a picture of my basement and post it somewhere. Surely I can make some money off of it.... maybe a 'Basements Gone Bad' article, with some recommendations for making the best of a bad idea, or 'How Not To Paint', and push some amazon books on proper color combinations and design techniques. The article is writing itself in my head right now - in lurid lascivious red, no less!

    Great idea, turn it into a profit center. Don't forget about "Pimp my Basement".

    "Pimp My Basement" almost sounds like one of Dynamoo's Faux Sites...

    "Yes, you too can start your own business at home, in a proven industry! Here at Pimp My Basement we give you practical advice on proper pimp attire, color coordination, and leopardskin accoutrements to get you up and pimping as quickly as possible: remember, time REALLY IS money, in this business. Don't forget to check out our sale page, where we've recently listed dozens of fashionable pimp daddy hats and fur coats."


    Ah, I'm feeling better now. Took four hours, but maybe I can get some real work done now.

    Darn, PimpMyBasement.com is already taken.

    Be careful, Elbow. Years ago I built a big room above our garage for my wife to share, sewing room on one end, my home office on the other. Soon I had to move out as my wife just had too much stuff in there. Then I turned our walkout basement family room in to my office, counter tops along two walls, cupboards, recessed area for monitor, etc. Wife thought that would be better as a place where kids could do homework with no TV. Then my home office became the dining room with a portable wireless laptop and portable file cabinet. Sometimes it is the back patio of the house, but soon I was eyeing the bathroom as it had a lock on the door.

    I feel for ya buddy!

    Shoot, that might have been a fun - but potentially marriage ending - experiment. Maybe it being taken already is a good thing!!! Hehe...

    Hehe, I'll try and do that discretely, dfl. At least it is a darker red now, not quite as pimpy today ( I keep telling myself that, hehe ) . On the downside, they had some leftover paint and painted our upstairs front entrance room red while I was gone yesterday. Not that bad there, though, I can take it in small doses...
