I mentioned recently that we put up lovely new wide-slatted white blinds in our living room a few months ago. I still love them, and they're still awesome.
Here is a highly-accurate artist's rendering of what they look like:
We have very wavy curtains. Apparently.
There's also a wall directly behind the section of couch pointing out towards us. Which means that the cord to raise or lower the blinds, which is on the right side of the blinds, is sort of hard to access.
Location of cord!
Usually it's not a big deal, since the blinds can stay where they are and we just open/close the slats, and that cord is on the accessible side. However, the other day I wanted to raise the blinds so I could open the window. Since I am a lady, I went to do so in a reasonable, dignified way: by standing on the couch like a six year old.
These pants TOTALLY make my butt look fat.
I was actually on the phone with my parents while this happened, so they were treated to a colorful play-by-play of my ...feelings.
Me: "...and on Sunday I'm going to see my friend's new baby who -- FUUUUUUUUUUCCCKKK!!!!!!"
Me: "OWWWW. Oww! My blinds just fell...? On my HEAD!? Ow! Owwwwww."
Me: "OW. OW. OW. This is NOT my favorite thing that has happened today!"
