F*ck Shui


To everyone who sent me an email asking if I'm okay, I am alive. It's just that I've been busy. I blame do-it-yourself design shows and slutty shorts.

I manage my household finances by wearing slutty shorts and high heels. It's not classy but, it's economical. Rather than remitting payments in a timely fashion, I prefer to greet the utility trucks while wearing slutty shorts. Usually, I find that the utility company employees have no plans to interrupt my service. Rather, they are simply making a routine customer service visit to stare at my camel toe.

I have been particularly successful with my cable provider. I have no less than 20 home design channels. I sat in front of the television for three days learning how to transform my patio into an outdoor oasis for under $0.15 using materials from my trash. I was inspired.

I am too lazy to hang curtains in my bedroom. Sometimes, I would like a little privacy. Because I am practically a genius, I went to Lowe's paint department and had the paint guy match the color of my skin perfectly. Now, I can walk around naked in my bedroom without worrying about my neighbor who has started parking outside my bedroom window. I'm thinking about painting polka dots all over the room in the same shade as my nipples.

My freshly painted walls seemed bare. I purchased a large mirror in a green wooden frame and went home, ready to make decorating magic. Hanging a mirror is not as easy as it looks on TV. On design shows, mirrors are always hung tastefully over a piece of furniture far, far from the bed. No one ever hangs a mirror on the wall next to the bed. I noted how a mirror next to the bed changed the theme of my bedroom from Tranquil Retreat to Amateur Porn Paradise. I was not satisfied.

Defeated, I sat on the couch and watched several more hours of do-it-yourself decor, hoping to see a show for people who like to watch themselves in bed. I learned how to apply an "antique" finish, which would make the mirror an interesting focal point but, still in poor taste. Covering the frame with fabric would be a simple and fun Saturday project but, would not class my bedroom up in the slightest.

Then, as if possessed by shabby chic-ness, I salvaged an old chair with a new coat of paint and recovered the seat with a scrap of leftover fabric in a kicky color. I put casters on the chair and wheeled it into my bedroom. I rested the mirror on the chair and rolled it about the room to find all the best angles.

I had conquered my design challenge. It seems that a mirror next to the bed is slutty but, placing the mirror on a "vintage" rolling chair, is eclectic.

ohhh... so that's the mirror's story... how you've managed without one for so long is beyond me.
if the dot-painting doesn't pan out and you decide to go for curtains after all, here's how an ex managed it: thumbtacks + bed sheets. not your next ty pennington, i'm afraid. it does recreate a certain amateur porn brothel look you were talking about, though.

cj,

I think I'll stick to whimsical nipple dots.

I wonder if the paint guy would give you a discount if you told him you wanted to buy paint to match...then whipped out a breast...or both?

See, now that I'm home all alone, I'm thinking of making a Cookie Monster room, just cover it with thick blue shag wall to wall and put to big googly eyes on the wall. That would kick all kinds of ass.

Yay! You haven't given up and orphaned your blog!

Whn I first bought my house, there was a double-wide set of sliding mirror doors in the master bedroom. I wanted to keep them, Fenchurch advised that "Those WILL be the first things to go."

Ah well.

Flesh colored paint is genius. I should go get some paint to match my pasty white skin. Instead, my bedroom is painted apartment white.

I love decorating shows but this love has lead to purple walls, blue walls, green walls, brown walls and red walls co-existing in my 1500 square foot house. Be careful. It all starts with a mirror.

I am still giggling about nipple-coloured paint dots.

And welcome back!

 
At 4:16 PM, Blogger tim said...

While I do think the whimsical nipple dots on your walls are a superb idea, to camouflage most effectively in such an environment you should also provide nipples all over your body. That way you neighbour won't see a moving patch of (mostly) nippleless Mist1. He (she?) will instead be presented with a moving collage of nipples with no clear borders, giving the illusion of movement in many directions, or none, similar to a herd of zebras.

Doing starjumps at the same time would make it even more confusing.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger Melanie said...

I love the nipple idea. but would be wary of strange dreams that boobs were attacking you while you slept.

just a thought.

 
At 4:53 PM, Blogger heather said...

maybe nipple colored suction cups. (for the whole 3d effect) superglued to the outside of your window. and attached to your wall using straight pins. (smaller holes, less damage)

the mirror on the vintage chair on casters is genius. it allows you to change the feel of the room instantly and without further damage to your walls.

damage to walls is a bad thing. i grew up on military bases and remember vividly the arguments my parents would get into over a simple nail hole in the wall. to say nothing of the fist sized ones. ;-)

I do not have curtains or blinds in my downstairs. Mostly to piss my mother in law off as she comments on this lack of window treatments EVERY time she comes over.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, Mist! You are the coolest!!! What an ingenious idea to paint your windows the same shade of your skin! I am thoroughly impressed!

I think you could show those TV people on those home design shows a thing or two about creative designing! Maybe you ought to have your own show! ;)

my mirror is on the opposite side of the room from the bed. it creates an interesting view for kneeling-positions.

I didn't want to mention the discount I got for the purple paint he matched to a bruise on my a$$.

mutt,

Slutty chic is my thing.

nolff,

Please refer to it as holiday spirit so as not to offend anyone.

snog,

It's hard to read the word nipple without seeing one in your head, isn't it?

jonas,

Thanks. I'm afraid I'm rusty.

rice,

I'm sure that it adds value. Who doesn't like nipples?

hello,

Gawd, I love hotels.

arthur,

Why would you ever get rid of mirrors in the bedroom?

k,

I hope the guy at Lowe's takes it seriously.

le,

I've Mist me too.

kirsten,

What's the difference between pasty white and apartment white?

liz,

So, purple was a bad idea?

You can help me paint.

tim,

Damn. Now I need a tattoo appointment too.

melanie,

I have that dream too.

heather,

Did you just mention straight pins and nipples together? Freaky. Cool.

adw,

Send your mother in law over to my place.

debbie,

It's a great idea, isn't it?

gran,

I'm on my back. I think I need mirrors on the ceiling.

I need a damn show!

paula,

Martha and I have both done time.

You are one classy broad.

sornie,

My point exactly.

At 8:01 AM, Blogger Tiggerlane said...

It's only TRULY slutty if you hang the mirror directly over your bed, on the ceiling.

But then, it might interfere with all the hooks and chains you have hanging there already.

 
At 8:17 AM, Blogger mindy said...

I don't think the mirror over the bed is slutty. I think it says "I'm unique, I'm interesting, and I look good naked." Nothing wrong with that!

I had to rush home for lunch, so I could finish reading your post! I must say your back in the saddle with great form as usual.

Speaking of saddles, how about a mechanical bull by the window or even by the bed? You could really put on a show with that!

 
At 10:30 AM, Blogger Captain Smack said...

Once the nipple polka dots are up, you should take a picture of yourself in your room and post it here. You could make a little game out of it, like "Where's Waldo?".

By the way, I tried that slutty shorts/high heels thing, and it really works. The utility guys literally run away from the house.

That's quite a welcome back you got from Anonymous. He found me too once, but I deleted it. I'm waiting for the Cliff Notes version.

"...they are simply making a routine customer service visit to stare at my camel toe."

Slutty shorts will do that to any utility service guy. Although, when I tried it, I don't think the camel balls got the same effect.

michael,

No food play. Too messy.

silver,

It's amazing what a little paint and a few restraints installed from the ceiling can do for a place.

alison,

F*ck shui is not for children.

The bruise was an amazing color. It ranged from eggplant to pomegranate.

nick,

I do what I can. The Lowe's guy smiled too.

archie,

I have big plans for the ceiling.

lizza,

I am way too classy for just one mirror on the ceiling, don't you think?

fab,

I have always wanted to be on the silver screen.

uncivil,

Your use of exclamation points makes me feel good!!!!!

I want a romper room. That sounds much better than a mud room, which is still pretty damn fun.

av,

I started with the man in the mirror. You know, sometimes, you just have to take a look at yourself an make a change.

Can you get me a discount?

puss,

I am making a clever curtain to cover my unmentionables.

tigger,

I'm afraid that I'll hit my head on the mirror when I'm in the swing.

mindy,

I thought the lack of curtains already said all that.

never,

I'm glad that I'm on my back too.

Don't be jealous. It causes wrinkles.

Sometimes, I amaze myself.

Try the shorts that let your cheeks poke out just a bit. I find that they have the most impact.

now, now. We must avoid kicky adjectives!

anyway, glad to read your hilarious and sexy writing once again. Not many have your gift, though I wish many did.

I wish I was a hot chick with a camel toe that just won't quit--or at least be a semi cute girl who just won't quit using her camel toe power to mesmerize the varoius bill collector/sausages of the world.

Too bad I'm hairy and ugly; sexual reassignment would only make things worse. A guy with personality can get past being hairy and ugly; he just needs to be able to laugh with rejection and not be intimidated by really hot chicks. Besides, I've found that if I'm rejected like at a bar or club, but it seems to be with a smile, all I have to say is "that's cool I was expecting you to put out your cigarette on me" or something like that and laugh as I sit down with them anyway. It's an odd charisma that I tell everyone they too can have, but few other ugly/hairys can pull it off. They don't smile, laugh or listen enough. Oh well. I don't need them bustin up my fucks anyway.

I bet your rejection would be something to laugh at and still turn red and almost collapse from.

Think I'll stick to blogging and flogging.

I am using your paint idea for every room in my new place. Fantastic. Being naked has never been so crowded. It is going to be like a little nudist colony in my living room.

I will be careful not to rub up against the walls as that would probably excite them, cutting any mirrors that may be hanging. (get it... hehe... nipples... cut glass... tehehe)

I am going back to my hole. sorry to disturb...

 
At 11:08 AM, Blogger tallyho_2022 said...

You know, you could do a nice chair rail/border around your room. Get the nipple paint and take off your shirt. Then paint your boobs and press them to the wall. Move a couple steps to the right and repeat. Done deal.

 
At 12:19 PM, Blogger turnerBroadcasting said...

When it comes to females I am beginning to understand that the more that I know .. the less that I know.

I have decided that, as a male, it is my duty to move the painting wherever she wants it. And stand there until she is happy. And then move furniture. If she wants.

And then paint. If the pattern looks like nipples, I get to smile while I work.

I have also learned, as a male, to keep my copy of Blacklight Beauty under lock and key

I'm back from my vacation, and I'll visit more regularly again.

Forgot to mention - so glad you're back.

I'M TYPING IN ALL CAPS. THAT MEANS SERIOUS BUSINESS.

yay you're back. i'm totally doing that in my bedroom, with the paint. it would keep the construction guys who are building the skyscraper across the street from peering in at me in a couple of weeks when they work their way up to my floor. i mean, i have blinds, but they're ugly, so i never put them down.

the mirror goes on the ceiling, silly. what kind of amateur porncess are you?

You are by far, and always will be the best.... even if you don't post all the time.

I wish I had something more to say, but as always - nothing. I think I was going to say something about the painting dots all over your walls to match nipples, but the thought escaped me.... or something.

Gosh, I don't think I've EVER had a pair of slutty shorts. Of course, my ASS is very thankful for this, as is most of my fellow Americans, to be sure.

I took your advice, drank a bottle of wine and passed out on the sofa. In a dream, it came to me. I will put the giant red palm mirror above my bed. It is not funky, but I am.

puppy,

My place is pretty sexy. If you think kitty litter on the floor is sexy.

c,

I like my new bedroom so much that I've invited a few people over to see it.

anon,

I don't pay for that service. However, if you would like to buy me a few cocktails first, we could probably arrange something.

c & f,

I always get those confused. Also, electric.

jali,

There is no 12 step program.

curiosity,

My mind is a very complex place.

nolff,

You don't have to shout.

elizabeth,

I know how to mount a lot of things but, a mirror on a ceiling is not one of them.

ryan,

I'm not very good at painting.

melody,

My a$$ would be lost without my whorish shorts.

wg,

Wine and the sofa are never wrong.

Slutty shorts and daisy dukes has to be the way forward! Am so with you on that one although have to admit to being a complete skanker at times and wearing my dead Grandad's old robe with wool socks! Think I need a hobby too!

 
At 11:16 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

anon,

I can't decide which slutty shorts to wear. What's your preference? Stripes or solids?

rach,

I wear my dead Grandpa's pajama pants. They are torn up the leg. I tear them a little bit more every time I wear them.

 
At 6:05 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I like solids but only you know which shorts are the sluttiest. Yeah, the tightest sluttiest ones are the best shorts. They're coming off anyway. Now, what about panties? None? boy shorts? g? i'm getting excited!

anon,

You're so easy to please. I admire that trait.

 
At 9:04 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Why thank you. Like I said, it sometimes takes four hours so you may not think I'm so easy to please when we're in bed in a Maui hotel my dear.

 
At 9:43 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

anon,

I have a short attention span. Nothing keeps me occupied for four hours. Mind if I multi-task?

If you let me clean your 'clock' you may do as you wish darlin. Is it really dirty down South? I want to be prepared.

ROFL--I do the slutty shorts thing--it works so well....

anon,

You clean clocks too? Do you detail cars?

Nothing can prepare you for the Dirty South.

becky,

Ah, the power of shorts.

 
At 9:27 AM, Blogger eric1313 said...

You are so right--I'm free!

Ahhh, so basically, it's the feeling of freedom that drives me to drink and smoke lefthanded marlboros...

 
At 11:20 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

eric,

Being free is so much better than being cheap.

 
At 6:24 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

No i do not detail cars or do any of your honey do's. i was in the "Dirty South" twice. Let's just say it was 'interesting'. I think I will just try to deal with with the West Coast and Hawaii, thank you. So when and where do we do our 'rendezvous' mon petit doux? Let's come together somewhere.

 
At 10:24 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

anon,

Hmmm. My car really could use it.

 
At 11:52 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

OK OK! I'll detail the dang car but i use a different tool for that.

 
At 10:41 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

anon,

I like power tools. I also like tool belts.

Is a little recreational cunnilingus supposed to be this complicated?

 
At 6:47 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

anon,

I prefer hard men to complicated men.
