I took an electrician's virginity.

It's true.  I stole his innocence and I liked it.  I paid him for it too.

What the hell am I talking about?  I had the chandelier installed in the laundry room last week and was informed by the electrician (with 25 years experience) that this was the first chandelier he's installed in a laundry room.  I was SHOCKED.  Obviously his customers don't read blogs. 

I was feeling pretty cocky.  I was the first person in Nerk, Ahia to have a chandelier in their laundry room, na-na-na-boo-boo.  I was setting the home decor curve, I was the Alpha, the bar had been set.

Then, he said it.  It broke my heart, it crushed my spirit.  It pissed me off.

"Well ma'am, I just do what the customer asks for.  I don't have to like it or understand it as long as I'm paid for it."

EXCUSE ME?  What about this doesn't make sense and are you saying you don't like the idea of a dandy little vintage chandy in a laundry room?  Do you realize the deal I got on this baby?  How I covered her with a blanket to keep her warm and safe and to hide her from admirers?  Do you not see my vision? Doesn't it all make sense?
All I could say was "I saw it online."  I might as well said "I carried a watermelon."   He didn't get it.  At all.

It's ok though. 
I get it. 
YOU get it. 
Bloggers get me. 

That's what matters.


  1. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA LOL!!!!! This post is hysterical. Sorry he didn't appreciate your chandelier in the laundry room, sounds AWESOME!!!

  2. Ha! You crack me up!! Who wouldn't want a chandi in their laundry room? Any room for that matter? Heck, I think chandis should be installed in every single closet too! I wonder what he would think of my non-electrified funky crazy chandi in my laundry room?

    We get you Beth! No worries!!


  3. I forgot to ask...what color did you paint it?

  4. I left it natural. I just couldn't pull the trigger, on a color. Then I freaked out thinking if I painted it and hated it I'd have to have it taken down to repaint.

    It looks nice how it is. It does have some rusty spots, but I like to say it's got a nice patina.

    I will take some pictures soon. With the dreary weather it's been hard to get good pictures.

  5. Can't wait to see pics of the NEW chandelier! It sounds amazing. I wanted to put one in my daughters closet, because i LOVE all things dainty but i never got around to it. Yay for setting the bar in your're ahead of the curve :) That electrician sounds rude.

  6. Goofy me, I didn't check it out on Saturday. Take pictures already, woman!

  7. You could have had the grand tour!

    I was so entralled by all the humping it never crossed my mind.

    (Oh won't that get readers wondering about my life?) Probably not.
