Dr. House's Vicodin Dream

Doctor House’s Vicodin Dream

Apr 20

Hello there.
I’ve created another embroidery. This is what it would look like if Dr. House (from the TV show House) took Vicodin (as he often does) then fell asleep and dreamed that he was in Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. What can I say? Some people handle unemployment better than others.
Oh, and seriously WTF with Amber’s ghost reappearing? The writers of House really deserve a gold star for the wacky stuff they think up.

I also made a wallpaper featuring feral versions of famous furniture. In college I was required to take a class in interior design (for reasons that are not entirely clear to me), and it left me with the ability to identify the name, designer, and year of creation of many chairs. This bizarre talent really amused my friends and family, and so for months they pointed out chairs for me to identify. I would call out the answers:

Eames Lounge, Charles and Ray Eames, 1956!
Selene Chair, Vico Magistretti, 1969!
Bistro Chair, Micheal Thonet, 1859!

Most of these facts have fallen out of my head by now. Recently I was looking up to see the prices of some of these chairs that I had to memorize, and all of them are wildly expensive. Perhaps one lucky day I will stumble upon a garage sale of some foolish person who doesn’t know the true price of a 50 year old plastic chair, and then all this knowledge will have served me some practical purpose.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while, but was laughing so hard about your fierce, feral chair and the backstory that I just had to comment. I think there are lots of people in the world for whom training their 4-year-old to identify famous designers would be the chief accomplishment of their life’s work.

    Yay, I’m so happy when people actually read this site!
    I would love to chat about expensive chairs with a 4 year old kid. That would make me laugh so hard.
