Chill the fuck out people! It was a tongue in cheek thread title. I started the Vagina Living Room thread, so obviously I am not above making fun of the Petersiks. I am happy to slam them for their boring filler posts (miniature fireplace, reeeeeally?) but I'm not interested in criticizing their every move. People have been pretty harsh on them here, which you're obviously entitled to, but own it, hams!

I thought John did a great job repairing the hole in the deck. He has some solid carpentry skills, for sure. Sanding and restaining will make a big difference too. Nice to see Sherry wearing something other than jeans n the pool pic!

@ My Hammy Vice: Where do you draw the line? Seriously, I am interested in knowing. You're obviously invested enough to read YHL, read here, post here, start your own thread here about how they aren't evil and state in your inaugural post on your own thread that you think they are boring but have potential. 

When do you suppose you will start to get tired of the filler posts to the extent that you don't care if they get off/stay on your internets? How many blog posts of theirs will have to be individually GOMI before they become GOMI for you? Someone else mentioned that they don't care if they don't touch the house until next Spring. That is almost a year away. What on earth would possibly keep people reading if they don't do anything for almost a year? 

Good lord, people, especially showmeyourteeth.  I think it's pretty clear that My Hammy Vice doesn't think that you actually think they're evil, it's just a figure of speech.  It's pretty immature to take it so literally.

I guess you are right. You'll excuse me while I point out that you must be on crack (in the figure of speech way, just for clarification) or just really into irony to bring up maturity on a YHL GOMI thread. 

Lol, counterpoint duly noted!

Bwahaha. I see it took no time at all for the GOMI posse to descend upon the new SOMI thread. 

I think what MHV is saying is that there is a difference between having fun snarking on the weaker points of a blog and ripping apart every little thing that a blogger says, does, decides, writes, thinks, chooses, farts etc., not to mention the attacks on their character. Yes. Attacks on their character. And if you don't recognize that that's you all are doing over on the GOMI thread, then you've got about as much self-awareness as one of YHL's ugly new door knobs.

Let's see… what was the latest? Oh yeah, RAGE because YHL don't have soft sheets. Clearly, Sherry used the term "grown-up" as a stand-in for "sophisticated." She didn't invent that usage; any idiot should have known what she meant. And yet the "omg how childish!" "omg They're 30!" Do you really wonder about the people who register on GOMI just to call us haters and then never post again? It's pathetic comments like the sheets thing. 

And now there's the RAGE because progress on the house is slow. But just a couple of weeks ago Sherry wrote a post explaining that big projects would be slow in coming because they wanted to put more time and care into this house and the decisions they make for it (don't we ALL agree that they rushed through house 2 with less than impressive results?). Even GOMI praised that approach… but just two weeks later you're bitching that the walls in the LR are still salmon. And who was it who complained that they didn't invest time and money into painting all the walls white first even though they would all be repainted? LOLZ

Let's not forget SCC criticizing them for not saving the world with their blog. SCC — who posts 24/7 in between all her charity gigs, I guess. 

I cannot even hate read that GOMI thread anymore.

YHL is meh right now. Yes, they should be doing mood boards instead of mini fireplaces. We're all in agreement there. But the weaknesses of the blog are so overstated; you seem to compete to see who can come to the worst/most outrageous conclusions about them and then you all praise each other for it. That GOMI thread has become one perpetual jerk-off. You ladies need to take a step back and stop masturbating each other. 

clapclapclap You basically articulated what I think. I think I love you! hugggg

Whole post is spot on but these pieces in particular. clap . Can't wait for parts of the gomi thread to go off on "all the SOMI thread does is talk about us".

The snark on those salmon walls is valid, but their utensil tray or what sheets they have, not for me. I think they're going to have some amazing before and afters. The hallways/bedrooms already look really impressive (yes, I know they need paint). They just need to pick up the pace a little bit while still remaining thoughtful about the choices they make.

Can you change the thread title to "John and Sherry Are Not Stupid, Lazy, Dirty, Immature, Passive Aggressive Lying Liars Who Lie"?  Because "evil" is apparently an offensive exaggeration and using it as shorthand for the above accusations is totally beyond the goddamn pale.

Sarcasm aside, are we going to have two SOMI threads now, or just this one?

My personal favorite as of late was when SCC looked up the warranty for their appliance that broke because she suspected they were lying about it.  

But like chevronh8 said, I don't want to offer up ammo for their claim that our thread is just going to discuss them.  SO.

Today's post, with the patching up of the deck… not much material to comment on there.

I wonder if they'll keep the slate in the foyer?  I like it!

Ha ha, some great responses, ham cats!! Thank you for articulating what I was unable to. I wish this were Utah so I could marry several of you at the same time! I like having the SOMI thread here so all of my YHL is in one place. Then I won't have to click around so much in my love / hate relationship with the Petersiks, because I'm lazy like that.

Differences aside, I enjoy having a new sub-forum to hang out with you losers. The Figurative Franzia is on me today!

Ill. I didn't know you could masturbate someone. 

Take it easy, Crayons. Send SCC a private message if you hate her that much. I am tired of everyone talking about her all the time. It is more boring that a miniature fireplace. The SOMI and GOMI threads are the exact same thing. Literally. We can all be ham friends. Give peace a chance. 

I am going back to work. Have a good day, ailurophiles.

Man, I really like those door knobs.  I think they're distinctive and classic, without being outrageously expensive (although, personally, I could never spend $30 a pop on door knobs; I'm still working up the nerve to spend $15 each to upgrade all of mine).

Agreed on everything else. wink

Okay, as long as its proximity to the other threads doesn't cause the universe to collapse in on itself.
