my new boss

how's that for fucking crazeballs?? allow me to refresh your memory....

remember the designtard series? remember when you saw dantard making goo goo eyes at the hot gay dude who came it to critique the madness of 3 recliners in a nursery?
so the hot gay dude is john gidding, an architect and designer and overall renaissance gay. well he contacted me several months ago and asked me if i wanted to write his blog for his new website. i accepted and we met yesterday and went over the details. first of all let me just say he is major eye candy. i nearly passed out due to the glare coming off his teeth. he is super tall like 5'15 or some shit. and tan. and...funny and nice and cool and...(gulp) talented.. he showed me some of his furniture designs which are very cool and modern and frank gehry-ish.
so..the website itself is dedicated in part to his new hgtv show airing in the spring called curb appeal the block in which he fixes up the facade of not just one house but a whole block. i watched a sneak peak yesterday and i have to say as far as hgtv shows go this one had a reality sensibility (i.e. unscripted, free form etc..) unlike some of the other cheese fest's that hgtv offers. john is warm, funny and a little nerdy on camera which always wins me over. i can't stand when people take themselves too seriously, it's such a turn off. it makes you judge their shit more harshly, no? anyhoo....there were promises of events i would attend, photograph and blog about as well as a few silly things i could post (there was talk of the penis chandy ) and coming to the set of curb appeal to perhaps blog about that. so overall i am pretty excited to actually be paid for writing! i mean i never ever ever EVER predicted that when i started MFAMB, and to be paid for something that i actually enjoy! plus to be called by the guy i was kinda razzing says something about the guy doesn't it? as i said earlier..it's CRAZEBALLS!!!!

so from my perspective as long as you write it all from your heart and use your voice and not a voice you think people want to hear and try not to bore the piss out of people you will get a job with a hot gay dude!

I hate you ~ not really, just writhing in pain from jealously. John is indeed very hot. I jump for joy when he is designing on Designed to Sell. He always knocks it out of the park. I am terribly impressed (or is that depressed?. You are a fabulous writer (I've said so all along). You write from your gut which is a scary thing to do. Your living the dream girl..living the dream.

Congrat's & celebrate this weekend xxx

First I'm happy you got a gig. And I hope it's a well paying gig.
Funny how HGTV has something good now that you met this hunk. Just sayin' ha ha.
And about that penis chandelier. I sent that image to a client over six months ago as a joke. It has been circulating amongst designers like forever, and it is so old. Can't we move onto the vagina sconce?
Love you!
xo xo
BTW You don't need to be ghosting someone's blog, your talent needs to be on HGTV. Just sayin'...

Sara@hip-e said...

Kickass! Good for you!

Rachel said...

How awesome!!! Congratulations!!! What great news to start the weekend out with.

And your sideboard looks amazing. Really really great job. One side note, though... sprayers aren't always super easy. First of all, they're messy - it's like spray paint. And the resevoir is not that big - you're constantly filling that thing up. And then you have to wrangle with the little resevoir to get it off and on, without dropping the thing and the paint going everywhere. Sprayers are okay, but they're not all that.

Congrats again on the hot gay boss news.

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

OMG!!! How amazing is that??? Congrats!!!

nkp said...

Honey, you are living the dream! So well deserved; your writing is fresh and freaky (which is pretty much the highest compliment I can give).

Now I'm going to go back to kissing your boss's picture.

Congrats!

Simply Mel said...

Holy shitake! I step away from the computer for one day, one freakin' day, and my rock star gal announces the news of the year! I'm over-the-blue moon excited for you! Obviously, the hot gay guy knows a good hot brilliant tamale when he sees/reads one! LOVE IT!

Congratulations. You absolutely deserve that job - your design writing is spot on.

And yea, holy crap that guy is hot. Any chance of turning him to play for the heteros? He would be the MVP for sure.
