Home Looking


Greeting my fabulous friends and welcome back to ATBAL.  First of all, thank you SO much (more than I can say) for the wonderful comments on my poem.  You showed me such kindness and sweetness and I felt so accepted and appreciated.  Many dozen hugs for all of you and furry cat kisses too :)

For today's post, it is a trip inside my swinging bachelor pad, a brief glimpse of my comfy, nerdy lair.  Starting above we have my Lord of the Rings bookends with Gandalf in Bag End a knock, knock, knocking on Bilbo's door.

Saludo a mis amigos fabulosos y Bienvenidos de nuevo a ATBAL. En primer lugar, te agradezco mucho (más de lo que puedo decir) por los maravillosos comentarios sobre mi poema. Usted me mostró tanta amabilidad y dulzura y me sentí tan aceptados y apreciados. Docena muchos abrazos para todos ustedes y peludo besos demasiado :)

Para el post de hoy, es un viaje dentro de mi hace pivotar soltero, un breve resumen de mi guarida cómoda, nerd. Empezando por encima tiene mi señor de los delimitadores de anillos con Gandalf en Bolsón cerrado un toc, toc, tocando a la puerta de Bilbo.



This was once a roof tile painted by a very talented artists.  It was a gift a few Christmases past and I quite like it.

Esto era una vez una teja pintada por un muy talentosos artistas. Fue un regalo a pocas Navidades pasadas y me gusta mucho.


My record player, in all its glory.

Mi tocadiscos, en todo su esplendor.


My bright and fun shower curtain, which I chose to help me wake up in the morning.

Mi cortina de ducha brillante y divertido, que elegí para ayudarme a despertar en la mañana.


The lacy, white curtains in my bedroom.  I know, it's a little macho and makes me look like such a tough guy, but who can resist lace :)

Las cortinas de encaje, blancas en mi dormitorio. Lo sé, es un pequeño macho y me hace parecer un tipo duro, pero ¿quién puede resistir encaje :)


My tiny but perfect kitchen.

Mi cocina pequeña pero perfecta.


This fancy lamp was my mother's.

Esta lámpara de lujo era de mi madre.


And this was hers as well.  None of us ever had any idea what it was.  Well other than totally cool of course :)

Y esto era así de ella. Ninguno de nosotros alguna vez tenía alguna idea de lo que era. Otro que bien bueno por supuesto :)


The last item from Mom was this, a very antique lightning rod.  How and why she ended up with this (once atop her grandparents' home decades ago) I have no idea.  Never had it on my house, but if there is ever a storm inside I am safe :)

El último elemento de mamá era éste, un pararrayos muy antiguo. ¿Cómo y por qué terminó con esto (una vez en la cima de casa hace décadas sus abuelos) no tengo ni idea. Nunca tuve en mi casa, pero si hay una tormenta dentro de lo estoy seguro :)


An etched metal plate from Wendel August Forge, which is located near where my parent grew up in Pennsylvania.  This depicts the light house in Erie.

Una placa de metal grabada de Fragua de agosto Wendel, que se encuentra cerca de donde mi padre creció en Pennsylvania. Esto representa la casa luz en Erie.


Yes, its Gandalf again.  My nerd hut display case is in constant state of creation and change.

Sí, otra vez su Gandalf. Mi vitrina nerd choza está en constante estado de creación y cambio.


The Dragon Heart.  With such a lovely glow.

El corazón de dragón. Con un brillo tan hermoso.


And pretty miss California closes out the show with those bright eyes.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your December has started off full of joy and wonder and love and fun.  Those are the things this month best represents so I hope you experience all of it.  You guys are the best!

Y linda señorita California cierra el espectáculo con los ojos brillantes.

Gracias por visitarnos. Espero tu diciembre ha iniciado de lleno de alegría y me pregunto y amor y diversión. Esas son las cosas este mes mejor representa así que espero que experimenta todo. Ustedes son los mejores!

Thank you so much, Sweet Amy. I really enjoy my records in all their scratchy glory. And, as wonderful as it is to have impressed you with my mastery of languages, I must be honest and say I am using a translator program on these. The only Spanish I know is ocho tigres en el bano.

Love the lightning rod! the second weird thing of your mothers that no one has a clue what it is is pretty cool too. Between the pink shower curtain and your bedroom curtains I don't think you have to worry about too many people kicking your ass... you are coming off as so freaking macho.

Your house looks like a museum! I would never see another house like this! You got me really curious about that gadget/product/thingy that you mum owned. I really cannot make out what it is.

Mum was a bit off and even she was not quite sure. It is odd, original and colorful so it reminds me so much of her :)

My house is such a mix of pieces from mom and I (and a few stray ladies that popped in and out) that I will not live long enough to blog it all :) Every time I enter a room I think "oh yes, that too." So sweet of you to check out this post, dear :)
