and a Surprise!
I decided my kitchen needs a mini makeover.
(oh...it needs a major makeover but I can only afford a mini one)
This involves me putting away my vintage pastel colored mixing bowls
and putting out silver instead.
But...I don't have enough silver things to do this.
So over the past few months, I've been acquiring a few pieces here and there.
(they have to be inexpensive as I am so poor at the moment)
Last night I won an auction on Ebay for this silver plated pitcher.
It's a vintage pool tournament trophy from 1938 (cool).
After winning it (only $5 - thank you very much)...
I thought...hmmmm...I wonder if this seller has any more silver I'd want?
I found this.
This is a nice piece but you can see the photographer in the reflection and he's not wearing a shirt.
This made me feel dirty.
And made the object not as desirable.
I have to say I did go through all his other auctions just to see what else I might see in the reflection.
I imagined there might be a whole porn moment going on there.
Then, I noticed in the pitcher I bought, that it looks like he's not wearing pants.
Talk about subliminal messages....is this why I couldn't resist bidding on it?
How sick am I that I went through all his other auctions to see what else I might see?
I imagined....the next sugar bowl might have a naked woman entering the room....
the next, a scantily clad plumber rings the doorbell...
You get the idea.
I wonder if this guy realizes that his shirtless body is being seen all over Ebay?
