Fifteen unique and creative staircases for your viewing pleasure.Fifteen unique and creative staircases for your viewing pleasure.

After seeing some of these photos (particularly the slide plus stairs combination) I am suddenly realizing that my current set of stairs is in desperate need of a makeover. I just need to figure out where I can fit the slide.

Twelve very creative home wallpapers for your viewing pleasure.Twelve very creative home wallpapers for your viewing pleasure.

If pixelated wallpaper isn't your thing there are ton of other interesting designs listed over on the other side of the click. The color palette/wallpaper idea sounds like a fun weekend project as Home Depot sure doesn't seem to mind the taking of those free swatch colors (you may need multiple trips to get away with it though).

Daily Grind: Motivated

Name: Vin (aka springy)
How Vin feels today: Motivated @ 8:55:44 AM
What Vin really wants today: To welcome everyone back into the world of daily grind posting after taking an entire month and a half off. What can I say, it's been a crazy past 45-50 days or so.

Music Stuck in Head: New York City Traffic
Recently I've taken a break from listening to music on my morning commute into the city. These days I'm all about playing Scramble (free app) on the good old iPhone. Passes the time quite nicely.

Stuff to do today:

  • Attempt to post new photo to photoblog at some point today
  • Continue achievement hunting through Ghostbusters: The Video Game for Xbox 360
  • Some of these achievements are just ridiculous
  • Mini review of game: mildly enjoyable, lots of wasted potential, flat voice acting (looking at you Bill Murray)
  • Find time to watch Termination: Salvation
  • Mini review of movie: wasn't all that bad, quite predictable but not overly terrible

Twelve unique and creative sofas for your viewing pleasure.Twelve unique and creative sofas for your viewing pleasure.

No house is truly complete unless you own a LEGO sofa. Although for all intensive purposes that couch can't be very comfortable to actually sit in - probably quite functional though. Painful, but functional.

Nothing inspires patriotism in me more than looking at a bookshelf shaped just like the United States. I'm guessing you probably can't fit a lot of books in Rhode Island or Delaware.
