Wash. Rinse. Repeat  

My dad bought one of those new quick disconnect/coiled hoses that are (evidently) all the rage on infomercials/QVC.

Of course, while I was helping him connect the myriad of connectors and washers (because I'm the one with gardening skillz... NOT!), he decided to test it. Of course while the nozzle was apparently aimed at me.

I, along with my new, never–been–washed Energie jeans and Obey T-shirt, are now drenched from head to toe. Being that the idea to buy this hose came from an infomercial, there's some poetic justice in there somewhere.

And... I'm sad to report that their gardner was here yesterday, and the rather yummy gardner has been replaced with a not-so-much.

So much for that fantasy!

Not a good day there for ya huh. I almost bought a pair of those, really liked them. It would have made a great scene to watch happen (hehehe).

This is starting to sound more and more like an episode of Desperate Housewives.

new fangled hosiery
That sounds unfortunate with the hose water situation. Do you have special hosin' needs with all its connectors n' such? I bet this is a very nice place from what I am able to tell.

Since I love Energie I must follow that link to the shirt. Clearly we have good taste.

Nothing super special. They never wanted to move out of the place we grew up in so they just keep remodeling and adding on.

I do love my Energie jeans (we do have good taste :-P). I'd love to pick up a pair of True Religion jeans, but at $300 I can't help but feel like I'm being ripped off.... but they look so awesome!

Obey Giant is a local L.A. street artist who's kind of made it big. You can get t-shirts with his art on it at skate shops around the city. I've kind of been a fan of his art work since his obey-giant posters started appearing around the city and painted under freeway overpasses. It's just kinda neat. :o)
