    That. Is. Absolutely. Amazing.

    I assume you’ve all seen the recipe cards.

    I think that Marcy and her “Enchilada” would go down particularly well around these parts.

    I’m a sick puppy. Some of that was eyegougingly painful, and some of it made me nostalgic for my parents’ old doublewide. There is just something about dark faux wood panneling that makes me happy. Granted, I was a tiny tot when these “styles” were hip, so any feelings of security and warmth have more to do with those being the few years of my life where my parents weren’t complete ____holes. Still, I hope that the 70′s and 80′s have permanently burned out any decorating milage one could get out of orange and pea green.

    Agnetha?

    Huh. The love child of Jeannie (as in I Dream Of…, etc.) and Germaine Jackson?

    Just a guess.

    I never thought of matching my pantsuit to my upholstery, even back in the ’70s. I can think of many situations where this kind of camouflage might be useful, though.

    As a longtime expat american I wish to thank you for helping me in my long time struggle to convince inferiority complexed otherwiswe intelligent americans that being european does not automatically give one an inherent sense of good taste or higher culture.
    Now if you could help me with the struggle to convince americans that Indians and asians do not automatically have an inherent spirituality that is so sadly lacking in the “material” west or that being from a poverty stricken 3rd world country gives one a better awareness of world morality and ethics.
    I suggest that when viewing the swedish website that viewers listen to ABBA for maximum “you are there” feeling.
    We loved our orange here during the seventies. It was so “häftig”!

    I know Lileks is a tool, but any of those photos would fit beautifully into his book “Interior Desecrations.”

    Oh dear. I was a teenager when that stuff was cool and it permanently warped my sense of design. I STILL like that stuff, if not in such large quantities.

    Seventies train-wreck chic–and in English:
    “It Came From The 1971 Sears Catalog!”

    I can’t help but feel that I NEED a “genuine” fake fur sleeping bag. Or was that slumber sack? Anyway, I feel it would help me bond with my girlfriends better, especially if it was hot pink. Oh Oh, maybe sparkly too!

    Pleeeeease can I have a sparkly one?
