In addition, Kia set up the chess board wrong. The first square on the right-hand side is supposed to be white and Kia’s was black. “White on the right.” I couldn’t tell based on her odd pieces whether she set up “queen on her color” or not but the way the board was oriented the players would have to sit at the long ends of the table top.
And no, she didn’t fix the backgammon board or from what I could see provide stones or dice. So the game board top was basically useless, which made me laugh all the harder when Kia started in on “form following function” during the pre-reveal chat.
And those blinds were a stupid idea from the start. Glue cloth to paper then paper to metal, and do 250 of them in two days, not to mention ruining your own reversible effect by writing on the blinds in indelible marker instead of, say, bits of tape.
I liked the restraint in Frank’s room, although he just couldn’t stop himself from adding those goofy painted dot things that he has to include in every room he does. I liked the coffee bar and am pleased that he didn’t paint vines all over it. I did worry about the refrigerator, though. I couldn’t see if there was enough room for heat to dissipate off the motor without creating a fire hazard. Speaking of flames, did anyone else think the husband from that room was gay as the proverbial goose?
Was the Hollywood show new this week? I don’t remember seeing it before. If I’d have walked into a room with that red stencil work all over it I’d have been looking for a roller in about twenty seconds. Way too busy. I can’t imagine what the 'serpentine" thing Doug was planning for the ceiling was going to be.
