There's a lot of funny stuff on there, especially if you go back and look at when she was just posting pics straight out of MLS listings (last month). In a very feeble defense of some of it, I would say that a lot of what she's poking fun at is outdated decorating choices. We've been casually house hunting over the last six months or so and she makes reference to one of my pet peeves that I see way too often: flat panel TV's mounted above fire places. It makes my skin crawl.

And a language warning for anyone that's sensitive about that. It didn't bother me, but it might be a little salty for some.

I read this last night and loved it. I'm sure those in the construction/architecture business will especially enjoy some of the atrocities.

One thing that drives me nuts is a house that has a roof that's basically a standard hip roof, but then in the front has a whole bunch of gables.  Not only does it look cluttered, but it makes for complicated roof lines that are not well designed to handle heavy rains.
