So I was visiting some friends this past weekend, ones that I haven't seen in awhile, and something dawned on me. Well, it's not a new notion in the world but, a new notion to me. Being a renovator or house decorator immediately bonds you to people that are the same. It's funny, one minute you are meeting someone new, talking about the weather, not feeling a particular chemistry with them until the topic of renovations come up and how you are both in the midst of some house improvement and all of a sudden, you're best friends.
"Oh my god, I totally know! What kind of insulation did you use?...... Do you have a best friend at Home Depot?...... I suggest that you don't go anything below 70 CFM when you are buying a bathroom fan, totally worthless! ...... What is your favourite renovation show? ........ You have your own renovation show??? Wheeeeeeee.......... (titter, titter, titter)"
It's amazing really. A few weeks ago, Cool J and I had brunch with some newly bonded home improvement faggos and we literally talked renovations for 4 hours. Non Stop. And of course the time went by so fast!
I guess when you are passionate about something, you can talk about it for hours and hours and hours. But I find renovation passions to be particularly fascinating. I mean, I don't think that plumbing or dry-walling or tiling is very exciting. Or lugging old toilets to the backyard. What is exciting is showing off the finished project to other renovators. I guess its kind of like getting approval. Is that what it's like being a parent? Dress the kids up, talk about the trophies they won in school and watch for the approval ratings to go sky high!
What do you feel passionate about? What do you like to talk about for hours and hours and hours?
