more rebi* fun...



that's what i did when i started trying to clean the tobacco stains off of the walls and woodwork in my *new* apartment. the windows were gross and disgusting, but at least do-able and are now spick-and-span.

the woodwork? well, that's a whole other story.

i started out with a citrus cleanser. once the hundreds of rags (newspaper) appeared clean after wiping, i thought i was done...then for some stoopid reason i decided to try the ammonia and water solution i'd used on the windows.

doh!

long story short:









damn you, you...



*(rebuses may sound better than rebi, but latin is latin. right?)

btw, do i need to make them more obscure? are they too freakin' obvious and boring??

Wait, was it a good outcome? I thought maybe it had peeled the paint/finish? Or are you saying that it looks good, now that you have stripped all the woodwork and are redoing it?

The first one was really easy because you used the phrase in my comments. Subconsciously or a very big hint?

I at first went in a completely different direction with the second one, until I called P for help with the sign language letter, then realized what it was before she told me.

Rebi are always obvious once you get them!

I think that I've got it...the beginning and the end...But...The Mr.Ed part is still a mystery to me! Should I go bang my head a few more times on the wall?

Okay I got Mr. Ed and the can of worms but I'm still trying to figure out the rest. No don't tell me ...I have too many kids in my house and my brain is mush. LOL Too much Spongebob Squarepants!!!

Uuurgh! I was enjoying the pictures until I got to the last one. You could have warned me, I've just had my breakfast! Oh-oh....
