the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Welcome to Armstrong Inn, part two

Today I’d like to give you guys a peek at the unfurnished guest room and have a little fun while doing so. (FUN. WE NEED SOME FUN AROUND HERE. AND SOME HOT DOGS. Marlo! I’ve got an assignment for you!) You left so many helpful comments about what makes a home away from home for you: a functional alarm clock, power strips, an assortment of pillows, a stripper pole.

I like the idea of a little note next to the bed that gives a guest the password to the wireless connection and a gift certificate for free pole dancing lessons. You’d be like, gosh! They thought of EVERYTHING! And then you’d turn around and notice the hamster waiting for you in a cage on the dresser. His name is Stanley and you have to take him home with you.

Thank you again for those suggestions. We’re definitely incorporating many of them into the final room, but we’ll get to that later. First, let’s show you the canvas we’re working with. Many thanks to Jon for his technical and video skills and to Tyrant for being such a good sport.
