There’s no such thing as “too old to build a fort in your living room”.

12 Jan

Brrrrr! I don’t know about the rest of you, but here in Spokane it’s cold and, yet again, snowy. One of my favorite things to do when the weather’s like this, juvenile as it might sound, is to curl up in a blanket fort with a hot drink, a movie, and, if I have one on hand, a cute boy (as I’m usually out of cute boys, the dog is also an acceptable cuddle partner).

I have an awesome set of jersey-knit cowboy sheets that I like to use for my forays into living room-architecture.

These could be getting put to better use.

And check out these awesome samplings from Fuck Yeah! Forts


The harem girls are just out of frame
Holy shit, I want a circus in my living room.

Okay, so not actually a blanket fort, but still.


Someday, my books will be like this.

This one’s a traveling, fully-operational restaurant in Berlin, manned (?) by drag queens.


Best. Tree house. Ever.

And while this one isn’t particularly pretty, it does score points for the sign.


Sometimes it just needs to be said.

Hope that gives everyone some ideas for repelling the dreaded seasonal affective disorder. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some blueprints to draw up.



UPDATE: My neighbors are currently building a snow fort, complete with fire pit, in our backyard/parking area. Words cannot convey my excitement.

    At least you have your hound to keep you company in said fort. Mine would be totally solo-occupied! Unless Plato can be counted a companion, which I fear he cannot, having been dead for so long. I would love it if some of your inspired energy would rub off on me though, inside the fort or otherwise. Thanks for the evening-brightening post!
