Re: How to fit in

How about a real cow's head, fresh from the abattoir?
If they knock on your door to complain, have a blood-soaked apron and large knife close at hand.

Re: How to fit in

It puts me in mind of my rather frosty relationship with my mother-in-law. At first I tried hard to have her like me/accept me but it slowly dawned on me that this would never happen because the things she did not like about me were the things I was unable to change (1) I was British (2) I was reasonably educated and had a (shudder) "career" and (3) I had stolen her precious son away from the mother country (France).

Before you compromise your sense of decency and taste, consider if doing so would actually have the desired effect .. ie to enable you to fit in better or whether there aren't actually other things standing in your way (and which you may not be able to change) towards fitting in?

On the other hand, if it just takes a bit of dubious doorway doilification, it's worth a shot.

Re: How to fit in

An objet d'art on your appartment door should get the message across.

No really, she's really really bad. She can't even draw a cow properly. Worse she cries every time I rip her 'art' up. She has to learn though
So YOU are the tiger mom everybody is railing about But seriously, around Easter time it's easy, I bought these huge wooden Easter eggs and put them in front of the door. Has worked for years. Try to find something that is a one-time investment you can put up again and again.

(Oh dear, I forgot to remove the Halloween stickers again)

Ehm, we still have the Christmas reef on our door, surrounded by kid art and cartoons When in Rome, you really do not have to do all like the Romans, right?

At least the Christmas tree is out of the car's trunk now, that's quite an improvement. I think that sad thing was there for about a month.

In addition, someone has taken a really bad photograph of some blackbirds sitting in a pile of primroses and selotaped it to a pink sheet of paper with hearts on it and stuck it to the entrance door.

So I need to do some of these things to be part of the gang. I need to know where to purchase dollies, plastic animals and cow paintings.
I so know how you feel.
My italian neigby keep putting all sort of crap in the entrance of the building. Plastic flowers, okay, can live with it. Those deers, no. The clown no. They even put a barbie horse too, it was really over done there. Thankfully the barbie horse has gone missing by some mysterical way...

I sincerely feel awkward each time I have new visitors
