As you know, the Home and Garden Show is coming to the David L. Lawrence Convention Center of Randomly Collapsing Beams this March.

Remember last year when they designed a room for Lukey that surprisingly wasn’t decorated with a beer-stocked fridge, Guitar Hero, randomly strewn copies of Battling Snow for Dummies and Chicken Soup for the Mayor’s Soul, or a life-sized cardboard cutout of Tiger Woods … nekkid?

Well I guess that “rooms for celebrities (cough)” idea was a hit because this year, they’re doing it again, only they’re doing it for REAL celebrities.

Celebrities like my imaginary self-united husband and future best friend David Conrad.

In addition … ASID members were planning spaces for local actor David Conrad and industrialist Henry Clay Frick.

Nancy Drew and Jeanette Waksmunski of Drew Designs, co-chairs of the room project, are working with Mr. Conrad, best known for his role in the TV show “Ghost Whisperer.” His interest in the city’s steelmaking history will be evident in the decor, Ms. Waksmunski said.

First, NANCY DREW?!!? Awesome.

Second, WTF? Does that mean that his room will be decorated with more of a blast furnace feel and not so much of a wall-to-wall shrine to PittGirl feel?


Also, I’ve never attended a Home and Garden show in the Burgh, but holy crap, I will risk the randomly collapsing beams to view this room … and kiss it.

    That picture of David Conrad is begging me to lick my computer screen…

    I was never a David Conrad fan until this post. Nice pic. The home show is great if you have one of two things… cold hard cash to pay someone to be handy for you, OR the ability to be handy. I have neither, so I won’t be there. I’m also not a fan of randomly collapsing beams.

    Can one self-unite with someone who is already unknowingly self-united with someone else?

    I used to work for a tile distributor in the North Hills and every time Nancy Drew would call for a sample or place an order, I would do a little giggle. I am so mature like that.
