Have another round? No, I mean drinks!

Blog Guy, I need some of your great advice on home entertaining.

Is it something that can be solved by a fancy Williams-Sonoma gadget?

Not this time. I've invited some of those anti-Gaddafi soldiers over for a home- cooked dinner, and I'm wondering if there's anything special I should know. We'll start with pre-dinner drinks in the living room.

That sounds lovely. Make sure they have a clear line of fire.

Excuse me? Clear line of fire?

You know, they'll want to use your sofa's arm rest for their assault weapons, so you should only put one fighter on each piece of furniture.

Yikes! What about my dining room? I've planned a formal setting for an eight-course meal with my Limoges china. Is that okay?

Sure, as long as the guys can squeeze off a few rounds from an open window between the soup and fish courses.

Who has the worst taste on earth?

Knock-knock! Hello, are you Aisha, the daughter of fugitive strongman Muammar Gaddafi?

Who wants to know?

I believe I'm expected. I'm Lamar, the writer from "Extremely Poor Taste" magazine. I'm here for a tour of your home.

Decorating with a brain and a crane…

Blog Guy, several months ago you analyzed the Libyan conflict by comparing the furniture styles of the Gaddafi supporters and the rebels. I believe you called it "Divan intervention in Libya?" What else can we learn by looking at protesters and their furniture?

Good question. Check these demonstrators in Israel in the top photo. They've done a fine job of turning their protest site into a cozy living room.
