My Dream Home?

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

That quote's from me to you, Judy! LOL...

So, because I didn't have enough to do and was beginning to get a little bit bored (HA!), I have decided to redo my personal website (no, it's not done yet). Look for an unveiling within the next week or so. I spent a good part of the day on it yesterday. So did Judy. Maybe it's a good thing we don't live closer together. The world would simply not be safe.

In other news, my good friend and writing compadre, Allie, won Ciar Cullen's Best E-Book of the Summer contest. Phew! It was a close race. Go forth and congratulate her!

========================

You may have already seen this, but Judy reminded me about it yesterday, and I had to share because it always makes me chuckle. I give you:

The Impotence of Proofreading --



========================

Stolen Borrowed from Tori:



Your home is a

Daylight Magnate's Manor

Your kitchen is someplace you never go, because you "have people for that." There's a Chocolatessen, which is rapidly becoming your favorite room of the house. Having one is also becoming a trend among your wealthy neighbors. Your master bedroom is the size of a small barn, with carpet thick enough to reach your ankles. Your study has hardback editions of every classic ever written, plus a special edition of Rich Dad, Poor Dad with the parts you ghost-authored highlighted. One of your garages holds your collection of ferraris, and is measured in acreage.

Your home also includes a guest wing and private quarters for your servants. Your guests enjoy your home theater with 37 different sports channels. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens, meticulously tended by a team of world-class botanists.

And, you have a pet -- a doberman pincer named "Warren".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:


Find YOUR Dream Home!


I don't know about the rest, but I'm totally digging that romance library!!

You got a hedge maze?! I want one!!! I'm jealous about your Ferrari collection, too! But then I have an on-call masseuse, so I guess I can't complain TOO much. *g*

I ended up with a non-rebelling robot and a comic book library...

That was a good video on the impotence of proofreading.

I hope you had a good Sunday.

I'm still snorting over "impotence of proofreading."

I've got the Philanthropic Villa:

Your kitchen is someplace you never go, because you "have people for that." There's a Chocolatessen, which is rapidly becoming your favorite room of the house. Having one is also becoming a trend among your wealthy neighbors. Your master bedroom has a bedside table with a pad for writing down late-night inspirations. Your study has hardback editions of every classic ever written, plus a special edition of Rich Dad, Poor Dad with the parts you ghost-authored highlighted. One of your garages holds your collection of ferraris, and is measured in acreage.

Your home also includes a gallery of your favorite works -- the originals, of course. Your guests enjoy your animatronic replica of the cantina at Mos Eisley. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens, meticulously tended by a team of world-class botanists.

And, you have a pet -- a cat named "Vincent".
