A friend linked this house tour on fb. I love it.

It made me think of how annoyed I get when I see real estate photos of houses…

I’m guilty of watching renovation shows… the reveals mostly – where the you get to see the shock and horror surpise and delight of the renovatees. I’m still waiting for the day that they rip out someone’s hills hoist from their backyard, (yes, they “replaced it with a fold down clothes line attached to a wall in a ‘utility area'”) and when they do the reveal, you can see how pissed off the home owner is that they got rid of it. I’d be mighty pissed off if someone did that to my clothes line! I wouldn’t give a shit that there’s now a deck and an outdoor balinese-style day bed. Where the hell am I meant to hang my clothes to dry in the sun now?!

Slippery Slide!!! August 12, 2011

I just saw this on the news on tv… according to my google search, it’s not new news, but then again, we are in Australia, things take a while to get to us…

How COOL is this? A slippery slide to get to the train platform! Woot!

I can forsee a problem if it gets hot, but I figure that it doesn’t get as hot in Holland as it does in our Sunshine State. But what happens when it’s cold?

Either way, it’s way cool. Like the slippery slide they have in the Singapore airport! Makes me want to go on a cool slippery slide tour around the world. :D
