Scalzi's weekend assignment is to reveal something you WANT. For instance, he wants to upgrade his digital camera to a D50 Nikon. For some of us, toys aren't enough.
I want to upgrade my eensy weensy house to a home on top of a mountain in Hawaii. A home that has a roof that opens up to the sky so I can see the stars and the moon at night.
A home that has no walls [except a few well placed for privacy] A home that has a stream running throughout with some waterfalls.
A home that has a fireplace in the center of everything -- a circular column of black marble with water streaming down the sides and a fireplace underneath, all surrounded by a sofa.
A home with indoor trees and plants arranged in natural settings not pots. With lots of native flowers in bloom throughout so the air smells fragrant all the time. And a gentle breeze bringing the outdoors into the rooms.
A home with bathrooms that are large and open with views of the mountainside through plate glass windows in the shower.
I think I'm going to need a helicopter to get up there, so better build some kind of landing pad for it.
Okay, time to come back down to earth.
EXTRA CREDIT: Will this make you happy? Let me move in and I'll let you know.
