GOT THE WANTS? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO GET?

The image “http://weblog.bluedonkey.org/photos/IMG_265.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.



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.

Ah, gentle breezes...
Have you ever watched "Honeymoon in Vegas"?  The house James Caan's character owns in Hawaii might just be the house you're looking for.

Remo's Fortress of Retirement Solitude sounds alot like that. Does yours have a moat?

Mrs. L.
I guess if you added the phrase, "...and someone to share it with,"  it would ruin the whole thing, right?

Sam -- do you think with a house like that I'd be alone for one minutes?  Mrs. L

With the exception of the Hawaii part, the house you are describing is a basic Franl Lloyd Wright. Check out "Fallingwater" sometime.

Frank Lloyd Wright...my bad, Frank.

When you dream, you dream BIG! Sounds lovely.

Wow, you topped me.  I wanted a midcentury mansion in the Tucson foothills.  Still do.  But yours reminds me of my old dream of a mountaintop castle overlooking a California beach. - Karen\
