You Shouldn’t Throw Stones If You Live In A Glass House
So, I’m gonna move past that draft I wrote for a while and bring to your attention that there is a $35 million GLASS HOUSE that was completed 4 months ago by Los Angeles-based architect Steve Hermann out in Montecito, California. The house is on 13,875 square feet of land, with 5 bedrooms, five and a half baths, a wine room that can hold thousands of bottles, and an art gallery featuring some of Hermann’s vintage cars. This is utterly ridiculous. How can someone spend $35 million dollars on a glass house. I’m just completely shocked.
I would rather live in Eddie Murphy’s $20 Million dollar house. It’s bigger, cost less and looks a lot cooler too.
Honestly though, this is all too much unless you have multiple families living with you, or you plan on using your place as a resort/tourist attraction and charging people to come see it.
After visiting Roxanne and Lorraine’s blog Late to the Party, I found myself wanting to add a little of what they have there. Lorraine does a little segment every day called 30 Days of Truth. So, I’m gonna give it a try starting today.
30 Days of Truth
Something you hate about yourself.
This is probably going to be hard for me in the beginning because I’m not usually brutally honest with myself. I’m gonna go with the fact that I cannot read as fast as most other people.
I enjoy reading. I really do. I just can’t seem to read that fast or to make myself find time to read because there are so many things that I could be doing. I usually find myself sitting down at the computer and checking out my blog and other fascinating websites before I actually think about reading. The book I’m currently reading “The White Tiger” by Aravind Adiga, is a great book. I especially like the way he writes this book like the narrator is writing a letter to someone. It’s due back at the library on Thursday. This means that I have to finish the remaining 225 pages in 2 days.
Hopefully one of my readers has dealt with this and has come up with a solution and would like to share that with me.
I’ve never been able to read fast though. it takes me like 20 minutes to get through like 7-8 pages while my wife can finish an entire book within like 4 hours. That may be an exaggeration, but she definitely reads really fast.
So there we have it, my first entry in the 30 Days of Truth. Check back tomorrow for the next installment. Here’s a sneak peak at all 30 days:
