    Never mind that I am so fucking old that I used to babysit for Simon. His blog is awesome, even though I don't really get all the references.

I love your blog and the details about Lunaea bring the calling card and fainting couch.

I love looking at houses and thinking about houses. To me, there is nothing better to do when walking than to attempt to peer through people's windows at night and try to decide whether I like the person or not based on the house.

It fascinates me the way I walk in someone's house and think everything in the house reflects my friend's personality and taste. Meanwhile, almost everything in MY house was given to me by someone now dead or is some cheap piece of garbage I bought with the intention of replacing it WHEN I HAD MONEY.

As if.


One of my favorite memories of my mom is visiting her in Holland (during my college years)and our train ride through Belgium ... She (ok,us!) were peeking into as many windows possible as the train whizzed by the homes.


Claudia, you wold love walking in my neighborhood because I have no window coverings in my living room which can be seen easily from the street. I love to look in windows as well. My house is perfect for me-a 1927 Spanish Bungalow with high ceilings, hardwood floors and a breakfast room and separate laundry room. 3 bdrms 1 3/4 baths. All rooms are a different color. My house is ME!.
Thanks Ann for another great read.

Hmmm, I like this now, but I might not like it later.


Our house is a mixture of different styles--nothing consistent. Yeah, you're right.


I actually do have a fainting couch. Do Moo cards count as calling cards? Miss Manners would probably object, because they actually have info on them, as opposed to just my name. I may get some useless name-only cards just to befuddle people. Now, there's a lifestyle quirk!


Love this post.

looking forward to your other blog post. Keep it up.
