We are also on a mission to turn the place into a fully functional babe lair - however that costs money (which we have a little of), and an eye for stylish things (which we don't have). It is pretty big, two large rooms plus two bedrooms, hardwood floors and lots of character. I was thinking of finding some aspiring internal decorator (female of course) and enlisting her help. Although that is probably just wishful thinking.
I watched part of Warren Miller's "Ride" last night, man I already miss skiing, it is going to be a long summer. You know how sometimes you hear sounds or smell things that instantly bring back a memory, especially the ones that are good. Well, Warren Miller's voice does that for me. Instantly makes me want to go up into the mountains.
I meant to mention something earlier about my first successful lucid dream (since early childhood). I have been trying to do this for a while and pretty much gave up actively pursuing it months ago. I will post the dream log for that night sometime later.
