philanthropic muse's manor
Is A Philanthropic Muse’s Manor.
Your kitchen is someplace you never go because you “have people for that.” There’s a Chocolatessen which is rapidly becoming your favorite room of the house. [Having one is also becoming a trend among your wealthy neighbors.] Your master bedroom is the size of a small barn with carpet thick enough to reach your ankles. Your study has hardback editions of every classic ever written plus a special edition of Rich Dad, Poor Dad with the parts you ghost-authored highlighted. One of your garages holds your collection of Ferraris and is measured in acreage.
Your home also includes a guest wing and private quarters for your servants. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens meticulously tended by a team of [sexy shirtless manly man] world-class botanists.
[Yay yay yay!]
Below is a snippet of the blueprints :

Wow. You got a wet bar and I only got a lambada room!
Am totally with you on Frank Lloyd Wright. I find architects and builders sexy. The term Chocolatessen is new to me, but I like it. Ice Cream and Chocolate, bring it on!
@ Rain : Nifty, huh?
You got a jet but I am afraid of heights so that kind of worked out for me.
You know you are going to need rumba panties for that lambada room too that is just work.
@ Martyne : Oh Frank Lloyd Wright rocks. October is architecture month too yay! [I have no idea who makes up these days and months but since I will be house hunting in October that really works for me.]
My birthday is in October so it is a month that rocks for me anyway. FLW does it for me, big style, but my current fancy is Norman Foster (Sir). The “Gherkin” in London is great but check out the Millau Viaduct in France. My brother will bore you with all the stats but, for me, it is the most beautiful man-made creation I have ever seen. It makes me shed tears every time I gaze upon it. I am crying now, just at the thought of it.
The Millau Viaduct is a very beautiful structure. It transcends four dimensions in a way.
[ps : for anyone who does not know it this is the millau viaduct]
Thanks for the pic Max. I haven’t seen that one before. It seems a strange quirk of fate that a structure designed and built by men can be so beautiful, gorgeous and slender. There’s hope for us all yet!
As a species, we are capable of as much beauty as we are of destruction and pain. The beauty is just more rare. It is more difficult.
Know what you mean max. When we do do beauty it is great. Even if we can appreciate the beauty around us, ie nature, then I think we are walking on the right path. I hate living in a city. People get so divorced from reality. I love the fact that my job takes me out into the country once a week and I can connect with the “real world”, as I see it.
“There’s a Chocolatessen…”
I have so got to keep up with the Adams’.
Just realised that Chocolatessen means “chocolate eating” in German, duh! First they invaded Poland, then Blogspot, and now you. Mein Gott!
Hey, I like quizzes less and less. When I answered a question on this one(and, NO, I’m not telling which one), it spit out “WIERDO” in a nasty red font! Now I’m totally crushed. Then to add insult to insult, the blueprints I supposedly want have a library totally devoted to Romance. I swear I haven’t read Romance (except for Amanda Quick-who really only laughs at the genre and, okay, writes incredibly hot masterful men) in ages. I only read classics, non-fiction, and, of course, Max Adams!
Yu are so making that up.
My results were the same as yours, Max, except:
“Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. And, you have a pet — a doberman pincer named “Warren”.”
I just hope the place includes someone to follow Warren and pick up his poo.
You got a dog?
I was so robbed.
There are servant quarters full of people to pick up after Warren.
Also got the same results as yours. The “Backup Ferrari” is exhilarating. I’d never thought of, but if I really had the money, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have a backup one (note that I haven’t the original, either). Wonder if the second would replace the first for engine failure or for crash at 200 MPH.
GAME OVER! YOU HAVE CRASHED AND TRASHED YOUR NEW CAR — INSERT COINS AND START ALL OVER AGAIN.
A Chocolatessen ! Oh my god, that’s like having your own personal PMS bar!
Your home is a Athletic Muse’s Villa Your kitchen is actually a GNC franchise, though all you really need are your Power Bars and Red Bulls. There’s a pantry with emergency backup caffeinated beverages. You also have some breakfast cereals in there, but you haven’t had breakfast since last Spring. Your master bedroom has a bedside table with a pad for writing down late-night inspirations. Your study has current issues of Sports News & Sports Illustrated, marked with a highlighter for better preparing your fantasy sports league. One of your garages houses your Hummer, and others contain your H2, and H3… with room for an H4, if they ever invent one. Your home also includes a gallery of your favorite works — the originals, of course. Your guests enjoy your home theater with 37 different sports channels. Outside is your radio telescope, listening constantly for alien transmissions. Especially invaders. They’ll come eventually, even if nobody believes you. (Nobody does.)And, you have a pet — a cat named “Vincent”.Below is a snippet of the blueprints: Find YOUR Dream Home!
What! No PMS bar?
Hey, after marking off maybe three things in section three I thought my house was gonna be empty….
“I hate living in a city. People get so divorced from reality.”
Sounds good to me!
I wonder how Pumpkin is going to take the news about Vincent.
I could lie and say he’s a gift for her…
That is not a lie, that is spin. You are so smart.
Monkeys are just like that.
I followed your link from the sulking corner all the way back to over here.
Blane’s building an MMA blog, so I was showing him your pages.
[some pages like the sulking page are cheating, that and the search page are not really on the blog they are on seemaxrun]
MMA, Mixed Martial Arts. I think he may have some boxing in there too.
I had a teacher who mixed styles. It is funny to me it is all official now as MMA instead of just MA. He would have been very disapproving he thought there was too much pride wrapped up in specific schools and styles and things needed less of that.
