More Real Estate with Auntie

Eh. I kind of don’t like this one. The Deer Tower in West Sussex.

It’s an 18th Century (feh! Modern architecture) faux castle that once belonged to Judy Garland. It’s not that big – just three bedrooms – but I reckon it gets its £6.25 million price tag from the 120 acre estate overlooking the South Downs. That would be nice to have!

That spacious master bedroom gives me the willies. I think I’d feel really vulnerable sleeping with all that open space around me. I’d rather sleep in a closet.

These old places are sooooo romantic!

I wonder how is the plumbing? With all these old places, I would expect there to be massive plumbing problems ongoing from year to year. Septic tank disposal, city or county sewer? I know! SO unromantic! Well or county water?

Did you see that kitchen? It looks like being chained to a drafty wall is the cook’s destiny!

Where is the pool and deck for sunbathing? Hope it’s not near the septic.

It is lovely, but keeping up the landscaping would break me. I guess this is the kind of place where your first and most important employee is a head gardener. Though I’m not a fan of all those sharply cut hedges.

Speaking of sleeping, Stoaty—how about a review of the Vispring mattress.

Pay particular attention to Line 3; the ONLY thing I had to do was to switch the numbers in 2 and 5. I even have (a+b=b+a) set to true.

“Choose wisely, my friends” as the old saw goes. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t give it to me except that it’s not exactly (a+b=b+a).

You’d just need to think of all that space around the bed as a larger kill zone, then you’d sleep better.

The answer is to have Japanese Nightingale floors installed so that if anyone is coming you will hear them in time to load the shotgun.

Do you mean rack a round into the chamber, or load the shotgun

You could also get a hoard of yappy little chihuahua mixes. Ask me how I know.
