we went out for buffet supper with DS #2. It isn't REALLY a date if you go out with a kid, but he is the youngest and hasn't had much opportunity to go out - especially without siblings. DS #1 is an 'adult volunteer' with the army cadet corps and they are doing field training exercises in the provincial park for four days. DD was out with her friend as she always is on Friday night. They rent movies and eat assorted GF food. The friend has a sister with Asperger's so they really GET
her and she gets them...
Anyway- we went out for buffet. It is not dh's favourite... but I was hoping to eat ginger beef... "all you can eat" ginger beef, but there was none. :-|
Then we went to the hospital lottery show home. It was okay- not my idea of a dream home, but they never are! This year the decoration theme was Victorian whorehouse...IMO. I did like the bar in the basement. It was an old counter top piece that had been built in. There were opinions on whether it was built in or not, but I did like that.
Of course there were not enough bedrooms. There was one that was VERY obviously the master bedroom and ensuite with double sinks and TV IN THE MIRRORS
Then there was a furry white glitter rug in the living room. I told ds that it looked like a two year old and a dog rolled on it with a bottle of glitter and mud from the back yard and that was as clean as you could get it. It really did.
There was a bit of a beach theme which is pretty ridiculous on the prairie... but I liked the cement shower with little jewels and shells in it. I think it would have been nice with less of that, though.
Okay- parents of teenagers... who would you put in this bedroom? This is the only bedroom on the main floor and on the other side of the house from the master. Notice any FLAW in the room's design? =8-o
So we bought three tickets and 5 for the 50/50 draw. That house is proof that money can't buy taste or class- just like every year. We were the only ones that weren't thrilled with it.
