My "Dream Home," as determined by an online quiz:


Your home is a

Magic Magnate's Castle

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. Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. Outside is your hedge maze and gardens, meticulously tended by a team of world-class botanists.

And, you have a pet -- a doberman pincer named "Warren".

Below is a snippet of the blueprints:

This is the second one I got, which I like much better. Well, they could just be two different wings of the house...er, estate.



Your home is a

Philanthropic Wizard's Mansion

Your kitchen is manned by a team of Keebler Drow Elves. 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 decorated to look like the treetop village of the Galadhrim. Your study has every fantasy novel ever written, including multiple editions of the Silmarillion and advance copies of Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. One of your garages holds your collection of ferraris, and is measured in acreage.

Your home also includes a roost for griffons. You've never actually seen a griffon, but you keep the roost ready anyway. Your guests enjoy your home theater with hi-def plasma screen TV, and the thrones you watch it from. Outside is the moat that protects your home from goblin invaders and extended family.

And, you have a pet -- a unicorn named "Shadowhooves".

Find YOUR Dream Home!


Caspian had a doctor's appointment yesterday because I found a pea-sized lump under the skin on his right leg. It feels like there's a little ball in there stuck to his muscle or something. The doctor said the lump could be one of two things. It's either a little bit of something that got under his skin (like glass or wood) when he was crawling around...or a tumor. Basically, if it gets smaller or goes away in the next couple of weeks, it's just some foreign matter that got in there (if it's natural, it may just get absorbed by his body; otherwise, we may have to get it cut out). He also sent us home with some info about this genetic nerve disorder that involves tumors, but made us promise not to freak out or anything, since it's just a possibility. It's not bothering Caspian, even when we touch it, which is a good sign. Please praypraypraypraypray until his appointment next month.

My prayers are with you!! It's good that the doctor is calm about it, at least.
