Now everyone already knows about our problems keeping our library in order. If it is not one tribe of books warring with another, then it is an all out anarchy rebellion with books running everywhere breaking the china and scaring the cats (wait, we don’t have any cats....) Recently we took some time to organize and restore order to our bookcases and ran across a book we had not perused in some time.
It seems as though we like our architecture like we like our music (that would be spike clad and drenched in gloom). At the time we purchased this book we envisioned living in an EVIL GOTHIC COTTAGE studded spires and turrets and encrusted with stained glass oriel windows reminiscent of devil’s eyes. (Needless to say, the fore mentioned cottage would need to be surrounded by a demon haunted forest straight out of an Immortal song.) But it turns out that gothic cottages are EXPENSIVE even if they are only mildly bad tempered and not actually evil (so yet another architectural related daydream cast to the wayside…)

Embrace me eternally in your daylight slumber
To be draped by the shadow of your morbid palace
Oh, hate living...The only heat is warm blood
