This would be my worst nightmare. To quote Woody Allen, "I am at two with nature."

I thought the desk was impressive; you've hit it out of the park with this bed! Very, very well done!

I also like the rug in your bedroom; very nice.

Well done! Looks like the perfect place to stretch out on with a book.

Love the idea of the TV on the easel.

Taking the toiletries in your room isn't stealing, those are included in the cost of your room. If you don't use them you are losing money. Cleaning out the maid's cart of toiletries, however, is another story.

"Under the Tuscan Sun" is another good one.

I was staying in 5-star hotel in Aix-en-Provence that had wonderful bathrobes, and there was a note on the robe saying that an anti-theft device (audio) had been sewn into the robe, so don't try stealing it or you will be embarrassed when a piercing shriek emits from the robe. Hardly necessary, as the hotel already has the guests' credit card and can charge the missing items to that. Amusing, though.

Poisonous spiders, but only rarely. Lots of homeless, unfortunately. If I visit friends who live in nearby canyons and hillsides there are an abundance of rattlesnakes and scorpions (so I insist said friends come to my house instead).

I don't know how anyone can live in Florida. No personal income tax is fabulous, but contending with the "nature" of the state would give me a stroke!

Cherries! And the great mint ice cream sandwiches from Trader Joe's. Popsicles from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Lots of watermelon.

Cooked spinach; hate the slimy texture. I do love it raw, though.

I was at a funeral Mass and heard a cell phone go off. My initial thought was that whoever the phone belonged to must have been mortified at not turning it off, but then I heard someone say "hello" and begin a conversation. It was the man sitting directly behind me, and he continued the conversation even as he got in line for communion. No embarrassment or apology whatsoever. Stunning to say the least.

I must be lukewarm. I'm a minimalist/clean freak, but I love my home and use it all the time. I cook from scratch every day. I think of it as having the best of both warm and cool living.

I remember this kind of thing when I was a little kid in the 80s, flipping through issues of Metropolitan Home. Didn't like it then, don't like it now.

Open faced grilled cheese, with thick slices of tomato and sauteed bell pepper cut into chunky pieces.

Mac and cheese.

Tomato soup (when is it not good?).

Homemade pizza topped with black and green olives and bell pepper.

Brownies.

Given how spacious and comfortable it appears to be, I imagine getting people out of it would be a problem. I can well imagine someone spending as long as possible in there to avoid going back to their seat.
