rue-madame's Diaryland Diary

Size matters

Oh my god, people. The book that I “designed” (and that I will finally be paid in full for once Fedex shows up) is now number three on the New York Times bestseller list (paperback.)

Let’s talk about some differences between CA and CT:

- Cop cars in CT are gray. In CA, they are black and white.

- Cement trucks in CT appear to rotate in the opposite direction of cement trucks in CA. I don’t know if it’s the way they are painted or what, but when you see one on the road, it looks like it’s driving backwards.

- It rains when it’s hot here. In CA, it hardly ever rains, and when it does, it’s cold out.

- The coast is south. In California, the coast is always west. This goes a long way toward explaining why we always feel like we’re pointing the wrong way. I cannot get oriented to save my life.

- Garage sales are called tag sales.

The weekend was fun, but we didn’t amortize the fun over three days. Friday was definitely less fun than Sunday, and Saturday was somewhere in between (as it often is.) Monday could be called medium fun.

Today is the first day of Terence’s “summer hours.” Monday through Thursday, he works from 8am to 5:15pm, and on Fridays from 8am to 1pm. I don’t know what we’re going to do with that extra time on Fridays. I guess we should make elaborate weekend plans, and then get stuck in traffic with the other idiots?

Once we’re done acquiring a Fall-Winter-Spring house, we’ll focus on the Summer one. Our dream, actually, is to own little spaces all over the place. Instead of having one giant palace, we want tiny pied-a-terres in different cities around the world. (NY and Paris for sure.) Whatever we buy here is just the first building block in what will hopefully be a passel of properties.

It’s good to think big.
