The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of

There's nothing like working ten straight 12+ hour days (including weekends) to make a person dream of a life in which she doesn't have to work at all. That was my mindset when I found this.

The photos are of author Neil Gaiman's basement, and it is certainly my kind of basement. It rates second on my all-time list of favorite rooms. (First place goes to the library in Beast's castle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Of course that's an animated movie where the laws of physics don't apply--so if reality is a criteria, then Gaiman's basement rates first.)

Someday, when I win the lottery (without having bought a ticket, mind you), I will find my dream house and it will have a basement just like that one.

Well, I can dream, can't I?
