OK, Mike - that is worthy of a "Go to your room!"



The first thing that comes to mind for me - isn't what they had, but what they didn't have. It was a $4.5 million home, and had more bathrooms thean bedrooms - but not one bathroom had a hand towel (or any towel, for that matter) to wipe your hands with after washing. They actually didn't even have towel rings or rods, but everything else was marble and gilded - I wondered what they used or did they even wash?

Thats okay. They be talking about me too. Ive been collecting antiques and klediments all my life. My house is stuffed with stuff. BTW I love seeing other peoples collections even if its not something I would personally want. I dont care for porn tho. I dont care how "interesting" it is.

Come sit by me honey. We can talk about all those peeps who dont have nothing interesting to look at.

I don't see strange stuff in other peoples homes, but many people seem afraid to stay in ours. We have at least 24 mannequins in various costumes and multiple body parts. Many reptiles. My girlfriend studies different religions, so we have a massive collection of religious art, figurines and collectables. Airline seats used to sit in the kitchen, complete with a passenger. And over 40 different collections, ranging in size from small pin-backs to the full size mannequins. It is very close and dark in the house like a small museum. I love it.

ok I understand why you have it but it would make me feel weird kinda like my late grandfather similar to an above poster he had Deer Heads, mounted fish, pheasant, squirrel and a wild boar (isnt all boars wild? lol)
on his walls . It was ok except it made some wild dreams if you took a nap in that room.
