    I do in fact. I aspire to my own airport with a huge portrait of myself in gold-braided military uniform.

    We're going to buy Tempelhof and make it into LK's own private airfield.

    While we are in the ingenious category, this sleeper sofa (usually one of the dullest piece of furniture ever) is pretty darn cool. On top of that, it looks quite decent in simple sofa mode.
