Normally you would want your step sister going under the sink messing with that stuff.
I'll save that for when the washing machine goes on the fritz.

I found @Omega Male's new house:


I got nosy - it looks like that house previously belonged to one of the "Real Housewives". I don't know enough about Omega Male but I'm just going to assume that that is right up his lifestyle and he definitely needs the in-house recording studio and salon.

Not that I'll understand a 33,000 sq ft house or the awful taste, but the thing I don't get is the size of rooms that make them impractical. As an example, the kitchen has like 8-10' between the island and the other counter. Most rooms just look empty and senselessly large.

Founder of the company my dad works for was stereotypical nuevo riche. He had a TV in every single room, and made rooms impractically gigantic.

Their bedroom was something like 2000 sq ft. They bought some giant TV, but it was too small to see from the bed when mounted on the wall. So they put in a seating area at that TV, and got another TV to put by the bed.

That places looks like a really kitschy hotel. What possible use could you have for all that space?

My wife would probably qualify as "old money" but given her way she'd happily have a TV in every room. Of course that would necessitate spending the money to buy a bunch of TVs...

But yes, FWIW, I've never understood the appeal of individual rooms being sooooo large. It seems like such a waste of space and resources to me.

Don't take this personal if you have one but I detest TVs in bedrooms.
