It’s Been A While

Wow… it really has been. I’ll suffice it to say that I’ve been spending my time watching Stargate Atlantis with the Mister, playing WoW, and generally trying to be as lazy as possible before school started again. I was planning on posting earlier this week, but my computer became overrun with spyware and viruses and all manner of yuck, so I reformatted and reinstalled Windows. I plan to make regular posts again from now on!

What I wore yesterday: American Eagle shirt and dress, H&M tights, Blowfish hobbit booties, Urban Outfitters hat, necklace from my cousin Callie.

The hobbit booties, by the way, are the most amazing shoe invention I’ve ever come across. They win in terms of form, function, warmth, and comfort. I have the grey flannel ones, and they’re like walking around all day in extremely warm slippers. It’s snowy and wet in Missoula right now, but these shoes definitely held up under pressure. I recommend them. I love them. Hobbit booties.

    Hi Deb,Saw your post and got interested in your own hbiobt home existing in lil ol’ Perth. Would love to come and see such awesome architecture in my native city.Any chance of coming to have a look at what you have built?I’m currently up in Exmouth, hoping to get land to embark on a project with a mate and I. We aim to have a few accommodations made from monolithic building practises, as well as a sunken amphitheatre made from earthbags. Our project is called Option B’:Option B is unique tourist accommodation: an eco-friendly hostel/backpackers/camping area all rolled in to one, created from scratch and run with as minimal an impact on the environment as possible with a focus on educating guests of all walks of life about sustainable living practices and introducing them to the splendid surrounds of the Gascoyne region. Option B will endeavour to use natural resources (such as solar and wind generated power) for energy on site, as well as solely using recycled materials to build guest accommodations (converted caravans, train carriages, yachts and hbiobt homes’) that are designed to aesthetically reflect a “green” business geographically located in an area with spectacular marine life and a plethora of water based activities nearby. Minimising water wastage will be a priority and made effective via grey water systems, compost waste solutions and self- sufficient gardens. Ample edible produce from our garden beds will be a task, to say the least, in Exmouth’s harsh climate but it’s a challenge we’re looking forward to tackling. Whilst the business wouldn’t be “off-the-grid” or entirely self-sustainable, the concept that we hope would appeal to guests would be that of attaining as close to a carbon neutral option as possible while staying at our ‘homestay away from home’. Option B will provide a wealth of activities (and advice on activities) without stretching the visitor’s budget. We’re aiming to (gradually over time) fine tune our approach to tourist accommodation that will hopefully develop a unique vibe on site and one day make Option B a tourist attraction/destination in itself set in the stunning surrounds of Exmouth, built and run by two enthusiastic West Australians who collectively hold over two decades of experience in the hospitality industry. My mobile is 0420 228 104 and email is . I’m back in Perth for a week in the middle of November. BR,Peteps. Jim awesome hbiobt home. If I’m ever in NY I’ll definitely come visit!
