Because I have (gasp) cooked and dropped way too many squished bits of garlic and tuna on my floor, I wanted to see if other people had crap hidden near their kickboards. Damn that Lindsay Lohan for having such a tidy kitchen. I rather love Ricky Martin's kitchen ... I bet now that he's daddy to twins it ain't looking like that anymore!
The dear little thing has managed to rent a $7100US a month pad in Venice, on the beach in California, according to RealEstalker. Watch out though - the contemporary glass house doesn't have a handrail on the stairs. Might not be good after a night on the tiles ...
I know I've been away awhile, but blogging can be like that. What with work, children and having to go and see children's movies to appease the mother guilt of working and having children. I lost nearly three hours of my life yesterday watching Tron, a movie best suited to 9-year-old boys, 10-year-old boys and my own children.
Watching Tron did inspire me to blog, mainly because I wished I had a laptop in front of me while I was in the cinema. I rather liked the main character Sam Flynn, purely for aesthetic reasons. But I particularly liked his shipping container house. V cool, I thought, as 3-D glasses slipped from my nose and made the world all blurry again. The set design the rest of the world - and Dwell - talked about didn't really thrill me at all. It seemed so contrived and expected ... a bit like the plot of Tron.

Houses are a bit like modern art - there's always a bigger, a better and more outrageous thing around the corner. And now India's richest man is proving it. He's built a 173-metre tall mansion in Mumbai for an estimated billion dollars. The house has three helipads, its own air traffic control, a six-floor car park, a staff of 600, a four-storey hanging garden and a cinema. It's been named Antilia, after a mythical island in the Atlantic Ocean, and has just been completed after seven years of construction. Hmm, not sure it's my thing. Read more here.

Alex Brooks is also known as Lexy Brooks due to the Englishman who stole my name. Strangely, she's also been known as Alex May, but that had to change when she worked with Katie May for fear of people thinking we were sisters.
