Life in the South Side

I love my home. It’s great. Huge, full of crazy shit and secret passages, a wet bar, a pool. I’m renting a killer house in a neighbourhood that would otherwise be way, way beyond my pay grade. We were lucky enough to get a great deal when we moved in last year, and our rent is dirt cheap. Much cheaper than it was at our old place, in fact. But, as I say, the neighbourhood is completely insane. Million-dollar homes everywhere.

Lysandra and I took a walk around the block today, and I happened to have my camera with me. Feast your eyes upon the excesses of my neighbours!

Porsche

Benz

Seems a bit dodgey

MG

Mini Cooperr

1947 Mercury

(I didn’t bother taking photos of the lesser luxury brands, like Lexus or Audi.)

  1. No, same house. I don’t think we gave you guys the grand tour last time, you’ll have to come by for a BBQ or something this spring.

  2. ok it just seemed that your original entry made it sound like you had moved or something… or i’m just on crack :P

  3. Hit albums? ’47 Mercs next door?

    I guess I’m too ghetto to talk to you anymore ;).

    (p.s. I like the way they bent the plate on the front of the mini to make it look European… heh)

  4. shut yo mouth!

    heh – i love and grew up with minis and spent a little time helping out my dad restore a 67 cooper s when i was older, so i’m biased (and prob a little obsessed as i still haven’t found a way to own one of my own.)

    it’s not typical luxury, but this little blue number is in great shape for a classic mini and i’d take this baby over an audi or lexus any day…

  5. please take no offense to this, as i have just woken up:
    i read “way beyond my pay grade” as “way beyond my gay pride”.
    you need to have some bitchin’ pool parties before you leave that place.
