Periodically the FashionLoo takes a look at the dwellings that some of the Loos are in. Take a look and beginning with number 8 and moving backwards to number 1

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 8 ~ Halle Berry

Very nice, on the beach,Malibu perhaps, very nice.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 7 ~ John Travolta

Mode of transportation for John is flying. Nice parking area for the plane. I am guessing that between jobs he is flying down to Mexico and bringing ... never mind. It's a nice place John.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 6 ~ Jerry Sienfeld

You know, Jerry did exceptionally well financially with the Sienfeld show. He should have gotten better than this modest home.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 5 ~ The Honorable Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Schwarzenegger

Moved here from Austria with a dream. Could not speak a lick of English and it's actually still questionable today. Though, there have been improvements. Maria? Well, everyone knows the old dough came from Old Man Joe in his bootlegging days.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 4 ~ J. Lo & husband Marc Anthony

Very nice for a couple of people who lack talent and personality. Life is fair.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 3 ~ Funny Man, Eddie Murphy

Someone who controls everything in LA sure must have taken a liking to Eddie. He gets more chances after a bad movie than Evil Knievel did after he road rashed

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 2 ~ Oprah Winfrey

I would expect nothing less from Oprah. And this is only one of her cave's. This one is up in the Santa Barbara, CA area. She dropped $55million for this future 5 star hotel after she sells it.

Diggs Sustantivo Casa # 1 ~ The notorious, infamous and probably the most hated man in America and especially Los Angeles is a former Heisman Trophy Winner, NFL Super Star, then moved on to acting. Initially booking commercials, became spokesman for samsonite luggage. After a few years of commercial work he hit the big screen with the Airplane movies. Do you know who this abode belongs to yet? Hint: It’s in a private, gated community with added top-shelf security… you know who it is, it’s the home of O.J. “ass-hole, Delusions of Grandeur” Simpson”

I think his shoe closet in his Palisades Diggs was bigger. Oh well Oh well! 😉

Back 2 Basics anyone?

Take a look at the things, stuff, electronics, picture frames, glass tops to counter tops. Microwave ovens to, George Foreman Grill to the Ron RONCO Rotisserie oven ~ “Set it and forget it” (they never mention what a royal pain in the rear end it is to clean that thing up. But it does cook a great piece of meat. Reel-to-Reel is still the best in quality but you can’t buy one. Beta should have easily beat out VHS but id not. Technology? Perhaps. Who moved faster, was more aggressive, got things going was who became the winner. It really didn’t have a thing to do with quality back then because ppl chose to buy VHS to record. It looked like crap but everything off of the TV set did then. Now it’s Blu-ray and HD-DVD over which format will become the dominant high-definition DVD platform. It’s a flip of the coin and who is the faster runner. So as you see things in your home that were brand new yesterday may be completely out of date today….. Wow my brain flatulated just then and I forgot where I was going with all this. I remembered and will tell you where, back to the basics as we should. I just read and article the other day on this upstart company that builds homes. Yea, big deal you’re thinking. The thing is these homes are ridiculously small somewhere around25 sq ft with a cozy (have ppl always noticed when the word cozy is used that the writer means cramped?) anyway, price tags for these one wheelers about 4 times the size of an outhouse is around 35k. Three br, 2 bath homes built in the 70’s were going for 25k – 30k. Inflation is definitely going to be the death of this country UNLESS we do go back to the basics and stick with them. I am relearning myself. I am fixing things rather than replacing. I am buying used instead of brand new. I ask the cashier at department stores if they have a coupon I can use. Most do. There are coupon books out there that serve the community from dining out to golf. Typically it’s a 2-for-1 deal which is great. So I came across this Loo and the first thing I thought of was Pitcher and Bowl. Now we obviously have better plumbing and such so it’s not entirely necessary to go back too far but back far enough where everything seemed much more peaceful, a simplicity to life, a relaxed hr or two in the sun drink a cold root beer. Take a look at the basin then look around your home. Try and find things that have given us a great advantage over some things but now how can we tone it down so that it is “greener”, better for the consumer, and the quality is unmatched. Send me your ideas. This could stimulate whole new workforce and this is a great thing!

The Top 5 Picks for the Week of 11/16/09

That time of week again. In a few hours everyone who is sound asleep (everyone with JOBS that is) Man, how did this economy get so bad??? I thought I should start being more frugal and participate in shopping smart, do not waste, buy only what I need to survive on like tree bark and water so I decided I would shop at the 99 cent store for some basic home supplies. Every item in the store was over a $1.00. I left without buying anything. Then I came up with a brilliant idea… I went to all the fast food restaurants and grabbed condiments for the house. This is going to save us a bundle I thought. Next I went to every high end restaurant I could find and took the matches for heat and mints by the pocket loads for snacks while watching TV at home. I’m beginning to think this isn’t so bad. Tomorrow I have plans to rob the food bank. I’m going in disguised as a drunk, angry, enough is enough Dan Matthews/VP of PETA with a loaded squirt gun. I’m hoping that everyone will pass out from shock instead of beating the living dog-snot out of me which is highly likely and understanding. I may even look the other way. Anyway, an update will be in next weeks top 5 picks. Meanwhile, here at the ranch, we’ve cut back so much My cat bit me for no reason at all last night. Well actually, he is always biting me. BUT this time he drew blood and he means business. He wants the top of the line IAMS. I explained that the IAMS offer to animals is; “you’re either IN or you’re OUT” Think about it, not funny. This will make you laugh though, how ridiculous the economy has gotten. I read several articles that recently that the worst crime in Asheville, NC is throwing stones at homes. That’s the worst crime. I mean if you were walking by a window and a rock came flying through I suppose that would be bad. Still, the worst crime is throwing stones at homes. AND it happens often. Now in LA you can sell pot for medicinal purposes, beat the living daylights out of someone and claim it was “mutual combat”. You will get a small fine and that is the end of that. The prisons in Asheville NC though are overcrowded with “home stoned throwers” forced to hard labor. In LA Mass murderers have computers and color TV’S. Let’s jaw on this for a second, I can hopefully and God willing get a job at the infamous Walmart to supplement my income for the upcoming holidays. Thanksgiving we’re having chicken and that’s that. Chanukah we’re having kosher spam for 8 days starting on December 11th and continuing through December 19th and that’s that. On Christmas we’ll order Chinese food and that’s that. Now, I have no idea if Walmart even pay their employees with real money, offer them any sort of benefits (but man, Globalization: Walmart is keeping China busy) Or I could sell crack part time, a few hrs a day. Starting off I would make right around $400k. Can I sleep on it tonight and give you an answer in the morning? Oh by the way, do I get an employee discount? No, not at Walmart dummy, for the crack!”

Moving to The Top 5 picks for this rat race week of 11/16/2009…

# 5~ Loo

bathroom-most-beautiful-peptobismol

I wasn't feeling well the other day so I went to the Loo and painted it PeptoBismol.

# 4~ Loo

bathroom_remodel_green_cream

Pepto didn't help much so I went for the mint...

# 3~ Loo

bathroom-wall-art-accessories-II

Anyone notice that the European Loo's all have chandeliers. I'm starting a reFashion on a small guest Loo tomorrow, actually in a few hours, and I will suggest they have a chandelier installed. Gotta upsell during tough times!

# 2~ Loo

bathroom-hers-charming-2009

This beautiful classic look is one that is in most demand to reFashion today.

The number 1 FashionLoo for week 11/16/2997 is…
Everything can be done in one room. Dad reads the paper with a martini (4th one by the way) Mom is bathing Jimmy the greek, all three older sisters don’t want to be near you and Mama looks tired, Pops passed out and my sisters are smoking cigarettes in the house. This is insane for a 9 year old!

Have a great week, check back often and stay in shape. You never know who you may run into…

rats-ass

Sort of reminds me of A-Rod 😉

Our top employee; “the lady said to help myself to a brownie. Chill out Max”

brownies.Got-any-milk-lady

I could really go for a glass of ice cold milk. (this is our top employee. An hour earlier he said he was running out to the truck because he needed additional flooring materials. Max noticed he had been gone for a while so went looking for him. This is how he found him. Note; the pan of brownies he's eating from was full just an hr ago)
