The end of the interweb

One of my greatest strengths is my ability to procrastinate.  When there are dishes to be done, laundry to launder and groceries to get, I have a great propensity to pass the time doing anything but.  The most common method of procrastination is my quest to 'find the end of the interweb' as Josh would say.

On a recent interweb expedition I found a few really awesome things....

1. A kitchen island in a Parisian apartment comprised of 20,000 lego pieces. LOVE IT! (Dwell Magazine)

2. If I could swap homes for a week/month/year I'd pick this houseboat on the Thames where author Josie Curran resides with her boyfriend and dog. The slideshow notes that the owners go for a swim every morning, although I have a hard time imagining they can do this year round...





The slideshow can be found at: http://property.timesonline.co.uk/

3. How cool is this? Radim Kralik and his wife, Barbora Kralikova and their two children make their home in a concrete box situated atop a grain silo in the Czech Republic.  Kralik bought the silo 11 years ago for about $10,000, intending to use the building for his business. Six years and $1 million later, their home was built on top of it.
