Well, yesterday I went to that dome home I was talking about in the earlier post, parked the car in the driveway (I had to turn around so that I wouldn't get hit pulling out on the busy street that runs next to it). Even before I had gotten out of the car the owner was down the steps and meeting me halfway between my car and his house. I introduced myself and explained that I wanted to come by and shoot a short video for the blog but he totally nixed it. "Yeah," he said. "We're private people, so we're not going to do that." I was polite and thanked him and moved on.
All I've got to say is, how do you spell "private?" How about M-E-T-H-L-A-B ? Or how about G-R-O-W-R-O-O-M ? Damn hippies and their dome homes.
Now I've got to scope out the other dome home in town (at last count, yes, there are two) and see if that one is even inhabited. I got an email back from the guy about the ebay listing photos, but for some reason I'm feeling a little hinky about dealing with him. The listing does provide a good, basic, run-down of what a dome home is, so I encourage readers to take a gander.
Gotta go to class, but here is a Wikipedia entry about the Xanadu house.
