Overheard in Indy

Guy on cell phone in front of a downtown restaurant:

"Felicia? She hot! Girl got sixty-five-hunnerd dollar boobs!"

Decorator's Show Home Moves to Hilbert Mansion

I laughed out loud when I pulled up the front page of today's Indy Star! St. Margaret's Guild has signed an agreement to open Le Chateau for a massive tour and include 47 design areas and 17 landscaping areas. It's the perfect solution, or maybe the perfect irony. (If we had an Indiana- focused Onion, it would already have been a headline.) The Decorator's Show House has found a home that will welcome its opulent decorative craziness, draw thousands of looky-lous (excuse me, I mean, attendees), and bring real estate attention to a show home possibly even more over-the-top and controversial than the event itself. Not only have they pulled this year's event out of the fire, but they're going to make it hard to top next year. I predict the most successful event ever! And, one bonus? The owners have already moved out.
