Misguided Travel Guides: Jeremy’s House

If you’re ever in Albuquerque and can somehow swing it, I suggest you stay at Jeremy’s House. Seriously, it is amazing. 80% solar powered, with beautiful vistas of the city (especially at night), Jeremy’s Mom will even heat up leftovers for you and suggest you take biscotti for the road! I was a little worried when his dad asked “So, how do you know Jeremy?” and I had to reply “I’m… his friend?” while trying to ignore all the times I have made fun of him in Cabinet minutes, called him JerBear, or made small, jabbing remarks about his constant, constant geology field trips to non-geological places like Paris. But then we started talking about Jeremy’s various schemes and we felt right at home.

Also, Jeremy basically has an ornithological zoo in his back yard:

OMG QUAIL!

OMG QUAIL!

There were lots of other, dramatic birds as well, but I like quail. Also, adorable rabbits:

Adorable, itchy rabbits!

Adorable, itchy rabbits!

Despite these, and other attractions, I would say the best feature of the Jeremy Caves House is definitely the one thing Steven would not let me photograph: Jeremy’s Little Mermaid sheets. We slept in Jeremy’s room (which is kind of odd, but I have invited him to visit Florida to sleep in my room at any time when I am not there so it’s fair) which has two single beds that are lamentably no longer bunked. Or maybe that’s for the best since it would have involved Steven and I getting into an unbecoming shouting match over who got the top bunk. The bed I was in had the expected train-themed sheets but Steven lucked out with the amazingness of Little Mermaid. I can only hope that, when at home, Jeremy sleeps happily in the company of Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian while dreaming his environmentally conscious dreams.
