Cabin Gets New Coat to Avoid Demolition!

From Our Special Correspondent,
Edge-of-Universe,

According to reliable sources (me!) , the cabin at the Edge-of-Universe has been given an 'unprecendented' shade of freezing blue and raging red. It seems this sudden change in color was brought about as a pre-emptive measure against the impending demolition of this little structure by big bad burly builders who have no bussiness but to be on a crazy construction spree around the Edge-of-Universe. The painting seems to be an assertion that this place is still alive.

Apparently, the little cabin is not being spared of the real estate boom Edge-of-Universe is in the midst of, right now. A gravel road has been laid right up to about 10 feet from the doorstep of this little cabin (which actually, looks quite out of this world!). Cabin lovers around the world are scandalized by this new development and are woving to do everything they can to stop the demolition of the cabin, as soon as they find out where it actually exists. Some cabin lovers are speculating that they might also wait till the real estate bubble bursts after which the construction of concrete monsters might just stop coming up.

Our alert special correspondent, after the rain on saturday, expected a clear blue sky on sunday morning and went to the epicenter of this crisis to take some pictures. Our special correspondent in his own words: 'It's a cool place to hang out on a sunday morning, duuude!'

Now that we have already given you the news, it is now 'BROKEN' news. If we have more breaking news, watch this space! ;-)



[OK, seriously, this thing has been repainted. And the markings have been made for what looks like a building complex that might come up soon. It's days ARE numbered. :-( ]

Where is this place????!

Blue and red is a great combo for this cabin..if i dint know better, i'd say it was a subliminal ad for Pepsi..

I'd hate to see it go Vikki, but hey, what if it ends up like Arthur Dent's house????
