After their infamous day out on the town in Cameron Frye's father's Ferrari, Ferris Bueller tried to talk Cameron off the proverbial ledge as they realized that running the car backwards would not put the miles they had driven without permission back on the odometer.

Cameron's breakdown ensued, and he pushed the sports car off the actual ledge of the glass-enclosed garage on stilts.

The house, a luxury home in Illinois' Highland Park, is now on the market for $2.3 million, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

It was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid and, as viewers noted two decades ago, it sits magnificently atop a ravine. Built in 1953, the famous garage holds three cars and is detached from the main house.

According to a listing for the four-bedroom, four bathroom house, it offers 5,300 square feet of living space and is being sold by Sudler Soethby's Intertantional Realtors.

It has already piqued the interest of several would-be buyers, The Sun Times reports.

Reading

I am finding that time is slipping me by. The dull humdrums of daily living. Ya'll know work and no time for play. For the last few days I have been actually reading and watching NO television. Yah, TV is and as far back as I can remember it's been my baby sitter.
Books a better diversion than most things.
As one who tries not to go with popular trends I usually cave in the end with reluctance. I did with Harry Potter and now with the Twilight series. It is really good. Almost finished with all of them all I have to say is wow.. I can almost identify with Bella too much for a fact..

the others are series of books that I am so excited that they came out I could scream and I gobbled them up and tossed them aside after finishing them. Thank you Ms. Charlaine Harris for giving the world Sookie Stackhouse. And Ms. Kim Harrison thank you so much for giving the world Rachel Morgan.
