  • - So you're living in-- And I visited you there,

  • Portia and I and my brother,

  • and we were lucky enough to go see you.

  • But it's a big place. Now--

  • - It's a big house.

  • - First of all, are you used to living in it by now?

  • Do you get used to that?

  • - Yeah, yeah, you absolutely do.

  • I mean, when we first moved in,

  • it was like drinking from a fire hydrant, you know?

  • Just everything coming at you, trying to--

  • - Have you tried that before? How would you know what that is?

  • What a weird thing to do.

  • - It's true. I guess you're right.

  • Let's just say it's hard. It's really hard.

  • - It's interesting. - Yeah, it really is.

- So you're living in-- And I visited you there,
