Hooray for Friday! Considering that this may have been one of the longest weeks of all time, today is especially wonderful. I woke up in a good mood and my coffee tastes really excellent today. August is finally fucking over (i get to change all my eight hundred calendars!), and it's now My Birthday Month (20 days to go!). Gas prices are falling (though I don't hold my breath long on that one), as is the temperature, and tonight - oh yes, tonight I get to go shake my ass with the beautiful trifecta that is the Illustrious Indygirl, Pablo Perfecto, and Hot Tim. Whee!
I am also looking forward to a long weekend of relaxation. And I'll finally get to watch Dead Poet's Society, which I received from Netflix, like, a week ago.
Hmmm... there aren't new questions up on the Friday Five, so I'll do last September's.
From September 2, 2005
1. Are you a frequent mover, or do you prefer to stay put?
Part of living in Bloomington is the joy of moving pretty much every year, or else face a hike in rental costs. Hopefully I'm past that now. In the past five years, I have lived in seven different places: my parents' house, apartment #1, house #1, apartment #2, townhouse #1, apartment #3, and house #2. I hate moving, and I would prefer not to do it again for a loooong time.
2. If given the choice, which would you prefer: big house and long commute, or small house and short commute?
It would be more economical to have a small house and short commute, so I'd probably choose that. But not having enough space drives me insane.
3. Do you prefer to do your own repairs and decorating, or hire a professional?
Shit, I'm poor. I'll do it myself or call Manny's brother, who can fix pretty much anything.
4. Do you prefer a big open living area, or a cozy space?
I prefer a big, open living area. In my ideal setting, it would include a loft with lots of windows.
5. What features are important to you in a home (state-of-the-art kitchen, fireplace, screened-in porch, etc.)?
My ideal house would be older, with wood floors, a sun room with lots of windows for my piano, a kitchen with a window over the sink (to look out while I do dishes), a fireplace, a basement for Manny to retreat to (he is not a fan of light), lots of little nooks and crannies, a loft, and a spooky attic. And trees, lots of trees outside.
My current house is nothing like this. But it's still a good house.
