the house meme

1. When you walk in your front door, which room do you enter?The office/living room combo. There’s the feel of a foyer sort of because the side of my desk and the back of the couch make a divider.

2. Do you have a dishwasher?


3. Is your living room carpeted or does it have hardwood floor?
It’s very icky ancient carpet. Awful tan/bown color. Thankfully, most of the house is hardwood flooring.
4. Do you keep your kitchen knives on the counter or in a drawer?

There’s a set of steak knives on the counter and the rest hang on a big magnet thingy.5. House, apartment, duplex or trailer?House. Split-level. Multicolored brick and white vinyl siding.

Three. Bu & me, Molly & me, and the studio.

7. Gas stove or electric?

Electric. Blech.

8. How big is the yard?

I think it’s three lots. Pretty big.

9. What size TV is in the living room?

I don’t know, medium?

10. Are your plates in the same cupboard as your cups?


11. Is there a coffee maker sitting on your kitchen counter?

Yes. And a tea kettle perpetually lives on the stovetop.

12. What color is your home painted?

The trim and the deck are maroon. I want to repaint them green.

13. What room is your computer in?

Office/living room.

14. Are there pictures hanging in your living room?

There’s a group of mismatched frames with family photos.

15.) Are there any themes found in your home?

Sorta. The dining room used to have a celestial thing going on with sun and moon images, but now they’re scattered through the house. I got a beautiful sunburst mirror from my brother for Christmas, though, so I think I’ll rework the sun motif.The bathroom has an Eastern groove, with a Shiva thing, a reproduction of a Chinese painting of a concubine holding her baby to pee (I love that piece!) and a kind of Indian looking pendant off of a broken necklace that was my mom’s, a little Indian mirror.

 I want to go retro 60’s funk with the living room, because I decided that there is just no fighting the vibeJ My house is very Brady Bunch.16. What kind of laundry detergent do you use?

It’s some generic, chemical laden stuff I steal from Mamaw’s stash from Sam’s Club. I can’t stress how poor we are. I’d love to buy better stuff, earth-wise.

20. Is your house clean?

Not so much. Better than usual, though.

The studio.

Sink: dirty.
Dishwasher: clean, need to be putting them away, but her I sit, fucking offJ23. How long have you lived in your home?

Hell no.26. Do you have a scale anywhere in your home?

Yes, in the bathroom.

27. How many mirrors are in your house?

A lot; don’t feel like counting. Have a few little decorative cute ones.

28. Look up. What do you see?

A horrid drop-ceiling with gross tiles that is the bane of my existence.

A car port. It’s still full of Bu’s grandfather’s crap.

No, but I would love to.
