So Josh was bitching the other day about how he hasn't seen any pics of the new house - only the previous pics of the hideous temporary house we were assigned (a temporary house that was not, by the way, built lovingly by USG contractors with asbestos).
Okay, so maybe he wasn't bitching so much as I was bitching at him that he hadn't even NOTICED that I haven't posted the pics of the house.
How can the man not focus on the importance of this issue?!?
So anyway, since he said, "Yeah, whatever," I take that to mean he is eagerly awaiting some photos of the new asbestos ridden death house in which I currently live... (I previously posted pics of the other house when I first got here back in March, but don't know how -- and am obviously too lazy even if I DID know how -- to link back to them. Do your own work.)
The Kitchen -- I know! Pretty bleak!! However, notice how the stove is no longer circa 1957! We have totally graduated to what I believe is fall, 1989. There is also no hideous puke green tile that is falling off the walls. Although downside is that Joe (the gecko) didn't bother to move to the new place. (I may go back and get him though - he's kinda creepy, but I hate spiders and bugs even more.)
Living Room and Dining Room -- I've yet to use either of these locations. Although there IS a TV, I haven't bothered to have it hooked up yet (that is clearly a boy job) and we don't have any household effects yet (I believe they are being held hostage in Port Sudan), so we're currently living off of welcome kit dishes. However, there is NO bar ware! I am being forced to drink any wine I can get my hands on out of plastic cups.
Also, notice the 1981 off white lamps with the spanking new sparkling white shades. Nicely done GSO.
The office where I spend MOST of my time when I am home (blogging and commenting -- my life's work).
Yes, I did choose that color, and yes, I do remember the treadmill room in our house back in DC that I thought would be this beautiful burnt pumpkin color and how I did all the internet research about how shades of orange allegedly give you energy and I figured that would make me run more, but when we actually painted the room, it was pretty much the color of a traffic cone. But this was yellow.
That's totally different.
This is our room; although it should be noted that those are my closets and I've pretty much filled up all the dresser space. However, I'm not a monster!! I saved you some room in the guest room!!!
SEE!? that dresser (the small one there) is totally yours. There is also one closet in there; although I have been putting my new shoes and some of my "winter" clothes in there. Turns out you were right babe. I don't actually need winter clothes in Sudan. However, it is obviously very important to be prepared.
Therefore, you should be prepared and probably plan on building yourself a new closet. I'm just saying, by November??? Shit happens.
And finally, these are the stairs that one would assume go up to the third floor, but in reality end in a door that pretty much goes out to the roof where we keep the pile of bricks and big sand dunes. I'm not sure why we are keeping those things, but clearly, they are necessary or GSO wouldn't have left them there, right?
All I'm saying is, I'm totally not sweeping that shit. I'm just going to save that for later.
And by "later," I mean when you get here.
See how considerate I am?? Love ya!
Sometimes? I'm Judgmental. Also, Seattle!
