exposing my apartment again

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Actually this really didn't start out with the intention to be another "Exposing Myself" post, at least not on this scale anyway... I just wanted to show off the placement of my Ticky Tack painting now that it's up on the wall...

But the last time I did this was September 2006, so there have been at least two "post-Christmas major change-arounds" since then... okay, major is perhaps not the right word... it's not like I can move any of my big furniture around... it's like jigsaw puzzle pieces... no matter how you try and squish it in a spot, it will all really only go together properly in one configuration...

But I changed some stuff around after Christmas 2006... and again this year... as well as the fact that all my tchotchka got taken down and dusted and rearranged this year. And I also put up my new cheap Ikea star lights in place of the pre-existing fairly lights (actually the set I took down was a different set from the ones in the original photo... same principle though).

There's also one of my first attempts at painting, Safari, down at the bottom of the bookcase, and I haven't actually noticed since I changed the lights over, but it used to look really groovy when the fairy lights were lit, because they fell behind it, and it would kind of glow from within.

I'm thinking about maybe doing a revisit of my DVD collection once I get back the ones that Ma borrowed on the weekend... especially now that the collection is spread across three cabinets (well, four technically, but three together in one spot)... we'll see I guess...

The painting looks really good! :)

It would annoy the crap out of me that neither it nor the tv are centred though! ;)

Oh, and nice hat! Do you wear it?

Interestingly it all looks more out of whack in the photo than it does in reality... it's probably not perfectly centred (but then I'm not Eddie), but then it can't be because I have to have room for my stereo on one side... but the photo does make it look a little wonky.

And yes, I do wear the hat... for now anyway, since the straw that it's made from is breaking in spots. But I figure I'll keep wearing it until it's unwearable, since I don't normally do hats very well, and I like that one. :)

Hey is that my Sony TV? Damn you have got an investment in DVDs. I told myself I would never accumulate as many as I did in VHS tapes. I've done pretty good with only about 20. I hope the shelves are attached to the wall. Looks cool and comfy.

No actually, that's my LG TV... :P

And yes... My name's Yani, and I'm a DVDaholic...

I went way past my collection of VHS tapes some time ago I think. I have been looking at the whole collection lately and just shaking my head at myself... it's a little out of control I think.

And no, nothing is attached to the walls, but it's all pretty stable *touch wood* ;)
