random meme about the home

cuz i'm burning millions (or just 41) copies of a dvd slide show i've made for the kids as part of their end of year gift from us and i need something to do on the computer while i'm doing this i'm gonna do this meme:

What kind of soap is in your bathtub?
right now i think its mango. or maybe strawberry. i buy it 5 bars at a time and never pick 2 the same cuz there's so many good scents.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?

What would you change about your living room?
add air conditioning. and get rid of the brown carpet. and all the clutter. and make the window on the west side open-able.

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?
we don't have a dishwasher. there's only a couple dirty dishes in the kitchen though.

What is in your refrigerator?
a few different kinds of dip (hommus, red capsicum and a vegan veggie dip thing), lots of chocolate and a few wilting veggies.

White or wheat bread?
wheat (especially ones with lots of seeds in them)

What is on top of your refrigerator?
a lot of dust, a casserole dish, stubby holders, a big bowl. maybe a cereal box too(?)

What is the pattern on your shower curtain (or is it plain)?
i just bought a new one-- white with a pattern of what looks like water drops all over it (i had to get rid of the blue one with penguins all over cuz half the design had come off)

How many plants are in your home?
1. its not doing too well but its alive. its a bamboo plant so it shouldn't take too much nurturing to keep it going.

Is your bed made right now?

Comet or Soft Scrub?
neither. an environmentally friendly, vegan disinfectant and baking soda if i need something to scrub with.

Is your closet organized?
a bit. clothes that can hang are hanging (mostly). shoes on the bottom. junk on top of them. things i don't ever wear but think i might thrown in the top part that i can't see into/reach unless i stand on a milk crate.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
both. used to be plastic but starting to do more glass.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now?
i don't even think you can buy powdered iced tea in australia and only once have i actually gone to the effort to make iced tea from scratch (even though i love it)

If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
no garage. if i had one it would be cluttered though.

Curtains or blinds?
do i have them? which do i prefer? i have those pull down blinds but in the bedroom we have added a thin white see-thru-ish curtain so the neighbours can't see in during the day when the blinds are open (the almost directly face each other about 2m apart) and then we added a big sheet so we can have the window open all nite and the wind doesn't make the wooden part of the blinds bang on the window sill cuz we leave the blinds up now and just use the sheet as a blind.

How many pillows do you sleep with?

Do you sleep with any lights on at night?
it has to be fairly dark but i do have the green glow from my stereo on for an hour while relaxing music plays.

How often do you vacuum?
once a week. more if the dog is shedding lots

Standard toothbrush or electric?
both. electric when i actually have a battery in it. standard most of the time.

What color is your toothbrush?
either green or purple. i can't remember (i just grab it)

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch?
yep. with big scary looking dogs on it 8) zac bought it last week.

What is in your oven right now?

Is there anything under your bed?
1 small little box (there was about 10 times that amount of stuff and a HUGE amount of dust but that all got cleaned out when we steam cleaned the carpets last week. now it all lives in zacs part of the closet-- he hasn't realized this yet)

Chore you hate doing the most?
washing the dishes. and cleaning the bathtub but zac does that for me.

What retro items are in your home?
i'm not sure.......maybe a few fabric scraps i've scavenged from work but nothing that i can't think of right now.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office?
nope. the spare room is the music/junk room. the computer lives in the lounge room.

How many mirrors are in your home?
2 2/3. 2 in the bathroom and 2/3 of a mirror in the bedroom

What color are your walls?
cream. very boring cream.

Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home?
wombat. not sure how much she'd protect us. i think she'd use her deep bark til the person was inside and then just jump up on them looking for pats and treats.

What does your home smell like right now?
vanilla-y from my oil burner.

Favorite candle scent?
oceanus. vanilla. cinnamon. citrus. depends on the time of year.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now?

the only one i have now is maroon.

How many TVs do you have?
1. and 1 4" black and white portable one that we never use. and one other random one that we wanna get rid of. so 3 i guess. we only use 1
