I was wondering...
do you have a favorite wall paper pattern
what is your favorite light bulb
when did you first fall in love
I am very fond of black and white stripes. It is my dream, one day, to have a living room that is entirely black and white. Perhaps with an occasional red accent here or there.
As for light bulbs I'll go for anything bright, fluorescents these days. Both my parents have some strange addiction to low watt light bulbs, 60 or bellow. While I appreciate that a 100 watt bulb is bad for the environment, I enjoy seeing what I am doing. I write, read, and sew and I'm unwilling to torture my eyes with dimness while pursuing these activities. Good lighting is not an option, it is a moral and physical imperative.
I have loved quite deeply, but being in love came late to me. It's mainly terrifying in my opinion. I don't like being responsible for another person's emotional well being. I got over it eventually.

Quote of the Day:
"But perhaps there is nothing more convenient that the ordinary indiarubber air cushion, which has the advantage of all others in point of portability, since, when emptied, it lies flat in an infinitesimal space, or will roll up into an ulster pocket, while a few seconds serves to convert it into a plump but yielding support."
~ Lillias Campbell Davidson, Hints to Lady Travellers, 1889
