Does assorted leftover foreign currency count?

Uh, no bible.  As Hyde (T7S) says: “Although I respect the Judeo-Christian ethic, as well as the Eastern philosophies, and of course the teachings of Muhammad, I find that organized religion has corrupted those beliefs to justify countless atrocities throughout the ages. Were I to go to church, I'd be a hypocrite.

No, everything falls out when I open a cabinet door!

Just started last week! A once-a-week cleaner. Thank god.

Minimalist but comfy for now.

Solid colors.

Um no, death trap or what!

My passport so I can get the hell out of the country. Officer, honestly, I swear I didn’t start the fire.  *bats eyelashes as she reaches behind her for the bat*


62. Do you know how to work your electrical box?
Yes, if all I need to do is flip the breakers.


63. What temperature in your home is most comfortable to you?
18-23 oC.  It’s stay-in-bed, or on the couch with a blanket temp.   Purrrrr-fect!
