That would not compel me to buy it... in fact, I'd probably walk away from it even more quickly than before. :D

Hmmm... I just realised i could probably use my art skills (which basically amount to being good at creating things in photoshop which look cool) could be useful to make tie designs.

Ya, I don't know if you can see in that same picture is frame containing 3 smaller pictures, the top one of which is my buddies grandfather in law and I duking it at at the wedding. He made some 200 bottles of red and 200 white wine for this wedding of which about 80 got drunk (and I do much DRUNK). So we've got bottles of wine littered around the house (I live with them.. silly newlyweds).

It's 5:30am and I can't sleep, MAYBE I'LL HAVE A BOTTLE

ok now it is my turn.
First ther is a bad. On the wardrobe you can see something laughing. That is my light house. In dark the eyes glow so i can orientate. Here is winter (quasi) It is around freezing point in the out side and i sleep with my window open (thats why the xxl heavy duty ugly looking blanket ). And ah ok the picture:
Image

Lets move on people!
SEcond pictures shows the majority of my room. When i wake up this is what i see. I have only one poster in my room and only one alive plant, which is quite old now. Beside alive i have a few dried out flowers (Alpium eringium and a rose).
Yes yes i almost forgot:
Image

And drovers with bookshelf and a lot of really useful stuff like towel's and of course my guitar.

I just like to sleep in a very cold room with my nose freezing. you can be covered with tones of blankets and enjoy the worm feeling and the weight of all the blankets... #eyes closing wondering "this could be my happy place"
There is but one downside to cold room. Mornings. It is so hard to stand up from bed into this cruel cold room (makes me wanna cry)...

I can not sleep in worm room. Ok i prefer not sleeping in one; Actually i like coolness! The only hot thing i like, besides coffee, are showers, best in combination with really cold ones...

I love leaving the window open for a few hours before I go to bed, then close it, so when I am going to sleep it is cold, but when I wake up it's hot!

Yeah, I sleep with my fan on for the noise and for the cold, circulating air. :)

I'd sleep with the window open, but I don't have a screen on it, and that causes inconvenience during the summer when I don't like mosquitoes. :)

I like the rugs.

They make me wish that I had an uncarpeted room besides my kitchen and bathroom, which are not good places for a good rug.

I may have to spend much of tomorrow cleaning my room, in order to post a picture, which will then make the pictures of 'messy' rooms look neat in comparison.

Really, the only way for me to have a clean room will be to move to another house. Which I will soon be doing, so any pictures of my room that I post will quickly obsolesce. In fact, I should almost start packing as I clean my room.

Here we go, it's a huge mess, but here it is.

Image

Firstly, we have my gaming rig set up on my desk(I'll get to why it's sideways in a minute) with my Lava lamp and Murphy's Law Daily Calender in the corner. Oh, and my wallet is the thing covered in Duct Tape.

Image

Next up is my TV, PS2(with most of my games beneath it) and my Guitar Hero controller in the shot too. Oh, and for those wondering, that device sitting on my TV is an anciant device called "Rabbit Ears" which pick up some TV signals.

Image

And here is the reason that my comp is sideways, it's so I can pick up a semi-decent signal from my Router, which is on the exact opposite side of my house. You can also see where I store most of my Soda cans before I recycle them, and some of my season DVD's(I have others, they are just lost or on loan right now). Oh, and you can also see my awesome sterio which hasn't worked in over a year, yay.

Image

And here is the last point of my room, my two classic Dr. Who posters.

My room is not much to look at, and is kindof messy right now. I may post before-and-after pictures when I get to cleaning it up.

But right now, these are the parts I'm most happy with, which I just hung up:

Image

I am also happy with the bed, it is a very good change from sleeping on dorm beds or air mattresses. It is large and comfy and does not hurt my back.

And now for extreme close-up...

Image

I am pleased.

Mine is suitably messy, but not as embarrassing as it could be, since I just shoved everything in my closet/cedar chest.

Bed Room

I can't get a good picture of the bedroom right now as I don't have a wide enough lens. When I get $700 to blow...
