Instead, let's talk about my apartment. I've never met the woman I'm subletting from, and though I know a bit about her, her place has me speculating about her life, her personality, and so much more.
Wanna play along?
Her bed consistes of a boxspring and mattress set on the floor (no bedframe).Now~~you tell me the rest!
The artwork on her walls includes a print of Klimt's "The Kiss" and some small, framed Chinese and Japanese landscapes.
Her dishes are mismatched, but she has a complete spice rack, four china teapots, a coffee grinder, a French press and a stovetop espresso maker.
She does not appear to own a corkscrew.
She has a decorative basket, enlaced with ribbons, full of condoms (of several different brands, in singles or pairs).
In a visible location in her living room are Cranium and Boggle.
She has at least ten votive and other candles on surfaces throughout the apartment.
There is one plant (small, but healthy).
Her bookshelf contains--in addition to works related to her field/profession--a mix of relatively literary popular fiction (Barbara Kingsolver, Alice Sebold), Harry Potter and other fantasy-/sci-fi-type books (Anne Rice, Philip Pullman, Orson Scott Card), thrillers (Robert Ludlum and Michael Crichton), along with Anne of Green Gables, The Far Side Gallery, and a whole bunch of Steinbeck.
The place was left very tidy, with plenty of space for me in cabinets and closets, and a long, helpful note on the kitchen table.
She owns only a handful of movies, but among them are Pirates of the Caribbean, Hollywoodland, Star Wars, Braveheart, and Step Up.
