Looks like fridayfive.org is taking the week off, so here’s a random selection from their archives (February 21, 2003):
1. What is your most prized material possession?
Either my computer or my car. The computer because of the time invested into it…the car due to the money.
2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest?
Well, I’m wearing a polo shirt that dates at least to freshman year of college today. Electronic stuff…the TV is 5 years old…my car is 3 years old, my computer is 2 years old.
3. Are you a packrat?
In some ways yes…but it’s usually out of laziness than being a packrat.
4. Do you prefer a spic-and-span clean house? Or is some clutter necessary to avoid the appearance of a museum?
I prefer a little bit. But, sometimes I’m not too motivated, and I end up with more than a little clutter.
5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knick-knacks here and there?
Well, because I’m in a temporary apartment, it’s a mix of the stuff that was there and my things. I like a mix of classic (hardwood floors, club-style leather sofas, Oriental rugs) and modern (as in not too frilly-looking stuff – Mission-style furniture is what I’d prefer).
