The house in a pretty sorry state of mess, which isn’t a surprise. After all, we’ve moved…but we’re far from being settled it. There is just so much to move, so much to clean and so much to unpack. When Mel said it wouldn’t be easy, she was damn right. Even with only 3 suitcases and 2 boxes to contend with, it feels like I’ve gone on a marathon, lost, and had angry fans beat me up. Maybe in retrospect, stopping Mel from proving her own macho shit wasn’t such a good idea.
Anyway,being that it was late in the night, we just had enough time to snap a couple of shots. So to those that would be hardpressed to attend our housewarming party sooner or later, here are some pictures to make the world go round.
Why is it every Australian house has some long narrow hallway? I think I saw this scene in a horror movie more than a few times, right before someone gets horribly killed.
The blue room. Biggest bedroom in the house. Also where we threw in all our stuff before rearranging everything.
The yellow room. Mel’s room. Take note that the penguin is NOT doing anything to the bear underneath him. Anything you see is also not admissible in a court of law.
The green room. The smallest room. My room. Got to love the acoustics of an empty room. Too bad I didn’t bring my guitar.
Now this is why I picked the smallest room. Watch closely. Now you see nothing…
…now you see a secret compartment. Pretty cool and dry inside to boot. Perfect for hiding all sorts of valuble things from people…like alcohol or porn. I just got to remember to clean it up first. Wouldn’t want the spiders or other creepy crawlies getting at my stash of alcohol.
The question that’s really going to hit my noodle later on is…why does he have 2 DVD players with him to begin with?
Either Siew Mao (Translated from Cantonese means Small Cat) lost something in there, or we forgot to put water in his bowl.
The long story short is that anyone looking through the window can basically see the person inside taking a shower. Rather than deprive them of their compulsions and giving us some privacy, we blocked the window off with that poster. It’s a win-win situation either way.
Something tells me I’m going to love this yard in the evenings. We even got a
whipping shed even. Interesting.
The other reason why I love the yard, however…taking pictures at stars on a camera without proper settings at night will do you no more good than taking pictures with the lens on. So just to give you an idea. That was supposed to be the Milky Way I took a picture off. Not just random bright stars. The freaking Milky Way complete with itty bitty star clusters.
No house is incomplete without a toilet…outside the house. At least we don’t have to wait to go when someone else is in the bathroom…or when the cat needs a drink.
For Albert, this is one road your grandchidren are going to love you for.
“You looking at me? Why you looking at me?”
Definitely love the cat the most. It’s a nice pussy to stroke.
This series of pictures is brought to you by the house that has no Black Metal. We don’t have goats except when we decide to have ourselves a barbeque.
After taking these pictures, I just realized one thing. I don’t have a picture of the entire house especially the best part of the house. Then again, it would be hard pressed to take a picture of the house when it’s pitch black outside. I’m sure I can dig something up sometime, but for now, enjoy…because we’ve still got a lot more to do…and all you get to do is sit back and oogle at the poster outside that bathroom window.
