Week One

We've just spent the first week living in Pete's newly rented apartment. He has nothing there. Correction - Apart from his beloved fish tank. There is nothing there.

No Fridge
No Washing Machine
No T.V.
No Microwave
No ADSL Speed Internet

Are there any other necessities in life ?!

My three necessities would be :

1) Fridge - No Fridge means that there is no...

  • Icy cold beer - need I say more ?
  • Icy cold water - a must-have during summer in Sydney
  • Ice cubes - for Baileys & vodka drinks etc...
  • Ice cream
  • Milk - No milk = No Crunchy Nut Cereal
  • No Cooking at home (although.. I think I can live without this)

2) Washing Machine - The apartment is no where near a dry cleaner. I can hand-wash some clothes, but jeans are out of the question. Therefore, this is one of my necessities . I think even with a dry cleaner downstairs, it would gradually become too expensive in the long-term. My boyfriend however, is one of those people who never sees the need to wash his jeans. And I mean 'never' ever. He thinks that his jeans get ruined if he washes them.

It's only the first week. I am still waiting to see how long his supply of undies\jocks is going to last him. If I find out he is turning them upside-down and 're-wearing' them. I'll burn them.

Under no condition would I be hand-washing those.

3) ADSL Speed Internet - No sure if this is a good thing or not. But living in a place without Broadband access is actually curing me of my addiction to World of Warcraft (WoW). But give me another week of this and I will seriously go mad.

I have Dialup Internet access. But using that just makes me more frustrated. I rather just forget I have access to the Online world.

Oh, and the T.V. Now that I think about it, it'll be nice with one, but with the Internet available, T.V. is no longer one of the top 3 items on my necessity list.

So for the past couple days, I will sit at the dining table (the only furniture available) and do my jigsaw puzzle. I haven't done one in years, but then what else can I do ?!

While he would sit on the floor (we have no sofa) staring at his fish tank.

Why are guys so obsessed about fish ?!

Hehehe... I don't think you have to worry about the clean undies/boxers part for Pete :P *grin*

And if you are seriously desprate for some internet connection, I'm sure there are a few wireless connection around that you can "borrow" for now :P
