Household meme, taken from [livejournal.com profile] winterlive and elsewhere. Behold my generic domesticity!


1. What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now?
Everything from Jonah's Johnson & Johnson to the Lush I splurged on in Arizona

2. Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?
Watermelon was so last week. This week is blackberries and red grapes.

3. Is there anything moldy in your refrigerator?
No because the men in my life eat me out of house and home.

4. What would you change about your living room?
Make it larger, replace the media center, put the printer I moved in for "just a sec" back to the office space.

5. Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?
It's 2012 and I have no dishwasher. Hands only, baby. I'm soaking in it.

6. Do you have a can of mushrooms in your pantry?
Mushrooms should only be fresh and they should only be exotic.

7. White or wheat/brown bread?
Wheat or pumpernickel

8. What is on top of your refrigerator?
A punch bowl. Cereal. Straws. Leftover birthday napkins.

9. What color is your sofa?
Champagne and dark red muted print.

10. What color or design is on your shower curtain?
White with white applique.

11. How many plants are in your home?
Two, both from my dad's memorial service. Still thriving, shockingly.

12. How many candles are in your home?
Zero decorative, a few tapers in a drawer for power outages.

13. Is your bed made right now?
No, because Caza was home and we napped today (not a euphemism).

14. If you have a coffee pot, what color is it?
Black and shiny because it's new.

15. Electric or standard can opener?
Both and I can barely work either.

16. Comet or Soft Scrub?
Comet.

17. Is your closet organized?
Jonah's is downright regimented. My shoes are organized (the fancy ones are in boxes) but I've got skorts mixed with tops and I don't care!

18. What color is the flashlight that you use the most?
Yellow? I think? I rarely do (and when I do, I always think, "In England they call it a torch!").

19. What kinds of things are in your junk drawer?
Coupons, notepads, string, scissors, a Snow-Man kit that I got from Pottery Barn and never used, glitter.

20. Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
Plastic. I have a china cabinet full of my mother's crystal, and I prefer to drink out of Eskimo Joe's and Irma's Burger Shack cups.

21. Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now?
Yes. I think it's in the Oklahoma housing code.

22. If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
I am married to a whirlwind of organization. Holiday ornaments neatly boxed and labeled, empty boxes nested, lawn mower just so.

23. Curtains or blinds?
Drapes, blinds and Roman shades.

24. How many pillows do you sleep with?
Two (but there are 7 when the bed is neatly made).

25. Do you sleep with any lights on at night?
Not in our room, but the bathroom light is left on for the 4 year old.

2, both bedrooms.

27. How often do you vacuum?
Hardwood floors, whee!

28. What color is your toothbrush?
Purple glitter

29. Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch?
A rubber mat topped with last year's JOY holiday mat. Sigh. Yes, I know.

30. What is in your oven right now?
Oven cleaner. I made brownies yesterday, not realizing Caza had a frozen pizza incident.

31. Is your microwave clean or dirty?
Clean -- I do that Martha Stewart thing with lemons.

32. Is there anything under your bed?
A dachshund and a German Shepherd/Lab mix. It's their spot.

33. Chore you hate doing the most?
Washing dishes (see above re: dishwasher and lack thereof).

34. What retro items are in your home?
Antique dresser, wash stand and china cabinet.

35. Do you have a separate room that you use as an office?
Alcove off the bedroom.

36. If you have a yard, who mows it?
My husband because I have been working the grass allergy I grew out of at 15 for years.

37. Is there anything on your kitchen floor right now?
Probably dirty footprints; my kid was outside earlier.

None

42. Do you have a peephole in your front door?
Yes, but I think it's warped.

43. Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home?
No, and considering I live in Oklahoma: marvel. Oh, wait, Jonah has the sword/mace/axe weapons set from "Brave" -- that mace will at least dent your hairdo.

44. What does your home smell like right now?
Jonah's Disney Princess bubble bath

45. Favorite candle scent?
I sometimes get Christmas cookie scented ones in December. I'm not a big scented candle person.

46. What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now?
Dill spears, spicy bread'n'butter, homemade salt pickles from my hometown.

47. Who are in the pictures you displayed?
Several pictures of Jonah scattered discreetly (I hope) throughout the house. Living room has a collage of our Disney trip. There's still a framed Buffy photo-shoot, a Spike/Angel promo pic and a poster-sized Season 8 comic cover with Buffy and Xander in my "office."

48. What color is your favorite bible?
We have many, many bibles, and my favorite is my grandmother's but I have no idea what color it is. Leather something?

49. Do you have plenty of cabinet space in your kitchen?
Who does?

Nope, nope, nope, not happening.

Nope. Just mp3 now.

52. How many TVs do you have?
Two

53. How many house phones?
Just cells.

54. Do you have a housekeeper?
I'm a stay-at-home mom in the millennium who isn't independently wealthy. So no.

Eclectic nostalgia

Both.

Arctic with me snuggled under a blanket.

So this is fun! I immediately started counting the types of pickles I have, too.

AND YES TO ARCTIC WITH BLANKETS. Oh, I want cold weather to come and stay put for a spell...

PICKLES (paper towel optional).

This is why I always slept well at your house. Ugh, too warm houses, ugh.
