YAY!!! I received my laundry machine / drier this morning, my life will never be the same !!! No more hanging around boring laundromats, no more "damnit it's monday morning, I forgot to go to the laundromat and I got nothing to wear". HAHAHAHA.
This, of course, may surprise the most equiped of you. I must admit that I'm completely underequiped, not having even enough furniture to fill my apartment. I spent the better part of the past seven years (when I left my parents' place) moving between countries and continents, and/or being broke because I was trying to get my company off the ground. Whatever I acquired, I had to sell at some point either because it wasn't worth moving accross oceans, or because I needed money to pay the rent (once I even had to sell most of my book collection -- which included a fair number of out-of-print philosophy and poetry books -- keeping only a few ones that were very dear to me just to avoid being kicked out on the street, something which remains a rather painful memory). Having to buy a third of the company didn't help much either last year.
So the end produce of this is that I have pretty much nothing. The very minimum required to cook, a fridge, a stereo, basic furniture, and now a washer/drier (thanks to my parents' good sense of practical imagination last xmas) !!! Now if that isn't a massive improvement to my lifestyle, I don't know what is
