A chasing after the wind

1. What is your most prized material possession?
Probably my computer and digital camera (can't have one without the other really :) )

2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest?
Yikes I've had *stacks* of stuff since I was a kid. Although one of my earliest memories is getting my bed, which I still sleep in

3. Are you 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 like a clean house, and I like to be free of clutter. But I'm also a hoarder, so I have to think up creative storage solutions :)

5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knick-knacks here and there?
No themes. I was thinking the other day it'd be cool to have a space lego room, but this unit is just far to small for that sort of thing. Mind you, my lounge room is basically just a widened hallway. All I have in it is a little couch and a small table. So technically I would have the room

It's kind of ironic that this friday five is about material possessions - I've been reading Ecclesiastes. Strange little book of the Bible that's for sure, I still don't understand it. "Meaningless, a chasing after the wind!"

I'm going to go on an aquarium crawl tomorrow, to look for a shipwreck to decorate my tank, and maybe some fish.. *maybe*. While I'm out I might also have a look around for a DVD player. It's getting about time that I get one (my Dad is looking at getting one also, and it'd be a bit tragic if he got one before me :) )

Looking forward to a full two day weekend this weekend. One day weekends (as per last weekend) totally suck. I reckon we should have three day weekends every week.. just a thought :)

Ya know, I owned a DVD player way back when finding DVD's for rent was darn near impossible, the big chain video rental stores only carried a few titles. Now my mother has one. And it's better than mine! *hangs head in shame*

However, if you really like the cinematic experience, (including big sound) DVD does rock. I'd rather wait for it to come out on DVD and watch it in my clean living room in my underwear with a pause and rewind button. Heck, half the time I just buy the movie if I think I'll like it, twenty bucks buys you a night out with popcorn, never to see the movie again, or the whole movie, a night in, and trading rights with the rest of the DVD enabled family. I think that's where the real fun comes in, trading owned movies about with your loved ones.

I actually went and bought myself a dvd player today. The craziest part about it was I'd been talking to my dad this morning and we were discussing models but he indicated that because mum wasn't all that interested he wasn't in any hurry to get one. Then I get home and my brother tells me he went and got one today too! Spooky or what!? :)

Yes the whole trade with friends/family idea is rather appealing. My brother has been collecting them for years, and friends of mine have upwards of 200 dvds .. I'm hoping they'll be ammenable to lending me some from time to time ;)
