Burnt Regrets

Remember this prompt, when your home was on fire and you got to save five items? That means you left a lot of stuff behind. What are the things you wish you could have taken, but had to leave behind?

Ok, so I don’t think I’ve ever done a follow up prompt before and certainly not on the same day but that’s ok. It’s a good prompt.

So the things that I would miss and wish I could have taken behind would be

  • the furniture and especially my computer desk. There’s no way the built-ins could have been saved but the rest is salvageable.
  • My collection of cds & dvds. I have almost everything backed up into several hard drives but I will certainly miss the packaging and art work.
  • the television, cable tv and dvd player – notice I did not save those? That’s because I rarely do watch the flat screen tv in the living room and watch most of my shows on dvds or downloads. But the big flat screen is nice to have.
  • Bathrooms – this might seem silly to you but once I get used to a toilet at my residence it is difficult and time-consuming to get that same level of comfort in another loo. It’s just not the same to poop in an stranger’s toilet!
  • My bed – comfort is relative to familiarity for me!

That’s it I guess.

Burning Down The House

Your home is on fire. Grab five items (assume all people and animals are safe). What did you grab?

Hmmm, I think I’ve written a couple of posts similar to this one months ago but I’ll give it a go:

  • My laptop – first and foremost. Although I have back up, I still need this lappy of mine. Although I am looking to get a new one in the next couple of months.
  • Some clothes – what the fuck am I gonna wear?
  • Medicine kit.
  • Books – a few to read while I get my home situation back in order
  • My phone
