Is She Always This Animated? Yes, Yes I am.

Three days ago, I convinced the beau that we should move. I was having one of those moments where I was a little bored and then I checked my savings account and realized that um, $37 was not a saving account (only a slight exaggeration).

It then occurred to me that we do not use 2 of the rooms in our apartment. This place is freaking huge. I know, poor me, my apartment is just too big. Anyone who has ever lived in Manhattan just virtually slapped me. I deserved it. 

We have a two bedroom apartment with a full office and an enormous dining room. We do not dine. When I hand Nav his dinner plate it’s usually followed by “what are we watching?” I’ve shown you before, our dining room table generally is known as “Nadine’s office.”

So we put our apartment on Craigslist and will be moving to a smaller and cheaper place. And many a stranger have now walked through. 

Showing your apartment to strangers is always a weird thing. Not only is there the Craigslist factor of this-person-could-murder-me or be plotting to steal our flat screen. But it’s just odd to have someone all up in your private business. 

The following hilarity has ensued:

               Apartment hunter to Naveed: “Is she always this animated?”

               Naveed: “Uh this is probably the toned down version.”

               Apartment hunter to me: “I’d like to see you after a glass of wine.”

You aren’t the only one, lady. I’ll take that as a compliment. Cheers.

And as we’ve invited these strangers into our home, I’ve realized the following:

1. My interior decorating style is the same as my fashion sense. Comfort > Looks. Hell to the yeah we have a big ugly recliner. And it’s so comfortable that I basically live in it. No shame. Where do you think I’m sitting in the above picture?

2. I cannot clean up after myself. Neither can Naveed. It’s not like we didn’t know that already, it’s just that I had no idea how hard it would be to keep the house clean between a 5pm appointment and an 8pm. We cannot do it. Cue oh-my-god-they’re-here dash to throw everything in the closet.

3. Not everyone thinks it’s super awesome that I have a framed replica Harry Potter wand on my wall. Those people suck.

4. Our apartment maybe smells a little bit like dog smothered in yankee candle. 

I don’t care about the smell because Archie gives me an excuse to wear a fanny pack. Plus he gives good hugs.

5. Last and most importantly, I cannot contain the real version of me. What I think generally flies out of my mouth. I’m a little too loud and I’m never afraid to drop the line I always think is hilarious — that’s what she said. 
Note to self: Not appropriate in all social situations.
