Play room












If I had to throw away all bar one the PC would have to stay.

i am sufficiently jealous.

Perfect Virgo said...

Transience - Long ago in a far away land it all went down my neck, now at least I have some toys to show for it. I think this is ample sufficiency!

Kimberly said...

ooooooo..lots of goodies!
I like the mousepad;-)

an alien on the desk....hmmm...i was noticing all the litte things, all the detail...my mum has that mouspad, i just remembered...

tonnes of cds...wow.

when i seen the headphones i thought of seeing you sitting there with them on your head...im weird like that.

I would have to say the pc too coz there is so much more you can do with it to occupy your time....a few minutes ago i thought mine was on its last leg....i was mortified...but i got it back as you can see:)

these pictures say so much about you...very very cool

Kimberly said...

oh yeah.....i remembered seeing scrabble as well....and you must of been drinking tea or coffee yeah?

Perfect Virgo said...

Kimberly - sometimes pictures speak louder than words. I wonder what these say about me? Cool you think... The 4th pic down - on the window sill, see the little photo tree? There are pictures of the stunning villa we rented in Port Charlotte Florida on holiday last year.

The mouse mat was a souvenir I brought home from USA, the green post-it notes came from Wal Mart, the alien came from a novelty store in the UK and it was coffee in the mug! Hot, black and no sugar! Enough detail :)

I think I let slip I like music, the heaphones are beauties, a bit of a luxury really but useful for when the family doesn't want to listen at the same volume as me! (Scrabble was Matthew's favourite, now he's moved out we don't play it very often...

finnegan said...

all bar one? i notice you didn't include your new bike in the mix
wink wink.

Perfect Virgo said...

Finnegan - I would have had to stick by that statement but I've found an escape hatch... thank God my play room only holds electronic toys!

Kimberly said...

yes pv i did see the photo tree and i wondered what was on those pix, but i didnt bother to ask......i seen the post it notes but thought maybe that wasn't what i was seeing, and you got them at walmart? cool! everyone has to go there at least once in their lifetime....mmmmmmm.............coffee, which reminds me, my friend Kieran just booked his tickets today to come here from Sheffield....forgot to ask what he likes to drink!would be nice to have something on hand for him.

I haven't played scrabble in so long, since I was little. my boys play some games I had when I was a little girl and they love them ,and so do I...still

games like Parcheesi and Checkers and Uno

Kimberly said...

Also.....your left handed ;-) right?

Perfect Virgo said...

Kimberly - clicking on the pics makes them fill the screen. Still hard to make out the detail though. We love Wal Mart because there is nothing like it in the UK. I always stock up on all sorts of little nick-nacks there when on holiday.

Actuallty I am right-handed. I use the mouse left-handed because of chronic Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) in my right arm. For writing I mostly use Voice Recognition software. I've grown quite used to it and trained it with every swear word in the dictionary!

We like Uno too.

mussolini said...

i am GREEN. like kermit, except a lot prettier.

mussolini said...

omg you have like 7,000 dvds?!?

Perfect Virgo said...

Mussolini - I already guessed kermit would prove no contest! CDs in fact - I'm music through and through. And yes, into 4 figures..

I checked the links anyway, they are great. The beach is wow!

The Flea said...

You twisted virgo freak!! Where is the grime? The filth and detritus that gives things character?

I thought I was bad with my semi-ordered books and CDs, but that is like a museum; or a hospital cleansed of all human traces!

Don't get me wrong, you'd look at my overflowing ashtrays and the skidmarks in my toilet and be just as shocked as I am currently.

But then, I guess it's the diversity of us humans that makes us interesting.

Kimberly said...

uuhhmm...skid marks in toilets?
lol
somedays I wonder why I get on the internet...oh yeah thats right, coz you guys crack me up:)

Kimberly said...

Flea...you must of eaten one too many TimTams......I'm sure of it

Perfect Virgo said...

Flea - 'twisted virgo freak' shows you know your star-signs! Yep I love antisceptic cleanliness, military organistaion and show house tidiness. Welcome to the museum...

Desk drawers are full of household inventories, financial papers and the like - all in hanging files naturally! I like to think my PC file structure is an intricate work of art!!!!!

CDs are in alphabetical order by band, within that in chronological order of release date. I can put my finger on any one of the little rascals in 2 seconds flat! (They are of course all catalogued in an Excel spreadsheet.)

In my smoking days I emptied the ashtray after each smoke and washed the windows inside every week. Wow, guess I shocked you man!!

Kimberly - what do TimTams do to you, or need I ask?! Do excuse us blokes while we compare relative levels of untidiness, (guess I win that one though!)

Now you guys know way too much about me.

Kimberly said...

I am VERY asanine about cleanliness..my house hasto be free of any kind of dirt or dust...if it isn't, then I clean it, so PV I understand you all to well.....oh yeah and everything has a place, a proper place....everything has to be even, no lopsided pictures....if there is a salt shaker there better be a pepper grinder as well and they have to be evenly lined up..thats how anal I am..lol....but PV, the cds are a bit too much..lol


What do TimTams do to me? mmmm....Give me an Aussie...or an englishman and hand him a tim tam and I'll...

hmm..
better keep it clean..
yeah better not to ask that question else I'll be all wound up...I have a thing for Englishmen and Aussie men and timtams just rock!

Perfect Virgo said...

Kimberly - excuse my ignorance I'm a foreigner you know! I get the picture now though you young scamp!!!

The CD sorting is fine by me but like you everyone else laughs their socks off. I never lose CDs though!

A place for everything and everything in it's place - yep you and me are gonna get along just fine. Oh god you should see my sock drawer (i have to have them ironed flat!)

I have a ton of cleaning, scrubbing and scouring stuff. I do all the cleaning in our house because I want it done properly!

Kimberly said...

haha...you have no idea how hard I laugh at this...me too! I refuse to let any cooking,cleaning or laundry done but me...when i was married i told my ex-husband that all he needed to do was go to work.....help pay the bills and come home only to me and I wil do everything else myself..dont lift a finger...I want it done right the first time....


as for my cd's....I'm funny, they are all in my car..lol....no cd player in the house and my car has a 6 disk changer so i leave them in there...


you IRON the socks?!?!?! oh my god....I don't go that far...but I do have them all folded neatly and when my boys get theirs from their drawers I cringe because I know they toss everything about then I have to fix it....your so silly PV:) but your just like me:)

Perfect Virgo said...

Kimberly - I have a CD changer too but I keep CDR copies in there and change them around periodically. The originals stay indoors.

Some people think the tidiness/cleanliness thing is a bit obsessive but if that's the way you are then you can't change. Anyway I like it this way and I can tell you do to.

Glad to make you laugh.

Kimberly said...

I defo like it this way:)

The Flea said...

My goodness, this conversation seems to have gone a touch haywire in my asbence. I like it!

I must admit, I like the sound of your CD collection Virgo. You file EXACTLY how I do. And when it comes to my books (over three bookshelves full), the system is almost the same. By genre, by author, then by size, publisher and/or chronological order. As you say, if you need anything, you know exactly where it can be found.

And Kimberly, being an Aussie myself and a lover of Tim-Tams (especially the dark chocolate variety), I am intrigued by all your insinuations. Or like Virgo said, are you just being a scamp? LOL

Perfect Virgo said...

Flea - bringing order out of chaos, it's the way forward! Your library sounds very well organised, nice.

Kimberly said...

I am not a scamp. I am being serious...Tim Tams, Aussie and Englishmen are the way!.....seriously

My fave tim tams are the caramel ones....dip em' in hot coffee and mmmmmm........I wonder if....omg n/m
lmao


I get all excited talking about my fave sort of blokes....can ya blame me? I could of said I like.....russian men..lmao...or better yet...russian women..hahahaha...ewww

Perfect Virgo said...

Kimberly - I am not being serious when I say scamp! I'm pulling your leg!

No I can't blame you, feel free to talk about your favourite blokes all you like. My blog is as good a forum for that as any. I love to hear your enthusiasm and optimism. I do believe it is good for me!

Now then, these Tim Tams sound delicious. I have transferred my addictive personality to chocolate these days. Biscuits or slabs I don't mind. Despite that, I remain as skinny as a racing snake...

NMAMFQLMSH said...

Holy cow you really do buy a lot of CD's. I'm jealous.
Peace bro,
JJ

Kimberly said...

PV: Tim Tams are the BEST!!!!!!!!!! the best! chocolate biscut ever made on the face of the planet..........we dont get them here in the USA but I have mates in tasmania Aussi land that send them to me about once a year, usually 6 packs at a time and they last me..ooooo....3 -4 days..lmao

I'm thin as a rail too PV...gotta love being able to eat what you want right?

The Flea said...

This is hilarious. It seems like we're all in the same boat here. And aren't we lucky?

I can wolf down anything I like and not put on weight. Today, I've had a bacon and egg roll, a caramel slice, a sandwich and a piece of cake and it's only 2pm.

And if you've never had a Tim-Tam PV, I pity you. They're devilish self-indulgence in a biscuit.

Kimberly, have you ever bitten off a fragment of two opposing corners, dipped one corner in coffee and sucked the coffee up through the other corner? If not, I advise that you do! But one must be quick about eating it afterwards, otherwise the fast-melting Tim-Tam quickly turns to soffee-soaked sludge.

Hehehe . . . mmmmmm yeah!

Perfect Virgo said...

JJ - if I decide something is worth doing then I do it to extremes. Guess you can sympathise with that trait! Plus of course there's the virgo impulse to collect.

Turn the volume up and let it flood through you, there are few better feelings. It's breakfasr time in my house and I'm listening to Green Day!

Love, sis

Kimberly - 6 packs in 4 days implies you may need therapy! Careful though, as the years roll by it may have a tendency to head straight for the hips!

Flea - funny I already had this mental image of you as a hungry, wiry rogue! In truth I am a lazy eater and will go a day or two on next to nothing. I have to be in the mood to eat.

A boat full of stick insects, how bizarre!

Kimberly said...

Fleah: I eat more then that before noon everyday...just ask my co-workers....I am a pig! and when Jessica brings cupcakes to work. i always eat at least 6..lmao

can't help it! My excuse always is..'I'm a growing girl!'
but it doesn't work with the others..lol

flea I thik i did mention the tim tam coffee dunking bit....yeah i learned that from my aussie mates in Tas, they taught me how to bite off a tidbit one each end and dunk and slurp and quick pop in the ole chompers..that makes it soooooo good when it melts in your mouth, its like heavenly silk!

damn....i havent had any in....oh yeah i had some 3 weeks ago...but now they are all gone :( I could cry...i miss the hazelnut special edition ones they had the one easter....hazenut praline i believe


PV: most the women in my family have the gene to be short and pudgy, i take after the men, tall and thin as a rail....i got sooo lucky...im not worried about the hips:)

NMAMFQLMSH said...

OMG bro I couldn't agree more.

The Flea said...

Virgo -- your image was quite correct. Although "rogue" sounds a touch too cool for me. LOL

And Kimberly -- it appears that I am preaching to the converted. You're obviously schooled in all the fine arts of the Tim-Tam. I even wonder whether you could teach me a thing or two.

Perfect Virgo said...

JJ - so you're a chocolate biscuit lover too!!

Flea - wiry and cool as a cucumber!

Jen said...

So very, neatly organized. I would expect nothing less from a Virgo. ;-)

Perfect Virgo said...

Jen - this tidiness thing is an affliction!
