The Lazy Ramblings of a Lazy Man (On Furnished Apartments)

The Man Down My Local (14).png

I was recently introduced to the Idle Thoughts Of An Idle Fellow by Jerome K Jerome. The book consists of 14 essays on 14 topics

  1. ON BEING IDLE.
  2. ON BEING IN LOVE.
  3. ON BEING IN THE BLUES.
  4. ON BEING HARD UP.
  5. ON VANITY AND VANITIES.
  6. ON GETTING ON IN THE WORLD.
  7. ON THE WEATHER.
  8. ON CATS AND DOGS.
  9. ON BEING SHY.
  10. ON BABIES.
  11. ON EATING AND DRINKING.
  12. ON FURNISHED APARTMENTS.
  13. ON DRESS AND DEPORTMENT.
  14. ON MEMORY.

Jerome K Jerome is pretty much me down to a tee. He’s lazy and just writes whatever comes to mind. He doesn’t care who he offends, and I often felt that he may have been somewhat high when he picked up the pen. But Mr Jerome has inspired me, so I am going to be writing a series of posts on the topics that Mr Jerome turned his hand at. (I know I’m ripping the guy off, but quite frankly I don’t care).

On Furnished Apartments 

No where I’ve ever lived has ever actually come furnished, except for the student house I lived in while at uni, and it got me thinking, are the days of furnished rental properties behind us. Most of my friends, those who don’t still live with their parents, are living in rental properties and very few of those came with furniture.

My current home came unfurnished, and because money has been tight, I seem to have come by three different sofas, none of which match, and because I’m a heterosexual male I can’t be dealing with things such as cushions and throws, so I just opt to say that its eclectic.

My decorating is just a simple keep everything white. White walls, white Ikea bookcases, white coffee tables all on laminate flooring surrounding the “eclectic” sofa’s and the reclining arm chair that doesn’t actually recline. At least over time its starting to look like a home, and less like a student house, although I’m fairly certain the sofa in my “man cave” has the exact same cover as the sofa in that shared student house.

This is the twelfth in a series of posts ripping off the work of Mr Jerome K Jerome and his seminal piece The Idle Thoughts Of An Idle Man.
