furniture rant

Okay.. it’s been what.. an hour? time for a rant.

#1, it’s obvious I spend way too much time per day chatting. Somehow, I manage to get all my work done to everyone’s satisfaction.. I just wonder how much more productive I’d be otherwise.

Anyway… the rant. Why won’t guys spend money on furniture? The place we’re moving has the space for us to have a breakfast room and a dining room.. yet between myself and my two roomies, we don’t own anything but TV trays. I USED to have a table, pre-move in with the current BF, but didn’t have space for it. Now the space is back.. $150 could get a cute dinette, and the big bucks making BF doesn’t think it’s worth it. He’d be perfectly content with a huge empty living room.. which it will be since we’ve got a den in this place, and that’s where everything is going. TV, couch, chairs… desks… So, now, people will walk in and see.. big empty kitchen, empty dining room, empty living room, and stairs up and down… and nobody seems to care but me.

I spend time online picking out cool stuff.. dinette, coffee table, bookshelf.. crazy stuff, huh? and send him links and he doesn’t even reply. When I get into the “not replying” I may just go off no another whole rant, but maybe not right now.

Well, looks like the already pretty broke girl will be spending her own spare dough on such silly things as furniture rather than silly things like playstation games, posters, infrared dead bolt locks for the front door, car wax that costs $100, $50 dvds to calibrate the home theater…. girls just have different priorities I guess. Wonder if somehow I can keep the guys from USING the furniture if they don’t want to pay for it…

we’ll see.
