cv - ninja's (current) favourite hang-out


Booooooooring. I know, I know, but this ninja's got a cold (again? still?) so this little corner's has been, since Saturday, a bit of a safe haven for her in the evenings.

I got myself that red beauty up there on the Interwebs for a silly silly price. Remember my make-do-pretendy-polder-sofa-(and-very-uncomfortable)-temporary-solution? Well, it was time to sit on a proper couch and, following the advice of a few good people, I went on an online comb of the area for second-hand options; thinking there was no way in hell I'd get what I wanted. Well, I was wrong. Long story short, this is an old sofa but I totally love the model and the colour (cherry red, a bit like Di's slippers.) It's a bit knackered in places to be perfectly honest (but nothing a good dry-cleaning wouldn't sort out) and I'm a much happier ninja now I'm not sitting on the floor any longer.

Right, that's me. Book, music, paper, film, hot tea. January ninja hang-out. In fact, what the hell am I doing behind this screen drafting tomorrow's cv post? Off to that couch it is.

  6. My couch is also cherry red. Actually, it was: the color has now faded quite a bit, after 15 years of hard use. And guess what, right now I'm sitting on my faded cherry red couch!
