I hate it.
Right now I'd take 20 girls in a nasty Holland Park YHA over this.

The moving is not the dilemma. The basement is.
The basement is fairly spacious, at least for one person. And I will be the only one down there (except when you all come for mercy visits). But it feels tight, close. The ceiling isn't very high, there is a short narrow hall formed by the end of a flight of stairs. I'm worried it will turn into eg's cave of unwonders.
(Side note: I'm going to kick my brother-in-law if he doesn't stop with the annoying laugh and the baby talk.)
The solution to this dilemma, I think, is to decorate. First step: remove Sister's kitsch. Second step: paint the long wall* in the "living room." But what color should I paint it? I've been thinking blue, but most of my favorite art that I'll want to hang feature deep reds and yellows and oranges. Is there a better color option? And did I mention the really ugly green carpet? No? There is really ugly green carpet.
*Actually, I'm only going to paint half of the wall--the top half. The bottom half is going to be white--not off-white, but white. And then I'm going to get creative. It's going to be hecka cool. Just you wait.
P.S. Is Andy Warhol cliché? Because I'm really liking this series:

not blogging more while in England
not finishing more of my thesis before I left
not buying more chocolate in England
not taking more pictures like this one
or this one
choosing to go caps-less for this post
also the whole "hard return between items" choice
not stalking Fiyero after seeing Wicked
not emailing Eleka to tell her I saw it on the front row
moving to the basement
promising that I wouldn't choose paint for said basement based solely on its name
voting "no roommate" for next year
not having the guts to get Edgy to choose the color scheme for the basement
