A bright yellow room!
Hi! I'm Naomi, I'm twenty-one, from Sydney, Australia, and an aspiring astronomer. I also like bright colours. (Very) long time lurker (as in, a few years? Oops XD), first time poster. Yay, finally! Most of the stuff I love is, by no fault or choice of my own, reasonably obscure (apparently!). Aside from Doctor Who and the prerequisite Harry Potter books, of course! Forty-three images. I don't think I need to say that it's IMAGE HEAVY... Won't you come in? Behold! My room. (From the door.) Looking back at the door. Glass House t-shirts, bags, jacket. On the wall - planets, antique map calander. And a bit of shelf. More planets, more shelf, CD tower. Shelves! Trinkets (includes origami elephant that a comedian made for me, and pewter Turlough), cassettes, and Star Wars and DAAS videos. CDs (the rest are in the tower), matryoshka doll my sister got in Russia, DVDs. Replica sunface my Mum got in Mexico, DAAS record. Under the shelves. Mirrors, foil butterfly from Mardi Gras in, like, 2005, candles, incense holder, steam engine. Books! Plus, incense. Missing copy of Good Omens. More books! Harry Potter. Yet more books! Science. Even more books! Comedy! Holy crap, more books! Doctor Who. Finally, an end to the books! The disorganised corner. Bag, folders, shoes, jacket, laundry basket. Home is where you hang your Christmas hat....On your Dalek. Yes, that's an inflatable Dalek. Also: guess my favourite writer! The Glass House cakehat, my grandfather's old microscope, and a box with medicines, my phone charger, and annoying little things like safety pins. I... have a thing for maps. A lot. Also, lei from my Mum's cruise. Moving on! Well, that worked out well. On top of the drawers. Daily use stuff. Also - talavera sun mask that my Mum also bought in Mexico. Trinkets! Includes two stone rings (red jaspar and hematite), some hematite, a tektite, a blue rock thing, and some pressed pennies from my trip to the US - Tomorrowland, the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens, and the Exploratarium in San Francisco. Magazines, and the pile of libary books of DOOM. The magazines are almost entirely New Scientist, except for the red star one - that has back issues of the Chaser, and maps that aren't up in my room. Mirror, clock, top of nebula poster. IT'S LOOKING AT YOU. Desk! Under the bed. Other side of the under-bed area. That trunk is SO USEFUL. What I look at every day. Maps meet astronomy - it's Venus! Also: 806.4616.0110 - you are here. Stationary. And my other Martha. WHITEBOARD O' DOOM. I have a crapload of stuff on it - a postcard/ticket stub from the cable cars at San Fran, a piece of silver stuff from the last ever Glass House, Daffodil Day pin, playing cards from Sideshow, Sold Out thingo from a Melbourne Comedy Festival, stamps, and dubloons, also from Sideshow. Plus, ID card things from Gallifrey One. This picspam has been brought to you by... a Threatening Bear. Grr. (Vote Saxon!) They have articles and stuff in them - who needs scrapbooks when you have scrapBOXES? Timetable for class, tourist map of San Fran, more ID thingies, a Vote Saxon lanyard, and postcards, also from Gally. Up on to bed! The Moon, Mars, and Martha!bear. Star charts. Circa 1972. Looking across from the top of my bed. From my bed. Onwards! In lieu of a real window - a skywindow! Yes, it opens. That's all! I just realised - in not one photo can you see my world map (it's over the drawers). It's from 1957. It's fabulous! Most of the maps are from the fifties to the seventies, and were originally collected by my uncle.
