FridayQ: Broken

Broken things.

FQ1: What are some items of yours that are broken or needing repair right now?

At the moment:

  • The lock on the bathroom door
  • The TV aerial
  • The kitchen door

And probably a few other things.

FQ2: When something breaks, do you tend to live with it broke, repair it yourself, have a professional fix it, or throw it out?

We’re leaving the bathroom door broken for now, since it’s probable that it’ll only get broken again (if you knew my housemates that would probably make sense). The other two are the responsibility of the landlord and he’s yet to do anything about them. So we’ve had no proper telly since December and no kitchen door in at least 6 months.

FQ3: Is there a childhood toy, family heirloom, or some other special item which was broken that you’d very much like to have un-broken?

I didn’t so much as break my toys as lose them. I don’t know if I’d want to un-lose them, since I don’t think I’d have the time to play with a plastic truck anymore.

FQ DESTROYER: What is something you would like to break intentionally, assuming you could get away with it?

George W Bush’s kneecaps 😉 .

  1. Do you live in my house without me realising it? We also have no lock on the bathroom door, a dead tv arial and a kitchen door that is hanging off it’s hinges and won’t close.
