I have slept through earthquakes in California and Japan. Through tornadoes in Tennessee, hurricanes in Florida and, not to forget, loud next door neighbor’s parties in New York City BUT I don’t/can’t/won’t fall asleep if there is any light in the room!!
I moved into this apartment in February 2004 and the first thing I did was pull up or take off the blinds in the kitchen, bathroom, living room south and east windows and they haven’t been down since! (Pictures 1-4)
By the way living on the top (third floor), and the way my apartment is situated, I can walk around nude and the only things people can see is my nude chest, nude top back and my face/head. (TMI?)
The second thing I did was buy black plastic shower liners and, using duct tape and clear tape, taped them up. Yes for 11 years I lived with tacky taped on ‘curtains’! For 11years I never saw the blinds and windows behind them--still haven‘t! (Pictures 5 and 6!)
For some reason I decided it was time to get blackout curtains though I had them on my gift wish list for my 20th Leap Year birthday party and I ordered them from Target. I spoke to John about the rods and he said he was going to Home Depot the next day and he would pick them up--also VOLUNTEERED to hang them up. (Hey I milked wearing the leg brace and my 0 mechanical ability for all I could!)
In any case after 11 years being a kid at heart I wanted them put up yesterday but he put them up the next day!! (Pictures 7 and 8)
Because of the way the rods would hang, slightly away from the wall, I decided to keep the original plastic ‘curtains’ up figuring the new curtains would hide them anyway and would keep the room dark.
Pictures 9 and 10 were taken at midnight--it is dark folks!!--while 11 and 12 were taken at Noon.
I love my DARK ROOM! Thanks John!
