    ^^ I'll give you a hand and you'll let me crash on your couch whenever I'm in the mood, alright?
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!

    Checkered curtains with a floral bedspread, really? I love the apartment, but most of the decor needs to go.

    I'd love to be able to go for a stroll any time in the palace's magnificent gardens!

    I, too, would change a lot of the decor. I love all but the kitchen. It could be the angle, but it's way too small and narrow...claustrophobic.

    The place is ok (hate the bedspread) but the broad with the huge stick up her ass has to go!
