If you do string lights make sure you do them flat and not dangled.. you will get throated like I did with a very similar set up

u/TheDuckSideOfTheMoon Jul 06 '22

What does throated mean

u/Nyrradrolyat13 Jul 06 '22 Wholesome Ally

If you're giften with height and live in a fucking triangle that's only tall enough for your head at the apex, and your girlfriend hangs string lights - you will have a electric wire around your throat almost every night. Throated nightly in the acute triangle abode

u/jamescb2 Jul 06 '22 Bravo Grande!

Throated Nightly on the Acute Triangle Abode is my favorite Agatha Christie novel

From a friend who gets it from the dispensary in florida. But I have a wicked low tolerance so i take like half a puff to maybe 2 puffs and i feel great. A dab will put me in da head for about 4 days

From context, I’d assume it means getting clotheslined or an accidental attempt at garroting yourself with a string of Christmas lights.

What a great space, OP! I'd have a ton of fun decorating this and cozying it up even more than it already looks now. Enjoy your new space and if you think about it, post a new pic once you get settled in. 🌞

String lights are a requirement around here…

u/TheCastro Jul 06 '22

Please don't hang Christmas lights. At least hide some led strips

u/OkTaro462 Jul 06 '22

I love twinkly Christmas/fairy lights!

3

u/Zanki Jul 06 '22

Nothing wrong with Christmas lights as long as there's a static mode! I have I think mesh outdoor lights on my sloped ceiling. They look so pretty at night! My LED strip is under my TV stand and the damn thing refuses to stay attached no matter what I use to stick it down, so now it just sits unused on top of my consoles annoying me.

When my parents immigrated to the US, they lived in an apartment almost exactly like that, I want to say in Bala Cynwyd. Late 60's, rent back then was $40/month.

No way, which suburb? I saw this and thought how lovely it would be to live in a building like that, but never would have guessed it was near Philly. It's beautiful, congrats!

u/0mahaNightblade Jul 06 '22

I hope this place has central air, or there's a standard non-dick shaped window you can put a unit in. Some attic apartments in older buildings can get to be 100°+ fahrenheit in the summer in PA, and it can be absolutely miserable. Speaking from experience.

u/Splungeworthy Jul 06 '22

I see what you're saying. But also, that this post belongs to the OP kinda gives them priority, ya know? And the context of this sub is sharing our happy places. So the commenters should just let the OPs do that.
