Question: Does 'abject' not go well with 'penury'?
It does doesn't it? I do like it when words go together well. Abject penury, I'm certainly pwore, and approaching penury, but not quite abject penury. Fortunately, all that will change in the week to come. I'm waiting for the next billing cycle in my credit card to kick in so that I can purchase certain items that will make my life more comfortable.

I said, "It must be 10 O'clock", and he looked puzzled.
"Don't look so puzzled, Little D", I said and continued, "It's only the bathroom fan coming on". He cocked his head to the side, and asked me (quite rudely I thought), "Just how much have you drunk?!".
|Chinook the wind, not the fish|
See, it's quite simple, really. Anyway, I turned off the fan which is set to go on at 10pm, and KB immediately felt warmer.
But back to abject penury - there are items I must get soon as my back will no longer support sitting in a decaying office chair which is too short for a counter top. While you may find it easier to scoop food into your mouth when it's closer to the dish, it's not a very appetizing sight. And with all the shiney surfaces around, it's hard to avoid your own reflection - after all, unlike my erstwhile landlords, I'm no blood-sucking vampire.

There's another item which I would like to get - and I know ML will approve heartily of this item too. It's the Dyson tower fan. Bladeless, silent, gentle streams of air and oh so stylish. If I can't get a dyson hand-dryer in my bathroom, this is the closest I can get to it. One problem - it's only marginally cheaper than the table I want to get.
Then again, it runs hot and cold...so really, i'm getting two fans for the price of one - and really, it's a whole lifestyle solution....yes, I do like that. I can use it in the winter to warm my room, and in the summer to cool the same room - why it would be like having the ability to conjure up a Chinook (the wind, not the fish), or a Mistral at will. I could practically control the weather then! The SOCK will be jealous. Goodness, it's more than a heating/cooling fan, it's a climate control device. And being a multi-functional climate control device, it would suit my all-climate table. Yes? It's synchronicity, it's a sign.
Seen in this light, this
So, ML - what colour do you think? I prefer the blue myself.
