This week's homework: The Wannas

For this week's homework, Scalzi asks:

Weekend Assignment #74: Forget about the things you need -- Tell us about something you want. Preferably something useless and/or expensive. In other words: Toys! Something fun and/or sparkly and/or indulgent that you don't already have but wouldn't mind getting, if someone were offering.

Extra Credit: Do you really think getting that toy would make you happier?

As you may have noticed (see the entry right beneath this one), I've got bathrooms on my mind.  What with the leak from the bathroom upstairs, the hole in my ceiling to investigate it, the damage done to the wallpaper from the aforementioned items, and the, er, mold, I'm definitely going to need some new drywall and a paint job. 

Don't believe me?  Here's a couple shots which I hope someday to refer to as the "before" pictures:

Lovely, innit? 

So, fixing up this area is something I need.  But looking around at all the cool things you can do to your bathroom has definitely given me a case of the wants.  I mean, sure, repairing all this would be nice, but wouldn't it be even nicer if I put in, oh, a ten-jet body spa multi-shower-head shower?  With footbath?  Or a seven-thousand dollar whirlpool bath with water-jet back massage?

As for the extra credit question, do I really think getting this would make me happier?  Ask me again when I'm immersing myself in all that hydro-luxury.  Pool boy!  More champagne please.

Your shower needs a shower.
