1. What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now?
In the shower because I don't have a bathtub, alas. I mostly use Kneipp lavender, which is a soap free cleanser. I also have Dr Bronner liquid soap, in lavender and almond. And a mint eucalyptus shower gel. No bar soap.

2. Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?
No. As a kid I once overate on watermelon, and to this day it makes me queasy.

I hope not, but I would not take a bet on it.

A bowl from me, and the mushy food bowl from the cat, with some utensils.

I have my eye on a really nice apothecary cupboard, with glass shelves in the top half. Hopefully later this year.

I don't own a dishwasher, I don't have room for it, and it would be horribly decadent since I live by myself.

Yes. I could stand to be slightly less anal here.
