Oh, my dear sweet jesus...

The scavenger gods have smiled upon me this time.

On the street, on Large Waste Disposal Day, we found...


A "U"-shaped bowling alley diner booth sofa.

One panel is sparkly blue. The top and back support are sparkling red, with two black stripes on the largest of the back panels. The seat cushion is sparkly gold.

It is...so tacky. I am in a state of trancendent kitsch.

The principal problem is, it's 3 inches too wide to fit into any of our current doors. Briefly it looked like it would come through the kitchen window. I think Badger's going to have to take apart the sliding glass door to get this to work...

Life...life is so good :)

*Ponders if the Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft this sofa from the bosom of the water signifying by divine providence that you, Spotty, was to carry this furniture home.*

Yes, this will go quite nicely with your pea-soup green, gingham curtains and egg-yellow love seat. =)

Gingham? Pea-soup? Please, don't make comment on my sins against interior design until you've seen my sins. I'm going to have the only bowling alley couch covered in skulls in the northern hemisphere.

> sparkling red ... sparkling blue ... gingham ...

I desperately want to see your apartment on 'Trading Spaces' or 'Queer Eye' or somesuch..

No, on "Queer Eye" they have to find someone who's willing to upgrade their life in some way. I'm happy with my god-awful shirts and "USA Today" furniture. And I'd just cap the little food and wine guy, right there, bang, dead. It'd be a mess. But most of my furniture wipes clean :)

What this says about your lifestyle can be interpreted in so very many unsavory and/or enviable ways

The Magical Skull Fairie
BTW did you like the addition we dropped off?
Jan. 3rd, 2004 02:46 pm (UTC)
Oh, yes, it was a lovely addition to the skulls. Thank you!!!

It's said that a thing of beauty is a joy forever. I don't have the faintest idea how that applies to your new seaty-couchy thing, but perhaps it's a schadenfreude forever, or something. :D

P.S. Arrived safely in California, flight went as well as any flight can be expected to, and I've arrived in a relatively undespairing frame of mind. Love-loves. :D

You've added WHAT to your living room? I guess this will remove a few of the random furniture placements. A entire BOOTH. Well, at least now there's a table! But good gaud.. Our decorateing schemes could do battle, I believe..

No table, just a couch--anyway, it's in the garage right now, it's too damn big to fit in the living room! i'll have pictures up in the near future...
