It's like Arabian Knights... but not.

Imagine...

Soft flowy cushions... um, er, well, blankets...

Stacks 6 feet high of pillows everywhere... um, er, well, we have a few pillows...

Lounging in paradise with barely dressed harem girls and boys feeding us grapes and fanning us... um, er, well, we have two cats wondering what the hell is going on...

It's like our own wonderful oasis, if that meant our apartment without any seating.

Yes, I am posting this on the floor. Next to me is kathryntact, on the floor. In front of us are our two cats... you guessed it... on the floor.

We have no love seat nor chair any longer. They were taken away, headed to the great place in the sky that old love seats and matching chairs go. Heralded by angels in green from the NY Sanitation Department.

On Sunday, we ordered a new couch. My first ever big furniture purchase that didn't come from Sleepy's or IKEA. To be honest, I felt like I was slightly cheating on the entire Swedish nation. But we do what we must.

Alas, today was the only day the old furniture could go away. So now we sit. On the floor. Marveling over the fact that two people that most would reasonably considered to be adults, are left sitting on the floor.

So... um... anyone want to come over for a picnic? Hee!

Re: yay picnic!!!
I hate to say this, but it's looking like I won't be at Frolicon this year. I'm not teaching... so unless I somehow figure out how to afford both the airfare there and a trip to SF later in the month, and find someone's hotel room to crash in, you guys will have to party without me this time around.

Nooooooooooo!!
I can't help with airfare, but can (most likely) offer space in my room.

Is driving an option?

Ooh, sounds like a fun evening!

What couch are you getting or which store? I've been looking for a "studio sofa" or similar. 68"-70" ideal. Napability is a must. Is that a word? It should be. I'm seriously thinking Macy's.

Can I negotiate for some swarm-of-ants play time if you do set up a picnic? :)
