12 Single Couches Great Condition


Cash only and pick up only please

You know, where I come from we call these chairs.

If they were French Prudential couches I would think about it. (Huh, it’s been a while since we had a good French Prudential post, hasn’t it?)

Thanks, Angela!

          I don’t think I qualify as an old fart yet but I have a record of Three Dog Night. I once had a slightly drunken professor stumble up to me at a conference and insist I was too young to be named after a character in Dr. Zchivago. I had to point out that my parent’s named me and they saw the movie in the theater. The book is still also in print after all.

          Very good, Bridgete! The ones on chairs and sofas were called antimacassars, because they were placed where a man’s head would hit the upholstery and prevent soiling from his Macassar hair oil. This would be late 19th century.

          Recall, too, that doilies were ‘knit’ (term-of-art is tat).

          The tatting of doilies being seen a s good task for young ladies lest they play with their lupens and daffodils or the like. Which could lead to that ultimat UK methodist horror: dancing! (the shame the shame).

          A house full of normally-hormoned girls could doily up like it was snowing tat, too. After a while, people expected to see doilies on doilies on doilies. You get them 3, 4, deep, they are a decent coaster, other than one’s glass is very “tippy” (yet another reason for a saucer under the tea cup).

          Next time you see a grandmotherly house chock-a-brim in doilies, just consider all the pent-up sexual frustration that represents . . .

    Apparently he still lives with his mother and can’t do laundry or cook. He’s a bit of a French pervertial and will chase anything with 4 well-turned legs. Rumor is that while he appreciates a nice chester, he’s actually an ottom man.

          Laurel, I’ve done just that more times than I care to remember. Even worse is getting a piano stuck in the stairwell and having to disassemble it to clear the stairway. Several hundred dollars gone in one crappy move.

        I would love it if I could shrink my furniture every time I move. What I’d also love would be shrinking my car every time I get somewhere — I’d make it matchbox-sized and carry it in my pocket. I wouldn’t have to search for a parking spot, and I wouldn’t have to memorize said spot in order to find the car again. AND, it would never get stolen!

    OT: I know, I’ve been MIA. I have a new-ish retail job, but I’ve been there a few weeks so that’s not the whole reason. It’s mostly just that I got really into the book I was reading (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and even YSaC couldn’t drag me away. πŸ˜‰

    OT 2: Bar exam results are probably going to be sent out next week. They have to be sent by Nov. 15th, but in previous years it’s been around the last week of October. Soooo, anyway…I’ll let you know when those come in. Fingers crossed!

      Bridgete, I totally understand! The movie was IMPRESSIVE! My film club is going to show the sequel as a special viewing, and then fit the last one into the rotation for our next season.

        Savannahs are said to be great companion pets, too. You just need to be able to afford to feed them (and the accessories are of a unique size, too)

        They say that if you start early as kittens, you can convice them to be bathed in tubs, and to swim and the like, too. Need to human-socialize them early, so you can do nail care, and teach how to play with dogs and kids apporpriately, too.

      He lived to be about 20 years old, once when he was just a wee lizard (2feet long) I had him on my shoulder in the grocery store. Some lady saw him and said, “Is that real, EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” as he jumped onto her shoulder.
